ford performance is now offering an upgrade kit for 2018–2020 mustang gt models that takes the 5.0-liter v-8 up a notch. for a total of $1275 before installation, it adds 19 horsepower and 18 lb-ft of torque, taking the v-8 up to 479 horsepower and 448 lb-ft of torque.
the kit includes a cold air intake and the upgraded throttle body from the mustang bullitt, along with an adapter for that throttle body. it also comes with a software recalibration kit that plugs in to the obd-ii port and is said to improve throttle response and change the shift mapping for the 10-speed automatic transmission (the kit is available for both manual-transmission and automatic-transmission mustang gts).
this kit essentially takes the standard mustang gt's 460-hp 5.0-liter v-8 up to the level of the 480-hp mustang bullitt, but for less money, as the bullitt starts more than $12,000 higher than the cheapest gt model. and because these are ford performance parts, ford includes a three-year/36,000-mile warranty with this upgrade kit if you get it installed by a ford dealer or a certified technician.
