Performance Talk With Steeda Autosports
We learn all about the latest performance parts for S550 Mustangs from the man himself, Dario Orlando
We’ve known Dario Orlando for closing in on thirty years. Matter of fact, we’ve bought parts from Steeda for our own Fox Mustang before we got behind the keyboard and started writing about Mustangs for a living. Throughout the years one thing has remained the same, the engineers at Steeda have always strived to build the best solution available with quality parts. With a close relationship with Ford Motor Company, the folks at Steeda can quickly work out an upgrade solution where one is warranted. If the stock part is really that good, Steeda won’t make a replacement part just to sell you something you don’t need.
On a recent trip through south Florida we took the time to stop by Steeda Autosports and see what was going on. We were lucky to find Dario in the office that day (he splits his time between Steeda’s Pompano, Florida location and its manufacturing facility in Valdosta, Georgia) and asked him if we could pick his brain about their S550 Mustang parts program. With both a naturally aspirated driver and supercharged street/track car at our disposal, we set up our gear and proceeded to get the details on everything S550 and what we can expect from Steeda in the near future.
