Just as Steeda has done for three decades now, we’ve delivered outstanding performance with precision engineered and high quality upgrades built for the enthusiast, by the enthusiasts. Donnie Gilder’s 4,000+ lb street-driven S550 Mustang is further proof of that.

Consistency ultimately brought home the win for Donnie, running bottom 9’s to 8’s all Friday morning til Sunday afternoon with 1.28-1.31 short times, and zero spin all weekend...

One of the most highly anticipated changes for the 2018 Mustang GT was the switch from the venerable 6R80 6-Speed automatic transmission to the 10R80 10-Speed that made its debut in the 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor. Behind the High-Output 3.5 EcoBoost in a truck the new tranny has proven to be quite stout, but the really question was how it would perform behind the new dual-injected 5.0 Coyote V8 in everybody's favorite Pony-Car. Luckily for us, SVTP Vendor Late Model Restoration just picked up a new 2018 Mustang GT equipped with the new 10R80 auto; along with a few other popular options... Click Here to Continue Reading...

Tech: VMP Performance Focus RS SEMA Build

One new Ford that I have been itching to spend more time in is the potent Focus RS. With over 300HP on tap and AWD keeping that power planted the car definitely has the makings for a very fun ride.

So when I first heard that they were building an RS for the 2017 SEMA show I knew I wanted to dig in and learn more about this project... Click Here to Continue Reading...

American Muscle Installs a Vortech V-3 Si-Trim on a Coyote GT

Several years ago SVTP Vendor American Muscle took the plunge and got in deep with their original content video production, and I have to say that the production value and content is top notch. Take the latest episode of their Hot Lab series for example. Stephanie Wood, an AM staffer, walks you through the installation of a Vortech V-3 Si-Trim supercharger kit on an S-197 Mustang GT. From tear-down to test-drive drive she discusses the finer points of the entire process and supporting mod choices. The episode is capped off with some dyno runs and a trip to the drag strip for some real world results...
