      Great Product!!

      had my local mechanic install it, took less than an hour and he did not need to loosen my headers. I replaced my battery as well after I installed this starter, the car fires up on the dime and so fast. I only replaced my stock starter because I bought the car off someone else and was playing it safe, so I can tell the difference and I was NOT having starter/battery problems prior to installing this starter and THEN new battery.

      Fires right up when you turn the ignition over followed by a very smooth startup!

      Great addition to rebuild of 96 GT engine. It’s a good looking part to go along with all the other new parts.

      PA Performance Starter

      Ordered this part because my stock starter went out and I wanted a better performance starter. Went with the PA performance starter and can I say I am extremely impressed. Starts up with no problem. There isn't a 2-3 second pause anymore before engine starts up. Would recommend to any upgraded mustang owners

      Good replacement for price

      Worked well. No issues installation was a tad bit tricky with the 3rd bolt. But managed to get it with a few extensions and the car on jack stand. As well as taking the tire off

      New Starter

      Starter works great. It's quieter than my stock starter that it replaced. Install took maybe 30 min on jack stands with no special tools or adapters.

      PA Performance Starter

      This new starterworks great on my 01 GT. quieter and easier starting, cost less than the local parts stores and is a new unit(lifetime warranty), not some rebuilt 2yr warranty mess. A bit of a PITA to install on the 01GT, and shop time was roughly 1.5hrs. Would recommend this ittem to anyone needing a new one.

      A buddy and I installed this starter last night thinking the old one was going bad. Turns out it wasn't, or at least not yet, but after inspecting the unit it probably wasn't long off. Either way, this PA starter is a good improvement over the stock. Starts faster and easier than stock, and is quieter. The third bolt at the top of the starter is an absolute pain to get out. Had to try different combinations of extensions and swivel to get, and it was entirely by feel with the socket. Couldn't get to the bolt with fingers. Had to unbolt the AC condenser and move out of the way and move the splash guard. Used 3/8 drive tools 'cause didn't have 1/4, but still got it done. Turns out a lot of people don't put that last bolt back in, but we got it back in with relative ease compared to removing it.

      Great starter

      My stock starter went out and bought this because of the reviews on it. It's a great starter easy to install only had to modify the ground cable slightly but this thing starts right up first time every time.
