    GT101 Limited - late model Mustang specialist in Colchester

    Some of you may know me from my Roush days - I used to run the Mustang business for Roush in Brentwood from 2005.
    Roush sold the business in 2007 and so the name changed - I went on to manage the Mountune road car business there until late 2013 when I established GT101 Limited which, until very recently, has been dedicated entirely to the Ford GT.
    With the introduction of S550 Mustang we have broadened our horizons and started offering upgrades and servicing for both S197 and S550 Mustangs.
    We are in a new detached workshop and showroom based in Colchester adjacent to a large retail park.

    We are installing dealers for Whipple Superchargers, KW suspension, Anderson Composites, Steeda, Accufab Racing, Stillen. Through our suppliers in the US we also get good pricing on Roush and Ford Racing products.

    We will be building up the first Whipple supercharged S550 Mustang later this month - it will also have KW Suspension, Vossen wheels, Roush active exhaust and lots of nice carbon parts from Anderson Composites - I'll start a separate build thread on this car as we get going.
    Our own demo car was built this week in the US so we're looking forward to getting hold of that to showcase some products and bring it round to a few shows and meets as the weather improves.

    There's more detail about us on our web site so please take a look round. We are planning an open day on Bank Holiday Monday May 30th - I'll start a separate thread for that too in due course.

    In the meantime if you need pricing on parts or advice on fitting etc then don't hesitate to get in touch.

      Well worth knowing

      Thanks Dave, I remember you helped me out when I bought my Roush suspension from my GT from you.

        I found GT101 by a lucky chance after taking another car in to a local company for service, I had taken delivery of a S550 GT in January, It was only after seeing the new Mustang in the Sates that I looked into importing one that I found they were now in full UK spec - I never dreamed I want to drive a American Muscle car (my other car is a Brabus C63 550hp) but after delivery I was disappointed with the handling (oversteer) of what is a great car (looking anyway!) I went along to GT101 and spoke to Dave in November and was impressed by how professional the set up was - I discovered that there were many options to improve Performance and handling and apart from changing the Pirelli P zero Tyres (recommended as they are US spec) I agreed to a change to the suspension set up - and what a difference! - it sits lower and the wheels now fill the arches and it handles completely different (and wasn't silly money) - I am now considering having a Whipple Supercharger fitted this year, (and probably dumping the Tyres) something that I wouldn't have dreamed of 3 months ago!, I am new to this forum - think it's great! and I will keep monitoring it and let you know how it goes with the upgrade!
        Happy Motoring everyone - and a Happy New Year in 2018

              I never did really write a build thread for our demo car. We have a 2016 Mustang GT with Whipple Stage 1 Supercharger (circa 600hp), Pedders coil over suspension, Milltek resonated cat back exhaust, Pro Alloy header tank and a few other minor modifications which lives in our Colchester shop.

              If anyone wants first hand experience of the suspension or supercharger then let me know - that's what it's for.

                I also remember talking to you when you were at Mountune i didn't realise you were the chap at GT101, now that makes sense and i can understand why some of our members on here like Steve Penfold speak so highly of your service

                  Just a massive thanks to Dave and everyone at GT101, they have just installed a stage 2 Whipple supercharger on my 2018 GT.

                  Fantastic service, done a great job, The car is even more awesome, if that is at all possible, the smile on my face is even bigger, amazing, thank you so much. Had a great drive home to the Isle of Wight.
