aFe Sets 2015 Mustang Lap Record at Laguna Seca!

The aFe team had a great weekend as we headed up the California coast to put the aFe 2015 Mustang GT through its paces at the famous Laguna Seca Raceway. The goal to push the new aFe CONTROL Coilovers and Sway Bars in the track environment and test their performance. We also took the opportunity to test the aFe prototype Magnum Force Stage 2 Air Intake System.

We are pleased to report the aFe Mustang performed flawlessly, and the improved handling abilities provided by the aFe CONTROL Adjustable Coilovers and Sway Bars allowed us to put down a record lap time of 1:43.9 with our own driver, a very quick time that takes this mildly modified Mustang GT into a lap time of vehicles costing triple or more, and including besting previous cars like the 2010 Ford Shelby GT500 and 2008 Shelby GT500KR.

All of these products installed are prototypes, and will be launched soon. In addition to the suspension upgrades and intake, we also are in development on Headers, Cat-Back and a full 3" Exhaust which will continue to add horsepower.

    Any info on the sway bars, ie, how big they are in diameter? Hollow or tubular? Any information would be appreciated.

      Thank you for your interest Brandon. The bars are going to be a lightweight tubular alloy, and the front's will consist of a 35mm front 2 way adjustable bar and a 32mm 3 way adjustable rear bar. It will be a straight bolt-on with no modifications needed to install it. We are currently fit checking them to the 2.3L Ecoboost and V6 mustangs, since they fit the 5.0L GT models currently.

    Wow, 32mm rear sway bar?! That's massive, at least compared to what others are doing. I can wait to try the set out! In addition to said sway bars and coilovers, do you guys have any other S550 Mustang suspension components planned?
