Engine and transmission modifications

  • The new cast aluminum intake manifold has an increased runner diameter to maintain low-end torque and provide a broader power curve for increased top-end performance.
  • A twin 57mm-bore throttle body replaces the GT 65 mm throttle body, allowing for quicker throttle response and increased peak flow.
  • To reduce parasitic losses, the alternator pulley was increased to 66 mm and the water pump pulley was increased to 140 mm.
  • The exhaust system has been retuned to increase flow approximately 20% and give the Bullitt a new distinct sound.
  • All Mustang Bullitts will have the new tr3650 transmission and clutch assembly that provides improved shift quality. A new 11-inch flywheel and clutch assembly have been added to increase torque capacity and reduce clutch pedal efforts.


  • Pony on grill is centered in a blacked out coral instead of chrome.
  • Does not come with a spoiler.
  • Brushed aluminum gas filler door.
  • Molded front mud guards.
  • Different Rocker Panels
  • Lowered by 3/4"
  • Red Brake calipers.
  • Fake rear brake venting is only extruding and does not have the honeycomb plastic grill.
  • Bullitt Badge on Trunk lid.
  • Rolled exhaust tips.
  • Molded c-pillars sweep forward instead of straight down.


  • Brushed aluminum looking shifter bezel.
  • Brushed aluminum shifter knob.
  • Door sills with BULLITT logo.
  • Retro dash has white lighting and closely indexed speedometer.
  • Seats are stitched to emulate the style from the 60's.
  • New stainless steel pedal covers are positioned to provide better heel-to-toe relationship.
