"expression of the owner’s personality"

Congratulations! After saving up, you finally have a 2015-2017 Mustang GT sitting in your driveway. There’s only one problem… it’s bone stock and looks exactly the same as the GT sitting in the lot at your local Ford dealer.

Being one of the most modified and customized vehicles in the world, the Ford Mustang is truly an expression of the owner’s personality. That’s why finding the right S550 Mustang parts to deck out your pony is imperative to make sure your car sits out from the rest.

As you all have seen him in the videos on our YouTube Channel, our host Bill Tumas walks around his personal Roush Supercharged 2015 Mustang GT and shares his favorite modifications to date.

Transmission-mounted, this shifter essentially transforms your existing remote-mount shifter setup into a solid-mount which will provide a more confidence-inspiring shifting experience, especially at high-RPM.

Ridetech Level 2 HQ Series Coilover Kit

The factory ride height of the S550 Mustang is much better than some past body styles. However, body roll, nose dive and floatiness are still complaints of many 2015+ Mustang owners running stock suspension - after all, it is a “GT” or “Gran Touring” car - made for long drives with some power under the hood. If you’re looking to get a little more out of the suspension of your Mustang when it comes to carving corners with minimal body roll and immediate responsiveness, you can’t go wrong with a Level 2 HQ Series Coilover Kit from Ridetech!

Ford Performance by Borla Sport Cat-Back Exhaust With GT350 Valance

From the factory, the OEM exhaust on the 2015+ Mustang GT seems to be quieter than ever. This could be for various reasons, most likely due to the fact the Mustang went global in 2015 and other countries have stricter noise restrictions than the US. With that said, an aftermarket exhaust system is a must for any Mustang enthusiast. Why not go with the best of the best in both sound and looks with a Quad-Tip Sport Cat-Back Exhaust from Ford Performance paired with a stunning GT350 Rear Valance?

Roush 670 Horsepower Phase 1 Supercharger Kit

If you’re a regular viewer of the CJ YouTube Channel, you’ve probably gotten to know Bill’s style when it comes to modifying his 2015 GT. With that said, it’s absolutely no surprise that his favorite modification to date is the Phase 1 Supercharger Kit from Roush Performance pumping out a not-so-modest 670 horsepower.

Bill had his car run on the dyno to measure the exact output to the wheels, and it came out to a very respectable 555 HP. This horsepower number even includes the factory exhaust manifolds and catalytic converters! For a supercharger kit that retains a warranty when installed by a Ford dealer, you seriously can’t go wrong with nearly 700 horsepower at the crank out of this Phase 1 Kit from Roush.
