Very nice. I have a '12 S197 GT manual I ordered new 10 years ago. I did some chassis mods to make it more track capable (like the Boss already is). The car is so nice to drive. The Coyote is loves to rev and is under rated by Ford. This one dyno'ed 400 RWHP, stock. I'll prob keep it for a long time.

Mine dyno’d on a Mustang dyno at 446whp and 501hp at the crank. I’ve had a lot of dyno tuning done to it and done several mods. The rev limiter was bumped up to 8200rpm from 7500rpm stock.
These late model S197s are an absolute blast. Of all the cars I’ve owned I’m kicking myself for not owning one of these until recently. I’ve owned a lot of LS cars but I have to say that this Coyote is such a treat to drive.
I would keep that thing too! The 13-14 S197 is perfect. It’s got the retro look with the modern chassis.
I’ve got a Watts link on mine and I have to say that everyone who has ridden with me during spirited driving is always shocked to learn it has a solid rear axle.
