Reed Speed 2010 Ford Mustang - Click above for high-res image

There's no shortage of Mustang tuners in this world, but Randall Reed Ford is removing the middle man and will begin offering its own "signature edition" 2010 Ford Mustang GT through Randall Reed stores and select dealerships across the country.

Developed in partnership with Artisan Performance, the Reed Speed SSE is packing a reworked engine, complete with forged rods, new pistons and Total Seal rings. The new internals drop the compression ratio to accept the 12 psi of dual-intercooled boost huffed through a set of Artisan Rear Mounted twin turbochargers. According to Reed, the combination is good for 700 hp, and will only be backed by a proper manual gearbox.

In addition to the engine mods, the stock stoppers have been replaced by 14-inch rotors with six-piston calipers supplied by SSBC, while a custom body kit widens the track of the Reed Speed 'Stang by 1.5-inches in front and 3.0-inches in the rear. Housed within the stretched sheet metal are 20-inch iForged wheels, measuring 11 inches wide in front and 13 inches in the rear, and along with the two-tone custom BASF paint and smoked lens, each Mustang comes with a numbered plaque and "owner's package." There's no word yet on pricing or availability, but expect the SSE to be available later this summer.

      Can't go wrong with I-forged wheels. Man, that thing look menacing...

      That paint job is insane. I love blue, and I love black. That is just gorgeous. Even the kit looks good. However I would switch out for some 18 inch wheels. 20's....not for 700hp and with the acceleration on that. I would be off the road in a heartbeat.

      I sort-of want this, but the rims... Why does every tuner think they need to throw 20"+ rims on every vehicle known to man? I'd much rather take some 16"-18" steelies over the things in the picture...

      Sick car but why does it need 700 hp?

        If you need to ask, you need to hand in your man card.

      I'm not a Mustang person, but I do think the render is fairly tasteful (minus the wheels). Render aside, I'm surprised that nobody has mentioned it yet, but the turbos are rear mounted.

      Engineering and physics fail.

      They really should have taken the time to properly package the turbos. I'm sure some of the peanut gallery will come out with anecdotes about how great STS turbo kits are, but I actually have firsthand experience with them.

      Yuck.

      Simply put, the boost is legitimate, but the lag is horrible. It doesn't seem like it would be bad, since the intake tubing isn't much longer in a rear-mount setup, but the net effect is considerably worse. My observations were that the temp differential down the intake tubing was resulting in stalled air in the pipe. It would eventually turbulate out, but it's nowhere near immediate. The last thing you want is a one second lag in a car that, even in it's current more refined form, suffers from bump steer.

      I think taglane might be right, not really sure though

      700 hp=Good

      Not sure how I'm feelin about the body kit though...
        • 5 Years Ago
