When the new 2005 Mustang was launched, Ford's fifth-generation pony car combined classic early-fastback styling cues with a potent drivetrain and upgraded suspension in a well-appointed package. Scores of customers flooded into dealerships and more than 500,000 were sold by 2010. By revisiting its history, Ford set a new direction for the Mustang that continues today, and in doing so, it also redefined the modern muscle car landscape. Several years after the launch of the new classically styled Mustang, the retro Dodge Challenger and Chevrolet Camaro entered the market. However, the Mustang has sold in far greater numbers.

Automotive writer Jacob Amatisto explains how to extract the ultimate performance from each component group of the 2005-2010 Mustang designated the S197, so you enjoy a quicker, more responsive handling and vastly improved car. Amatisto provides insightful and comprehensive guidance for planning and installing a complete performance package. Suspension is the key to harness the potential of the Mustang. Selecting and installing the ideal coil-over shocks, tubular control arms, and sway bars for the front suspension provide a substantial handling and road holding improvement. Upgrading the solid axle rear suspension with an aftermarket Watts linkage helps mitigate tramping and delivers far better control. To increase engine output, more air must be drawn in and out of the engine, so the leading exhaust systems and cold-air intakes are reviewed. But that's just the start to higher engine performance. The range of Roots and centrifugal superchargers offer enormous and cost-effective power increase, and are covered here. The current crop of high-performance aftermarket heads and how to obtain more performance through porting stock heads are discussed. Large aftermarket throttle bodies, high-capacity fuel injectors, and other fuel system upgrades are offered to support those modifications. Hand-held engine controllers for remapping the ignition system are reviewed so you achieve the ideal combustion ratio. The best aftermarket forged piston, rod, and crankshaft packages are also reviewed. In addition, transmission, nitrous oxide, turbocharger, rear differential, interior upgrades, chassis, electrical, wheels, and tires are all covered.

A stock Mustang is a blank canvas for you to create a high-performance masterpiece. But you need expert guidance for selecting, installing, and calibrating the best parts combination. Whether you're installing suspension parts, intake and heads, power adders, cams, or other parts, this volume provides the detailed information and instruction you need.
