New 2015 Mustang Rear Differential Bushing Kit From Steeda

Steeda  Auto sports has introduced a new rear differential bushing insert system for the new 2015 S550 Mustang (GT, EcoBoost, V6).

This new design is available in street or full race combo system and will install in less than 1 hour.

These kits are fully adjustable and can be easily removed – it simply doesn’t get any better than this!

What do these differential bushing insert kits do you may ask?  Well they help eliminate pinion angle changes, wheel hop, differential deflection all while increasing traction for better launches and better street handling!  Watch the video we have included and you will see for yourself what they do

Unlike other competitors’ kits that will increase NVH (noise, vibration, harshness), and take 3-4 hours to install forcing you to permanently modify the rear IRS suspension with a sawzall, This Steeda kit does not! Steeda’s kit installs in under 1 hour, adds ZERO increase in NVH, is adjustable and can be easily removed at any time.

Steeda currently offer 3 kits:

Polyurethane – Aluminum and then a Street/Race combo kit

The Polyurethane kit is made from high-strength urethane to Steeda’s exact specifications and durometers, the kit comes with 2 different bushing options – red are the ‘street’ 80 durometer bushings and the black ‘performance’ are a 90 durometer bushings. Both bushing options will increase performance with no increase in NVH, a Steeda-exclusive.

Steeda’s kit adds the strength and support the OEM bushings need to perform. Once again, this is not a permanent modification – there is no drilling, cutting or pressing required. Simply loosen and remove a couple bolts and this kit installs in less than 1 hour. Bushings are included for both the front and rear differential mounting locations. Grade 10.9 hardware is included with zinc-plated washers.

 

Note: For hardcore enthusiasts what want ZERO pinion deflection, then the Aluminum kit would be your option. The aluminum kit features aluminum bushing inserts. For race-use only as it will increase NVH and gear noise.

Product Benefits:

Limits IRS differential movement while increasing traction and eliminating wheel hop

No increase in NVH unlike the competition

Easily removable, not a permanent modification

100% designed, manufactured and made in the USA

2016 Mustang Option A Nod Back To The Sixties

2016 Mustang Option A Nod Back To The Sixties

Ford Motor Company have just celebrated the 51st birthday of the Ford Mustang and it seems that the 2015 Mustang model was only released yesterday but Ford are already promoting the all new 2016 Ford Mustang options and models.

This time with a short video showing a new option for the new model year in what appears to be a nod back to Mustangs of the 1960s. Ford is bringing back a hood with turn signals in the vents.

In 1967, Ford offered an optional hood on the Mustang with two heat extraction vents that faced the windscreen. Inside those vents were amber turn signals, so, you know, drivers could see their own blinkers blinking. A novelty feature, sure, but a nice historical cue that Ford is bringing back for its updated 2016 ‘Stang.

We also know that Ford will offer a California Special pack on the 2016 Mustang GT (see our recent news blog story on all the 2016 model options). Beyond that, we don’t expect too many more changes, seeing as how the Mustang was just completely redesigned for 2015.

2015 Roush Stage 3 Mustang Details Announced

2015 roush mustang stage 3

2015 Roush Stage 3 Mustang Details Announced

ROUSH is a name synonymous with high-horsepower and fiercely-competitive Ford vehicles. The new Roush performance Mustangs are here and we think you will agree – they are stunning in every shape and form and if Jack Roush has put his name on them, well you can be that they will handle and perform bettter than any other Roush Mustang ever to hit the road.

There is nothing quite as intense as the raw power of a 5.0L V8 engine. Add ROUSH Performance’s new 2015 2.3L TVS supercharger to the mix, and you’ve got a whole new beast on your hands. The all-new 2015 Stage 3 Mustang is a force to be reckoned with that puts out over 670 horsepower. Stage 3 Kits start at $21,995 above the Base Mustang GT price.

