How about making your Coyote Mustang powerful?

It has been painful. Even disastrous for car guys like us. Because we've been forced to stand in various motor shows in front of these three wise friends. 

One Mopar, One GM and One Ford guy who're all searching for the holy power grail. Who're all looking for instant power.Power increase at all speeds. Supercharged Power.

Until now we've not been fair and righteous. Instead we've nourished the GM and Mopar soul while we've let the Ford guy alone and astray.

But times are a changing and good things comes to he who waits. It seems like the last and lonely will now be fast and first.   
 Here's what I'm talking about. If your ride is, or will be, a Mustang or a F150... Listen up! Because we can offer the Coyote VMP/Magnuson Supercharger to make you feel at ease. Now.

If your're dead, stop reading.

We're in a tight spot and no matter what you're told by those in charge in your country, death seems to be the end. No witnesses around and no reliable scientific reports available to prove the opposite.

What it all comes down to.
 We just want you all to know that we're not dead yet. We're intending to survive the virus and so far garage quarantine has been a bullet proof shelter. We're working on supplying superchargers and turbos for victory every day.
When you're ready for thrill, we have the turbos and superchargers that you need. Here's some inspiration from an older Stockholm Open.

Stand by your Ride

Many years ago, a man arrived a bit too early to an appointment in his busted Ferrari Dino. The late afternoon sunrays made his worn yellow car look good. I was waiting too for god knows what when he arrived. 

The Old Ferrari had remains from rich combustion in the back, but the engine was running  fine.Even great. Its song resonated in the narrow French street and broke up the afternoon silence. I watched the car as it found the last roadside parking. As the ignition was switched off the sound echo out and the last fumes curled out from exhaust pipe

A man in his late 60s step out out from the Ferrari. He looked straight into the sundown while he searched and found a Cigar in his white coat. The Dino man walked five meters across the street to a bar, sat down, lit the cigar and ordered a Pastis.

Five minutes later a handsome cool woman, dressed in red arrived. They kissed. In comfort.

From that moment on I knew that ageing is not too bad and that I needed a fast yellow car. A car to wear, to tune and to get old in. Believe me, I'm working on it.

What follow is a 12 year super short story about vacation,  grand tourismo, supercharging.
The car was new. Our dreams were old. Pictured: Italian mountain roads under a cloudy sky.

Autobahn. Going fast while feeling safe. 273km/h (170mph) without even a Supercharger back in 2007. 
 Gotthard pass. 
Carina 40 years old...
...and me at being 41. Advice; If you're in need of a fast ride, blame it on a mid life crise or something similar. It works.
Next chapter in our Epic story. Buying LS3 cylinder heads while turing 50 in...
...Texas! Love it!
Why buy LS3 heads to our LS2 engine? Because of Magnuson, Magnuson Supercharger. The Heartbeat. That makes your heart beat.
Team work = Dream work. 
Carina at 48, strongly supporting Supercharged Speed
Installed...and ready for street performance, autobahn and gran tourismo travel.

Two days after install complete we hit the road. Going south fast. Feeling free while working on wearing down our yellow ride to a level that is appropriate for sundown in south 20 years from now.

Those who never give up! Time Attack Sweden, Robin Antonsson & EFR turbo...

We have written about garage quarantine; we have been whining about cancelled racing events and car meets. To balance all of that we now want to point out that TimeAttack, Sweden, managed to arrange a race event, in the middle of the Corona crisis.  And yes, it that follows epidemic directives (at least Swedish once...i.e. less than 50 people).
Obviously, only true hard-core race guys would attend, and our friend Robin Antonsson is one of them.  
 Not only has he managed to get the car ready to race, it’s better that ever before. I don't have all the technical details right now, but we'll get back with as much details that Robin want to reveal later on, but how about this for a teaser:
Robin and his team managed to squeeze out 1045rwhp from his EFR9180 equipped Supra. Look at the Power & Torque graph below.
Yes, it's the same EFR turbo that has supported his victories last couple of years...
We'll let the pictures below speak for themselves and wish Robin best of luck today, when it's RACE DAY!


Last but not least, I want to give a eulogy to Mikael Jarosisnski for his persistence that allow small scale safe racing in the middle of a pandemic! Impressive!


The Race Is On!
