SVTP recently had the opportunity to drive the latest Ford F-150, which features a lot of upgrades over the previous model, including an aluminum body and a 2.7-liter EcoBoost engine.

Installing and testing MGW’s new shifter for the Shelby GT350
The anticipation levels have been rather high for some time. After months of design and development, anyone looking for precision and refinement in a shifter can now cross it off the bucket list. You are no longer beholden to the Camaro-inspired factory compromise that sits atop the TR-3160 six-speed manual transmission in every Shelby GT350 Mustang.

You had to know that we weren’t going to stop with just one 2015 Mustang project car.

If you haven’t been following the progress of the SVTP GT, it’s 5.0 is topped by a 2.3-liter TVS-based Magnuson supercharger system that—with the help of a custom cold-air intake—produced 576 rear-wheel horsepower with a measly 7 pounds of boost. Since it makes plenty of power, we shifted our focus to improving its handling. That’s where our good friends at Ford Racing Performance Parts came in.
