A storied history in powertrain development between ROUSH Performance and Ford Performance continues with a new state-of-the-art supercharger kit for the V8-powered 2018 Mustang GT and V8-equipped 2018 F-150.

ROUSH Performance and Ford Performance, with a successful working relationship that goes back more than two decades, are the foremost experts on Ford powertrains. This new supercharger kit is backed by a limited warranty and the vast support network of Ford Motor Company and ROUSH.

“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.”

Highlights   

  • ROUSH Performance and Ford Performance co-developed an all-new 2650 supercharger kit for the 5.0-liter V8 engine for the 2018 Mustang and F-150
  • Supercharger rated at 700 horsepower and 610 lb-ft of torque for Ford Mustang GT and 640 horsepower and 600 lb-ft of torque for Ford F-150
  • New kit is warrantied when installed by Ford dealer or an Automotive Service Excellence-certified service technician

The supercharger kit is specially designed to work with the 5.0-liter V8’s new port and direct injection fuel system. It’s rated at 700 horsepower and 610 lb-ft of torque at 12 psi of boost on 93 octane fuel for all 2018 Mustang GTs with either manual or automatic transmission. When fitted to a 2018 F-150, it provides 640 horsepower and 600 lb-ft.

The kit comes with all installation hardware and exclusive performance calibration.

“When you combine the efforts and expertise of two of the most respected names in racing and performance, you get a supercharger unmatched by any product on the market,” said Doug White, Global Performance Parts Manager, Ford Performance.

The new Ford Performance supercharger kit will be available in early 2018 through RoushPerformance.com and authorized distributors.
