    OK,

    *Disclaimer, these are personal projects not ProCharger related, but since its Gen2 and Gen3 Coyote related figured I would share. So a few of you know that I sold the 2018 a while back, it was a wonderful daily driver, but it was time for a new project (and it made room for some other goodies)

    LINK TO OLD CAR: https://bit.ly/2QZoYRg

    IMG_0210.jpg

    THE NEW PROJECT: Operation how fast can a junkyard Gen2 go with a P-1X

    After tuning multiple 900+ rwhp Gen2 and Gen3 cars with P-1X's on E85...I figured it was time for me to do one myself and put it in a light car to play with. So I picked up the 1987 Mustang Coupe and a wrecked 2016 Mustang GT to snag all of the drive train out of it. (it was rolled)

    Now I haven't had a lot of time to work on this, since ProCharger has military contracts and other things, we are still open during the 'Rona...however I have still gotten a chance to sneak off to my shop this week at night, and finally get the motor and trans into this thing.

    Step 1 Plan:
    - Stock engine, Stock Trans, Stock Converter
    - See how fast it will go N/A

    Step 2 Plan:
    - Add a 2015+ ProCharger STG2 bracket and P-1X
    - See how fast it will go with the stock converter

    Step 3 Plan:
    - Once that's exhausted, time to add a converter
    - Run it till it either sets a record or kicks rods

    Current Power Mods:
    - 2018 intake manifold
    - American Racing Headers

    Supporting Mods:
    - Aeromotive Fuel Pump
    - DW 95lb Injectors
    - nGauge and me tuning it with HPT

    So I back burnered my LS swap in my C10 Square body, to finally get this all rolling and done. For more updates on this, I will admit I suck at posting to forums. However, you are more than welcome to follow my social media pages.

    Skip the N/A and go straight to the boosties! Trans will prob need some love before the engine self ventilates.

    Trans may live longer than you think being 1000lbs lighter.

    Doing all the NA stuff, gives me a chance to really dial in the suspension. Before adding all the drama of the extra HP. (at least thats the plan)

    If it needs love, it will go to Brett :)

    Its got 28's, and it will get 4:10s. Which will work for NA.... then once its Boosted will do a 2nd gear leave.

    The motor almost went into my black Squarebody behind it. But the coupe was the "easier" option lol. Thank you sir!

    I was thinking about putting a gen3/10r80 in my coupe. But not sure how much quicker it would be over current setup. IMG_20200406_124927.jpg

    Have your bosses at PC'r gift your an F1a for your project. All I care about is the F1A94 numbers on a Gen2, no one seems to have them but people keep saying it's too much blower even when I know it's not. :) I'm still on the fence between the 3.6L/4.2 Kenne Bell and the D1x/F1a94. Help me obi..

    Although it sounds cool to have an F1A, I think a P1x turned up on a 2700LB fox is plenty fast, like mid 8s fast.
