Steeda Debuts Performance And Visual Updates For Euro Mustang GT 11
Posted by Cristian Gnaticov in Ford, Ford Mustang, Steeda, tuning on 01 11th, 2018

Renowned Ford specialist Steeda has added the Mustang GT on its tuning list in the European market.

Upgrades include revised engine mapping, increased stabilized flow of cool air, and the addition of a custom exhaust system, which helps the 5.0-liter V8 unit make 480PS (473hp) and 752Nm(555lb-ft) of torque.

Significant changes have been made to the car’s chassis and suspension setup as well, as the range-topping V8 model, baptized Q500 by Steeda, now has thicker adjustable anti-roll bars on both ends, with solid billet ends and mounts. It also gets progressive rate springs, strut tower brace, and upgraded bushes for the independent rear suspension.

The result of all of this is a lowered stance, and improved cornering abilities, without sacrificing the comfort level.

Elsewhere, the pony car features subtle exterior styling that’s said to “tighten” its “iconic lines”, and it includes a discrete front splitter and ducktail spoiler, both of them playing a major role in the Mustang’s improved aerodynamics. These can be complemented by 20-inch rims, wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires, or Cup derivative for the track-focused variants.

The entire bundle of upgrades costs £8,998 ($12,167) in Britain, is available to order at Ford dealer Haynes of Maindstone, in Kent, and can be specified during build or retrofitted at a later stage.

Steeda offers a range of options as well, such as the coilover kit, heavy-duty Tremec Magnum XL six-speed manual gearbox, upgraded twin-plate clutch, heavy-duty aluminum driveshafts, ventilated discs, and custom paint finishes for the calipers and engine compartment.

Moving forward, the tuner will be focusing its attention on the 2018 Ford Mustang, which arrives in Europe later this year.

My Steeda is faster and more powerful than your horse! That’s what you can say when you visit the Florida-based tuners Steeda Autosports in your 2011 Mustang GT. They will personally inject your Mustang with an entry-level kit boosting power output to 450hp from the stock 412hp. This is accomplished in part by a cold-air intake and a SCT Xcal3 handheld flash tuner scan tool that you get as part of the Steeda Sport performance package.

We already know the new 2011 Ford Mustang GT is laying down a little more power than what Ford claims so expect the add-on kit from Steeda to be an all-around winner. Not only do you get more power with the Steeda Sport package, but you get a new hood, rear wing, ‘Sidewinder Graphics’, sport springs and 9.5×20-inch Spyder wheels wrapped in Nitto NT05 tires. The total package comes complete for a total vehicle price less than $40,000. More WIN for Ford!
