Ford Racing’s new 2011 Mustang GT superchargers

Ford Racing’s new 2011 Mustang GT superchargers

Over the weekend at the Woodward Dream Cruise, Ford Racing announced three new reasons to want one of their new 2011 5.0-liter Mustangs. You can now buy your choice of three different bolt-on superchargers from Ford Racing. These 2.3-liter twin-screw assemblies will give your pony some serious horsepower upgrades, with the top-end kit producing 624 horsepower and 536 lb-ft of torque!

The new supercharger is Ford Racing’s first power upgrade component for the new 5.0 engine. It was developed by Ford Racing engineers, in close collaboration with Ford Motor Company’s powertrain engineers, Team Mustang, and key partners in Roush and Whipple. The supercharger is being seen for the first time Saturday at the annual Woodward Dream Cruise in the Ford Mustang Alley display.

“Superchargers are the ultimate in power upgrades for Mustang enthusiasts,” said 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. Having that knowledge base to work from is a huge advantage.

“In fact we had the whole engineering background of the engine right from initial concept,” Goddu added. “With that knowledge base, and extensive collaboration across the team, we are able to offer a top-notch supercharger, induction kit and the optimum calibration. This results in great power, drivability and durability.”

“After more than 100 hours of accelerated durability testing, the entire Ford Racing package performed flawlessly” reports Dev Saberwal, Ford Racing’s lead calibration engineer, “Ford Racing performance parts are subjected to extensive testing to ensure optimum performance across a broad range of conditions.”
