Ghost Cam is not for power bro. There lies the problem . Ghost Cam tune is nothing more than a gimmick fake large cam sound. Its not performance oriented bro. Get another tune from MPT, race tune.

Kona if you wouldn't mind, take care of this? I have an understanding and desire to purchase LCA's in the future but I know you have LCA's on your V6 and maybe can answer this question better than I can.

They control axle rotation. The axle pushes on the rear lower control arms (LCA's), moving the rest of the Mustang forward.

The stock LCA's, with their rubber bushings, allow too much accessive deflection that prevents the rear axle from maintaining its correct position under the chassis, thus allowing the axle to shift forward, backward, and even sideways. This can also be seen as wheel hop which is of course, poor traction and poor handling.

Stock LCA's are stamped steel; cheap for mass production costs kept down.

There it is. Bammmmmm! Lol. The aftermarket LCA's do really work amazing and I bought mine new from AM for around 100 dollars. Really a nice upgrade for those looking to get improved traction by removing wheel hop.

Nailed it bucko! Thanks. They're definitely next up on my mod list. I'm on the stock motor with just a Steeda race tune and the wheel hop is ridiculous even with my P Zero's. Hopefully $150 will get me some nice LCA's and far better traction.

150, oh heck yeah bro. I would strongly recommend the J&M LCA's. Mine are non adjustable because I'm not lowering.

Ah yeah. Another question, I heard Steeda rebrands BMR parts and sell them as Steeda, is that true?

I highly doubt that, where did you hear this? I'm sure our "Steeda rep" that chimes in from time to time will clarify this.

I had a very brief conversation with the owner of a Mustang performance shop here and I think he mentioned something about Steeda rebranding some of their parts... Like I said it was brief and quite a while ago. I may be completely wrong.

Not to many retail places make their own parts.

They usually have a company that has the proper equipment to manufacture items to their standards. Most items are not just an item that is removed from one box and put into another box. It could be for a few things but the majority of parts and accessories are made specifically for the retail store that will sell them.
