Why is it that Mustang-lovers keep looking at dropping even more horses underneath the hood of the Shelby GT500? What, is 500 hp just not enough for you? We guess not — which is why the Mustang-tuners at Steeda are letting you drop off your GT500 and in return you'll get a brand new 'stang ready to play in the pony car wars — the Steeda Ford Mustang GT500. Your newly tuned GT500 gets a performance boost from the "base" 500 slapped together by the SVT team to a whopping 600 horses via a Pro-Flow cold air intake and some ECU tuning par excellence. In addition, they've added their very own 13" rear brake upgrade kit and 14" slotted front rotors and upgraded pads. They've also made some suspension modifications on both the back and the front of your new beast. Combine it all together, slap a just-under-$14,000 price tag on the modifications, and you've got a fun little toy to play with before you Mustang-mad folks get bit by the little snake FoMoCo releases next. Full release after the jump.

BlackIce...If I am not mistaken, Saleen is supercharging the aluminum 4.6L in their vehicles. The great thing is, they are producing cars that are just as quick, if not quicker, than the GT500 but with less power. Also, they handle better. Why Ford didnt do that in the first place is beyond me. I am sure a lot of people would have been a lot more excited over a 450hp blown aluminum 4.6L than the lump of iron 5.4L.

Also, what is so bad about the Mustangs rear suspension? Yeah, I am sure it would be smoother with IRS but Ford's engineers did an amazing job with the setup. A stock GT rides nice and even with simple aftermarket coil springs and shocks, the ride is even better. But personally, I would like to see an IRS system in the Stang. The added weight would probably help balance the weight in the GT500.
