Our 2011 Mustang GT served as a testbed of many new products & saw its fair share of track time. It proved the real potential of the new 5.0L Coyote motors with amazing drag strip times, and it also showed off the handling capabilities of the S197 Mustang on the road course!

All good things come to an end. Such is the case with our 2011 Race Red project car. As Scott's personal car, this Mustang served us for almost two years as a testbed for products, as well as a fixture at events and shows.

The 2011 Brembo-packaged, premium GT was transformed over its term as a project car from stocker to certified screamer. With its full list of bolt-on modifications and a shot of the giggle gas, it was a runner. This 2011 Mustang project car turned heads everywhere and never failed to impress the crowds.

"Final Thoughts" from Scott about his 2011 Mustang:

All good things come to an end. Such is the case with our 2011 Race Red project car. As my personal car, this Mustang served us for almost 2 years as a testbed for products, as well as a fixture at events and shows.

As with many of our customers’ cars, modifications started off tame. We started the build with a set of M-5300-P Ford Racing Lowering springs, and an SCT SF3 tuner with a custom tune. We then added some styling by means of a GT500-style rear spoiler, California Special front valance, and Roush 7-bar billet grille. In time, more horsepower was injected by means of a full Stainless Works header-back exhaust system, Boss intake manifold, Steeda cold air intake kit, and a Nitrous Outlet wet nitrous kit.

On the dyno, the car made over 550 horsepower at the wheels, and almost 600 pounds-feet of torque with a 150 horsepower shot.

To say we had fun with the car would be an understatement. We had a blast on the street, at the shows, and the track with our 2011 Mustang GT.

The red rocket served us well at the drag strip, running an 11.51 at 117 without the use of spray when equipped with Race Star wheels with Mickey Thompson slicks. On a set of 19” Hoosier R6 radials, the car lapped Texas World Speedway’s 2.9-mile road course in 1 minute, 57 seconds (piloted by yours truly).

We traveled cross-country on two occasions. One trip shuttled the Race Red Mustang GT to Myrtle Beach South Carolina for Mustang Week 2011. The second road trip came courtesy of the beautiful 3000-mile drive to Sturgis, South Dakota for the Sturgis Mustang Rally.

Our last foray with the 2011 GT landed us at the Mecum auto auction in Houston, Texas. It was there that the car crossed the block (for a bargain) and landed in the hands of its new owner. We can only hope that the new owner will have as much fun in the car as we did.

In the end, the red 5.0L Coyote GT was a testament to what can be accomplished with today’s Coyote-powered 5.0 Mustang GT. The car responded well to every mod we performed. Our selection of enhancements resulted in a car that looked and performed better than much more expensive and exotic cars. We will miss it, and look forward to putting forth the effort to our newest addition, Project High Impact.
