We had the privilege to do some really cool mods to a georgeous 50th Anniversary Edition 2015 Ford Mustang. Some of the things we did to it are, we added a 2.9L Whipple Supercharger and gauge pack. We installed an Air Lift Performance suspension system, replaced the sill plates with some personalized sill plates and then we set the lighting system (a little trickery was involved) to change the colors along with the rest of the lighting system. We also replaced the stock steering wheel with a new GT350 steering wheel.
First up, adding some more ponies to the pony.
Other than some great looking covers, the engine is stock at this point.
All these pieces and more have to fit in that same space!
We carefully remove the covers and the stock intake system.
Unboxed the intercooler/intake manifold.
Installed the intercooler/intake manifold and fuel rails. Fits nicely.
Buff has mounted the Whipple, put the pulley and belt on and is doing some wiring. He has also removed the front bumper so he can install the Low Temp Radiator (LTR). We also refer to it as the radiator for the intercooler.
Whipple really does a fantastic job of fabrication. Everything just works. Here the LTR and tank is mounted. After hooking up the pump, the bumper cover will go back on.
Now that the front bumper is back on it is time to update the throttle body to a billet 132MM eliptical (2000 CFM) throttle body. We bolt on the factory electric motor and bolt it directly to the Super Charger inlet.
The last thing before uploading the tune and firing it off, is to wrap it up with a great CAI (cold air intake).
Uploaded the tune and lit it off! Ran perfect right from the start. Runs smooth and has a very strong pull!
Ready for some gauges and test drive. After that it will come back in for the air suspension!
The gauges go where the stock oil pressure and vacuum gauge go. These plug right in and there is no need to do any programming.
Here is a video clip of a light pull to check the guages (turn up your sound & select HD). Sorry, hand held.
Next up, Air Suspension!
