Muscle Mustangs & Fast Fords
Dyno Wars! Part 4 - Shelby American
The 4,715HP Finale
2013 Ford Mustang GT
While every other competitor in Dyno Wars 4 was packing a built engine, the Addco GT was there to show off the capabilities of a daily-driven, bolt-on Coyote. Internally, the 5.0 engine was stone stock, externally it sported boost from a Hellion Eliminator twin-turbo kit, similar to the one we recently featured (Jan. '13) on a Boss 302.
"This 2013 Mustang started out as a base GT and the only upgrades from Ford are the automatic transmission, Recaro seats, and Sync," stated a representative from Addco, a leading antiroll-bar manufacturer for over 51 years.
"Our GT will be featured in the Addco booth at the SEMA show and it now has the handling worthy of the additional power with the solid Addco front and rear sway bars."
In addition to the twins, the GT benefited from 80-lb/hr injectors with an additional Vortech fuel pump and Borla 3-inch exhaust. It also has a host of suspension upgrades from BMR Fabrication and Whiteline. It's appearance was dialed in with Bonspeed wheels and Nitto tires, a 3dCarbon spoiler, and CDC RTR-style splitter and rear fascia. Completing the package is a tricked interior with Katzkin leather chairs with green stitching and a massive Kicker audio system with a unique in-dash iPad for tuning and audio/video.
"John [Uirst of Hellion] yielded incredible numbers on low boost and with the stock engine. The twin-turbo system works efficiently and still allows daily driver ability with excellent gas mileage," he added.
