2015 Mustang GT 5.0L Build
Stage 3 Motorsports 2015 Mustang 5.0LIts been a while since we jumped into another Mustang build, but we decided the time was right and we committed to a Race Red 2015 5.0L GT! We're going to be throwing a few exterior mods, some new suspension and upgraded lighting at this car to really clean up the look and the stance. Read below for all the details!
We're big fans of the body lines and overall look of the 2015-2017 Mustangs, but as with most stock vehicles there's still room for improvement. The stance of our GT is a little too tall and the front end doen't do much to separate our GT from the rest of the Mustangs on the road so we got down to business and dropped in a new ISC coilover kit, Cervini's grilles and Morimoto LED headlights!
ISC Adjustable Coilover Suspension System
Lowering springs are a common way to reduce ride height, but on this mustang we wanted something that would not only lower the car but also dial in the handling and create a more planted feel. ISC's Street Coilover kit turned out to be the perfect system to get the look and feel we wanted. This high-quality kit includes front and rear monotube, ride height adjustable coilovers that reduce squat, virtually eliminate bodyroll, and include spanner wrenches for easy height adjustment. 15-17 Mustang ISC Adjustable Coilover Suspension
Cervini's C-Series Upper and Lower Grilles
Even with just a quick glance you can tell that these Cervini's grilles create a more aggressive and unique look for the front of our GT. The kit removes the pony emblem and uses a black mesh attached to ultra-durable polyurethane to create a track inspired appearance that will hold up to years and years of use. 15-17 Mustang Cervini's C-Series Upper & Lower Grille Kit
Morimoto XB LED Headlights
We wanted to change up the lighting on the front of our Mustang to further enhance the look and thankfully Morimoto had the perfect upgrade for us. Their XB headlights feature Osram 5000k LEDs, a blacked out bezel and a very sleek looking c-bar design around the projector that makes an excellent running light. Pairing these headlights with the new grille setup gave our Mustang's face a much more aggressive appearance without compromising any driveability. 15-17 Mustang Morimoto XB LED Headlights
MagnaFlow 3" Axle-Back Exhaust
The 5.0L V8 is capable of making a beautiful exhaust note and it's a shame to hide that behind a quiet factory exhaust. We outfitted our GT with a Magnaflow axle back system to let some of that glorious sound shine through without causing massive amounts of drone or making the car annoying to drive. 15-17 Mustang GT 5.0L MagnaFlow 3" Axle-Back Exhaust
Vortech Black SI-Trim V3 Supercharger Kit
Perhaps the biggest modification to this Mustang that really sets it apart from your run of the mill GT is the insanely powerful Vortech supercharger under the hood! The V3 provides an amazing amount of additional power and at the same time reduces the detonation threshold. When you put your foot down in this car you better hang on tight. 15-17 Mustang GT Vortech Black SI-Trim V3 Supercharger Kit
