When it comes to research and development, there is no truer test of a component’s performance than putting it on the very vehicle it’s intended for and running it on the street or track. Moroso knows this and makes use of many vehicles for testing purposes, including their 2008 GTM (M for Moroso) S197 Mustang. Check it out in the video above.
The Moroso GTM Mustang provides the optimal R&D platform for all of the company’s early fifth-generation Mustang components. With a Roushcharger supercharged 4.6L engine, Tremec 3650 five-speed transmission, and Roush and Competition Engineering-enhanced rear suspension, the GTM is a potent street and strip car that’s perfect for testing compatible components.
While you may only be familiar with a few Moroso components, the company offers all kinds of goodies for the modern Mustang. On the GTM, you’ll find tested and proven components like a coolant tank, intercooler tank for the Roush supercharger, power steering tank, 3-valve billet rail valve covers, fuse box cover, brake reservoir cover and oil pan all from Moroso. The GTM Mustang is also equipped with Moroso’s stainless axle-back exhaust system.
In the video above, you can see just how some of the Moroso components are tested on the Mustang. While Moroso does plenty of dyno and in-house testing on their products, putting their components to use on the street and track is the perfect way to see how each component will perform on customer cars. Check out some of the great Moroso components on the GTM Mustang and one of the company’s drag passes with the test car in the videos below.
