Power and Savings

Most of the time, you can't use the words horsepower and savings in the same sentence. However, these PRW Sportsman Roller Tip rockers arms come with a $5 pre-paid gift card. (Hey, that's enough for a whole meal off the dollar menu.) The rocker arms are made from 4340 chrome-moly, which is designed to reduce flex and provide more accurate valve motion, as well as extend service life. The roller tip reduces friction in the valvetrain and can help free up to 15 additional horsepower. The rockers feature heat-treated pivot balls and PRW's Rockerloc poly locks.

Mount Up

This is Prothane's new and improved transmission crossmember kit for '99-'04 Mustangs. This new kit is designed specifically to make the installation simple. No fabrication is needed to complete the conversion, as this kit is precision-fit to bolt right on. The fully adjustable feature allows for OEM tolerances, while Prothane's “interlocked” urethane 6-1605 trans mount is designed to absorb vibration and shock. The crossmember kit is made from heavy gauge, gold-anodized steel.

Cali Wax

Whether you live in California, Florida, or Wisconsin, environmental contaminants, harmful UV rays, dreaded bird droppings, and the like conspire against your Mustang's finish. Mothers' California Gold Synthetic Paste Wax can bring it back. The ultra-fine polishes bring out your Mustang's gloss, while specially formulated micro-encapsulation polymers form a chemical bond to preserve and protect the shine.
