Youtuber’s Mustang Blessed with Ultimate Coyote Power

S550 Mustang

After months of hard knocks and a blown motor, this S500 prepares itself for a glorious 2,000-hp upgrade.

If you’re an avid Youtube explorer, you’ve undoubtedly come across Mustang fanatic Gavin Simon, aka itsjusta6and his ever-evolving S550 Mustang build. The unique, six-speed manual ride recently ripped off its first-ever nine-second pass, an impressive feat indeed. But the road to get there hasn’t exactly been smooth. He’s blown up one motor already, which isn’t hard to do when you’re stuffing insane amounts of boost in it via a VMP supercharger. Or ripping off hard passes every weekend.

Thus, Simon soon realized he needed a beefier bottom end. And he found it nine hours away in Nashville in the form of an MMR Pro Mod 1500 series short block. One stuffed with goodies including Manley rods, pistons, and Teflon-coated cylinder walls. It’s a beautiful piece of machinery, and one that should stand up well in the face of prodigious boost. Not to mention upwards of 2,000 horsepower.

Simon and his pop-up crew quickly strap down the new motor and head off to their own pop-up meet. One that they’re already a little bit late for. But when they arrive, they’re quickly blown away by the hundreds of people that have shown up to hang out. The scene is so insane that police quickly roll in, but they wind up being incredibly cool about the whole thing. Heck, they even ask Simon why he didn’t bring his Mustang along.

As they always do, things quickly devolve, however. After a few smoky burnouts and donuts, the cops are called again and our crew quickly disbands. Which means one thing – tacos! But above all, this trip also means big things for one boosted Mustang. And we can’t wait to see how it all turns out moving forward.
