PLYMOUTH, MI. (March 29, 2018) —A storied history in powertrain development between ROUSH Performance and Ford Performance continues with today’s availability of the new 2018 ROUSH Phase 1 Supercharger kit for the V8-powered 2018 Mustang GT.
Thanks to a larger 2.65L front-feed design and hours of development, the new ROUSH Performance Phase 1 Supercharger delivers 700 horsepower to the Mustang GT. It’s backed by a three-year, 36,000-mile limited warranty when installed by a ROUSH authorized dealer or an Automotive Service Excellence-certified technician.
“Our teams collaborated to create the most rigorously engineered and high performing supercharger system on the market today,” said Jack Roush, Chairman of the Board of Roush Enterprises. “The combination of the 2018 5.0-liter engine and our all-new, fully integrated 2018 Phase 1 Supercharger system yields simply incredible, no-compromise performance.”
In addition to 700 horsepower, the supercharger is capable of 610 lb-ft of torque at 12 psi of boost on 91-octane fuel for either manual or automatic transmissions. The kit is part of ROUSH Performance’s TVS (Twin Vortices Series) line.
“It took over a year and thousands of hours to bring this new ROUSH Performance supercharger kit to market, involving feasibility studies, CAD and CAE, design and development,” said Roush. He added that as part of the company’s industry-leading testing protocol, the system was “rigorously tested through 17 million cycles at wide-open throttle.”
The kit comes with all installation hardware and exclusive performance calibration. ROUSH Performance offers an industry leading warranty with its Phase 1 Supercharger system because the individual parts have been designed and tested at the component level for extreme durability, reliability and emissions compliance.
