7-Second Turbo Coyote Mustang

January 27th, 2017

Nothing sounds quite like a Mustang GT. It has a very distinctive throaty rumble that has been music to the ears of car enthusiasts for more than 50-years. The introduction of the all-aluminum, modular Coyote 5.0-liter V8 engine takes this sweet pony-car sound and makes it just a little bit sweeter by reducing overall weight and increasing performance. It is based on the same overhead cam engine block platform as the 4.6-liter but with extra reinforcement. This makes the smaller Coyote engine more durable to withstand the upgrades that will be necessary to produce horsepower levels comparable to that of larger Chevy (Camaro) and Dodge (Hellcat) engines. Four valves per cylinder and a specially designed intake manifold help to improve airflow and make this coyote howl.

The Coyote Mustang in this video certainly has no problem making horsepower. That is pretty evident by the consistent low to mid 7-second passes at around 185 mph. Of course, DMC Racing and JPC Racing had a big role in setting this fast moving steed up with everything it needs to blast through the 1320. That includes an extensive turbocharger setup with an ice-water bath.

This is some great heads-up drag racing action.
