This 2011 Ford Mustang GT is Naturally Aspirated and Powerful
Wesley Griffin • Knoxville, TN • 2011 GT
Knoxville resident Wesley Griffin is the proud owner of this 2011 Mustang 5.0L. The mods started after he encountered a Corvette that revved at his stock Mustang. When he made it home that same day, he ordered a pair of Roush axle-backs, an Airaid intake, and a tuner. A couple of months later he installed a set of 19-inch AMR wheels, taillight tint, a black decklid panel, and a GT500 rear spoiler. He then added a Boss 302 intake manifold and strut tower brace, a BBK 85mm throttle-body, a CDC front chin spoiler, and a Saleen grille. For more airflow, Wesley added Stainless Works long tube headers and an off-road X-pipe. He then ordered Eibach suspension with springs, shocks, struts, front and rear sway bars; BBK rear lower control arms; and a BMR rear upper control arm and adjustable Panhard bar. More recently Wesley added Ford Racing 3.73 gears and a Shaft Masters one-piece aluminum driveshaft. Stopping power is provided by Stoptech drilled and slotted rotors along with Russell stainless steel brake lines. Wesley isn’t finished. He hopes to tear into the motor soon with a goal of becoming the most powerful naturally aspirated Coyote Mustang.
