Strange Shocks

Always improving using the latest technology, Strange Engineering's new aluminum coilover shocks make suspension tuning easy. They feature a conveniently located adjuster knob at the bottom of the shock body. The knob allows you to quickly and easily adjust the valving to work in concert with track conditions. This new design is available in both single- and double-adjustable configurations, and they can also be customized to specific lengths, strokes, and valving by Strange Engineering to suit your specific needs. Strange's S1413 spanner wrench makes spring adjustments as quick and easy as shock adjustments.

Insider Details

If you're like us, and drive your Mustang every day, you spend a lot of time in it. Meguiar's wants you to enjoy that time by having a clean interior in which to hang. The company's new Ultimate Interior Detailer cleans and protects all interior surfaces, quickly and easily. The detailer not only cleans existing dirty interiors, but it also provides a grease-free, protective barrier to prevent against new stains and UV damage. The resulting clean finish is designed to last for weeks and weeks. The product is safe to use on all interior surfaces, including navigation system screens. To use, simply spray on and wipe off. Even a magazine editor can do that.

Turbo Works

As Mustang and performance enthusiasts, we're in love with turbochargers, but sometimes we're not quite sure how to bring it all together. Stainless Works helps fill one piece of the puzzle with this new '79-'93 Fox Mustang small-block turbo header kit. Stainless Works' turbo headers feature a 3/8-inch-thick flange with 17/8-in primaries and 3-inch slip-fit collectors. The kit uses 3-inch V-band flanges and clamps are provided and welded on for the header-to-crossover connections. The kit is TIG-welded and back-purged for maximum performance. The kit includes the headers, a crossover tube, a turbo mounting bracket, aluminum motor plate, and a downpipe. No, the turbo isn't included, but nice try.

Cool Coyote

Normally when someone mentions Cervini's Auto Designs, we think of hoods and body styling upgrades. However, now the company is throwing its name into the cold-air intake game with this new system for '11-'14 Mustang GTs. This system can be a standalone cold-air intake, or turned into a ram air/cold-air intake when teamed with a Cervini's Ram Air hood. The new cold air features a 9-inch conical air filter and a variety of intake tube colors. A MAF-reducing insert allows for un-tuned applications, whereas it can be removed for tuned applications. In addition, Cervini's offers a custom tune for your Mustang via Paul's High Performance.
