About Us

Sean Hyland has raced, wrenched, and developed Mustangs for more than half his 34 years in Motorsport. Having cut his teeth in autocross and pro rally competition in the early 1980′s, he moved on to be a successful driver and team owner in the Firehawk Endurance road race series in the 1990s.

Sean founded Sean Hyland Motorsport in 1988. As Sean became immerse in developing the 4.6L engine in the mid 1990s, time commitments forced his own Motorsport adventures to take a back seat to his business, Sean Hyland Motorsport.

Sean is still at the forefront of Modular V-8 development today, and has developed many innovative and cost-effective solutions for both the Ford 4.6L and the 5.0L Coyote engines, including his own proprietary supercharger for the 5.0 engine.  He’s justifiably proud of his achievements, most notably the 4.6L and 5.4L engine block that he designed for high-performance applications. He was also the resident racing expert on Speed Channel’s Sports Car Revolution.  Today, Sean is involved with making Mustangs go faster every day. 

In October 2008 SHM signed a deal with Shelby Automobiles, and from 2008 until mid-2015 SHM was the only authorized mod shop in Canada. It was also the only Authorized Shelby Mod Shop, anywhere outside the U.S!    Later in 2015 SHM will be modifying 2016 Shelby GT350's to right-hand-drive for the export market.  SHM has already successfully converted the new aluminum-bodied 2015 Ford F150 to right hand drive for export. 

Sean has written two books, and has his own DVD (How to Rebuild… The Ford 4.6 Engine) .

In April, 2014 he was joined by Eric Vengroff, entrepreneur and veteran e-marketer, to update the website, re-initialize our advertising campaigns and assist in the development and communication of new lines.  Eric was the former president & CEO of 50Plus.com, the largest site in Canada for the mature and aging populations, which today is part of the ZoomerMedia Limited group of media properties.  He took the company public and it still trades on the TSX Venture exchange under the symbol ZUM.  He was also the former vice president & general manager of CARP, the Canadian Association of Retired Persons, the largest organization for the 45+ in Canada.
