With all the much-deserved hype surrounding the latest Coyote Mustangs, it might be easy to get discouraged about your pre-2011 Mustang. However, the specialists at Brenspeed have shown that, with the right combination, the Three-Valve 4.6-liter engine in the 2005-2010 Mustangs is still a vital performer.

“This Three-Valve Mustang is one sweet ride,” says Brenspeed. “It is set up for the drag strip and runs the parts in the links below. This used to be a daily driver but now it spends its weekends at the track.”
To make the most of those weekends, this S197 benefits from a 2.3-liter Roush Performance TVS supercharger augmented with the proper supporting hardware. The star of that supporting cast is one of Brenspeed’s robust 4.6 short-blocks dressed out with Kooks long-tube headers and tied together with Brenspeed custom calibration delivered via and SCT Performance tuner (see sidebar for the full mod list).
