how fast do you want to go?

Times sure have changed. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: It used to be that if you had 500 hp to the wheels, you were probably the center of attention at your local digs. These days the Coyote powerplants are throwing down 400-plus to the wheels without even trying. Add in your supercharger of choice and you’ve got a stout ride that’ll boogie down the quarter-mile into the 10-second zone and do it, dare I say, pretty easily. Take it a bit further with pipes, a fuel system to support that added power, suspension and stickies, and you now have a ride that’ll dip into the 9-second zone and possibly even quicker. This month’s cover car, Chase Lautenbach’s 2019 S550 GT, is a perfect example of what I’m…

The tires dig into the track and the car lurches forward. The 10-speed automatic starts banging off the shifts. The Gen 3 Coyote never leaves the sweet spot of its powerband as the ProCharger P-1X whooshes the intercooled boost to keep the party going. Before you can count to 10, Chase Lautenbach’s 2019 Mustang blistered the quarter mile in 9.6 seconds at 148 mph—and he’s just getting started. Having founded the popular Street Car Takeover racing series, Lautenbach and his partner Justin Keith are all about going fast, but this particular project went from factory fresh to four digits in the blink of an eye. In fact, it still had paper tags on it when it crossed the modern performance-cred threshold of 1,000 hp at the wheels, and by the time…

averting driveline disasters

So you have installed all the cool stuff, like a supercharger, a big brake kit with six-piston brakes, aftermarket wheels, sticky tires, and performance suspension pieces. But as with any buildup, your vehicle is only as strong as its weakest link. In the case of our 2018 Mustang, the weak link was unfortunately our factory driveshaft and axles, both of which were going to be hard-pressed to deliver any form of long service due to the 600-plus horsepower emanating from our 5.0L engine. To improve the durability of the driveshaft and axle systems, we headed once again to our qualified curator of Mustang enhancements, Sal Gutierrez of Gear Driven Automotive, for a simple yet essential upgrade of these two components. Gutierrez had recently completed the suspension and braking system upgrades on…

bold as ice

“You better check yoself / Before you wreck yoself,” the lyrics flowed over the Pandora stream. “Cuz I’m bad for your health / I come real stealth.” While the street poet that crafted these rhymes has gone stealth as a Hollywood star, his gangsta rap origins are where it all began. The reverse can be said for this 2003 Mustang GT campaigned by Brian Parks and Chad Simpson. What began as a modestly powered Two-Valve street car morphed into a twin-turbo, 347 stroker-powered grudge machine with an appetite for boost and those blocks of frozen H2O. The plan definitely evolved over the years. The duo poured every spare moment and dollar into turning the daily driver into a track assassin. “We had thrown around a few names with our group during the build…

The reason that most of us want a Mustang Cobra is because it’s different from a standard Mustang GT. Every Mustang Cobra ever built had more horsepower, upgraded styling cues, and revised wheel designs compared to a standard Mustang GT. Basically the Cobra, in many a Mustang enthusiast’s eyes, is better than a GT. With anything, though, buying a car with more technology and performance built into it does have its drawbacks. There’s more to fix when it comes to upgraded factory cars. With our 1994 Cobra, we have certainly found that to be true. With the car being Terminator-swapped, and with blown head gaskets when we purchased the car, the engine had to be redone by MPR Racing Engines with fresh JE pistons, head gaskets, ARP hardware, an oil pump,…
