The Story of Custom Performance
Custom Performance has always focused on Ford performance, but Mustangs are our specialty. With over 30 years of experience, we have the skills and training to tune it, boost it, or maintain it. It doesn't matter if you're into drag racing, road racing, car shows, or just your daily driver. We strive to use only the best manufacturers and work with the likes of SCT Performance, Kooks Custom Headers, Ford Racing, Steeda, and many other top-of-the-line companies. Our technicians are trained and certified to provide the most efficient and immaculate installations possible. We respectfully suggest that when it comes to making your Ford go fast, you compare Custom Performance's parts selection and our reputation for neat and durable installations to our competition. You can find us next to Charlotte Motor Speedway in the hi-tech business park, just two minutes away from zMAX Dragway.
How It All Began
Dale Sciranko, the owner of Custom Performance, has been surrounded by Mustangs his entire life. He grew up helping his father, Bob, at his performance transmission shop. Dale owned his first Mustang at age 13 and worked night and day to get the 1967 Fastback ready for the day he could drive... legally, that is. When Dale was in high school he was one of the few who owned a Mustang, because Ford was considered the underdog in those days. He had logged years of research and development by the time Ford introduced the new 1987 5.0 Mustang body style. Many would go to Dale for tuning and advice because of his reputation for always having one of the fastest Mustangs. Eventually he was so busy making others' Mustangs go fast he decided to open a shop dedicated to just that. Custom Performance was founded in November 1991 and has continued to grow as Dale's family has grown.
"Track tested power, street driven reliability": that's what we strive to provide with every vehicle. Custom Performance was founded on the idea that every vehicle should perform at its best and still be street-drivable. We pride ourselves in offering the best selection of parts manufacturers as well as unbeatable technique with our installations. All of the parts vendors we sell and install have been carefully selected by our team members. We only sell what we use on our own vehicles so that we can guarantee personal experience and knowledge about each product. Custom Performance is proud to offer the expertise of four generations of Mustang enthusiasts.
