Also on our hit list was a fresh starter. Ford Racing carries the latest Ford corporate mini-starter, PN M-11000-A50. It packs plenty of cranking torque, weighs less than our stock starter, and has OEM reliability. Its modern sound and high-rpm cranking still surprise us every time we hit the key. Installation requires bypassing the fender-mounted starter solenoid, but that's no more than moving a wire from one post to another.
