The big HP 5.0 Showdown

The NMRA season opening event at Bradenton Motorsports Park (Bradenton, Florida) will be the playground for the world’s most powerful 2011-2012 Mustangs. If the stars align then some of the wildest Coyote-powered Mustangs of the latest genre will be aiming down the Bradenton race track this weekend. In the Mustang world the standard for performance is almost always set on the drag-strip and we are sure both ends of the drag racing records will have changed by this time next week. The record for a Coyote-powered Mustang on the drag strip stands at an impressive 8.89, a deed that was accomplished by the Pennsylvania-based Evolution Performance utilizing a ProCharger F1C. The mph record is currently sitting at a lofty 152 mph as held by JPC Racing and its Paxton-pumped machine.

By our count there will be three Coyote 5.0L Mustangs in attendance making over 1,000 rwhp and they will be backed up by eight more cars in the 900 rwhp range. Some car owners have committed to running True Street/Spring Break Shootout while others are entering the index classes and some are just going to show up and run whatever category just to have fun. The Spring Break Shootout should have the wildest bunch of Coyote 5.0L Mustangs on a single piece of property and each are looking at the 1,320 drag strip for glory.



Here is a sneak peak of the players thrashing for this week’s season opener.

Evolution Performance

Over 1,000 rwhp and currently holds the quickest time with an 8.89 thanks to a built engine from L&M Racing, ProCharger centrifugal blower, and a little hit of nitrous. The team refers to the car as Kona and it was the first 11-second and 8-second 2011-2012 Mustang. In fact, it is the sole owner of an 8-second time slip for this generation of Mustang. Jon Lund is credited with tuning the car.



JPC Racing

Last week the car unleashed 1,032 rwhp from its Paxton NOVI 2200 supercharger. The Mustang has run as quick as 9.34 at 152 mph but that was with 200 less rwhp. The engine is from RGR but still boasts stock cams and intake manifold and JPC added a Tremec TK600 for extreme drag racing action.



Terry “Beefcake” Reeves/www.TeamBeefcakeRacing.com

A switch to E85 fuel last week netted him major gains as the 2011 Mustang GT produced 960 rwhp—through a 6R80 transmission that Circle D rebuilt with Exedy clutches. The BES-built short-block has JPC/RGR heads and cams and Boss intake. A Vortech JT-trim supercharger system is responsible for the boost.



Sean Kelley

The 2012 Mustang GT made 925 rwhp through the factory slush-box with 15 psi of Paxton boost and a small hit of nitrous through a single nozzle in the throttle body. Kelley is armed with a new Induction Solutions fogger system for more nitrous on top of his built-302 engine. Estimated rwhp is over 1,000 and Kelley is driving the car from Virginia to Florida in order to compete in the Spring Break Shootout class.



Joe Decaria

He is known on the Internet as Coffeeman and the Floridian turned to Power By The Hour and Ken Bjonnes/Lund Racing for a 9-second Coyote ride. The car features a Ford Racing Aluminator (9.5:1) short-block, Boss intake, and ProCharger F1A with a custom air-to-water intercooler. On the chassis dyno it made 829 rwhp and ran 9.70s at 140 with the smaller D1SC—expect this car to be over 900 with the larger ProCharger and new intercooler system.



Peter Del Pino

One of our fondest memories of Del Pino is when he rented a Hertz Mustang and added…well those are the old days. These new days are filled with working on his 2011 Mustang GT that made 960 rwhp with a ProCharger F1A. He converted the car over to a 4R70W automatic transmission after toasting the stock 6R80 last year. Kevin MacDonald is credited with tuning the factory ECU.



Chris Cruz

He was just awarded top honors in the 5.0 Mustang & Super Ford Magazine King of the Street (KOTS) competition in the latest issue of the magazine. The white 2011 California Special features a L&M-built engine and a Ford Racing/Whipple 2.9L that gets chemical enhancement from a shot of nitrous. The Evolution boys built the car and it dropped 901 rwhp on the sauce. On track the car rolls on Nitto NT05s, which hamper performance somewhat but the car still rolled out a killer 9.79 at 149 mph at the NMRA World Finals.



Blow-By Racing

The Florida-based performance shop is no stranger to big horsepower so when they started talking about adding a Hellion turbo system to the shop 5.0L Mustang we knew they were going to make some waves in the industry. The white Mustang GT unleashed 953 rwhp from the fortified 5.0L powerplant. The car was also a player in the 5.0 Mustang & Super Ford Magazine KOTS challenge last year. A manual transmission with Exedy clutch backs this turbocharged beast.



Lund Racing/Ken Bjonnes

A few names recently teamed up—Ken Bjonnes, Jake Long, and Jon Lund—to bring a new twin turbo kit to the marketplace. And what better way is there to tout the kit’s performances than on track? Bjonnes has been the driving force in the Lund Racing twin turbo kit (Twin Turbo 5.0) and it has some unique features like an air-to-water intercooler and big power potential. To that end, Bjonnes contracted Power By The Hour to add a new L&M prototype 5.0L engine and the goal is to crank out over 900 rwhp through a 6R80 automatic transmission. Bjonnes and Power By The Hour are thrashing to get the car completed in time for this weekend’s festivities. Bjonnes says they are on target to be at the track by Friday.



Strictly Performance

Richard Lelsz and his Strictly Performance shop are credited with the first 9-second run in Coyote 5.0L history. Since that time the white Mustang GT has been stepped up quite a bit in power as he is aiming for the 8s. A ProCharger F1A intercooled kit compliments the NOS direct-port nitrous system that Lelsz plumbed into the intake manifold. Last year the car made 996 rwhp but the block let loose. Darton sleeves and some other tricks are being employed to help longevity and enable Lelsz to run right through the 1,000 rwhp barrier. Time is getting slim for Lelsz and he is says Bradenton is a 50/50 shot at best right now but we are holding out hope he gets the engine back in the car in time.

So you know Jon Lund TT 5.0 put over 900whp on only 17psi a few hours ago.
