Ah, the Fox Bodies. We here at Stage 3 Motorsports are sworn to love all the iterations of Ford's Mustang, and we shower all of our customers still rocking around in that lightweight, 5.0L Windsor powered frame. We have loads of high-performance modifications for Ford's third generation cars that not only keeps them running, but can potentially help you blow the pants off the newest 5.0L Coyotes (unless you dropped one into your Foxy).
We have cold air intakes, throttle bodies, stroker kits and even superchargers that push your Fox to its absolute performance limits.
Where should I start?
That really depends on the direction you intend to go with your Mustang. If this is just a basic restoration job with a little something extra, then check our Foxbody cold air intakes, 1987-1993 Mustang throttle bodies, 1979-1993 Mustang headers, Foxbody lowering springs, and uprated Foxbody Mustang engine cooling parts. If you're turning your Foxbody into a real project, then you should check out our selection of nitrous systems, full Foxbody suspension kits, and 1979-1993 Mustang supercharger systems.
My exhaust system is shot. What can you do for me?
If you're only looking for sound gains, then we have a good selection of 1979-1993 Mustang cat-back exhaust kits for both LX and GT models. Cat-backs replace everything aft of your Mustang's catalytic converters, including your mufflers, kickover tubes, and exhaust tips. Cat-backs are an easy and inexpensive way to get a great sound. If you to go louder or get more power, then check out our selection of Foxbody long tube headers and matching Foxbody mid-pipes.
I need to improve the handling on this thing before it kills me.
Our Foxbody suspension section is right over here. If you're looking to dramatically overhaul your Fox Body's handling, then you should take a look at our complete 1979-1993 Mustang suspension kits, especially our Eibach Pro-System Plus kit that comes with lowering springs, shocks and struts, and sway bars.
What's a stroker kit?
A stroker kit is a new rotating assembly for your engine. They consist of a new crankshaft, pistons, and connecting rods. Stroker kits can be used to increase your engine's displacement through the use of a longer stroke. A larger displacement gives you the potential for more power, but you have to make sure to choose the right kit for your application.
Do I need tuning for certain parts?
Unlike newer Mustangs (1996+), Fox Bodies don't have an OBD-II port and can't have their computers flashed with new program files. Performance chips are available, but the easiest way to get some more power from your 1987 to 1993 Mustang is with a new 1987-1993 Mustang Mass Air Meter. Aftermarket MAF units are preprogrammed for a certain intake system and fuel injector size and effectively "trick" your Pony's computer into adjusting its fuel curves.
I don't think my clutch has been replaced since it left the factory...
Yeesh... The good news is that we here at Stage 3 have performance clutches and flywheels for 1979-1993 Mustangs for your Fox, including powerful McLeod Twin-Disc kits that can handle up to 800 horsepower.
My seats are in bad shape. Can you help?
We have a full lineup of Mustang Corbeau seats for both the front and year of the Fox Body Mustangs, not to mention their proper brackets and belts. We do caution that some of the larger and "wide" versions of Corbeau's seats may not fit properly into your 1979 to 1993 Mustang. Contact us for details.
What are some good styling modifications?
Hoods. Without a doubt hoods. A new aftermarket Foxbody hood really makes these Mustangs pop and can completely revitalize its looks in one fell swoop.
