The first mod many of us do to our cars is a cold air intake. We got with JLT and Brenspeed to install a JLT intake kit for a 2013 along with a custom tune from Brenspeed using SCT’s new iTSX. We then strapped the ’13 on our Dynojet and took it to Irwindale for some eighth mile track testing.

Maximizing the NOVI 2200 supercharger output will help achieve that goal as the JPC Racing ’11 Mustang shop car has already run 9.34 at 150 mph and cranks out 843 rwhp at 15 psi of boost and 6,600 rpm—any higher resulted in belt slippage. Now with the 8-rib upgrade, the team from JPC went back to the dyno…
When MSD let the world know that they were rolling out a new electronic fuel injection system, we couldn’t wait to get our hot little hands on one. We had the perfect car to test out the system and see if we could bring the car into the Atomic age. Check out our install and testing of MSD’s Atomic EFI kit here.
1,000 horsepower, 91 octane, and reliability are all words that you normally don’t hear together. But that is exactly what we are going for with our 427 cubic inch small block Ford destined for our ’65 Mustang we call “Biting the Bullitt”. Follow along through the entire engine build and engine dyno sessio
Take a look at what it takes to do some basic maintenance and part replacements for a 40+ year old classic, turning it into a project car you can drive back and forth to the shop. These basic steps will keep your project car running strong and durable until you’re ready to swap the powertrain.
