Only 103 units will be produced of the 2010 ROUSH Stage 3 Mustang, which reclaims its position on top of the hierarchy of Jack Roush's lineup. That means you have to make your decision on whether to buy the car quickly. Here are the details you need to help you out.
This vehicle is capable of 540hp and 510 lb-ft and is fully-loaded with the ROUSH body components; resonator exhaust; four-piston front brakes with 14-inch rotors and painted rear calipers with slotted rotors. It has a new upper billet grille which removes the fog lamps and streamlines the appearance of the new Mustang while improving cooling performance.
Inside, you will get ROUSH leather seats with an embroidered Jack Roush signature; four-piece performance pedals; ROUSH illuminated sill plates; short throw shifter with black or white ball; and a new interior Stage 3 badge with the car's serial number engraved.
The Mustang rides on 18-inch chrome wheels with high-performance Cooper RS3 tires. Optional items include 20-inch chrome wheels with Cooper RS3 tires.
The suspension package includes ROUSH front struts, rear shocks, front and rear springs, front and rear stabilizer bars and jounce bumpers. Do you remember that engine that debuted in the 2009 ROUSH P-51B Mustang? That's the engine that will go this vehicle.
For increased power from the Ford 4.6L, 3-valve engine, ROUSH technicians replaced many of the internal components with stronger parts including forged aluminum pistons (with an increased dish to lower the compression ratio from 9.8 to 8.6), forged steel H-Beam connecting rods and a forged steel crankshaft.
The fuel rails and the fuel injectors were changed; and the fuel pump was upgraded. Revisions were made to the clutch and include a custom-calibration for the ECM to manage the performance of the next-generation R2300 ROUSHcharger.
All new ROUSH Mustangs get the anti-wheel hop kit (No. 401788) that is installed during assembly. The 2010 ROUSH Stage 3 Mustang is covered by a 3-year/36,000-mile warranty. It is only available with a manual transmission.
