the first s550 electric mustang

I just returned from the SEMA show in Sin City, and what a blast that was! The event is great for catching up with industry friends and checking out the latest hardware, and it always gives me a lot to talk about. This year was no different, but the topic is. I’m usually not one for talking electric cars, but Ford unveiled the first S550 electric Mustang, and, well, that elicited a lot of emotions from the Mustang community. Love or hate it, the electric car revolution is here and it won’t be going away anytime soon. Now, this isn’t to say that our beloved Pony car is converting to electric overnight, but instead, this is a perfect showcase of how today’s technology can match up with a modern-day high-performance Mustang. For…

a little help from my friends

“I started this build to have a fun and fast street car,” Jimmy Smith begins about his reasons behind this badass Grabber Blue single turbo Coyote S197. “I love the car and I wanted to push the limits on how fast I could actually go with a car I still drive around town and go on longer drives with. I do it for the love of cars and the feeling you get cruising around. Making a pass in a 1,000-plus horsepower car is unbelievable!” Jimmy is a Roseville, California, native and law enforcement civilian, who happens to be an avid Mustang enthusiast. While his Grabber Blue S197 is what many people’s dreams are made of, the car is the result of humble beginnings, hard work, and a network of irreplaceable friends…

mounting pressure

Naturally aspirated, Ford’s latest Coyote-powered Mustangs are quick, especially when plunked in a lightweight car. But in our quest for 8-second timeslips in a relatively heavy S197-chassis Mustang, we knew we’d need quadruple-digit horsepower numbers. The easiest way to get there was boost, and the easiest way to add boost is with a supercharger. The engineers at ProCharger are ready for racers like us. After we made a brief phone call, ProCharger sent us a system that will easily meet our needs. Starting with a Stage II Intercooled Tuner Kit designed for the 2011 Mustang GT, ProCharger substituted the standard-issue P-1SC-1 blower with an upgraded F-1A-94 unit and the race bypass valve. The rest of the kit is standard Stage II Tuner issue, including the larger air-to-air intercooler and dedicated eight-rib…

second-chance pony

When the S197 platform was released in 2005, the performance aftermarket latched on to the car in a way it had never done before. New and exciting go-fast components seem to be released almost daily. This was an extremely exciting time to be a Mustang enthusiast, but the performance world was evolving right before our eyes. During the late ’80s and early ’90s, if you had a 12-second Mustang it was extremely impressive. But the car had come so far, and in the right hands the S197 was a solid 12-second car off the showroom floor. When you added [insert favorite speed parts here], your horsepower increased and track numbers dropped. The days of easily owning a 10-second street car were here, and here to stay. Occasionally in life, things are…

preparing for boost

Ford Performance has been an innovator in aftermarket engine systems that allow engine builders to express their creativity. The 5.3L Mod motor crate short-block is one of Ford Performance’s best. This short-block is terrific as-delivered, allowing builders to simply strap on cylinder heads, camshafts, and fuel injection and head down the road. But for those looking to develop something special, this short-block is up for whatever you can throw at it. Wanting to be able to run pump gas when possible, we decided to install lower-compression pistons to replace the original 10:1-compression Mahle pistons that come with this engine. That’s not because there’s a problem with the Ford-installed Mahle pistons—not hardly. But we knew that with a 10:1-compression engine, we would have to add measures to protect against detonation, such as…
