In the early S197 Mustangs from 2005 to 2010, one of the defining features for these cars was the engine. When it was new, the 300 horsepower engine may not have even been the top in power but it made up for it in torque and reliability. These engines - paired with the classic body style - were great to drive and were responsive in a way that many cars at their price point weren’t. These engines could handle a lot of upgrades but primarily took advantage of their durable construction and the upgrades we developed worked every bit of power out of these engines reliably.
The 3-valve motor benefited well from upgrades such as new underdrive pulleys and many commonly upgraded engine components. Upgrades like performance pulleys, improved engine mounts, cams, and more, were easily able to bring dramatically more power out of these motors. These engines, when built with these performance parts, can hang with the best of the other performance cars of the era. With the wide range of products we carry for the engines of these cars, you can build your 3-valve Mustang to higher levels than ever before.
Here at Steeda, we have been working to upgrade the Mustang platform for over 35 years and during that time in our racing career, we learned exactly what must be done to make these cars’ engines perform better than ever before. We have run these engine upgrades on our cars both on the street and at the track and can personally vouch for the quality and performance of these upgrades. We know that you will enjoy these parts on your car for their added performance and their improved reliability and will help you add life to your driving experience daily.
