2011-2014 Mustang GT: Specs, Custom Parts and Coyote Power

Mustang fans did not know what was coming. The S197 was already popular with enthusiasts, rocking that breathtaking retro style. But this generation had something even better in store to take our breath away.

Here Comes the Coyote — The 2011 Mustang GT Howls

While the 2010 Mustang GT had given the S197 a design facelift, for the 2011 Mustang GT, Ford wanted to look under the hood. After all, aggressively good looks will only get you so far, especially on the track. And that’s where the Mustang was getting destroyed. Luckily, the Ford Modular V8 engine was ready to evolve, and it came in the ford of the 5.0L DOHC V8, or as we all know it: the Coyote. This an engine that has already stood the test of time, staying in every model through the 2020 Mustang GT. But, the 2011 Mustang GT got there first, earning it a bright spot in the history books. The Coyote is fast, angry, efficient and begging to be modified. What’s not to love?

Last of a Generation — The 2014 Mustang GT Closes A Chapter

Yes, the 2014 Mustang GT was the last of the Fifth Generation, the final S197 model. While this period brought a lot of upgrades, from aerodynamics to design changes, by the end, it was the Coyote engine that sunk its claws in. Every bit of extra horsepower gave us a reason to fall in love with the powerful pony all over again.

What Are the Best Custom Parts for the 2011-2014 Mustang GT?

From the 2011 Mustang GT to the 2014 model year, this is a fantastic platform — and it can easily be modified for higher performance. Many people like to start with induction, such as a bolt-on cold air intake from JLT or PMAS, or some exhaust upgrades. We offer a wide variety of exhaust setups, including our in-house Lethal Performance brand, as well as Magnaflow, Roush Performance, MBRP, Borla, Ford Racing, Pypes, Bassani and Corsa options.

Upgrade Your Ride

From there, suspension and driveline are typically the next stops in upgrading your 2011-2014 Mustang GT. Things such as lowering springs, control arms, Panhard rods, shocks and struts make significant improvements to handling as well as performance on the street and dragstrip. Some of our top suspension brands are BMR Suspension, Eibach, UPR Products, Viking Performance and Steeda. A short throw shifter from Barton Industries or MGW will take the slop out of shifting, making it easier to shift into gears and providing a shorter throw.

Take It To Another Level

Next, you may want to look into a single piece aluminum or carbon fiber driveshaft from DSS, as well as an upgraded clutch kit from Mcleod, Exedy, Spec or Mantic. We offer many different options for these depending on the type of driving and power you want for your 2011-2014 Mustang GT.

Give Your Mustang More Power

If that’s not enough, choose a Power Package, or any of the supercharger or turbo kit upgrades. Adding a supercharger to your Mustang GT will indeed make a huge difference. Our best selling brand by far is Whipple Superchargers, the twin-screw supercharging experts! A few other options you should consider would be VMP, Procharger, Vortech or Paxton. We can dial you in with any of these products and package them to meet your specific goals.

Add The Finishing Touches

Tie it all together in The Tune Shop with a custom tune from Lund Racing. Lethal Performance has been dealing with Lund Racing since 2009. We are their largest distributor and have been selling, as well as running, their tunes with great success over the years.
