We all know the stock '18 manifold flows extremely well from the factory, but when adding additional CNC porting from Brett Barber at Air Flow Solutions the power increase is real.
These Mustang intakes have been shown to pick up a nice horse power increase over the S and even the S manifolds. Tech Note: cars may require modification to the angle of coupler on the cold air intake for proper fitment. The Steeda closed box cold air kit is also a proven performer. Add this high flowing intake for a proven combo, will fit all S Mustang GT. Expect a 25HP increase more then stock, 30HP increase over stock at mid-range [max gains].

Resources Project Vehicles Videos C. B Info Prop 65 Warning. Stay Connected Facebook. Newsletter Signup.For more than a decade, installing an overdrive-automatic or manual transmission into a vintage Mustang has been a popular upgrade. It's more common these days, but some people still aren't convinced of the numerous benefits of such a conversion. If you could only do one upgrade to your vintage Mustang that's a fairly nice driver and is reasonably complete, installing a transmission with an overdriven top gear is the single best thing you can do to improve the car's overall usefulness.
Even though we first owned a '66 fastback with an AOD more than 10 years ago, the novelty never wears off when cruising in an early Mustang on the freeway. Shift an AOD into Fourth gear or a T5 into Fifth, and engine speed is reduced by more than 30 percent while vehicle speed remains the same. That said, there are numerous other benefits to an overdrive transmission, and reduced engine speed at swift highway velocities is only the beginning.
Other major advantages include better fuel economy, less engine wear, quieter cruising on the highway, and in the instance of the typical T5, even better off-the-line acceleration due to a lower numerically higher First-gear ratio compared to four-speeds like the vintage Top Loader.
We're covering swaps for both automatic and manual transmissions, as well as another popular swap, converting a car with an automatic to a manual. There are separate sections for each of these three possible avenues.
If an automatic to a five-speed manual is a swap you want to do, then it's easiest to go from an automatic straight to a T5 five-speed. Avoid doing the process twice by swapping to a four-speed, then realizing later that a five-speed is clearly the better option. In any case, an overdrive transmission, either an automatic or a manual, is an upgrade you'll love more and more every time you drive your vintage Mustang.
Having owned and driven numerous early Mustangs and other vintage Ford cars with either a T5 or an AOD, we can tell you the appeal of the conversion never wears off. Four-Speed Automatic Since a majority of the vintage Mustangs produced came with either a C4, FMX, or C6 automatic, we'll begin with installing an overdrive automatic in their place. These days, it's nearly a bolt-in since much of the research has already been done.
To answer the most common question of "what overdrive trans should I use? The Ford AOD has at least as much aftermarket support as a C4, and there are numerous options for obtaining one. New AODs also come with the correct torque converter for your application based on discussions with the companies that build the transmissions. Another route is a used AOD from a donor car. The best choice is one from an automatic-equipped ''93 5.
Stick with a Fox-body AOD from a '93 or older 5. The torque converter in a Fox 5. The next main component you'll need is an aftermarket crossmember because the stock one won't work. One stock piece that will work is your car's existing C4 transmission mount. Moving on to the smaller but equally important pieces to complete a conversion, you'll also need a throttle-valve TV cable that does the equivalent for an AOD that a vacuum modulator and kick-down linkage does with a C4, FMX, or C6: It makes the transmission shift properly.
Wrapping up the laundry list of required parts for the typical vintage-Mustang AOD swap, you'll also need an AOD dipstick and tube the ones from a Fox 5.Forums New posts Search forums. Media New media Search media.

One For The Haters: LS-Swapped S550 Turbo Mustang
My question is, Would I be able to swap front brakes from a s into the fox body?

Mustang5L5 i'm familiar with penetration Mod Dude. Feb 18, 33, 9, Massachusetts. Which brakes are they?
The base model 2-piston brakes, or the 4-piston brembo look-alikes. There are adapter kits, but they work with specific brake setups.
For axample, this one works with the GT brembo. This kit includes the necessary hardware to mount 4 piston GTspec brake calipers to Mustang spindles.
Kit contents: 2x Adapter brackets 2x Sets of hardware 2x 0. Reactions: Slow92Vert. Mustang5L5 Thank you for the response. They are Base Model brakes, and are 2 pistons. I actually looked into that kit with the spacer for the rotors.

But I couldn't find any info that would help me figure out if the brake pistons fit the adapter they include.The lethargic days of the AOD transmission are long behind us as Ford revamped the automatic-equipped Mustang landscape in and it has never looked back.
Yes, we are praising the 6R80 as a remarkable transmission that continues to leave a positive mark in the history books of Mustang performance. The Mod Nationals even has a dedicated category built around the transmission, showing the excitement the market has for it. We work with customers on a case-by-case basis on when to convert to either transmission, but we typically see the reliability ed note: with 6R80 go away somewhere in the 8s.
The benefits, however, extend far beyond better reaction times and durability. The car would work better with a 3. A 6R80 Delete Kit was installed early last year, and allowed them to tame down the launches and concentrate on consistent and quick foot times. The result has been a best short time of 1. Ciborowski is also the Limited Street ET record holder this year with a best of 8.
There are three stages available for Powerglide kits—Stage 1 is recommended for 1, rwhp, Stage 2 is good to 1, rwhp, and Stage 3 is rated for combinations up to 1, rwhp. Moving to the TH transmissions, the first two stages are good for rwhp and 1, rwhp, respectively.
Stage 3 is recommended for any combinations that are up to and over 1, rwhp. Transmission Specialties provides the units for the first three stages of Powerglide and TH The 6R80 continues to prove its meddle as a suitable and capable transmission, especially for street cars that require an Overdrive option, but there comes a time when the power and performance require something a bit more racy.
Here is a Transmission Specialties Powerglide, which is available in three different configurations depending on power level, combination, and vehicle specs. There are four levels available for the TH transmission. Previous article.And while the Chevy vs. Whalley is a fabricator and professional drifter out of Detroit, Michigan, and is familiar very familiar with the LS platform.
He has owned several daily drivers that were powered by the popular Chevrolet mill. Is the Coyote a good engine? Can it make big power when built? Also yes. The problem with the Ford engines is they are expensive, and when Whalley purchased the car, the owner wanted the engine and transmission out of the S for a restomod build. Since Whalley was starting without a power plant, it only makes sense to go with an LS.
The parts are inexpensive, readily available, and his entire drift team runs the LS platform. After several dyno pulls, the S put down horsepower and monstrous lb-ft of torque before running out of fuel system. We will safeguard your e-mail and only send content you request.
