S197 Mustang Bolt Ons - Ford Racing's New 3V Intake and Exhaust

By , Photography by

The term "bolt ons" is deceiving. Technically, you could say building a car from a pile of parts is a "bolt ons" job; you bolt the suspension to the frame, bolt the engine and transmission together. But we've come to understand the term "bolt ons" to mean a simple remove-and-replace, with little effort required to make things fit. Very often this isn't the case, as anyone reading this magazine can attest. Fortunately, this bolt ons install was an exception. It was easy to do, required only a heat gun for special tools, and took about five hours of steady, but not frantic, work. Even better, we were rewarded with 30 extra horsepower at the wheels of this '05 Mustang GT, making the experience that much more rewarding. The setting for this install was GTR High Performance in Rancho Cucamonga, California, where Ricardo Topete, who co-owns the shop with his brother, did the work on a customer's car, installing Ford Racing's mufflers, intake manifold, throttle-body, and cold-air kit. These "bolt ons" fit all '05 to '09 Mustang GTs.