The 2015 ROUSH Stage 3 Mustang is the most powerful and well-balanced production Mustang to launch out of the Roush Performance garage. For starters, standard features include a Roush Quad-Tip exhaust (with the ROUSH Active Exhaust System as an optional add-on), and of course, the fierce new “R7” aerobody, complete with graphics and badging.

Twists and turns are no match for the RS3, which comes equipped with a standard single adjustable coilover suspension system, with an optional competition-tuned 3-way adjustable system available.

The 2015 ROUSH Stage 3 is truly the ultimate in American muscle. Jack Roush’s vision shines through this perfect combination of raw power and meticulous handling and braking capabilities, providing the driver access to the robust attitude and performance of a racecar, while maintaining a comfortable and uniquely ROUSH driving experience. Oh and did we mention it comes with a three year 36,000 mile warranty.

 

Ford Announces the 2016 Mustang GT/CS—GT, EcoBoost and Convertible Get New Features

Ford Announces the 2016 Mustang GT/CS—GT, EcoBoost and Convertible Get New Features

Ford’s iconic Mustang is forever evolving. And for 2016 Ford announces the 2016 Mustang GT/CS—GT, EcoBoost and Convertible Get New Features. Enthusiasts can now select between the fastback and convertible body styles, but the big news is the return of the California Special Package and the hot, new Pony Package for the EcoBoost Mustang. These trim packages were first available in the 1960s, and again forty years later on the S197 models. But the 2016 feature and option list runs so much deeper.

All 2016 Mustang will get hood vent-integrated turn signals, which was first offered on the 1967 Mustang. “Secondary indicators in the hood vents represent an iconic piece of pony car DNA,” said Melanie Banker, Mustang marketing manager. Now, this segment-exclusive feature will serve as an additional “heads-up” for Mustang GT drivers.
“Mustang enthusiasts are not shy about telling us what they want,” added Banker, “and we’re constantly exploring ideas together with our engineering team to develop new features we know our customers will love. These new hood vent indicators for the GT model are a perfect example of us communicating customer feedback to Mustang engineers and the team responding with an exclusive new feature for owners of the 2016 Mustang GT.”

Wheels, Stripes and Trim
Ford knows Mustang owners love personalization, so for 2016 it is offering packages that fit the times. We’ve all seen the blacked out, or “murdered” look and Ford will make it easy for Mustang GT owners to capture it with the new Black Accent Package, available this fall. According to Ford, “Fastback and convertible Mustang GT models with this package will showcase special 19-inch black-painted alloy wheels, black decklid spoiler, dark taillamp trim, and 5.0 and pony logos in black.” And the Brothersperformance.com team expects this to be a hot one.
Those looking to mix up the colors might want to select the painted black roof option that’s now available for the EcoBoost-equipped Mustang and the Mustang GT. This will give your 2016 Mustang a look similar to that of the 2012 Boss 302.
Ford is also offering an exclusive to the Mustang EcoBoost Premium, which is fresh take on the Pony Package. The new Pony Package will include special 19-inch polished aluminum wheels, tri-bar pony logo on the grille, side stripe and chrome window surround. The fastback Mustang with Pony Package is sure to stand out from the crowd when it arrives in late 2015.
The Ford Mustang is all about racing and so the sixth-generation Mustang will be made available with over-the-top racing stripes direct from the factory. Stripes will be offered in black or silver, and will be available on most color and trim packages.

And while more subtle-looking than in previous years, Ford will bring back the California Special package. Ford unveiled the 2008 Mustang GT/CS, or California Special to match the style of the 1968 GT/CS. Ford originally built approximately 4,118 units in 1968. The original California Special Mustangs were sold on the West coast and developed by Carroll Shelby. They featured fog lamps, twist-type hood pins, a race-style gas fill cap, 1965 T-Bird taillights, GT/CS side striping, and deck-lid spoiler. For 2016, Mustang GT Premium owners can order the California Special Package with a host of features including:
• 19-inch ebony-painted machined aluminum wheels
• Ebony leather/Miko suede seat inserts with red contrast stitching and embossed logo
• Unique door panel inserts and premium carpet featuring red contrast stitching
• Unique aluminum dashboard finish with California Special badge
• Hood and side stripes
• Black pedestal spoiler
• Unique faux gas cap
• Strut tower brace with unique California Special badging
• Dark taillamp accents
• Black-painted mirrors, hood vents
• Performance front splitter
• Unique grille with tri-bar pony logo

