Ford Mustang Performance Pack announced in Australia

June 1, 2017

Ford Mustang buyers are spoilt for choice when it comes to aftermarket options. Even more so than Falcon owners, who had very extensive support when they wanted to enhance their vehicles.

Now they can add a variety of exhaust, suspension and shift-kit enhancements courtesy of Ford Performance. These are available through Ford Dealers and covered by the car’s existing three-year/100,000km warranty when purchased new, or a one-year/20,000km warranty when fitted to a previously-purchased Mustang.

To give the 5.0-litre Coyote V8 a deeper set of lungs, a 2.5-inch stainless steel exhaust system is available, utilising the existing emissions control system and catalytic converter and terminating in 4.0-inch tips, in either chrome or black.

The FR3-M9 Track Handling Pack was developed by the team behind the Focus RS and includes lower springs, assembled front struts and upper mounts, new rear shock absorbers, unique sway bars, toe links and toe-to-knuck bearings. Engineer Andy Vrenko said:

“We wanted to make a product that would be completely unique and special for this car, so we used production processes and production suppliers, and we developed parts that are engineered and tuned for this car and our performance goals. This kit is unique, and none of the parts are available anywhere else.”

Ford’s local You Yangs proving ground at Lara was also part of the testing regime. A short-throw for six-speed manual-equipped Mustangs is available thanks to a shift kit, which promises 19 per cent quicker shifts.

The packages are available now with pricing on enquiry at your Ford Dealer.
