5.0 Mustang & Super Fords

Ford Motor Company
Building a crowd anytime the hood went up, the Paul's High Performance Three-Valve was wearing a full suite of Ford Racing hardware: cams, CNC-ported heads, a throttle body, an airbox, and this prototype, high-rpm intake. All aimed at 7,000 rpm, the combination cost just a couple of ticks of power below 2,500 rpm, but screams in the midrange and top end. Still a development piece, expect to see this affordable, trick new intake from Ford Racing later this year.

2010 Cobra Jet
In addition and for the second year running, outgoing Ford Racing main man Brian Wolfe unveiled a Cobra Jet Mustang at SEMA. Actually there are two Cobra Jets for 2010: the standard issue, with the familiar iron 5.4 block, and a Super Cobra Jet with an aluminum block. Both engines boast higher lift cams and increased compression, but the SCJ also gains a 4.0-liter Whipple supercharger. Performance is gauged by the standard 8.5-second-legal rollcage; the cars are legal for NHRA Super Stock A/B and A/B Automatic. Other improvements are an aluminum tank and fan-cooling for the heat exchanger. Best of all, the parts are available from Ford Racing to roll your own CJ-or if you're like Brian, "I got to do a big flaming burnout in it!" He's still crazy for it.

Leading the trend of touchscreen-controlled standalone EFI systems, Holley (www.holley.com) introduced its new line of fuel-injection controls, including the Avenger, HP, and Dominator EFI systems. The names sure sound familiar, but the capabilities of these systems is far beyond those of their carbureted namesakes. From self-tuning and touchscreen control to boost control and progressive nitrous control, these systems are powerful. They even offer an optional Holley water-methanol injection system with controls integrated in the HP and Dominator systems.

Our tech editor has already put a set on a car, but it was an official coming out party at SEMA for Nitto's (www.nittotire.com) new NT05R drag radial. Unlike the 555R, which lives a long life on the street, the soft and sticky NT055R is a stickier, faster-wearing tire for maximum radial traction at the strip.

Paul's High Performance
Always good for the latest trick stuff, Paul and Rhonda Svinicki of Paul's High Performance (www.paulshp.com) had their spanking-new 2010 drag car in the Ford booth. Augmented with a spooled 9-inch Moser rearend, Cobra Jet, and Paul's High Performance control arms, CJ shocks, BMR K-member, AC-delete, and TRZ cage, the Grabber Blue GT's real surprise was under the towering hood. Look for this car at NMRA and other events this summer.

Showing off a race supercharger kit for Three-Valve Mustangs, ProCharger's (www.procharger.com) aggressive Mustang 3V Reverse Cog Kit features a cog-belt drive, a race bypass valve, an 800hp-capable intercooler, and the ability to run F-1 through F-2 superchargers. The company also showed off a more streetable version of the F-series blowers, the F-1D self-contained supercharger. It is said to "provide better boost response in high-horsepower street applications than the more competition-oriented F-1C and F-1R models." Quiet, helical P-1SC and D-1SC offerings are also part of the new ProCharger arsenal.

Trick Flow (www.trickflow.com) made a splash last year with its Twisted Wedge heads for the Two-Valve 4.6. It followed up this year with a CNC-ported version featuring a monster 195cc intake port. The unported Twisted Wedges were quite impressive, so these heads should take the Two-Valve to a new level.
