Best Coyote Mustang Performance ModsLast Updated August 12, 2019
There’s no doubt that the 5.0L 4-Valve Coyote Engine is one of the best motors to come out of Ford Motor Company’s headquarters in Detroit, Michigan. Since its inception in 2011, the Coyote engine has produced north of 400 horsepower at the crankshaft for the Mustang GT’s. Towering another 100+ horsepower over the outgoing 2010 4.6L 3-Valve, the Coyote is clearly impressive in stock form. But what will happen if you throw the right modifications at it?
If you’re looking to boost the power output on your Mustang, one of the first mods usually is a Cold Air Intake. The idea is to free up air-flow coming into the engine which allows your Mustang to breathe easier equating to more power. Factory airboxes are typically restrictive and don’t allow sufficient airflow to the throttle body and intake manifold in the upper RPM range. Adding a cold air intake will increase that air-flow when the engine needs it most allowing for more power!
Knowing the basic differences between a supercharger and a turbo will allow you to dig deeper into which may better fit your lifestyle. If you’re looking for an all-out race car, then a turbo may be a better option for you when it comes to maximum power output. If you want streetable, instant power, then a twin screw supercharger would be the choice for you. Regardless of what you choose for your Mustang, CJ Pony Parts has an extensive inventory of Mustang superchargers and aftermarket Focus ST turbochargers that will surely bring the most out of your Ford!
2011 was a monumental year for Ford, Ford Racing and the S197 platform. This year in particular introduced an all-new 5.0L “Coyote” V8 with twin-independent variable camshaft timing pumping out a nasty 412 horsepower and 390 lb/ft of torque, which was then bumped to 420 for 2013-2014 GTs. Compared to the 2010’s outgoing 320 horsepower, this was quite a jump in power for nearly the same price. After picking up your new pony, the next step is always a good sounding exhaust system!
