12-29-07: With gas remaining at $3.00 a gallon nationwide for the past couple of years and the new movement to more efficient cars on the horizon, the V6 Mustangs are looking better than ever to buyers. In fact because of the aforementioned market and regulatory conditions, Ford is already increasing the percentage of V6 engines in production plans, while decreasing the amount of V8’s it is building.
Seeing the writing on the wall, Steeda has sought to invest in the V6 Mustang with a full line of parts and accessories. Recently, the company showed its Steeda V6 Mustang performance prototype at the 2007 SEMA Show in Las Vegas. With a positive reception at the annual convention Steeda Autosports is announcing the immediate availability of the Steeda QS6 Mustang and a full line of performance parts and accessories for the V6 powered Ford Mustang.
The Steeda QS6 Mustang is best described by deciphering its nomenclature in detail: “Q” – Quick, “S” – Supercharged, “6” – V6 Powered. The Steeda QS6 Mustang provides for nimble handling attributable to its near perfect 50/50 weight distribution. Added to this platform is the famed Steeda Autosports performance suspension and powertrain upgrades.
The secret to it’s outstanding success is it’s positive displacement Roots-type supercharger provides much more power at lower speeds than what the competitor’s centrifugal superchargers can deliver, resulting in a lightweight pony that can really deliver the excitement. With a total of 355 horsepower and 365 ft. lbs. of torque available at your command, there is ample power available to blast out of the corners as others are waiting for their supercharges to build boost with engine speed.

Performance is outstanding – and throttle response is fantastic. The efficient by-pass system allows no-boost cruising, and the supercharger needs only 3 horsepower to drive it while the by-pass valve is open. Fuel economy is similar to stock.
