racing seats

ive been lookin for a while for a site or company that sold racing seats along with some kind of bracket or adapter to fit the factory base of the mustang to allow me to keep the power seat features..ive seen a pic of a s197 with the racing seat and the factory base b4 but cant remeber where it was.. to get that set up will i have to have it welded to the base or is there an actual place i can buy the hardware i need? any help would be greatly appreciated thanks


what else could i ditch or swap to drop some weight.....i know the 2 piece drive shaft has to go i was thinking about the steed hood...but i like scoops so im not sure on that one yet....i know its not much but i was thinking about ditching the rear wing(looks more like a sleeper to imo)

Well I can get you the seats and brackets but the brackets won't be power. Why do you want power anyway? You will save more weight without the power seats and it is just as easy to pull a lever and slide front or back IMO.

Corbeau makes a good seat and has one of the best prices, you can find a pair for the price on one sparco. Any decent seat is gonna need a bracket ordered seperate. Its prolly one of the best mod you do for you and your car.

You save a ton of weight also. The factory seats are so heavy! I sent you a PM Tarpeeler.

They are also ALOT more comfortable than the stock seats.

A good racing seat is not only more comfortable, but SAFER!

My stock seats in my '85 GT Stang were wonderful. The seats that came in my '02 GT Stang, were HORRIBLE!!! Not only uncomfortable and very high with power slides, but like a block of ice around the slightest turn. My current Recaro "Speed" seats are 3" lower with new slides and cut another 1.5" off rear legs so lower still.

Got rid of the silly power seat slide and saved about 10K pounds in weight*

There is probably a combination like "turn ignition on/off 5 times. push gas pedal in..." that type of thing that will turn off the side airbags

It would be nice if that was the case, but I would actually be very surprised if that was possible, being that it is a big liability to give someone the ability to turn off something that could save their life, and then possibly sue or whatever...but who knows....I know there are people out there that have changed their seats with side bags, someone chime in!

the side airbags that are part of the front seats are actually an option and not a standard feature. at least they are in my 07 as i had to add them as an option.

You will only have an issue with the passenger side as that seat has a sensor in it to disable the airbag when not a big enough person is sitting in it.
Brenspeed can fix the code it will throw.

The seat belts have saved plenty of lives and you can turn them off ...

you can also turn off traction control with the click of a button on the dash.
