Coyote Swapped Mercury Capri Makes 780 WHP With A ProCharger 2200 Blower

The Mercury Capri is one of the coolest Fox-bodies of all time thanks to its wide fenders, bubble-backed glass and unique body lines that set it apart from all other Foxes. They were rare back then, but you’d be hard-pressed to find a clean one these days–they’re nearly nonexistent. I’m always on the lookout for cool Capris so when I read the article about this particular example several months ago in Muscle Mustangs & Fast Fords Magazine I had to search for some videos of it running. Why? because it’s got a Coyote Aluminator under the hood with a Paxton 2200 blower huffing enough boost to generate 780 WHP and 605 LB-FT of torque on the dyno. This of course translates into a best past of 10.35 at 139 MPH on a 1.81 60-foot, which means there’s plenty more left in it!
