The demand for Ford Performance and Roush Performance parts and conversion kits from their new place in Centurion is proving very strong and in some cases, demand is outstripping supply.
This is only a month after the official launch, said general manager Grant Askham.
“We are delighted that even in this economic downturn, there are Ford owners who still want to improve the performance or appearance of their Fords,” he said.
One of the problems with performance improvements is that they void manufacturers’ vehicle warranties. What has been arranged for the Ford Performance Parts and Roush Performance fitments is a comprehensive three-year/60 000km engine warranty that will cover the performance upgrades, while the remainder of the original Ford warranty will NOT be voided!
Under the Roush banner, the Mustang is offered with three levels of performance improvements, ranging from cold air induction and an exhaust system (level 1); cosmetic features and an ECU upgrade (level 2) and the fitment of a Roush supercharger and revised suspension (level 3).
Under the Ford Performance Parts banner, upgrades for other Ford models, including the Ranger, Everest, Fiesta ST and Focus ST are available.
The company is currently awaiting approval for Roush performance improvement kits for the Ranger and Everest models, but meanwhile it is selling suspension kits and other accessories for them.
The fitment centre is manned by master technicians and this will be a requirement when other Ford accredited dealers are established to do performance improvements themselves.
