One Sick 1993 Ford Mustang Coupe That Runs 7s on Pony R Wheels
An MPR-built, RGR-headed Three-Valve with twins is under the hood
In this day of Coyote-swap everything, one person bucking that trend, and making it work is JPC Racing’s Kevin MacDonald. His former 4-cylinder coupe now has a MPR-built Three-Valve with RGR/JPC Racing heads, Crower cams, a JPC Racing intake, Precision 62mm turbochargers, an air-to-air intercooler, and ID1700 injectors gulping E98. Kevin is JPC’s in-house tuner, and he uses an AEM Infinity engine management system with the company’s AQ1 data logger.
Behind the Three-Valve is an FB Performance 4R70W transmission with a PTC converter, with an 8.8 out back. Responsible for the 1.23 sixty-foot time is a team effort between Racecraft upper control arms and anti-roll bar, TRZ lower control arms, TeamZ lower control arm relocation brackets, and Menscer shocks.
So, we’re sure you read the title of Kevin’s write-up, but perhaps you wouldn’t believe this little Three-Valve coupe runs in the 7s. Well, it does, and it does so wearing Pony R wheels. Up front are 17x6 1/2s, while out back are 17x10 examples wrapped in 305/45 Mickey Thompson ET Street Rs.
Recently, he took the day off from JPC, for which Kevin thanks Justin Burcham, and he headed for Maryland International Raceway (MIR) to get in a couple runs. He ran an oh-so-close 8.03 at 174.26 mph, but then he was finally able to hit the magic number with a 7.97 at 174.17 mph.
Sevens on Pony R wheels, and with a Three-Valve…That’s doing work, son.
