VMP developed the ultimate upgrade for ’11-’17 Ford Mustang GT owners with our new VMP Performance Billet Coyote oil pump gears and crank sprockets.

With this upgrade, owners of high horsepower S550s will no longer have to worry about their stock oil pump gears causing damage to their Coyote engines.

In this video, we walk you through a step-by-step how-to install guide for your new VMP Billet Coyote oil pump gears.
