After a long leave of absence, Australia’s “Tickford” tuner brand is back in full swing, revealing new performance upgrade packages for both the “GT” and “EcoBoost” models of the S550 Ford Mustang.
270 Power Pack For Ford Mustang EcoBoost
Tickford’s “270 Power Pack” for the current Ford Mustang EcoBoost, so-named for its official power rating in kW, boasts a cold-air intake, quad-tip cat-back exhaust (2.5-inch) with carbon tips developed in-house, and a model-specific ECU tune. The result is a claimed output of 270 kW (about 362 horsepower) and 540 Nm (398 lb-ft). That’s 37 kW (50 hp) and 108 Nm (80 lb-ft) better than stock.
In addition, the package includes a special rear diffuser, a Tickford exterior badge, a build-number plaque, and a driveline warranty.
360 Power Pack For Ford Mustang GT
If you own a Ford Mustang GT, Tickford’s solution is the new “360 Power Pack,” which boosts total output to 360 kW (483 hp) and 585 Nm (431 lb-ft). Those numbers, representing gains of 54 kW (72 hp) to power and 55 Nm (41 lb-ft) to torque, are achieved in the same way as on Tickford’s EcoBoost package. That is to say, a cold-air intake, quad-tip cat-back exhaust (3-inch, in this case) with carbon tips, and an ECU recalibration.
Once again, the package also includes a bespoke rear diffuser, Tickford exterior badge, build-number plate, and a driveline warranty.
Tickford’s new Ford Mustang Power Packs are both priced at $6,990 Australian including Goods and Services Tax (GST). Of course, Tickford won’t stop here; additional upgrade packages that target the Mustang’s handling and appearance separately are also in the works, and will hopefully be revealed within the coming months. Stay tuned.
