S197 Buying Guides
The 2005-2010 Mustangs are endlessly moddable, whether you have a GT or V6. From getting drag-strip level performance to simply adding a few visual upgrades, the aftermarket has options for every enthusiast.
For enthusiasts looking to customize the look of their S197 Mustang, a new set of wheels makes one of the biggest impacts. Plus, upgrading to a larger size allows you to fit tires that are more performance-focused.
This year, in particular, introduced an all-new 5.0L “Coyote” V8 with twin-independent variable camshaft timing pumping out a nasty 412 horsepower and 390 lb/ft of torque, which was then bumped to 420 for 2013-2014 GTs. Compared to the 2010’s outgoing 320 horsepower, this was quite a jump in power for nearly the same price. After picking up your new pony, the next step is always a good sounding exhaust system!
