Does the 18-21 Ford Performance Power Pack work for the 2022 Mustang GT. LMR has it listed that way, but nowhere else that I see.

I would assume it does. A Gen3 coyote is a Gen 3 coyote despite any minor model year revisions.

I think I remember that it did NOT work with the 2022. There is a thread here on it somewhere.

Based on what though? I’m aware of the power decrease for 2022 models but I assumed it was due to emissions/ tuning, not an actual difference in hardware.

I'll see if I can find the thread, but if I remember correctly, it's related to the HP drop and emissions, so the official Ford tune for 2022 is not supported.

I'm kinda disappointed as well as I have a 2022.

The only one that I’d trust the word of is Ford Performance themselves. You need to provide them with the VIN before they will release the tune.

I would buy one but they won’t give you a tune for a non-US VIN number. I’d love to know a work around for it but I don’t think there is.

Pretty sure Ford Performance said they're not updating the tune for '22 and the different catalysts.

I spoke with FP today. The official word is 18-21 Power Pack will not work for a 2022, as advertised by LMR. The other official word is there is no official decision yet as to whether or not a Power Pack will become available for the 2022. At first it was leaning toward yes, then leaning toward no, and now somewhere in the area of 50/50.

I have to imagine it'll depend on how many S550s they sell before cutting over to the next gen

I’d guess any new EPA rules would also be a factor.

The man on the phone thought it was dependent on how much the power gain would be.

From what I read it actually is part hardware.

" hydrocarbon traps were modified, with a new mass airflow sensor location and updated engine calibration "

The cats are more restictive…that is straight from Karl who used to be the Mustang program manager. I believe the tune may be more aggressive to compensate for power loss. I have a 2022 GT and it feels very strong compared to other gen 3’s I’ve had.

Tom, just want to make sure I’m interpreting your post right. You’re saying that in spite of the 10 hp drop in ‘22 yours still feels as strong as (or stronger than) other 18-21s you’ve had? I’m having a hard time comparing since my ‘20 is an A10/3.15 convertible and my new ‘22 is a 6MT/3.55 coupe.

Based on what Karl told you if the cats somehow got changed out or fell off, I wonder if you’d have to retune?

My 2022 Mustang GT 401A base wheels feels like a beast. It is a non PP car, with the 18“ base wheels. I have had maybe 10 of these S550 cars and they always felt rather slow to me, especially the bone stock GT’s. Karl told me the cats are more restrictive. I’m sure you could delete the cats but you would have to add a custom tune. My 2022 GT is a manual, 3.55 car. It just feels much more responsive, eager to run than my other stock GT‘s I’ve had. I have been trying to find out if maybe the MT82 gear ratios were changed for 2022, but so far I have no info on that. I was on the highway yesterday day doing high 70’s in 6th at about 22/2300 rpm which seemed higher than I remember.
