JPC Racing is a big player in the Coyote scene. JPC claims to “Run the Coyote game,” and with recent performances in both sanctioned drag racing and with the company’s street kits, it’s hard to argue against that statement. Many of JPC’s racers are near the top of their respective classes, and JPC’s Justin Burcham has made huge strides in the X275/Street Outlaw world with his own 2011 Mustang GT.

JPC is also well-known for its 2011-2014 Mustang GT single turbo kits, and the natural progression was to add a 2015-2016 kit to the line-up. At the recent NMRA All-Ford World Finals at Beech Bend Raceway in Bowling Green, Kentucky, Justin had this 2015 Mustang GT at the event to test the new single turbo kit. It was a mad rush to get the car done in time for the event, since JPC also added a Watson Racing chromoly 6-point roll cage to the car for safety reasons, along with a Tremec Magnum XL six-speed transmission, and McLeod RXT clutch. The shifter is the stock Tremec Magnum unit with the Justin Burcham trademark pistol grip handle. Even the engine received special attention, knowing the power the kit would produce.

JPC’s 2015-2016 GT turbo kit uses a Precision single as the basis. There are different levels of power for the kit, and the base kit will come with a 7675 GT42 turbo. “The standard issue kit will have the 7675, while full-on baller status entails the 8685 single turbo,” says JPC’s Eric Holliday. The car here boasts the Precision 8685 single turbo, which is capable of powering a small town.

Knowing the kind of power the JPC single turbo kit could produce, the guys added a Rich Groh Racing-built bottom-end with stock heads and cams. Groh did add valve springs to the heads, though, because after all, he knew Justin Burcham would be driving the car. The test car also has JPC’s 2,400 horsepower fuel system in it, along with Fuel Injector Clinic injectors in it, and Eric tells us the car made right at 1,200-rwhp. “It should definitely make more, but we had to stop at some point and get the car to Bowling Green,” he says. As for the car’s tune, JPC’s Kevin MacDonald handled that using HP Tuners software, and some assistance from Palm Beach Dyno’s Ken Bjonnes.

Eric tells us the production kit will come with the turbo, all necessary piping and headers, an intercooler, two wastegates, a blow-off valve, a JMS FuelMAX fuel pump voltage booster, and all brackets and hardware. The single turbo kit will connect to the stock exhaust as well. As for injectors, JPC is going to offer the turbo kit as a “tuner kit,” if you will. That means whatever power level you want to be at, JPC can fix you up with the proper injectors.

As for when you can get a JPC turbo kit for your 2015-2016 GT, Eric says they have a couple revisions to make, but they hope to begin taking orders January of 2017.
