To kick off Ford Racing's "Fifty for 5.0L" marketing campaign, the crew at Dearborn, Michigan based Ford Racing Performance Parts put a head turning "Gotta Have It Green" 2013 Mustang GT coupe together to showcase its late-model Mustang parts offering.
Powering the tricked out Mustang is FRPP's 9-psi, twin-screw 624 horsepower blower kit specially engineered for the 5.0L Coyote engine. The 624hp kit (Part #: M-6066-MGT624D), produces 536 lb-ft of torque at 4,700 revs), The unit is a highly efficient 2.3-liter twin-screw Whipple assembly with intercooler that can be had in either wrinkled black or polished finish. For customers that want to keep their Mustang powertrain warranty intact, Ford Racing also offers a 525 horsepower variant (M-6066-MGT525D) good for 525 hp at 6,400 rpm and 470 lb-ft of torque at 4,200 rpm. The base system also brings a 12-month/12,000-mile warranty if installed by a Ford or Lincoln dealer. In addition to more power, Ford Racing's 5.0L Ti-VCT supercharger kit is 50 state legal (it includes an EO number) and the supercharger calibration is honed to factory-civilized perfection.
To maximize the superchargers breathability, Ford Racing freed up the exhaust flow with a hybrid Ford Racing system made up of a Boss 302 quad exhaust set-up combined with a Sport Muffler kit that is 49 state legal for sound. Topping off the engine is a billet engine cap kit and Boss 302 blue coil pack covers.
Ford Racing's Green GT coupe is not just about "dollar off the dash" acceleration. It's also upgraded in the turning and braking departments. A Ford Racing adjustable handling pack (M-FR3-MGTAA) provides a practical 1-inch ride height drop, along with revised front and rear coil springs, dampers, and beefier sway bars. For rear suspension adjustability and track tuning, lower control arm relocation brackets were installed along with an adjustable panhard bar.
Stopping power is also upgraded with a Brembo 14-inch rotor front brake upgrade (M-2300-S). This brake upgrade kit utilizes four piston Brembo calipers from the 2007-2010 Shelby GT500 program and stainless steel Goodridge brake lines.
