Ford Racing has announced its first power upgrade for the new 5.0-liter engine in the ’11 Mustang GT – and it’s a good one.
The new 2.3L twin-screw supercharger can take the 5.0 up to 624 horsepower and 536 lb. ft. of torque. It’s the first twin-screw unit available to consumers.
Developed by Ford Racing engineers in collaboration with Ford Motor Company’s powertrain engineers, Team Mustang, and key partners in Roush and Whipple, the supercharger comes as a complete package and is available in three levels: a 525hp kit with a 12/12 warranty, a 624hp kit, and a tuner kit for racing and extreme performance.
“Superchargers are the ultimate in power upgrades for Mustang enthusiasts,” says George Goddu, Ford Racing Performance Group Manager. “Calibration for a modern V8 engine, especially one with twin-independent variable cam timing, is incredibly complex. Production calibration for the 5.0 engine took 19 months, but it results in great power, drivability, and durability.”
