Holley’s New Mustang Project Features Coyote VCT Controls #TENSEMA16
Yes, this is a sweet 1966 Mustang Fastback, but the real hook is the Ford Racing Aluminator XS Coyote engine and Holley EFI that controls the variable cam timing (VCT) system. In the past, in order to swap a Coyote into an older car, you had to lock out the cams and kill the low-end engine torque and drivability VCT gave larger cam profiles or lose horsepower at the top VCT gave smaller cam profiles. Controlling the VCT gives you both. This feature is in development for the Holley HP and Dominator EFI systems and should be available soon.
The rest of the drivetrain features other cool new stuff. The Tremec T-56 transmission uses a new Hays Dragon Claw clutch and stainless steel clutch lines, the brakes are from Baer with 6-piston calipers, and the fuel lines uses Earl's Ultra Pro Series hoses and ends.
The car sits low on a Detroit Speed frame with a Quadralink rearend, mini tubs, and an integrated rollcage. The body has Detroit Speed steel fender flairs. Those wheels are 10-18s and 12x18 EVODs with 275/35ZR18 and 336/30ZR18 tires. It's called the Corner Horse with a nod to the Kentucky Quarter Horse so plan to see it at Holley track events near its headquarters in Bowling Green.
