The 435 horsepower under the hood of the new Ford Mustang GT is already enough to turn heads, and when paired with the superior handling, you’ll find that the GT is already an incredible specimen of a vehicle. There is enough power in the standard engine of the GT to knock you back, but there is enough power to keep you in control. Straight from the start, fans of performance cars were blown away with the power inside the Mustang GT, but Ford, always looking to impress, recently announced the release of three additional performance packages that will be available for the Ford Mustang.
Power packs, the first of the power packages, is a stage package of parts and engine tunes that will work on cars from 2015 to 2017 model years. Power pack one is a basic package that features a K&N high-flow air filter and an ECU tune, which increases the horsepower by 13 and boosts the torque by 16 lb-ft. The power pack one also grants the driver an increase in low-end torque as well, providing an additional 40 lb-ft when the engine reaches 1500 rpm.
The other two packages come with features that were lifted from the Shelby GT350, with their own individual tuning calibrations and different parts. The power pack 2 features the cold-air intake from the GT350, plus an 87-mm throttle body. This brings the driver a 21 horsepower increase and a 24 lb-ft increase in torque. The power pack 3 adds all the features of the power pack 2, plus the intake manifold of the GT350. This brings the driver 37 more horses under the hood and five more lb-ft of peak torque. When the engine hits 7500 rpm, look out for 60 more horsepower.
