Performance Pack Mustang!

Now, if you're wondering which should be your first mods then most likely this should not apply to you but get the Performance Pack Mustang Ecoboost ! Yes! Performance Pack because you will regret it later if you're running on the basic model and want to add mods later. Also, if you can get the premium; its worth the extra money, but if you can't then its okay because you can always install a better audio system and small details like that. What comes better with the Performance Pack ? Here is the list :

  • Strut-tower brace
  • Gauge pack (oil pressure and boost) (Looks more professional than adding later on)
  • Unique chassis tuning
  • Upsized rear sway bars (fastback only)
  • Larger radiator ( Keeps engine cooler for a longer period of time)
  • Heavy-duty front springs (fastback only) (Handling)
  • Larger brake rotors with 4-piston front calipers ( Over the 2 pistons, more is better)
  • Unique 19” x 9” Ebony Black-painted aluminum wheels ( I personally love the rims)
  • 255/40R19 summer only tires ( Personal choice)
  • Unique calibration (EPAS, ABS and ESC) (Self Explanatory)
  • 3.55 limited-slip rear axle ( Instead of the 3.15 basic model)
  • Spoiler delete (Not so costly)

That is a lot of labor and work you will have to add later if you have the basic model. Let me be honest, unless you can do these installments by yourself rather than by a professional, you will start off with a loss out the back. Some are quite easy but for example an upgrade from the 3.15 LSRA to the 3.55 is already close to a $1500 installment so do the math.

Top 5 Mods (In order)

Overview

Now, this is all just preference and personal opinion to me. You can do as you like, but this is what I would recommend.

  1. Catch can

What is the purpose of the catch can? It is used due to the limited closing of the valve rings; if they did close, the pistons would not be able to function properly. This gap creates pressure and it is send to the crankcase and valve cover where used up burn oil in send along with it to the valve cover. Which ultimately, in a turbocharged car you will have some of these oils that circulate through the breather line and flow into the intake and inter-cooler; reducing efficiency in heat exchanges. Installing the catch can will prevent such a catastrophic damage in the long run and it will give these oils a place to "sit" in. Parts are subjective based on interest.

Tuner

2.Tune it

Lets get one thing straight.You will be spending $400+ on tunes/device so be ready to spend some money, but with quantity comes quality(usually). A tune up carries on to manage and upgrade three basic systems. (1) Air intake system (2) Electrical/ignition system (3) Fuel System. What else is there to say? It is pretty self explanatory on what id does and one last tip; after getting your preferred tuner toy, ( with basic 2 or 3 tunes pre-installed) go to the website or place of purchase and ASK FOR A PRO TUNE. Yeah the basic ones do help, but honestly you can always get a better one which is recommended . So what kind of tunes are there? Some examples are: Bama, Unleashed, VMP,SCT, COBB, LIVERNOIS.

Intake

3.Cold Air Intake (CAI)


This is a very debatable mod on my behalf and could have chosen spark plugs as number 3, but who doesnt want a shiny metal tube right? In all seriousness, the benefits of a better intake is to efficiently give more air to your engine while providing better gas mileage with more horsepower. Generally without a tune, one can see from 5+->15+ Horsepower just from the intake installation. (Might be exaggerating the numbers a bit) Popular CAI choices are : AirAid, AEM, K&N, INJEN, ROUSH, BBK, C&L.

Intercooler

4. Intercooler

If you own a turbocharged or supercharged car, then you will need an intercooler. Why? Because I said so. JK. You do need it because of what? You guessed it, Temperatures. This intercooler allows air charge to be cooled before entering the engine. So we can conclude that efficiency in a better intercooler over OEM can range from around 5%->10% and reduce temperatures up to 40C. With this being said. Go for an intercooling system of your choice.

Exhaust

5. Exhaust System

If you have experienced the sound of the Ecoboost and would like more rawr to come out; well I have good news and bad news. The good news is that you can! There are many brands out there that offer great quality to your comfort. The bad news? Dont expect to sound like a 5.0 either because you have to work with what you got. Plus, its a turbo engine and it sounds really sweet. What are the benefits of an exhaust system? Well, for starters, you are freeing horsepower hidden in your car by allowing a quicker and more efficient path for gases to escape . Therefore, allowing fuel and air to exit out the combustion chambers faster. More air to the engine=more power. How about down-piping? My honest opinion? I wouldn't recommend it; top brands? Magnaflow, Flowmaster, X-Force, MBRP, Corsa Roush, Borla.
