    The original starter had a plastic piece that went over the electrical connections on the starter. The original did not fit on this starter as the connectors were different lengths than the original starter. Is there a protector out there for this starter.

    • The Ford Performance High Torque Mini Starter is not designed to accept a protector, however battery protector spray can be used on the terminals to prevent corrosion, and if you are worried about heat soak, several companies do make universal heat shields for starters

    I am pretty sure this will still fit since I believe the FR 5.3L engine is pretty much just a stroked 4.6 but since it's not listed, I figure I better ask anyway. Will this fit the FR 5.3L engine and do you need anything else to go with it.

    • The Ford Performance High Torque Mini Starter will work with the Ford performance 5.3L engine, as this is a bored/stroked 4.6L

      Faulty solenoid....

      I would highly recommend bench testing the starter and solenoid prior to installation! I installed mine without testing it and after wrapping up the install (quick and easy due to the smaller size btw) I attached the cables to the battery and the starter started to spin with the ignition off. The solenoid would not actuate properly letting current travel to the starter motor with no ignition..... I know it's not anyone's fault it's just a recommendation to test before install. I'm sure AM will do me right like always and exchange the starter.

      Great Starter!

      Hardest part of the install was getting the old starter out due to the location of the bolts. Once out this one went in easy due to its smaller size. I did not use the cables included but rather reused the ones from the stock starter that were already installed and have had no issues. Starter sounds great and much stronger and faster cranking compared to the stock one. Would highly recommend, especially if your running longtubes or plan to in the future.

      Amazing fit and easy install

      I have kooks headers and the factory starter was a pain to get in and out on install and when it went bad it took forever to get it out in a parking lot. This one went in with ease 20 minute install and fired right up. And it sounds really cool when it turns over

      Works Like A Charm

      The starter was easy to install, a couple of pounds lighter than the stock one and was a direct replacement. Fishing the new wires (they are a little beefier than the OEM wires from the battery to the starter) was the most difficult part and it was not that bad. The sound is different than the stock unit - faster and more high pitched. It sounds better overall and just "feels" better.

      This starter spins much faster then the stock or other starters I have tried labeled "High Performance". The sound of my car starting is impressive now. I am very pleased that I made this purchase. I would purchase this product again.

      Excellent starter

      This starter is very nice. It's about the size of my stock starter side by side, but when it's mounted to the car, It has a great amount of clearance with my Kooks 1 7/8" long tubes/ with cats. I love how it instantly starts the car, without the almost hesitation start that the stock starter does.

      Install and use

      First and foremost, I have a highly modified setup with larger headers, different k-member and motor mounts. That being said my experience might be different from yours. I was able to access all bolts using assorted extensions and swivel sockets. The removal of the stock starter was actually more difficult than installing the mini. Very happy with the starting capabilities when the car is warm and cold. Will upload photos soon.

      Great

      This is a great upgrade. I did not realize how noisy the stock starter was. The new one was slightly smaller and lighter than the stock one. They provided everything needed. It comes with new wiring. I didn't install that because I didn't want to break open the wire looms.

      Good Starter for Long Tube Headers

      I just recently installed Kooks 1-7/8" long tubes on my mustang and ended up replacing the starter with this unit. My original starter was working fine, but I ended up over torquing the ground wire and broke the stud off of the solenoid. I saw they had this unit which is supposed to be smaller than the stock starter and has more starting torque, so I took a chance and ordered it. At first glance, it appears to be the same size as the stock starter. however after installed there is more clearance between my headers than the stock starter. Also the claim that it has more starting torque is true. Sometimes with the stock starter it seemed like it would struggle to start the engine, and I don't even have 10K miles on my car. With this starter the few times that I've tried it, it starts instantaneously, and just feels smoother when turning the key. On other thoughts the wiring harness they provide you with will be unnecessary for most people, and could be omitted to cut cost. If you need to replace your starter or are just doing long tubes, I would definitely recommend this starter.
