The Mustang GT Intake R&D, Part 3: Data Crunch

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! The GT looks … <a href=Continue Reading ››

Keep your Cool- Transmission Cooler R&D, Part 2: Prototype Fitment

In our last post, we took a look at the stock Mustang automatic transmission cooler and our plans to make it even better. We designed the cooler in Solidworks, based off the measurements obtained from both the GT and the stock cooler. We will be doing our R&D with this bold yellow GT, but based on our research, this cooler will fit all models of S550 Mustang including the EcoBoost and V6. But enough about fitments, the prototype is complete! It is time to see how well our digital design translated into a real-life prototype. Continue Reading ››

Keep your Cool – Transmission Cooler R&D, Part 1: Prototype Design

Over the past year we have been getting acquainted with our Mustang GT, and in the process we’ve developed an entire line of cooling products for it. In the spirit of staying cool, we are on to our next project, the Mustang GT Automatic Transmission Cooler.

Heat is generally the enemy of an automatic transmission. In fact, the Ford factory service manual notes that when the GT’s computer senses the transmission overheating, it will limit … Continue Reading ››

Working on a Cooler Coyote- Oil Cooler R&D, Part 4: Testing

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.

Testing

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! Contenders:

Upgrading Induction – Induction Hose R&D, Part 2: From Concept to Reality

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.
