In case you ever wondered what would happen if you decided to convert your naturally-aspirated Mustang GT to forced induction, Ford Performance and Roush have decided to oblige.
They have more pretentious clients covered with the new supercharger kit for the 2018 Mustang GT… and the 2018 F-150. It comes with 12 psi of boost, reaching a power level of 700 horsepower and 610 pound-feet of torque in the pony car, or 640 hp and 600 lb-ft on the V8-equipped F-150. Both models thus gain a healthy amount of power – and best of all they have no negative impact on the factory warranty. The standard 2018 Mustang GT V8 comes with 460 hp and 420 lb-ft while the F-150 makes do with 395 hp and 400 lb-ft from its version of the same V8.
Ford revealed the new kit has been specifically designed to go with the new port- and direct-injection fuel system of the V8 engine – and on the Mustang it’s available on both the ix-speed manual and 10-speed automatic transmission. When installed at a Ford dealership or ASE-certified technician, the kit has no impact on the vehicle’s standard new-car warranty – it also arrives with all the needed elements to install the supercharger, along with a new engine-computer tune.
