We love getting out to performance shops for projects as you never know what you might run into. While documenting an installation at Steeda Autosports, ace technician Matt Bouyea told us about a customer build on a 2016 Mustang California Special that really impressed. Matt installed a Whipple 2.9-liter supercharger and James Gordon of Tuning by James tuned it up.
Of course, at the time, the Whipple supercharger system (PN 439-WK-2620TB; $7,495.95) was available for the latest Mustang GTs is available with its own CARB-approved calibration for manual-transmission cars. With this customer‘s car being an automatic, Matt installed the tuner kit, including the optional yellow finish on the blower, and turned the hardware over to James to generate a custom calibration.
