The latest parts, components, and more for your Fast Ford
A DYAD Drive System (DS) multi-disc clutch by Centerforce, the next level in high-performance, is now available for Ford 4.6, 5.0, and 5.8-liter engines with 157-tooth flywheels. Designed to hold a torque capacity of 1,300 lb-ft at the flywheel, the DS clutch also offers a smooth engagement and light pedal effort. Each DS comes preassembled for easy installation.
Strange Engineering is proud to introduce C-clip–style axles to its popular Alloy Axle lineup. These axles are significantly stronger than factory axles. They are forged from alloy steel, and when combined with a deeper heat treatment that increases torsional strength, can reliably handle the power and torque of your '94-present Ford. Strange's new axles do not require any modification to the factory housings and will work with factory bearings, seals, and studs. Retail pricing starts at $249.50 for a pair.
Take your Ford project to the next level with one of Ford Racing Performance Parts' new 347, 363, or 427ci short-blocks. Each short-block is handbuilt by Ford Racing technicians using a Boss block, SCAT forged-steel crankshaft, forged I-beam connecting rods, and Mahle pistons. With the more difficult and time-consuming task of the short-block assembly complete, building a powerful small-block Ford is within the reach of any do-it-yourself enthusiast. Pricing starts at $4,889.
Light It Up
Get better performance using MSD Performance's new 5.0L Coyote Blaster coils. Designed with performance in mind, these coils feature improved windings and material to increase the output of the coil. According to MSD, its coils deliver 20- percent more spark than factory units, improve high-rpm operation, and are direct bolt-in pieces.
Kenny Brown's Extreme Matrix Kit represents the ultimate in under-car chassis support for all '79-'14 Mustangs, including SVT Cobras, Boss 302s, and Shelby GT500s. Its complete chassis-support system is designed to maximize strength at the center section of the car with no loss of ground clearance and minimal addition in weight, creating the most rigid subframe support system available for late-model Mustangs.
Mark Williams Enterprises has developed a one-piece, slip-joint driveshaft for '07-present GT500 Mustangs. The new M-W driveshafts are made from exceptionally strong aluminum alloy and are performance-tested in-house. Each driveshaft comes with heavy-duty U-joints and custom billet-aluminum flanges that mate to the factory companion flanges. Check out M-W's website for more information and pricing.
