Fox-bodied Mustang for 2013 SEMA show

Tampa Florida: Muscle Mustangs & Fast Fords magazine is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year. And to help celebrate a quarter century of innovation in Ford power, it is building an over-the-top project, dubbed “Hypersilver” to be unveiled at the 2013 SEMA show.

Featuring styling cues from the past two and a half decades, and a few that have yet to be seen, Hypersilver will be the most extreme Fox-body project car the magazine has ever undertaken.

At the heart of Hypersilver will be a 427cu in P-38 engine from Jon Kaase Racing Engines. Expected to make over 600 horsepower, the Windsor-based engine will feature a JKRE cross-ram intake with their acclaimed canted valve P-38 cylinder heads on a Ford Racing Boss block.

The base car for this project is the shell of an ’88 Mustang GT, since MM&FF premiered that very year. The finished product will be a show-and-go Fox-body that could compete in a car show field, on the open track, or even the dragstrip.


Chuck Lawrence of Jon Kaase Racing Engines installs the rotating assembly from DSS and valvetrain components from Comp Cams.


Because the P-38’s induction system flows so well at 0.400-0.500 inches of valve lift, the camshaft could be tailored with 5- to 10-degrees less duration. This usually results in smoother idle and better low-end manners. These heads favor camshafts with close lobe centers that tend to produce more power.