Convertible Stang A Real Performer
Ford’s go-fast option, the Performance Pack will now be offered on the 2016 Mustang GT convertible, when equipped with manual transmission. To maintain the highest level of handling and ride quality, Ford increased structural bracing, plus it revised critical suspension components, along with the brakes, wheels and tires.
Of course, it will feature improved acceleration, thanks to the 3.73 gears and braking is hopped up with the excellent six-piston Brembos. Performance Pack features include:
• Unique chassis tuning, with strut tower brace and K-brace
• Larger radiator
• Revised suspension with upsized rear sway bar, heavy-duty front springs
• Six-piston Brembo front brake calipers
• 19×9-inch front, 19×9.5-inch rear ebony-painted aluminum wheels with summer tires
• Unique tuning for stability control, ABS and electric power-assisted steering
• Torsen® limited-slip differential with 3.73 axle ratio
• Engine-turned aluminum instrument panel with auxiliary gauges
• More aggressive front splitter; rear spoiler delete

“Ford Mustang GT fastback with Performance Package has been very popular,” said Banker. “Customer feedback indicated a strong desire for the package on the convertible model as well, and the 2016 Mustang GT delivers.”

SYNC 3 Connects Drivers With Their Mustang
SYNC® 3, Ford’s next-generation communications and entertainment system, is coming for Mustang equipped with Premium Package for 2016. With a faster, more intuitive, easier than ever to use interface, improved voice command and AppLinkTM functionality, SYNC 3 now features the ability to update system software via any unlocked Wi-Fi network – bringing Mustang owners closer to their car than ever before.

With the 2015 owning the performance market both on the street and on the track, the 2016 will up the ante, making it harder for the competition. The Shelby GT350 is right around the corner, and will provide a new level of handling and acceleration from a naturally aspirated 500-plus horsepower package.

Mustang Shelby GT350 Will Be For Sale In Limited Numbers

Mustang Shelby GT350 Will Be For Sale In Limited Numbers

When the all-new Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 goes on sale later this year, a few lucky buyers will be able to get their hands on an ultra-collectible 2015 model year example, which the Ford Motor Company is building to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the original Shelby GT350 launched back in 1965. Just 137 examples bearing a 2015 VIN will be built before production switches over to 2016 model year cars.

Of these 137 cars, 100 will be the Shelby GT350 and the remaining 37 cars will be the more hardcore Shelby GT350R. Why such an odd number for the GT350Rs? Because back in the 1960s, Shelby American founder Carroll Shelby insisted that two prototype versions of the original FIA-homologated GT350R be built along with 35 production examples.

While most records show that only 34 production models received serial numbers from Shelby, Ford will now build 37 2015-spec GT350Rs in Carroll Shelby’s memory.

As for the 100 2015-spec GT350s, Ford has confirmed that half of these will be equipped with the car’s available Technology Package and the remaining half will get the Track Package. The tech package adds things like power-adjustable seats, an upgraded audio system, an 8.0-inch touchscreen display and dual-zone climate control. The track package, meanwhile, adds things like magnetic ride suspension, stiffer springs and additional coolers.

Full pricing and specs are yet to be announced but pricing for new GT350 is expected to start at about $53k and peak output from the car’s new 5.2-liter, flat-plane crank V-8 should be more than 520 horsepower.

“Fans of the Shelby brand are among the most passionate in the automotive industry,” Ford Performance marketing manager Henry Ford III said in a statement. “To honor the passion of our fans for Shelby GT350’s 50th anniversary, a limited run of GT350 models will be built in 2015—these cars will be highly coveted by both Mustang and Shelby enthusiasts alike.”
