    A great Ford Racing kit would be the Tremec out of the Mach 1 with cooler.

    This post brings me back to the Fox body days...Tremec 6spd was the end-all-be-all mod. And yes, I’d still like to have one. Let’s see who jumps (or has already jumped) on the grenade first to retrofit one of these into a GT.

    How long do you plan on keeping your S550?

    2023, at a minimum. Bought her new in 2016 and have only 25k miles. Refreshing the car as we speak. I’ll only jump ship for a substantially better car at a better value, which doesn’t exist right now.

    Ford Performance Street Handling pack experience

    That would be news to me; welcomed news for sure.

    B6s — they are designed for OEM spring rates (and can handle more). I’m not tracking other series available yet for the S550 outside of the full B16 suspension kit. If B8s ever come out, I would recommend these for lower ride height and higher spring rate cars.

    Ford Performance Street Handling pack experience

    Ford hasn’t released data that I know of, so it’s all guess work. The video I posted earlier has the Ford engineer who designed the X-spring state (paraphrasing), “they are slightly stiffer than OEM PP springs.” I think it’s safe to assume the Y springs fall in a similar scenario; just over...

    Y springs are similar in rates to OEM GT350 (non-R) springs, while X springs are similar in rates to OEM PP springs. In your case, I wouldn’t jump ship from your street-pack dampers; give them some miles, then upgrade dampers when due. When it’s time, I would pair Bilsteins with the X springs...

    Ford Track Handling Package awful?

    The Ford Performance Track Kit is very good for those who want a bit more of an aggressive street setup. High performance summer tires driven in a New Jersey winter is likely the main cause. Also, go to a trusted alignment center and ensure you have 0.00 to 0.05 toe-in on each front wheel...

    Lowering Spring Install Cost Estimate

    Steeda is in your neighborhood — it would be wise to include them in your market research. Here’s the forum contacts: @SteedaTech @[email protected]

    Ford Performance Street Handling pack experience

    My gripe with the OEM PP dampers is a lack of longevity and balance. My PP monotube shocks leaked badly at about 8k miles. The (subjective) balance in turns was never quite right...it was floaty as well. The PP spring rates, as well as the FP X Street Springs, are at an excellent rate and...

    100% yes, changing your OEM PP dampers to Bilsteins, FRPP Track dampers, or the like will pay big dividends. Going to the X-Spring when swapping dampers saves on labor — a 1” drop and no risk of a butchered ride quality makes them a safe choice.

    True, the only difference is the lowered ride height and a very slight increase in spring rate with the X-springs. The street pack has the same terrible OEM PP dampers, which nobody should invest in.

    Ford Performance Street Handling pack experience

    Get the street springs, but pair with Bilsteins. Excellent combo for a street car. FP Street and Track springs are indeed linear. The fronts are purely linear, the rears have a helper portion tied to the active linear portion. Here’s the Ford engineer who designed these springs (go to 2min):

    Twister Orange Mach 1 in Australia

    Looks amazing! REALLY liking the hood. Of course I’m a bit biased...the ‘69 Mach I is the car that got me “into cars” way back when.

    Steeda Progressive Lowering Springs and Choosing Correct Staggered Tire Sizes

    You’ll be fine with the 285/295 35 19 Steeda Progressive combination, and the 285 PS4S on a 10” wheel is perfect (I have 275s on a 10” and they are a touch too stretched imo). Alignment: 0.00 to 0.05 toe-in per front wheel Choose your own front camber with MM plates, but staying at, or just...

    SPRING RATES & DROPS: ALL IN ONE THREAD!!

    Y springs are rumored to be in-line with OEM GT350 (non-R) springs, or about 195F/915R.

    S650 mule spotted..........with all wheel drive?

    I’ll be first in line for an AWD 8 cylinder Mustang...so long as there is a manual option. Very excited to see the S650!

    Euro Tail Lights on Black ‘16 PP GT

    I was always a bit envious seeing clear tails on S550s when living in Europe...I decided to bring the clean look to my US spec: Overall, super easy install (30min) with a big visual impact. Sequential function retained and D.O.T. legal. If you like the look, I highly recommend, - Mike
