Bullitt Mustang Gets Big-Cube 4V .
When it comes to subtle styling the Bullitt Mustangs have to take the award for being the most instantly recognizable. Other than the unique Dark Highland Green paint (among select other choices) the Bullitts may be best known for the parts that were omitted in order to achieve a clean, yet menacing, look; items such as a spoiler and fog lights. The two modern interpretations (2001 and 2008) of the 1968 orginal also came with a modest power bump over their GT counterparts.
One supercharger to rule them all.
It’s a war that’s been raging for years, the battle of the Mustang blowers. Kenne Bell and Whipple are the traditional combatants on the positive displacement side, but VMP has certainly been making waves with their 2.3L TVS units. It just so happens that SVTP Member 302project posted a video of a 4.0 Whipple powered Boss 302 Vs 4.7 Kenne Bell’s GT500 Vs a 2.3 VMP TVS equipped GT500.

Pics/Articles are great and all, but at some point it becomes a lot more rewarding to stop reading and start listening.

In this instance we broke out the video camera and got conversational with some of the engineers and marketing personnel at your favorite performance manufacturers.
Tighten Your Belt
Maintain big boost without belt slip thanks to VMP’s billet GT500 tensioner
By Steve Turner
Owners of 2007-2014 Shelby GT500s know how easy it is to build power with these cars. Just add a smaller blower pulley, open up the inlet, add a custom calibration and the gains are huge. As you start to push harder with smaller pulleys, more rpm, and such the factory belt tensioner is put in a bad spot.

Over the years we have seen VMP expand its offerings from performance tuning to supercharger enhancements to complete supercharger kits. As such it is only natural that the company would tweak its brand to better communicate its wide range of offerings. Recently the company launched a new website and a new name—VMP Performance.
