Both the 2011 to 2014 Mustang GT and V6 are impressive cars straight off the showroom floor, but to really make them stand out, you'll need to grab a few Mustang performance parts and accessories from your friends right here at Stage 3 Motorsports. We carry a massive arsenal of 5.0L V8 aftermarket parts and accessories that add power, improve handling, add a ferocious sound, and give your aggressive Pony a whole new look.
What Mustang parts should I get first?
Depending on what you want to do with your new ride, we here at Stage 3 Motorsports generally recommend starting off with a 2011 to 2014 Mustang cold air intake (CAI) of some sort. Your average bolt-on CAI systems can get your Mustang another 10 to 15 horsepower, depending on its design.
If you want even more power, then take a look at our variety of Mustang 5.0L & 3.7L Performance Packages that include a CAI and handheld tuner that, when used together, can get you even more horsepower by tuning your PCM.
What's PCM Tuning?
Unlike old days before fuel injection when you could actually complete most adjustments to your engine by hand, nowadays fuel curves, timing, and many other essential engine functions are controlled by your Mustang's Powertrain Control Module (PCM). By using a 2011 to 2014 Mustang Programmer of some sort, your Pony's computer files can by altered (flashed) to pull some extra power out of your Mustang's engine without adding any additional hard parts at all. We here at Stage 3 even offer custom Mustang tuning so that if you've added any extra high-powered Mustang performance parts we can relay that information to your PCM, adjusting calibrations to make them work together properly and keep your engine running safe and at its best.
What are some other easy bolt-on parts?
2011 to 2014 Mustang GT axle-back exhaust systems; cat-back systems; wheel and tire packages; 2011 to 2014 Mustang GT & V6 Throttle bodies; and If you want to use the term "bolt-on" more loosely, then a 2011+ 5.0L Mustang complete supercharger kit is a fantastic way to get tremendous power.
Will any of those parts void my warranty?
It really depends on how strictly your dealership follows Ford's Warranty Guidelines. In general, a dealership does not have to warranty repairs that it thinks were caused by a given aftermarket part. It's best to talk to your dealership or service representative to see how lenient they are with performance parts. Sadly, any type of PCM tuning will instantly void your Ford Powertrain warranty which is unfortunate.
I just want a ton of horsepower. How much can my Mustang take?
Many people will tell you that the 5.0L Coyote on the 2011 to 2014 Mustang GT is bulletproof and can handle just about whatever you throw at it. While we hesitate to call them liars, we recommend going with fully forged pistons and rods when you start nearing the 625 horsepower range. For the 3.7L V6, going to a forged setup is recommended above 475 horsepower. Now, those are just the motors. Many other components of your Mustang GT or V6 may need to be changed or upgraded long before reaching those levels of horsepower. Contact us directly for more information.
