It’s always been the plan to get long tube stainless steel headers for my S550 Ford Mustang. There are many different choices for this platform, but Corsa headers really jumped out at me when I was shopping. It’s no surprise, because Corsa Performance has traditionally made terrific exhaust cat-back systems, some of the best ever.
Having finished the install I was ready to hit the rollers for a ProCharged Mustang dyno morning. I was hoping to make over 600whp from the stage 2 kit. Some guys were getting over 650whp, and I ended up running a bit of race fuel. First I had to test the car though.
I decided it was time to make some serious changes. To start off we need to get some boost. This holiday weekend I’m going to be adding 10PSI during my stage 2 mustang procharger install! It’s all about maximum performance and handling from here on out.
The Performance Pack didn’t get a spoiler, Ford deletes it from the car if you order this package. Why do they do this? I’ve never heard a concrete answer, but people’s guesses range from wind tunnel testing to conspiracy theories. Personally, I think Ford figured a performance package buyer would possibly want a blank slate.
I waited for MMD’s V-Series Grilles to come out. They were the best looking mustang grilles out of all the models on the market at the time. I was very excited about the install, but dreading taking off the front fascia.
Having completed the exhaust install I started to enjoy the car on the road. I was practicing my heel-toe and just having fun while the engine broke in. I also started itching for more mods and the lack of mustang led lights was a problem, incandescent lighting sucks!
