The automotive world never stands still, both literally and figuratively. Technology is always improving and evolving to produce mountains of power with maximum efficiency. Back during the Mustang’s inception, all it took was a massive V8 and just enough traction to make it to the finish line in order to blow your socks off. These days, however, drivers want a muscle car that can do more than flex. They want it to be flexible. With over 50 years of engineering, Ford has been able to outrun most issues that keep their Mustang confined, except one—blow-by.
As 2016 approaches its end, I can’t help but reminisce. It’s been a wild ride and a lot has changed. We have a new president-elect, the Olympics took place in Brazil, Kim Kardashian was robbed at gunpoint, Ryan Lochte lied about being robbed at gunpoint, and Leo finally got his Oscar. You know what hasn’t changed? Our resolve to make awesome parts for our automotive community.
It was May 3 when we announced that we were going to make an intake for the 2015 Ford Mustang GT. … Continue Reading ››
It may seem that we have been dormant on this project, but trust me, the activity around this 2015 Mustang GT intake could not be more alive! In this update, I’ll outline the results of the extensive R&D we put this prototype through. Our Mustang’s V8 Coyote motor has spent a lot of time running with this our prototype intake, and we wanted to document the many steps along the way of this research. Our engineers believe they have tweaked this product to its full potential. So let’s dive right in!

In our last post we took a look at the fabrication of our all-new bar-and-plate oil cooler designed specifically for this project. Now that we have our coolers complete, it is on to testing. We will test our large bar-and-plate cooler, our small bar-and-plate cooler, and our traditional-style 19-row cooler. This will allow us to compare the effectiveness of our new design to the excellent heat exchangers we already offer.
We installed each version and gave them a chance to show us what they could do in not one, but two arenas of performance. Round 1 Fight!

We are now one step closer to completing this induction project! The bulk of our testing is just about finished and we have gotten some awesome results. One of our biggest objectives was to increase the internal volume over the stock intake. With more air surging through the hose, the potential for improved power output is increased as well.
