5.0 Mustang & Super Fords
Vortech Supercharged 2014 Mustang “Yellow Jacket” SEMA Bound
The amount of vehicles and projects headed to SEMA are almost endless, even just the Mustang portion. One particular Mustang was put together by the Vortech Supercharger team, a yellow 2014 Mustang dubbed Yellow Jacket.
“As a lifelong Ford fan, I was inspired to create this project car when I realized Ford doesn’t offer yellow on the 2014 Mustang,” said Brian Ellis, sales marketing and social media manager for AirPower Group. “We wanted to create something really eye-popping with a mechanical package to match the appearance.”
The team at Vortech decided on the Boy Racer body kit by 3D Carbon as well as a carbon-fiber cowl hood along with other carbon accents from TruFiber. All of the carbon-fiber components were covered in a yellow paint by DuPont.
With a build like this heading to SEMA, you need a strong powerplant to back it up. Powering the heart of this beast is a Coyote 5.0L V-8 engine mated to the Vortech V-3 Si supercharger good for 605hp and 473 lb-ft of torque on 7.5psi of boost.
Other goodies include a Webasto electronic sunroof, iForged Icon three-piece wheels in black chrome with a flat black lip (20 X 9-inch front, 20- X 11-inch in the rear) wrapped with Falken Azenis FK453 tires (275/40/20 front, 315/35/20 rear).
For incredible handling, a custom powder-coated Maximum Motorsports Road & Track box suspension package was installed on the Mustang. Also, Baer 6S six-piston brakes will provide stopping power to all four wheels.
We can’t wait to see it in person!
