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.

With only a few styling upgrades, the owner of this Steedafied 2016 Mustang wanted to keep it a sleeper, right down to the factory wheels. Most people won’t expect the Whipplecharged performance lurking under the Triple Yellow hood.

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.
