Australian tuner Tickford has released the first of its personalisation packages for the Ford Mustang with power and torque boost for both GT and EcoBoost variants.

The “360 Power Pack” brings a host of goodies to the V8-powered GT including cold air intake, an ECU recalibration, Tickford-developed quad catback exhaust and bespoke rear diffuser. Priced at $6,990 including fitment, the upgrade lifts output of the 5.0-litre V8 from the standard 306kW of power and 530Nm of torque to 360kW and 585Nm.

For a peace of mind, the 360 Power Pack is supported by Tickford’s exclusive driveline warranty and each Mustang fitted with the pack will receive individually-numbered build plates and “Tickford-enhanced” badging.

“Mustang owners are real vehicle enthusiasts so we wanted to ensure Tickford’s first release of personalisation options captured their enjoyment of driving and enhanced it,” said Tickford Director Performance Parts, Tony Harris.

“Our aim was to not only deliver generous increases in power and torque, but also create a unique exhaust note which was strong and deep, yet was suitable for daily driving as well.

“Our 360 Power Pack is the epitome of our Performance driven by passion tagline. It is tuned and developed for Australian conditions and really unleashes the performance of the GT, boosting an already impressive baseline package.

“It will absolutely put a smile on owners’ faces from the first time they start the car and every time they accelerate.”

Owners of the turbocharged four-cylinder Mustang EcoBoost have not been left out, as Tickford has also developed the “270 Power Pack” for EcoBoost models boosting output from the stock 233kW and 432Nm to a healthy 270kW and 540Nm.

The pack costs the same and features the same components as its GT equivalent, plus a calibration specific to the turbo 2.3-litre EcoBoost power plant.

“The Mustang EcoBoost is becoming a popular choice and our equivalent 270 Power Pack powertrain package will give owners a significant uplift in overall vehicle performance,” Mr Harris continued.

“We believe it will also attract customers to the EcoBoost variant who like the idea of a smaller capacity and more efficient engine, but have been waiting for a performance boost.

“The 270 Power Pack will really surprise people and like our V8 offering, it comprises quality, highly-engineered components backed by Tickford’s warranty.”

In keeping with Tickford’s personalisation mantra, Mustang owners happy with the standard level of performance can have the quad catback exhaust and rear diffuser fitted as standalone options on either GT or EcoBoost models.

Tickford is also an authorised Ford Performance Parts dealer and is offering the option of a Ford Performance Mustang GT Supercharger Kit. The company’s Mustang Power Packs will soon be followed by ride and handling packages along with styling and interior options.

Mustang packages join the tuner’s large suite of options already available for the Ranger ute, all of which are fitted through Tickford’s Modification Centres in Melbourne and Sydney.
