As you know, SVTP has a robust stable of project cars ranging from our feisty Fiesta ST, Project Smallz to our corner-carving EcoBoost Mustang, Project Samhain. However, the headliner in the bunch is our bright-yellow 2015 Mustang GT, Project Triple Threat, which we picked up at Gaudin Ford in Las Vegas, Nevada, and started modding from the jump.

The Whipple Superchargers 2015-2016 Mustang GT SC System has a base price of $7,295, and includes everything you need to supercharger your new Mustang GT. If you want to option it up like Triple Threat’s system you can add the 132mm elliptical throttle body for $600, the dual 11-inch heat exchanger fans for $400, and the gloss yellow finish for $600. Other options include a carbon-fiber inlet tube ($300) and jackshaft cover ($190). Also, a calibration is provided, but you have to ship your TriCor PCM out to Whipple for the flash. If you would prefer to have a handheld flash tuner, adding one will tack on $200 to your invoice.

We started with the basics, like Redline Tuning hood lifts and an MGW license plate frame, but this car is being tweaked for the quarter mile. So, shortly after adding some easy bolt-ons on the Gaudin Ford lot, we loaded Triple Threat in the SVTP trailer and made a beeline for Whipple Superchargers in Fresno, California.

There we snapped photos and shot video as the Whipple team installed one of the first 2.9-liter supercharger systems for the 2015 Mustang GT. Of course, this wasn’t just any supercharger. No, it was a literal match made in horsepower heaven. This Whipple kit, and its companion lower intake manifold were both coated in yellow to match our project’s hot hue. You can watch the installation of the Whipple kit right here…
