HOT LAP | S197 VS S550 – Justin Compares His Mustang GT’s

PAOLI, Pa. (October 30, 2018) — Justin Dugan’s two Oxford White Mustang GTs grace the AmericanMuscle (AM) garage for this episode of AM’s Hot Lap. Those who have followed his S197’s build progression should be familiar with the various stages of Justin’s ‘stang, but now there’s a new steed in the AM stable awaiting it’s first stage of modifications! Before he loads his parts cannon, Justin created a detailed video to compare the two generations side-by-side, weighing their pros and cons.

“On paper, there really is no comparison between the two- stock for stock.  The 2019 and its gen 3 coyote, 10-speed auto and new tech blow the S197 out of the water.  However, there is always more to a car than a spec sheet and the 2014, stock or modified, still is highly regarded amongst enthusiasts as being one of Ford’s best efforts to date.”
-Justin Dugan

From dimensions to design, and powertrain to power-adders; Justin addresses all the intricacies between the two styles and provide his critiques on the new 2018/’19 styling. On top of that, Justin test drives both of his Oxford Mustangs while planting the seed on some of the future modifications for his new 10-speed auto equipped 2019 GT Premium.
