Fox 5.0L Underdrives
Underdrive pulleys have long been used to extract a few more horsepower from the 5.0-liter engines in '87-'93 Mustangs. Latemodel Restoration now offers a new SVE underdrive pulley and belt kit for Fox-bodies with lighter, resized pulleys that will provide a noticeable increase in power. With an included Goodyear Gatorback belt, you won't have to search for the correct sized belt. Info: 866/507-3786; www.latemodelrestoration.com

Knowing that '11-'14 Mustang GT owners are never satisfied with stock, Airaid has released a new MXP-Series Carbon Fiber Intake System that offers both additional horsepower and stylish looks. The Airaid system starts with a real carbon-fiber, 4.25-inch diameter intake tube that allows for unrestricted airflow and incorporates a special billet plate that accepts the factory MAF sensor. The intake tube connects to Airaid's new one-piece, roto-molded cold-air box that is designed to keep hot engine compartment air away from the 1,300-cfm air filter, which is washable and reusable. Airaid says the system is dyno-proven to produce an additional 11 horsepower and 11 lb-ft of torque. Info: 888/876-8984; www.airaid.com.
