2018 Mustang GT V-8 Makes 700 HP with Ford/Roush Supercharger Kit

Ford Performance and Roush Performance co-developed an all-new supercharger for the 5.0-liter V8 engine for the 2018 Mustang and F-150

Thrilled with your 2018 Ford Mustang GT but find the 460 horsepower provided by its 5.0-liter V-8 a little lacking? Dig your 2018 Ford F-150 but worried that modifying the 5.0 under the hood for more oomph might void your warranty? Fear not, Blue Oval faithful, for Ford Performance and Roush Performance have developed a new supercharger that significantly boosts output without putting your warranty in danger.

Designed to work specifically with the dual port/direct injection system of the 2018 5.0-liter V-8 with either an automatic or manual transmission, the supercharger’s 12 psi of boost pushes output in the Mustang GT to the 700-hp mark, while torque increases from a stock 420 lb-ft to a healthy 610. Fitting the supercharger to the 5.0 in the 2018 F-150 lifts output from 395 horsepower and 400 lb-ft of torque to 640 ponies and 600 lb-ft. That’s some serious grunt for any single modification, let alone one that comes with its own three-year/36,000-mile warranty.

More than just a bolt-in-and-pray hot-rodding trick, the kit includes a complete air-to-liquid intercooler system (pump, heat exchanger, and reservoir), its own lower intake manifold, 87-millimeter throttle body, a new air inlet, a six-rib FEAD (Front End Accessory Drive) system, installation hardware, and a cloud-based calibration flash delivery system. The supercharger itself is a Twin Vortices Series (TVS) 2650 with new four-lobe rotors that its makers say is 15 percent larger than the previous TVS 2300 series unit and incorporates high-flow inlet and outlet ports that greatly enhance thermal efficiency, all making for greater volumetric capacity at higher rpm.





Before you grab the wrenches, remember three things: The vehicle warranty and the supercharger warranty are both dependent on having the unit installed by an authorized Ford dealer or Institute for Automotive Service Excellence certified technician, you need to run 93-octane fuel to get the maximum output, and it won’t be on sale until early 2018. That gives you just enough time to brush up on your launch technique and save up for the as yet undisclosed price.
