Is your Ford Mustang lacking horsepower or too much of a tame gelding to the eye? Here are six goodies to get the mental gears turning.
OE wheels are some of the best upgrades you can make, due to the faultless fit and their integration with the factory systems. Take these Roush wheels for example, which come in the factory staggered tyre option and integrate with the factory Tyre Pressure Management System.
Price: $5170 with tyres
2.Streetfighter SF375-T Performance Package
For those that elected for the EcoBoost engine option StreetFighter has a performance package perfectly tailored to you. It's a simple upgrade that opens up the intake with a performance air box, and lets the exhaust out the other end thanks to an upgraded stainless steel exhaust system. Mix with a custom dyno tune and you’ve got yourself a small displacement V8 hunter good for 280kW.
3. ProCharger supercharger
Moving away from the conventional positive displacement superchargers, Car Mods have a range of centrifugal superchargers to suit GT Mustangs. The power potential of the ProCharger is phenomenal – the Stage 2 kit from Car Mods will set you back $9999 and on only 9psi delivers gains of up to 171kW on top of the factory figure.
4. Harrop Brake Upgrade
The team at Harrop are known for producing some of the toughest upgrades in the local market. Their big brake kits are famous the world over, and their latest two-piece rotor upgrade for Mustang is no exception. Fully-floating and boasting staggered slot design they look every bit as good as they perform. Discs alone will cost you just under $4K, but bank on a little extra for the caliper upgrade as you’ll be wanting those big Brembo clamps to go along with them, too!
5. Forgeline wheels
Not only are Forgeline wheels some of the best hoops you can invest your coin in, they’re completely customisable too which means you can adapt them to perfectly suit your application. Width, backspacing, offset, brake clearance and finish can all be dialled in to suit your needs, but like any premium experience you’ll feel it in the hip pocket – justifiable though when you consider the performance advantages of their lightweight construction. Price varies based on how wild you choose to go.
6. Herrod Enhancement Package
Herrod have rifled through the Ford Performance catalogue and thrown together the ultimate budget enhancement package, for those looking to give their Mustang a sportier feel. The team reckons the combination of the GT350R steering wheel, the FR3 suspension and the GT cat-back exhaust system is a great way to cover off a few bases without breaking the bank.
