Jonathan Braffords Epic Grabber Blue Build

Posted by Jason Micallef on 4th Oct 2017

First off we at Hypermotive want to say thanks to Jonathan Brafford for being an amazing customer and allowing us to work and essentially rebuild this beast.  

We met up with Jonathan who wanted not only a fast car, but a fast car that looked amazing.  Hypermotive was his choice and he went with none other than, Whipple Superchargers to move the beast.  

Thanks to TKM Motors for always helping build out shortblocks with the quality and perfection you can expect from some of the fastest guys in the country and a facility thats awe inspiring.  You all have been amazing to work with!  

So, a little about the Mustang! 

2017 Mustang GT Grabber Blue 


2.9 Whipple Supercharger with 3.625 pulley/ 3.5 pulley and 3.0 pulley when he's really wanting to make some power!  Fuel of choice is E85 for his 3.5 and 3.0 pulley and when he wants to go on long trips, 3.625 with 93 octane. 

ID1050x injectors paired with Fore Innovations level 4 dual pump system 

Airlift Performance 3P suspension system 

Vertini RF1.1 in gloss black with a custom 20x10/ 20x10.5 offset wrapped in Michilen Pilot Supersports 

To help the heart breath Jonathan chose Stainless Works headers with Corsa Performance Sport Catback 

To heart of the beast is the TKM built short block, Wiseco pistons, Manley Rods in a FRPP aluminum block.  

Jonathan left the shop making 800rwhp with the 3.5 pulley, we didn't push more as we were still breaking in the engine.  

Plenty of add-ons to include gauges, an incredible custom stereo system and much more!  

We definitely have to give major props to Lund Racing for continually setting the bar with amazing tuning support and even better customer service.
