Paul's S550 GT Mustang
Steeda UK are launching a new series of feature cars on our "Speed Matters" blog to show the great work some of our customers and distributors are doing with their fast Ford's to inspire you and to share their fantastic cars. If you believe your car can show "the Steeda Difference" get in touch, and maybe your car can feature too.
First up is one of our Ford Fair 2017 show cars, Paul's GT S550 Mustang.
Paul concentrated on getting his car to look the way he imagined it and his journey is nearing completion looks-wise. Of course he certainly hasn't ignored performance either, but even there the first things done were those that added to the sound and appearance at the same time, such as the engine bay upgrades featuring Steeda ProFlow Intake and Strut Tower Brace, and fabulous quad titanium tipped Milltek exhaust, both improving sounds, looks and performance. Win, win, win!
To optimise all those hardware modifications he added a Steeda "Tunes for Life" tune as well via an SCT X4 handset.
The amazing stance on Pauls car is achieved with some Eibach lowering springs and a gorgeous set of Velgen VMB5s in 19" which sit perfectly and allowed Paul to continue using his OEM tyres for now too.
Now that the car is looking killer Paul is looking to tweak the ride a bit and next on the list is the Steeda IRS base pack.
