Whether you are racing, daily driving, or just showing off your new S550, chances are you are going to want to add a few mods to it! LMR has broken down the top 11 most popular mods for your 2018 Mustang to give you a quick and easy guide on what to add.
Whether you are restoring or racing your SN95 Mustang you need to keep the engine temperatures cool. With an increased cooling capacity over the stock radiator, reduced weight and a direct fit three row design, the SVE aluminum radiator is the perfect radiator to keep your sn95 running cool.
Easily the most noticeable modification that you can add to your Mustang, wheels not only add styling but they also help with handling and traction. A set of our SVE wheels will be a perfect addition to help you personalize your Mustang and keep you standing out in a crowd. Best of all, wheel and tire kits come mounted and balanced and include free delivery.
When handling and stance are on your list of performance modifications for your sn95 the most effective way to address the issue is with lowering springs. With options from SVE, Eibach, Steeda, H&R, BBK, and Ford Racing available, your next lap around the track or photoshoot will be noticeably different.
With all of the power adders and bolt on engine parts that alter the air to fuel ratio as well as rear end gear changes, tuning is a requirement to ensure that you get every bit of horsepower and torque out of your sn95 engine. SCT offers the BDX, X4, Livewire TS Plus and the ITSX Flash Tuner Programmer for every SN95 owner’s needs.
Do you prefer to shift gears instead of driving an automatic? For a more spirited driving experience enthusiast prefer a manual transmission. A shifter can reduce the distance that you have to cover to shift gears. With a variety of aftermarket shifter options like SVE, Hurst, Pro 5.0, Steeda, Econoshift, and Ford Performance there is no shortage of choices.
Your SN95 Mustang came from the factory with a restrictive air box. Beautify your engine bay and add some horsepower by installing a cold air intake kit. With a cold air intake kit, more air flow will be allowed into your intake manifold which will in turn increase horsepower and fuel efficiency. To acquire all of the benefits of a cold air intake a tune is suggested.
Everyone loves the rumble of a great exhaust system. Add performance and styling to your sn95 Mustang with one of many top exhaust brands such as Flowmaster, Magnaflow, Pypes, Bassani, and MAC. An exhaust upgrade will allow for a more throaty sound but will also allow for better exhaust gas flow. This in addition to a cold air kit, headers and a mid pipe will create the greatest gain of horsepower and torque.
While working in your Mustang engine bay the prop rod tends to be in the way more often than not. Adding hood struts that mount near the hood hinge alleviate the hassle of dodging the prop rod. If you have a show car and like to show off your hard work under the hood, a prop rod will be an eye sore. The use of hood struts allows for a cleaner look.
An aftermarket mid pipe can replace the restrictive factory style mid pipe and will create better exhaust flow which increases performance. Mid pipes come with and without catalytic converters. Mid pipes that do not have catalytic converters are for off road use only. They are also offered in two different layouts, the “x-pipe” and “h-pipe”. The x-pipe provides a more raspy tone to your sn95 exhaust while the h-pipe provides a more mellow tone.
With all of the engine performance modifications, you will definitely need to be able to slow down and stop. Upgrading to a cross drilled and slotted brake rotor will improve brake pad bite and alleviate some of the heating that occurs with standard rotors. With an SVE Cobra Brake kit, you can easily upgrade your V6 or GT to Cobra sized rotors and calipers for an easy upgrade.
All of the horsepower and torque that your sn95 Mustang engine produces needs the proper gearing in the rear end to transfer the power to the wheels. A new gear ratio in your sn95 can improve acceleration and make your Mustang faster! Ford Performance and Yukon help your Mustang transfer that power with 3.55, 3.73, 4.10 and 4.11 ratio rear end gear kits.
