AVO_S6Z12G1GS021J

The new FRS/BRZ comes with a very good suspension setup straight from the factory, but as it was designed for the fairly skinny OEM rubber, it starts to fall behind quickly once better tires are fitted to the car. AVO designed this front 21mm sway bar to work with either their 18mm (track) or 21mm (Drift) rear bar to create an ideal handling setup depending on your needs.

It features two settings to help dial in your driving preferences and set up the correct link angle depending on your ride height, and has integrated stoppers built in to keep the bar from shifting to the right or left over time.

K&N Press Release – 2015 Ford Mustang Ecoboost Owners Looking For a Boost Can Do So with a K&N Air Intake

June 26th, 2015 by Ernest Lo

K&N_63-2589

Not since the Fox Body Ford Mustang SVO has Ford offered a turbocharged inline-four cylinder engine in its legendary Pony Car. Contrary to most auto makers’ engine line ups, due to an increase in horsepower, torque, and fuel economy, the 2015 Ford Mustang 2.3L EcoBoost four cylinder engine is an upgrade over the standard 300 horsepower V6. Ford engineers managed to squeeze an impressive 310 horsepower and 320 lb-ft of torque from the 2.3L EcoBoost engine while also earning an EPA estimated 31 highway MPG for the 2015 Ford Mustang. Despite the already impressive power numbers of the 2015 Ford Mustang EcoBoost, owners searching for an extra boost in horsepower, torque, and acceleration can easily do so with the installation of a K&N Aircharger air intake system 63-2589.

Typically, the factory air intake tubing, stock air filter box, and disposable air filter is a significant point of restriction in modern fuel injected cars or trucks, especially those with turbochargers. Because of this fact, K&N has developed an Aircharger air intake system for the 2015 Ford Mustang 2.3L Ecoboost to eliminate restrictive factory components by replacing them with a roto-molded HDPE air intake tube coupled to an open element K&N reusable air filter for superior airflow and superior performance. Additionally, the K&N reusable air filter RC-2960 included with the 2015 Ford Mustang 2.3L EcoBoost intake is protected by an application specific air filter heat shield to help keep inlet air temperatures (IAT) within factory tolerances.

The K&N 2015 Ford Mustang 2.3L Ecoboost air intake system 63-2589 is an easy to install performance upgrade that can be completed in about 90 minutes or less using basic hand tools, and by following K&N’s simple step-by-step instructions. It maintains all necessary factory connections and does not require any additional modifications be made to the vehicle for increased performance. In fact, when installed on an otherwise stock 2015 Ford Mustang 2.3L Ecoboost, K&N air intake 63-2589 was shown to make impressive performance gains in horsepower and torque throughout the entire RPM range. On the dyno, K&N observed an estimated peak horsepower gain of 15.72 HP at a very usable 4224 rpm. Even more impressive was the estimated additional 19.85 pound-feet of torque at a low 3,778 rpm. Increased power will require the engine to expend less energy to cruise down the highway, improve acceleration, and allow the Ecoboost engine’s turbocharger to spool up faster.

K&N backs its air filters and air intake systems with a 10-year/million mile limited warranty so owners can rest assured that their intake system can stand up to the most demanding drivers. Whether 2015 Ford Mustang Ecoboost owners use their pony car as a fun to drive, fuel efficient daily driver, or for taking on V8 powered cars on the track, the K&N 63-2589 Aircharger Air Intake system will provide increased performance with better engine sound for years to come.

Performance air intake system 63-2589 is guaranteed to increase horsepower and torque on the 2015 Ford Mustang 2.3L EcoBoost Model.

