Our Project Wild E. Coyote receives a new, high-horse-capable short block, thanks to Rich Groh Racing Engines, Ford Racing, and a host of other companies who lent their expertise to help us build a street stormer.

We’ve tested Mickey Thompson’s 15-inch ET Street Radial and the newer ET 18-inch Street Radial II against one another on the street and at the track to see just how well they perform within their own given parameters.

Mickey Thompson has a new street tire aimed squarely at the high performance daily driver crowd. See what this tire is all about when we try them out on our project Wild E Coyote.

Wild E. Coyote gets a substantial upgrade in the drivetrain department, that is not only more durable, but should also be street and strip friendly. What does it take to install Tremec’s T-56 Magnum XL in a S197? We have all the details right here.

With over 590 hp making it to the rear tires we turned to Lakewood Industries to help give Wild E Coyote’s rear tires more bite, and improve our project Mustang’s overall chassis stiffness. Inside, we install a complete rear suspension update and even do a video on it!

There are literally thousands of parts and tricks we can use to make our cars go faster at the track. Weight savings is one of the oldest tricks in the book, but saving weight in the right area of the car can make surprising improvements in your ET’s. We test a set of GT500 18×9.5s versus Weld’s 18×4.5 RTS wheels.

Just as it takes exponentially more power to go increasingly faster at the drag strip and autocross it takes exponentially more energy to stop your steed the faster you go. This is why we turned to Baer Brakes to equip our 2011 Mustang with some serious stopping power, with the goal

Our Project Wild E Coyote has received numerous upgrades in the performance department lately. We decided that to help further differentiate it from the herd we’d upgrade its lighting, and appearance at all four corners, thanks to our friends at American Muscle.

Choosing the right wheel and tire combination that would achieve our goals of both setting off the look of our car as well as giving us a comfortable ride while maintaining optimum performance is no small task. With all of this in mind we turned to the folks at American Racing Wheels and Toyo Tires on our 2011 GT.
Whether you are looking for more horsepower or just better fuel economy, stock daily driver or full blown track warrior, you might not realize how much you can benefit from upgrading your Mustang’s Coil On Plug ignition system. We review the key players in the market and then test a set on our supercharged 2011 GT

AEM Electronics sent us one of their Failsafe Wideband and Boost gauges.This gauge incorporates both boost and wideband UEGO readings into one tidy package that still fits in a 2 1/16” gauge housing. It also has a data logging functions as well as several other features, and we installed one.

Installing short shifters in cars is something muscle car enthusiasts have been doing since the dawn of motoring time. We wanted to add some additional flare to Coyote’s relatively stock-looking interior while updating the problem-prone stock shifter assembly.

There aren’t many cars that competitively race at the drag strip, brake stop, and quarter mile. Our Wild E. Coyote 2011 GT though, is extremely capable. We raced at the NMRA Fontana race in True Street, Baer Brake Stop, and Hotchkis autocross. In the end, one award and one ‘almost’.

If you are a Mustang enthusiasts, surely by now you know the capabilities of the 2011 Mustang. Few shops have been able to squeeze out 500 RWHP naturally aspirated, most go straight for the power adders, and that is exactly our goal with our 2011 Mustang project with a Vortech Supercharger making 600 RWHP.

Our StangTV project car, the Wild E. Coyote 2011 Mustang GT, has some ambitious goals set out for it, one of those is the ability to eclipse 1G on the skidpad, while remaining entirely street drivable. Previously, the car has gone through some changes, but this is the first set of mods to address road handling.
Following the natural progression of modifications to our 2011 GT project “Wild E. Coyote”, we moved onto installing Airaid’s cold air intake system with SynthaMax oil-less air filter. The tune coupled with the Airaid intake would push us over the 400 RWHP mark with 401HP and 382 lb/ft on 91 octane fuel.

On this second project car update of Stang TV’s 2011 Mustang GT, we install a Ford Racing Adjustable Handling Pack suspension kit to get the Mustang ready for the road course. Also, we crack 400 RWHP on our DynoJet by installing a Airaid cold air intake and Brenspeed custom tune on a SCT SF3.

Project “Wild E. Coyote” is our newest Stang TV project car. It is a 2011 Mustang GT that will be getting a whole host of modifications, but first we started with a SCT SF3 hand held tuner. Want to see how we picked up 22 RWHP in 15 minutes? Read the article inside!
