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:

Let Your Ponies Be Heard – Exhaust Component R&D, Part 6: Test Results

In our last post, we took a look at the axleback fabrication process. Now that our prototypes are on the GT and ready to rock, it is on to testing! While we were not expecting much in the power department out of these exhaust options, we still wanted to see how they sound on the dyno.

Let Your Ponies Be Heard – Exhaust Component R&D, Part 5: Axleback Fabrication

Last time we wrapped up our resonator-delete testing, and with that component good to go, we’re on to our next conquest, axleback exhausts. If you have not had a chance to take a look at our resonator deletes check out our blog posts HERE.

Axleback Fabrication

Any living, breathing car enthusiast knows that the exhaust is an important modification for modern muscle. Most owners want to rid themselves of the stock sound and let their pony car be heard right out of the gate. Being s550 owners ourselves, we want to hear the unrestricted growl of the Coyote in our GT, … Continue Reading ››
