As we gear up for the 2015 Mustang’s release, we figured what better way to say goodbye to the S197 platform than building a one last project car! If you have followed any of our previous project cars you have noticed that they have all been standard transmissions. This time around we are starting with a 2014 Ford Mustang GT with an automatic transmission. This Oxford White Premium Package GT features the super popular 5.0L Coyote Engine and Ford’s newly redesigned 6 speed automatic transmission.

While the 5.0L Coyote motor is a potent power plant from the factory, there is still plenty of room for improvement. We will be throwing a whole host of performance mods at this 2014 Mustang. This S197 didn’t come fully loaded so it doesn’t have the Brembo Brake package. We will be addressing the brakes to help slow down the new found performance modifications. When compared to Project High Impact’s suspension, this Mustang build is going to need the book thrown at it when it comes to improving handling. Lastly we will be transforming the exterior with the help of some Roush Performance Parts.

2014 Mustang GT Project (S197 Build) - 2014 Mustang Roush Build

This Mustang project car will feature performance parts from companies such as Roush Performance, Ford Racing Performance Parts and many more. As this project evolves into one mean street machine, we will continually be adding video and articles detailing the build. Be sure to check back often, watch the videos below and feel free to leave us comments on what you think we should do next with our new project car!

Stage 1: Roush Front End Conversion

Stage 1 of our 2014 Mustang project is to completely transform the front end of our latest project car. We decided to drop the boring front end and replace it with Roush RS3 inspired look. This front end transformation included a Roush front chin splitter, high flow upper grille, lower grille delete, fog light kit & hood scoop install.

In typical LatemodelRestoration.com fashion we took the time to show you how you can install all of these Roush Performance Parts on your own 2013-14 Mustang! Follow along in the videos below to watch us completely transform the front end of our project car.

Stage 2: Suspension & Brakes

At the end of Stage 1, we had completely transformed the front end of our 2014 Mustang GT with a Roush RS3 Conversion. In Stage 2 we decided to finish off the Roush conversion with a rear valance kit and exhaust. We finalized Stage 2 by giving our project Mustang an aggressive stance and improved handling with a Ford Racing Performance handling pack. We also added a set of 20” Roush Hyper Black Wheels to give the car a true Roush Performance look!

The Roush Rear Valance is designed to clear the Roush Square Tip Axle Back Exhaust. This rear diffuser and exhaust kit further adds to the aggressive exterior styling. The styling isn’t the only thing that is aggressive with this kit. The exhaust tone sounds amazing with its deep American muscle car tone with minimal interior exhaust drone.

The Ford Racing pre-assembled performance handling pack made for a super simple suspension upgrade. The front struts, lowering springs and strut mounts come pre-assembled in these kits. This drastically cuts down on installation time and reduces the risk of injury from compressing springs on your own. The aggressive stance and improved handling makes this a must own suspension mod for any S197 Mustang. Watch our full installation video below to see how you can drastically improve your handling with one of these Ford Racing Suspension Kits.

Stay tuned because Stage 3 is just around the corner and we are looking to make some serious horsepower gains in the next part of this build. You don’t want to miss out on the next stage of our project 2014 Mustang GT.

Stage 3: Roush Supercharge & Interior Upgrades

In the first two stages of this 2014 Mustang GT project we made huge improvements to the exterior, suspension, and brakes. The final stage of this project consisted of two simple steps. Step one – do a little interior dress up. The interior needed a little improvement to match the new Roush Exterior. The second step and the most important one – Make More Power!

We accomplished the interior upgrades with the help of the Roush Illuminated Door Sills and a set of Roush Floor Mats. The illuminated door sills made for an awesome upgrade that really stands out at night time! The floor mats completed the Roush RS3 conversion and gave the interior a true Roush Performance Mustang look and feel.

We decided to completely skip the whole “bolt-on” parts upgrades and jumped straight into making big power with a Roush Supercharger Kit. The Roush Mustang Supercharger Kits include everything you need to bolt on an extra 150+ HP right from the comforts of your very own garage! These kits include the super-efficient and very powerful 2.3L TVS blowers to help make impressive horsepower numbers.

In the case of our automatic 2014 Mustang GT, it put down an impressive 519 HP and 493 ft. lbs of torque with a VMP custom tune on their 224xLC Dynojet mobile dyno. Be sure to check out the video below!

Watch us wrap-up the final stage of our 2014 Mustang GT. With the Roush exterior conversion complete, the suspension in place and braking improved, we turned our focus on performance. We know this is what everyone has been waiting on! Sticking with the whole Roush RS3 theme we decided to give horsepower a serious boost with a Roush TVS blower.

We opted for the Roush Stage 2 Supercharger kit for our 2014 Mustang. This kit is designed for 2011-14 Mustangs with the 5.0L Coyote engines. The heart and soul of these kits is the Roush 2.3L TVS blower. It makes amazing power due to its superior design and efficiencies. The TVS blower provides you with great drivability and extreme performance.

The final upgrades were a set of Roush floor mats and Roush door sill plates. The lighted door sill plates will add a very unique and custom look to any S197 Mustang. It may be one of the best interior upgrades for these Stangs.

When we started out, we wanted to take this 2014 Mustang GT automatic and make it something a lot better. And we did that by essentially making this car a Roush Stage 3.

Just to recap, we did the Roush lower grill delete, the front lower chin spoiler, the front upper grill, and the hood scoop along with the foglight kit. After we buttoned up the front end, we went ahead and moved on to the suspension, brakes, wheels, and tires.

We lowered the right height and improved the handling with the Ford Racing Handling Pack featuring the nonadjustable struts and shocks and the Ford Racing P Springs. And because we were adding in more horsepower, we wanted to make sure we could slow it down. We bolted on a set of the M-2300-S 14-inch Brembo Brakes.

To finish it all up, we mounted up a 20-inch Roush wheel and tire kit which completely changed the looks of this car.

Then we moved on to the side splitters. To finish out the exterior modifications, we stuck on a set of the Roush fender emblems. To improve the rear of the car, we installed a Roush three-piece rear spoiler, the rear lower valance, and awesome-sounding Roush axle back exhaust kit, and the rear deck lid badge.

Interior mods were pretty minimal consisting of a set of Roush floor mats and a set of Roush lighted sill plates. My favorite part of this whole conversion was the Stage 2 Roush supercharger kit which is going to give us approximately an additional 200 rear wheel horse power.

Once we were done with that, we snapped on a 70's OE quality Roush coil covers. And that concludes another Mustang transformation.

Now you can do the same thing to your car with parts right off of our website. We did detailed installation videos on all the exterior appearance mods, the suspension, and the brakes. You can view those on our YouTube channel or right here at LatemodelRestoration.com.
