Lowering Springs

Lowering springs are another common enthusiast mod that improves both the performance and looks of your 2024 Mustang. They replace the stock coil springs, lowering the ride height and reducing body roll in corners. They’re not as adjustable as coilovers, but they're a great budget option for those looking to lower their S650 without spending thousands of dollars.

Air Filter

Upgrading the air filter in your 2024 Mustang is a quick and easy way to squeeze a bit of performance out of your ride. While not as impactful as a new supercharger or exhaust system, swapping out the factory air filter for a less restrictive unit can lead to performance and efficiency gains.

Many of these aftermarket filters are meant to be used over and over, so it's important to learn how to clean a reusable air filter.

Oil Separator

If you plan to take your S650 to the track or push it on some backroads, an oil separator is a must-have mod.

These small, cheap, and easy-to-install upgrades capture oil blow-by from your engine and separate and recirculate the oil back into your engine. This keeps your engine running right. Learn how to install an oil separator in your 2024 Mustang and find the perfect unit for your needs below.

Wheel Spacers

Another cheap and effective mod for your S650 is a set of wheel spacers. These allow you to dial in your fitment after you've lowered your car or upgraded to a set of aftermarket wheels. Wheels spacers are extremely easy to install and come in a variety of sizes and bolt patterns to fit your ride.
