Ford Racing Releases Supercharger for 2011 Mustang GT's 5.0-Liter V8


When it comes to Ford Mustang performance and forced induction, superchargers are definitely at the top of the list. There's just nothing better than accentuating the natural torque of a V8 than pairing it up with a brilliantly designed supercharger. Ford Racing wasted no time on the 2011 Ford Mustang's 5.0L V8 TiVCT motor and has just announced a twin-screw supercharger setup for the vehicle.

The supercharger is a 2.3L twin-screw setup and helps the Mustang put down 624-hp and 536 ft-lbs of torque. That is a very nice increase from the factory 412-hp and 390 ft-lbs of torque. "Superchargers are the ultimate in power upgrades for Mustang enthusiasts," George Goddu, Ford Racing Performance Group Manager said.

Those looking for a nice increase without the overpowering 600+ figure can opt for a 525-hp kit with a 12 month, 12,000 mile warranty. And in addition to the mid-level 624-hp kit is a tuner kit for racing and extreme enthusiasts. No horsepower figures were released for that kit, but we're guessing it's pretty extreme.

Costs range from $6,499 for black to $8,099 for polished chrome. Naturally Ford Racing didn't release what the supercharger does in terms of hampering mpg, but they were nice enough to share that the kit adds 47 lbs to the car. We're going to guess that's not exactly noticeable with the globs of horsepower that comes with it.
