Dyno Videos: Project Coyote 2014 GT VS. Grabber Boost 2006 GT

Grabber Boost 2006 GT vs 2014 GT Project Coyote

Back with another round of project cars, both Justin and Dave have recruited teams and are tangled up in some friendly competition. both are building a Grabber Blue GTs–Justin in his 2014 GT and Dave in his 2006 GT–to see who can build the better drag car. Here we have Stage 1 of both builds with stock dyno and 1/4 mile track times as well as comparable numbers after throwing on some essential bolt-on mods. While you can probably assume who’s got more power under the hood, you might be surprised at the results.

Head over to AmericanMuscle.com and Check out the entire 2014 Mustang GT Project Coyote build!

Or, if the 2006 GT, Project Grabber Boost is more your style, you can see that entire build as well.

Project Coyote – 2014 Mustang GT

Justin and his team have a distinct advantage out of the gate–they’re building the fastest production Mustang GT Ford ever built. Clearly, the 2014 GT is making more power from its 5.0L 4-valve motor than Dave could possibly get out of a stock 2006 3-valve GT. After posting a solid 12.99 @ 110.68MPH in the quarter mile with a bone-stock 2014 GT, they followed it up with a 12.59 second run. Thanks to some bolt-ons and a custom Bama tune, they also added a solid chunk of horsepower:

Rear Wheel Horsepower, Stock: 361HP, 344TQ

Stage 1: 384HP, 373TQ

Quarter Mile Tack Times: Stock - 12.99

Stage 1: 12.59

Project Grabber Boost – 2006 Mustang GT

Dave and his crew definitely have some catching up to do. After their stock GT put down a still impressive 278RWHP & 291TQ before any mods, they were nearly 100RWHP behind Justin’s stock 2014 GT. With a power adder in their minds and a burning desire to run down Justin and his 2014, the team paid extra close attention when hand picking their stage 1 bolt-on mods.

With a pile of new parts, the team dropped a full half second off their stock track time, going from a 14.05 with the factory parts to 13.5 after stage 1 bolt-ons. The stoutly 2006 GT also increased it’s rear wheel power to 292HP and 307TQ.

Barrett-Jackson 2014: First production 2015 Ford Mustang earns $300k for JDRF [w/video]

Filed under: , , ,

2015 Ford Mustang

We've almost become immune to the huge dollar amounts that collectible cars earn for charity at Barrett-Jackson. To wit, $300,000 for the first production 2015 Ford Mustang initially didn't seem like very much money. In reality, though, it's probably about 10 times the actual asking price for the car, and we're pleased to report that 100 percent of the proceeds will go to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.

According to Ford, the car's winning bidder will get to "choose a fastback with manual or automatic transmission, and any interior, exterior and stripe color combination offered by Ford on the all-new Mustang." Power will come from a slightly revised version of the well-known 5.0-liter V8 engine that will produce "more than 420hp and 396 pound-feet of torque."

We snapped live images of the 2015 Mustang prototype that Ford had on display here at Barrett-Jackson, and you can check them out above. The official auction description, along with a video of the auction as it happened live, is below.
