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.

BlastOff

  • 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.

BlastOff

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

Is this starter much smaller than the stock starter? I need to fit this between kooks long tube headers.

AbandonedDreams

  • Hello there, I just purchased this starter motor. It's honestly not that much smaller, it's maybe an inch and a half shorter at the most from where it mounts vs. the stock starter, and only two pounds lighter. If you need every inch you can get, then it may work for you.

    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.

    Perfect Fit

    I purchased this because I installed a set of Kooks LT Headers and wanted the extra clearance. Fits great, looks great, and sounds great.

    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.

    Top Notch Quality

    For the record, I didn't NEED a new starter, but I am going to be doing a clutch job soon and this caught my eye. I read Robb10's review of this starter and he really seemed to like it. There's not much other information posted online for this item so I thought I would try it and share my experience. The starter itself is very high quality and is slightly smaller than the stock starter in size. It weighed 6.6 pounds on my scale vs 8.4 pounds for the stock starter. It came with all new mounting bolts and nuts for the electrical connections, as well as a new wiring harness. I personally did not install the new wiring harness because it is the same gauge wire as your stock wiring and there is no good reason to undo your stock wiring harness for the install. This means that installation for the new starter was just plug and play. I was very curious as to what the starter would sound like after reading Robb10's review, and it does have a unique sound. It's not as deep and loud as the stock starter rumble, but it's quieter overall and has a subtle high pitched motor whine to it. Overall it sounds more refined and efficient. The first noise that other people will hear will most likely be your engine exhaust firing up and not the actual starter. I noticed that my stock starter would occasionally struggle to start my engine but this one always starts it very quickly. Overall I'm pleased with my purchase and you can't go wrong with Ford Racing parts!

    FRPP Hi-Torque Mini Starter

    Installed the FRPP Hi-torque Mini Starter when replacing all of the clutch components. This starter is no joke. I HIGHLY recommend this particular model. The brief sound it makes when engaged is something to experience. Never in my life could i have imagined getting such a kick from hearing a motor start up. real gear heads will get a grin when heard. It is top notch. I'm so glad I got it. Surprised me when first engaged, in a good way.

    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.
