Video | SVTP Tours Livernois Motorsports

It's no secret that I've long been a fan of Livernois Motorsports in Deaborn, MI. Dan and the guys run one of the most complete and capable shops in the domestic performance industry. As you'll see in the video below, with the exception of body work Livernois can pretty much do it all. Not only do they turn wrenches and tune, they also develop and manufacture some unique high performance parts. If you're looking for some 3V Cam Phaser Lock-Outs[/URL] or a Coyote Cam Timing Control Kit, Livernois is the place to go.

So when the Livernois crew invited me over to give you guys an inside look at their facilities I couldn't RSVP quick enough. I mean, where else are you going to find a shop with 4 Chassis Dynos and that also develops its own tuning software? In fact, we happened to catch Dan testing out a new tuning feature for Coyote engines that will likely end up being more controversial than the ubiquitous 'Ghost-Cam' Tune. A few weeks back we gave you a look behind the scenes at how Livernois machines and assembles their ported cylinder heads, but this time we're going to share a much more complete view of the entire operation.

20 Years Later - This 2000 SVT Cobra R is Still Highly Desirable - And Available

I may be telling my age a bit here. but the first Mustang I really remember lusting for was the 2000 SVT Cobra R.

Friends and family just didn't understand. How could a Mustang with no radio or air conditioning cost over $50,000? We all now know the answer to that.
No Replacement for Displacement | Is it Time for a 5.7L Tall-Deck Coyote???

Let’s face it, the 5.0 Coyote V8 has introduced an era of Ford Pony Car dominance the likes of which we’ve never really seen. The Terminator absolutely crushed the competition in its day, but that was a time where Mustang was really the only active pony car offering. Coyote has had challengers from both Mopar and Chevy during its three (so far) generation run. In the GT class the competition doesn’t really touch if, and when you start adding mods the dominance is even more apparent... Click Here to Continue Reading...
Coyote Swapped 03 Cobra Update

Been away from the forums for a while, figured I would post a brief update. Last I was on here my car was a TVS 4R70W car. In the fall of 2015 I began transitioning the car over to more of a track car. My goals were 7 second quarter mile times, 4 second 1/8 mile times, 180+ mph, and 1.1X 60' times, all while still being able to drive the car on the street. Anyone that knows me knows that I am extremely OCD, especially when it comes to working on cars. I wanted the car to be able to drive the car to the local car cruise in, win a car show, and bust off a 7 second pass. So I set out to build the car I dreamed of... Click Here to Continue Reading...
