Announcing The Steeda QS6

Mustang V6 Aficionados: Steeda Autosports Announces Immediate Availability of the Steeda QS6 and a full line of Mustang V6 Performance Parts.

Following the highly successful debut of the Steeda Autosports 2008 Steeda V6 Mustang Performance Prototype at the 2007 SEMA Show in Las Vegas, Steeda Autosports is announcing the immediate availability of the Steeda QS6 Mustang and a full line of performance parts and accessories for the V6 powered Ford Mustang.

The Steeda QS6 Mustang is best described by deciphering its nomenclature in detail:

“Q” – Quick
“S” – Supercharged
“6” – V6 Powered

What performance orientated V6 Mustang provides for nimble handling attributable to it’s near perfect 50/50 weight distribution, has the famed Steeda Autosports performance suspension and powertrain upgrades that have been performance tuned for the Mustang V6 platform?  The Steeda QS6.

The secret to it’s outstanding success is it’s positive displacement Roots-type supercharger provides much more power at lower speeds than what the competitor’s centrifugal superchargers can deliver, resulting in a lightweight pony that can really deliver the excitement.  With a total of 355 horsepower and 365 ft. lbs. of torque available at your command, there is ample power available to blast out of the corners as others are waiting for their supercharges to build boost with engine speed.

Features of the 2008 Steeda QS6 Mustang include:

Still wanting more power?  Then bolt on a the Steeda approved supercharger system to really wake up your ride with 355 horsepower and 365 ft. lbs. of torque and have the best of both worlds: fuel economy when you want it, and all out performance when you need it!  How does it do it?  Simply – This supercharger system makes 70% of its boost at only 1800 RPM. The result is excellent low to mid range power and throttle response with a strong top end. Performance is outstanding – and throttle response is fantastic.  The efficient by-pass system allows no-boost cruising, and the supercharger needs only 3 horsepower to drive it while the by-pass valve is open. Fuel economy is similar to stock. Plus these superchargers are very quiet and require no maintenance for 100,000 miles.

Bottom line: You can add our track tested parts and accessories to your car and see the difference over all of our competitors.   You can build the car you want, according to your schedule and budget, and get the results you have come to expect from Steeda: World class performance and value engineered in the USA for the Ford performance enthusiast.

Steeda Autosports 2007 Racing Recap

As the 2007 Racing Season draws to a close, it goes without saying that this year has been another highly successful season for those that ride with Steeda Autosports.  Once again, Steeda equipped vehicles have set more track records, won more races, and won more championships than all of our competitors (Shelby, Roush, and Saleen) combined!   The road racing courses and drag strips continue to be the ultimate proving grounds for our products and vehicles with one specific purpose in mind:  To design, engineer, manufacturer, and distribute the BEST performance products possible for the Ford performance enthusiast.

To highlight just one of our many race victories that exemplify our success this season, we are going to highlight a race series that occurred during the weekend of November 17th and 18th at the South Atlantic Road Race of Champions at the Moroso Motorsports Park in Palm Beach County Florida – the “super bowl” of competition where all of the class leaders and top competitors race against each other:


On Saturday, the Steeda Team took their Steeda prepared Focus to the two hour enduro championship.  Qualifying 1st in class and an amazing 3rd overall the stoutly prepared Steeda Focus piloted by Dario Orlando and Glen Vitale beat all class competitors and even out ran Porsche 911s and BMWs on it’s way to another 1st place class finish.  On Sunday the winning steak continued when Dario Orlando, running in 2nd place with three laps to go, out-braked and out-handled the 1st place car into a turn and easily captured the lead and captured yet another 1st place class victory for the Steeda Team.

Not to be outdone, Tom Ellis raced to another amazing set of victory’s in American Sedan when his Steeda prepared SN95 Mustang not only set a new class track record of 1:39.446 around the challenging Moroso road course, but also captured two 1st place podium finishes: one on Saturday and another on Sunday.Congratulations Tom on a highly successful year!

The 8th Annual Stampede Event – The Best One Yet!

The 8th annual Steeda Stampede Event was, without a doubt, the best one yet as over 500 Ford performance vehicles converged at Steeda Autosports Pompano Beach Headquarters filling the entire Steeda campus to capacity. In addition to the vast array of Steeda Mustangs, F150s, and Focus vehicles, there were plenty of Steeda modified SVT Mustangs, Lightning and Contours, and also a collection of Steeda modified Saleen, Shelby and Roush Mustangs to round out an excellent representation of American Horsepower!

Performance enthusiasts started to arrive early Saturday from over twelve states…all to see for themselves what the Steeda Stampede is all about. The South Florida car club – Southfloridastangs.com came early and had an outstanding representation of their performance vehicles.

