Roush and Ford Performance Supercharger Kit Boosts Mustang GT Output to 700 Horsepower
The new 2018 Ford Mustang is already shaping up to be an even more evolved performance beast with its improved powertrains and features like electronic line-lock and Drag Strip Mode. But since the evolution of this particular beast is ever continuing, there is always room to make it more powerful.
Ford Performance and Roush Performance found just that room and made good on it, introducing a new cutting-edge supercharger kit that will boost the 2018 Ford Mustang GT’s 5.0-liter V8 to an unearthly output of 700 horsepower and 610 lb-ft of torque.
The same supercharger kit, which includes installation hardware and performance calibration, is also being offered for the new 2018 Ford F-150 equipped with the 5.0-liter V8, boosting its output to 640 horsepower and 600 lb-ft of torque. Basically, this is some Pokemon mess. And not only does the Ford Performance/Roush Performance supercharger kit carry its own limited warranty, but it does not void the warranties of either the 2018 Mustang GT or F-150.
“Ford and Roush have teamed up on performance for years on and off the track,” said Doug White, Global Ford Performance Parts Manager. “This new supercharger is another great example of our innovation in performance, greatly improving horsepower and torque so people can enjoy two of our most iconic vehicles even more.”
“Our teams collaborated to create the most highly engineered, tested and performing supercharger kit on the market,” said Jack Roush, chairman, board of directors, Roush Performance. “The combination of the 2018 5.0-liter engine and our all-new, fully integrated 2650 supercharger system yields simply incredible, no-compromise performance.”
The Ford Performance supercharger kit is set to be available through Ford dealers, Roush Performance dealers, and Ford Performance Warehouse Distributors by early next year. More information will be made available at FordPerformanceParts.com.
