Roush Performance has released a new “Phase 1” supercharger kit for the 2018 Ford Mustang GT and its dual-injected, third-generation 5.0L Coyote V8, facilitating the output of up to 700 horsepower from the fresh new powerplant. Power was already upped significantly for 2018, of course, from 435 to 460 horsepower in the United States, but when is more power not welcome?

The supercharger kit, originally announced last November at the 2017 Specialty Equipment Market Association Show, uses Eaton’s well-regarded TVS (Twin Vortices Series) R2650 rotating assembly, which uses twin four-lobe rotors twisted 170 degrees. The blower displaces 2,650 cubic centimeters, and promises enhanced thermal an volumetric efficiency thanks to high-flowing front inlet and outlet ports, along with better durability thanks to “bigger bearings and thicker timing gears”.

The Roush Performance Phase 1 supercharger kit, developed with Ford Performance, is rated at 700 horsepower and 610 lb-ft of torque on the latest 5.0L Coyote running 91-octane gasoline, with 12 psi of boost.

Achieving all these attributes was no easy task, and Roush says the new Phase 1 TVS R2650 supercharger “spent hundreds of hours atop our engine dyno,” undergoing “well over 17 million wide-open-throttle cycles.” It’s priced at $7,699.99, with all necessary hardware for installation in any manual- or automatic-equipped 2018 Ford Mustang GT, plus all required supporting equipment, including a high-efficiency intercooler and a full-face radiator. When installed by a Ford dealer team or other ASE-certified technician, it even comes with a 3-year/36,000-mile powertrain warranty.
