            Performance Starter

            The items was brand new out of the box got here really quickly as well. Putting it on your self can be very tedious if you do not have the right tools or knowledge. install time for me was about half a day. given that this was the first time i had replaced one on my 2002 mustang it was very difficult. i could probably do it in a few hours now knowing what to do. works great though car starts so much better and easier. i can tell a huge difference in the starts. even in cold weather it pulls strong.

            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.

            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

            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.
