“The Steeda Q550 Streetfighter achieves its massive power output from the Ford Racing/Whipple Supercharger assembly. We selected the Ford Racing/Whipple supercharger application because it provides its power reliably over a broad rpm range on 93 octane fuel and is fully 50 state emission legal”, commented Dario Orlando, President of Steeda Autosports.
For a complete rundown on the new 2010 Steeda Q550 Streetfighter edition check out the press release and photos below.
The Los Angeles Auto Show was the forum for the world debut of an all-new ultimate street performance vehicle: The 2010 Steeda Q550 Streetfighter Edition. Destined to reign supreme in the Pony Wars – this high performance muscle machine is part of our continuous evolution of Steeda Autosports building the best performing Mustangs available anywhere. Conceived as the ideal Mustang that can be comfortably driven daily, it has all the necessary equipment to be a weekend warrior on the racetrack/drag-strip without worry.
Equipped with the most extensive amount of standard suspension upgrades we have ever included on one of our production vehicles – including our Watt’s Link Suspension system – this performance Mustang can easily pull 1.2gs. There is simply no other serialized Mustang available today that offers the performance, styling, and performance attitude that this Mustang has.

When mated with our unique performance pulley system and our other engine performance enhancements, this package really delivers the mail.
Jamie Allison, Ford Racing Performance Group Manager adds: “Dario Orlando and the entire team at Steeda Autosports have been a longtime and valued partner of Ford Racing and have many aftermarket offerings to choose from. We are excited and proud that they chose the FR 550HP supercharger to power their new Q550 Streetfighter Edition”.
In addition to the supercharger assembly, the Q550’s powertrain also is equipped with:
- Steeda custom engine calibration
- Steeda 11-13 psi belt drive kit
- Steeda Tri-Ax® Shifter
- Speed of Sound A-Pillar gauge cluster with Aeroforce gauges
Engine power is just part of the success story about the Q550 Streetfighter. While the exterior shares the same aerodynamic body modifications of the Q350 with the unique Steeda front fascia with openings for front brake duct cooling, the facia also incorporates unique vented openings for additional cooling. Additional exterior enhancements include:
