Ford And Roush Have Partnered To Make Mustang GTs Stomp Hellcats All Day Long

This is a SERIOUS power bump

3y ago

If you are a fan of Ford Performance, or Ford in general, or just know a thing or two about cars, you've no roubt heard the name Roush. The specialty tuner has made its name in racing and turning of cars through the last many decades. Specifically, Fords. Duh.

Well Ford Performance has once again partnered with Roush to create a glorious supercharger kit that, get this, will bost a stock 2018 Mustang GT to 700 horsepower. Yea, that's enough to shit all over Hellcats all the live long day.

From Ford:

“Ford and Roush have teamed up on performance for years on and off the track,” said Doug White, Global Ford Performance Parts Manager. “This new supercharger is another great example of our innovation in performance, greatly improving horsepower and torque so people can enjoy two of our most iconic vehicles even more."

“Our teams collaborated to create the most highly engineered, tested and performing supercharger kit on the market,” said Jack Roush, chairman, board of directors, Roush Performance. “The combination of the 2018 5.0-liter engine and our all-new, fully integrated 2650 supercharger system yields simply incredible, no-compromise performance.”

The kit comes with everything you'll need to install it and then immediately call out your nearest, smug-ass Hellcat neighbor. Oh and you can also chuck it on an F-150 as well.

"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."

That's Z06 territory power, in a gas, non-turbo-diesel truck. Awesome. God bless the power states of America. I don't know about you, but I'm pretty stoked to see the first of these at the strip.

  • The coyote has plenty of strength in the bottom end to handle 700. Plus the 2013-14 GT500 had 662HP which isn't far from this kit or the hellcat so the hype is a bit much, still exciting though. Still doesn't mean much on a track though. Let's not forget when the Toyota GT86 beat a hellcat charger around a track by 10 seconds, you don't need that much power if you don't have to slow down for corners lol.

  • Oh yeah cause what we need are 700 hp mustangs running into crowds. Smart idea there.

    For real all jokes aside 700hp mustangs aren't anything special. Wasn't the super snake more powerful than this? Plus this is a kit right? Like developed by roush for the mustangs and not out the factory equipped? I don't think the drivetrain will last under all the torque/abuse but I guess we'll have to see when it comes out.

    • If they sell it through Ford Racing Performance Parts and you get it installed on a new car by a dealer it will most likely come with a 12 month warranty. Granted that's down from the 3/36 a new car normally carries but the FRPP/Roush stuff tends...

  • Are the stock internals and trans up to that sort of power or are you going to end up with a crankcase full of assorted metal bits a short period down the road?
