The 2015 Mustang will be upon us any day now. Rumor has it the cars may already be in some dealer showrooms around the USA. Ford has wasted no time in coming up with a bevy of performance parts so that enthusiasts can equip the sixth-generation pony car with a slew of parts that allow for further personalization and more performance.
Our friends over at Mustang6g recently had a look at what is either a flyer or pages from the upcoming Ford Racing catalog. Contained within those pages are some of the top parts we suspect new S550 owners will be craving.
Most notable on the list are upgraded 31-spline half-shafts for the independent rear suspension. It’s unclear whether Ford already knows the stock parts are weak, or if they’re just anticipating the hardcore performance crowd is going to need them.
We also noticed an Eaton TVS based ROUSH supercharger with calibration as well. We already knew that TVS equipped Coyotes would be able to take power above the 600 mark. Once again Ford is offering powertrain warranties that stay in-tact (in some way) when these are purchased through and installed by a Ford dealer.
Making the list as well is a set of ring and pinion gears. Ratios from 3.15 to 3.73 are here. They are listed as being for an 8.8 IRS. Looking up the old part numbers from the Ford Racing web-site we notice that these appear to be the same part number as those for SRA equipped 86-14 Mustangs, with the exception of the addition of the letter “A” at the end of the new part number. Rumor has it these are designed specifically for the IRS housing.
There’s also one-inch lowering springs. There are multiple options for the GT and EcoBoost. With regard to the exhaust system upgrade, the catalog states that it is 30 pounds lighter than the factory system it replaces. That should take some of the stress of a slightly heavier 2015 Mustang off the mind of owners right away. Recaro seats, Brembo Brakes, and a short throw shifter that confirms the return of the remote mounted shifter design for the MT-82.
Notably absent are many performance parts specific to the V6. This again shows us that Ford is either considering phasing out the V6 altogether, or at the least focusing that model on fleet sales, and pushing performance oriented customers to the EcoBoost and GT.
We’re certain we’ll see plenty of these parts gracing SEMA cars when we hit that show in the first week of November. For now we want to know what parts will you be ordering for your 2015? To see more on this head over to Mustang6g.