AEM Press Release – AEM Air Intake Gives Street Legal Horsepower Boost to 2011-2014 Ford Mustang 3.7L V6

June 24th, 2015 by Ernest Lo

AEM_22-686C

In an effort to improve horsepower and meet the needs of AEM cold air intake fans nationwide, AEM offers two performance air intake systems for 2011, 2012, 2013, and 2014 Ford Mustang 3.7L V6 models. AEM 2011-2014 Ford Mustang V6 air intake, number 22-686C, differs from the alternate AEM cold air intake system available for 2011-2014 3.7L models because AEM designers retained the use of the stock air filter box. Designing AEM cold air intake 22-686C around the stock air filter box allowed AEM Intake designers to retain all factory connections, including stock emissions control equipment, to create a 50-state street legal air intake system. Installation of the AEM 2011-2014 Ford Mustang V6 3.7L 50-state street legal air intake is incredibly easy compared to the alternate AEM cold air intake and only requires minimal tools with reduced installation times.

The maze of accordion like intake tubing, and noise baffling installed at the factory adds a significant source of restriction to stock 2011-2014 Ford Mustang 3.7L V6 models. Included in the AEM 50-state legal air intake system for 2011, 2012, 2013, and 2014 Ford Mustang V6 3.7L models is a free-flowing mandrel-bent aluminum intake tube. This new aluminum AEM air intake tube is designed to overcome the restriction found in the stock air ducting. Restriction isn’t the only trouble with the stock air intake as it also creates turbulence in the incoming air. The mandrel-bent aluminum intake tube used in 22-686C has a smooth and consistent internal surface for reduced airflow turbulence. Reducing restriction and straightening airflow allows the Fifth Gen Ford Mustang V6 engine to work more efficiently. To complement the under hood appearance of the 2011-2014 Ford Mustang 3.7L V6 the intake tube is protected with a durable charcoal gray powder coat finish that will look great for years to come. An added benefit of the AEM mandrel-bent aluminum intake tube is that it will eliminate the stock intake noise baffling system. This will give 2011-2014 Ford Mustang V6 models a more aggressive engine sound.

In-house dyno testing shows that the AEM 2011, 2012, 2013, and 2014 Ford Mustang 3.7L V6 50-state street legal air intake system produced a surprising estimated 6 horsepower and 7 lb-ft of torque maximum increase at the rear wheels of an otherwise stock 2012 Ford Mustang 3.7L with manual transmission. By simply reducing restriction, and improving airflow the AEM performance 2011-2014 Ford Mustang V6 50-state street legal air intake system is able to improve horsepower and torque delivery across the RPM range. Making usable horsepower increases in common RPM ranges is a design goal at AEM as this yields a performance upgrade that can be used even during normal driving situations.

AEM Dryflow air filters are performance designed to reduce restriction over typical paper air filters. The AEM 2011-2014 Ford Mustang V6 3.7L 50-state street legal air intake system includes AEM Dryflow replacement air filter, number 28-20431. Using an AEM Dryflow replacement air filter helps to reduce the restriction inherent to stock disposable paper air filters. AEM Dryflow air filters are built with a robust synthetic air filter media designed to help increase airflow, and provide outstanding engine protection without the need for air filter oil. AEM Dryflow replacement air filters are washable and reusable and can go up to 50,000 miles between cleanings under normal highway driving conditions. When it’s time to clean the air filter, it can be easily completed using the AEM air filter cleaner 1-1000. Cleaning is performed by following a simple four step process. Because an AEM dry filter does not require oil, the air filter can be returned to service sooner and with less effort.

The AEM cold air intake system 22-686C is an incredibly fast and easy upgrade for 2011, 2012, 2013, and 2014 Ford Mustang 3.7-liter V6 models. By retaining the stock air filter box, installation of AEM cold air intake 22-686C can be completed with minimal tools and less time than the alternate AEM air intake system for 2011-2014 Ford Mustang 3.7L V6 models. Simple to follow step by step instructions are included and there is no need to make any other modifications to your Ford Mustang V6 for increased performance. AEM cold air intake 22-686C is street legal in all 50 states for 2011-2014 Ford Mustang 3.7L V6 models making this Mustang performance upgrade available everywhere. AEM is so confident in its products that AEM backs its Dryflow Air Filters and Cold Air Intake Systems with a lifetime limited warranty.