Once the cars were parked and the ensuing show was well underway, Steeda President, Dario Orlando led a series of campus tours including a special presentation of the new Steeda exclusive stay-bar machine which can fabricate a stay-bar with the utmost precision in the time it took you to read this paragraph! Visitors were also able to view the multi-million dollar manufacturing machinery in action, where bars of billet aluminum are magically transformed into the precision artwork – the various Steeda parts we all have come to appreciate. With “Made in the USA“ quality that Steeda is internationally noted for, the tours visually proved how the vast collection of performance parts and accessories are made under exacting conditions.

Also on display in a discrete – yet visible location for Stampede attendees was a future production Mustang that Steeda will be announcing later. With special features, both under the hood and outside the car that you have come to expect, this Mustang will surely grab your attention when we formally pull the wraps off of it for all to see.

With a building projected to be larger than the ENTIRE existing Steeda five building campus, the Valdosta Project is certain to be the best and most productive automotive aftermarket campus which will result in ongoing benefits for Steeda customers in the future.

In addition, Bob also provided an in depth look at the Steeda Certified GT500 that has been receiving rave reviews by the auto critics and has also been filling the Steeda Modification Center as owners of the stock production GT500s are wanting more performance at a very reasonable price.

The event also included a raffle featuring products from Steeda Autosports and a host of our performance partners including Nitto Tire, 3D Carbon, Tremec Transmissions, Powerslot Rotors, Royal Purple, Hawk Brake Pads, Nitrous Express, Comp Cams, Fluidyne, MSD Ignition, Tokico, Auburn Gear, Designer Mat, Hyperco, EBC Brakes, RAM Clutches, CAM Products, nr Gauges & Speed of Sound.

After the give-a-way, Dario Orlando, President of Steeda Autosports provided a glimpse of some additional future Steeda plans….plans to secret for us to include in this announcement – you had to be there to hear for yourself! Dario received a standing ovation from everyone in attendance, when he proudly announced to the crowd, that unlike some competing companies who have “broken ranks” and are now doing work for General Motors, Chrysler LLC, and even Toyota, he pledged that Steeda Autosports will only support Ford performance vehicles – just like they have proudly done exclusively for the past twenty years. He also added, that Steeda will maintain their current competitive engineering and manufacturing advantage in the marketplace and that when the Pony Wars heat up when the Camaro and Challenger are being introduced, that a Steeda Mustang will certainly be leading the charge for the Blue Oval.

A fter a short trip up Florida’s Turnpike to the Moroso Motorsports Park, Stampede enthusiasts were able to enjoy the Ford Power Festival. This annual event featured a car show where the owners of Steeda vehicles had the opportunity to have their car judged for a variety of special awards.

Steeda – Where SPEED MATTERS!

Steeda Mustangs Win More Championships!

The Burnett Racing Team scored yet another championship for Steeda Autosports!

The ace of the track – Robin Burnet – had another dream season in 2007 in his Steeda prepared Mustang. For the third year in a row, his beautiful red Steeda Mustang won the NASA Ohio-Indy American Iron Regional Championship leaving everyone in his dust.


In the 10 race hotly contested series, Robin showed everyone that he has the right car and the right equipment to win – and win BIG!  With 6 wins, 4 second place finishes and 5 pole positions in the series, there was little doubt that his Steeda Mustang was the only one to beat this season.  When the final checkered flag dropped, Robin placed his Steeda Mustang on the podium at “NASA Nationals” championship held at the legendary Mid-Ohio sports car course and ended all speculation about who was going to win the series.

What about the others? One thing for certain, they were not driving a Steeda Mustang!

Join us in congratulating Robin, his fantastic crew members, and the great team at Steeda Autosports for clinching another championship and proving that when you drive with Steeda – you are driving with a winner!

Tom Ellis is a natural born winner – especially when he is driving his Steeda prepared Mustang on the racetrack,  In SCCA American Sedan Racing this season, Tom Ellis COMPLETELY DOMINATED his class this season – having the hottest shoe in the highly competitive Southeast Region.


For the third consecutive year, Tom has piloted his Steeda Mustang to the American Sedan South East Region National Championship winning an unbelievable 6 out of 7 races, and finishing a very close second in one race.

In addition to winning almost every race he entered, Tom and his Steeda prepared Mustang set two new American Sedan track records – one at the famed Daytona International Speedway and the second at the very challenging Road Atlanta race course.

It just goes to show you that when you drive a Steeda Mustang, on the race track or on the street you had better have a good set of rear view mirrors because that is where the competition will be!

UPDATE – Steeda Autosports Corporate Expansion

The test track will have a variety of road surfaces to aid in the development and prove out process for future Steeda vehicles and parts in terms of performance, noise, vibration and harshness.
