’05-’11 Mustang Performance Parts Buyer’s Guide
Making the new Mustang even better with great new products from the aftermarket
The Proxes 1 is Toyo Tires’ new flagship, maximum performance tire designed for the world’s finest high-performance cars, including Mustang GTs and Shelbys. Available in 18- and 19-inch rim diameters with widths ranging from 235 to 305 mm, the Proxes 1 tires were designed with Toyo’s new TruForm technology to deliver better uniformity and improved handling. The Silent Wall in the tread decreases noise while computer simulation applied in development optimizes Proxes 1 for varying road surfaces. Additional benefits include improved directional stability in straight-away driving and resistance to hydroplaning.
Grant Products now offers good-looking, custom airbag steering wheels with sport grips for ’05-’11 Mustangs. Available in red, gray, or black appointments, the Grant Airbag Solutions steering wheels feel good in your hands and provide extraordinary control for performance driving. Grant offers a buy-back core program for purchasers.
Classic Design Concepts has released a new stainless steel Dead Pedal for the ’10 Mustang. Built to precise O.E. specifications for excellent fit and finish, the CDC pedal is made from heavy gauge, brushed stainless steel for both styling and comfort. It provides a positive placement for the driver’s left foot when not using the clutch during long drives and is especially useful for performance driving. It also compliments the factory pedals and protects the carpeted areas beneath.
Owners of ’11 Mustang GTs can put a little “road race” into their street cars with Ford Racing’s Handling Pack. Available for both coupes (M-FR3-MGTA) and convertibles (M-FR3-MCGTA), the kit includes performance dampers, lowering springs (for a 1-inch drop), sway bars, strut tower brace, front strut mount upgrade, and jounce bumpers. Adjustable dampers and springs for a 1½-inch drop are available separately.
Super Snake Knob
The Shelby Super Snake Stripe Shift Knob from Shelby Performance Parts fits GT500 six-speed shifters. Made from white resin, the knob features the black stripe pattern from the Shelby GT500 Super Snake and has “Shelby” written on each side in black.
UPR Products now offers a new look for ’05-’09 Mustang interiors with their Billet Stealth Interior Dress-Up Kit. The six-piece kit includes a billet shifter bezel, seat recliner handles, seat buttons, and cup holder bezel. All components go through a two-step process of mirror polished finish followed by black anodizing for the ultimate show quality finish.
The ZEX Blackout Nitrous System is engineered to work with the latest Mustang technology. Unlike a universal kit, every piece was designed specifically for street/strip and all-out race, stock or modified, ‘05-’10 Mustang GT applications. Installation won’t affect normal operation but rather gives power on demand with a patented electronic TPS switch at wide-open throttle, perfect for the Mustang’s throttle-by-wire system. Plug and play installation can be completed in as little as two hours, with power settings adjustable from 75-175 horsepower with the included tuning jets.

The kit comes with black powdercoated four-piston calipers emblazoned with yellow Saleen script, 14-inch slotted Aero rotors, performance brake pads, stainless steel braided lines, and all necessary mounting brackets and hardware for installation.
