DEARBORN, Mich., Oct. 31, 2017 – A storied history in powertrain development between Ford Performance and Roush Performance continues with a new state-of-the-art supercharger that peaks at 700 horsepower for the new V8-powered 2018 Mustang GT.
The supercharger kit is specially designed to work with the 5.0-liter V8’s new port and direct injection fuel system. The Mustang GT version also offers 610 lb.-ft. of torque at 12 psi of boost on 93 octane fuel for either manual or automatic transmission. When fitted to a 2018 F-150, it provides 640 horsepower and 600 lb.-ft.
The kit comes with all installation hardware and an exclusive performance calibration.
Ford Performance and Roush, with a successful working relationship that goes back more than two decades, are the foremost experts on Ford powertrains. This new supercharger kit is backed by a limited warranty and the vast support network of Ford Motor Company and Roush. The installation of this kit does not void new vehicle warranties.
