The release of the 2016 Ford Mustang S550 in factory right hand for the Australian market was the perfect opportunity for Harrop to develop an innovative new range of performance products, heroed by our TVS2300 Supercharger Kit.
With a wealth of experience developing and supplying both OEM and Aftermarket performance systems, our team got straight to work, evaluating how we could apply our engineering skills to develop the performance and capabilities one of the mostly highly anticipated vehicle releases.

Whilst our engineers were hard at work in the design phase, we took the opportunity to work closely with Muse Concept Design to create a high quality, luxurious interior upgrade for Mustang owners. Using only genuine Italian Alcantara Leather we managed to transform the look and feel of the stock Mustang interior. Our White Horse showcases the full interior package; with Alcantara roof lining, pillars, centre console, dash panels, shift knob, hand brake boot and the steering wheel.
We also took the opportunity to fit a set of VX1’s from the best wheel manufacturer on the planet, Forgeline Forged Alloy Wheels. The look and finish of the Tinted Gold is perfect on the Mustang in 20”x10” at the front with a 275 tyre and 20”x11” at the back with a 295 Michelin Pilot Super Sport.

Fresh out of the CNC machines our first batch of performance goodies designed for the Ford Mustang were fitted onto our project vehicle. We achieved a 30% reduction in unsprung weight thanks to our full floating 2 piece bobbin drive rotor upgrade and improved the ride and stance thanks to a set of KW V3 Coilovers. We partner with KW Suspension for their state of the art technology leveraged in Germany for thorough R&D programs on each product, this is evident in the V3 system which features 16 clicks of adjustable rebound dampening and 12 clicks of adjustable compression dampening.

Before bolting on our boost device we wanted to develop optimised performance systems for the naturally aspirated ‘Coyote’. Like any NA platform, improving the engine breathing through intake and exhaust upgrades is the best opportunity to increase overall performance. The Engineering Team developed our Cold Air Intake Kit (CAI) using a carbon K&N pod filter and a housing to maximise the cold air channel to the engine. The Mustang CAI Kit represents great bang for your buck, with a 15kw gain measured with only the CAI and a total of 30kw when optimised with a custom dyno tune and 3” cat-back exhaust system.
This represents great value for Mustang enthusiasts who want to tailor their ride, but may not want to take the step into the extreme performance available with forced induction.

This inverted positive displacement supercharger kit is engineered and manufactured by Harrop to OEM standards using Eaton R2300 TVS Technology. Featuring superior packaging and performance efficiency, this kit is available as both a Tuner Kit or Complete Kit with a supplied emissions certification pending calibration, offering the S550 chassis the power and torque enhancement normally reserved for supercars with more than triple the price tag.
