Most people want a GT500 for the power—and potential power—that can be had with simple bolt-ons. Sal is no different. He took the 550 factory horsepower and nearly doubled that with a 3.6L Kenne Bell blower, L&M cams, American Racing two-inch headers, and tuning by John Lund. Running on E85, Sal’s Shelby turned the dyno drums to 930 horsepower at 20 pounds of boost, meaning there should be more on tap by adding more boost.
We mentioned that Sal has a large following on Instagram and is well-known as one of the Verde Wheels’ Mustangs. His personal Instagram account has nearly 30,000 followers and there are another 50,000 or so through Verde. That popularity is testimony to the simple yet sensuous Shelby that Sal has created. We’re happy to share it with the world in a more tangible media.
