Steeda 2018 Mustang Silver Bullet Supercharged

Steeda's Edelbrock-Supercharged Silver Bullet

Many of you may know the Silver Bullet as an all-out, streetable N/A Gen 3 Coyote build built with components from some of the best names in the performance aftermarket. The Steeda Silver Bullet drag car, in its naturally aspirated form, worked its way from 12s in the quarter mile brand new, all the way down to a 9.76 ET at 143 MPH! To this day, it holds the title of fastest naturally aspirated 2018+ Mustang on pump gas thanks to the help of so many amazing vendors!

But, 9.76 wasn't fast enough...

Meet the new Silver Bullet! Equipped with an Edelbrock Mustang GT E-Force Stage 2 Street Supercharger Kit, this once high-horsepower, high-revving naturally asipriated drag car just got much faster! With a new look, courtesy of Tint Haus Customs, you can't miss the fact there's something different under the hood!

The Silver Bullet's fastest run is now an 8.46 at 162 MPH in supercharged trim! Stay tuned as we continue to push the envelope even further in 2022!

Scott Runs The Silver Bullet's Fastest Time At 8.46 Seconds At NMRA Spring Break Shootout 2022

2018 Mustang Edelbrock Supercharged Drag Racing

While we were unable to take home yet another win because of new ruling in the True Street class, the Silver Bullet did bring home its fastest run yet and got everyone talking about it at the same time. After reworking the engine up to the day we brought it to the event, Silver Bullet was able to hit two mid-8-second passes in a row. In a first-ever massive wheelie, Scott brought the Silver Bullet through the 60-foot mark faster than the front wheels have crossed it and brought in a time of 8.46 seconds! This means 2 hundreths of a second off of the Edelbrock record with this supercharger, and has given Scott a goal for the next run.

All of us at Steeda are excited to see what else is in store for Scott and the Silver Bullet for the rest of 2022. As we keep pushing even further, we're looking forward to seeing the full extent of what this car is capable of when we go all-out!

Silver Bullet Supercharged Build

Edelbrock Supercharged Steeda Silver Bullet

After experimenting with some more aggressive fuels on the naturally aspirated build, an injector stuck wide open and ultimately leaned out an entire bank on the N/A motor. You can assume what happened from there...

This left us with an amazing opportunity to take the Silver Bullet in a direction it's never gone before.

Partnering with Edelbrock for the Silver Bullet's next chapter was a no-brainer! Their Stage 2 kit offered the perfect starting point for us to continue getting faster and faster in the 1/4 mile! Transforming the Silver Bullet from all-out naturally aspirated to a forced induction build wasn't a small feat. After receiving the Stage 2 Supercharger Kit from Edelbrock, it was time to think supporting mods. For a maximum effort build, supporting mods are key to long term success.

Steeda 2018 Mustang Silver Bullet

Steeda's 2018 Mustang GT N/A Drag Car: Silver Bullet

This 2018 Mustang GT started life as nearly a base model Mustang GT. Now known as the Steeda Silver Bullet, this Mustang holds the record for the fastest naturally aspirated 2018+ Mustang on the planet with a 9.76 second ET trapping 143 MPH!

We were able to take this run-of-the-mill Mustang GT transform it into an all-out performer in the 1/4 mile. By throwing our Steeda suspension to aid that 60’ short time and weight transfer to the rear wheels we were able to get out of the hole quicker than ever - a 1.38 60-foot best, to be exact!

Combine that with the amazing combination of parts from some of the best vendors in the industry, we were able to maximize the full potential of the Gen 3 Coyote under the hood pumping out over 571 horsepower to the rear wheels at our Toys For Tots car show back in December 2019!

Scott Takes The 10-Second Index True Street Win At NMRA Spring Break Shootout 2021

2018 Mustang N/A Drag Racing
We're proud to announce that the Silver Bullet was able to take the "W" for the 10-second index of True Street at the NMRA Spring Break Shootout in Bradenton, Florida! Even with nearly 100 pounds added to the car to meet the class rules, Scott was able to get a 10.02 second average amongst 3 runs! The first two runs being a 9.97, Scott knew that he had to let out just a bit before the end of the track - and ended up with a 10.08 on the third pass to average out to a 10.02!

The team is excited to continue racing and perfecting this build to go even faster into 2021, so be sure to stay tuned as we continue to turn up this naturally aspirated 2018 Mustang GT to go even faster down the 1/4-mile!
