2011 Ford Mustang GT 5.0 by Roush

Roush Performance and the Ford Mustang go hand in hand, so the more editions Ford decides to crank out for the Mustang, the harder at work Roush will be to make it that much better. Of course, following the release of the 2011 Mustang GT 5.0 , Roush has reacted with a new supercharger kit that blasts the horsepower from the standard 412hp to a monstrous 550hp with more than 470 lb.-ft. of torque. The new kit is priced at $5999 and includes a TVS2300 supercharger, an intercooler, higher-flow fuel rail and injectors, a larger throttle body, and a Roush airbox. The new kit will be available in September or October. However, don’t plan on ordering the kit and installing it yourself. It does come with a 90-day parts warranty, but does not come with a calibration or maintain the Ford factory engine warranty. Because of that, Roush recommends professional tuning and/or installation.

There will also be a certified model featuring the new supercharger coming out in 2011 as a 2012 model.

Press Release

Since the day Ford announced the new 5.0L engine for the 2011 Mustang, people have been asking, “What is ROUSH going to do with that engine? When will the ROUSHcharger be available?”

The answer to those questions is finally available. ROUSH has engineered a 5.0L ROUSHcharger Tuner Kit that can boost the horsepower on the 2011 Mustang upwards of 550 horsepower on stock pump gasoline with more than 470 lb.-ft. of torque. This 5.0L ROUSHcharger Tuner Kit (part number 421140) has a suggested retail price of $5,999.00 and is available for shipment now.

Many people got their first look at the 5.0L ROUSHcharger in the ROUSH display at Mustang Alley during the Woodward Dream Cruise. The display car got many double takes as people walked by, looked, and then realized that car was, in fact, a 2011 Mustang with a ROUSHcharger installed.

Based on the popular TVS2300 ROUSHcharger, the 5.0L ROUSHcharger Tuner Kit comes with a 90mm pulley and generates an estimated seven pounds of boost. Included in the kit are 47 lb. fuel injectors, high-flow fuel rails, a high-flow ROUSH air lid, and a twin 60mm throttle body. The heavy-duty ROUSH tensioner is included for the first FEAD belt.

This Tuner Kit includes a 90-day parts warranty, but does not come with a calibration or maintain the Ford factory engine warranty. Professional tuning and installation is recommended.

“While the new Ford five-liter engine offers amazing performance right from the factory, and the new ROUSHcharger will kick it up a level,” said Jack Roush, motorsports legend and chairman of ROUSH Enterprises. “Our engineering team has worked hard to deliver a product that will satisfy the demands of the ROUSH customer on an extremely tight deadline, and they have come up with another great solution for a powertrain upgrade.”

Orders for the 5.0L ROUSHcharger Tuner Kit are now being accepted by calling 1-800-59-ROUSH. Information can be found online at www.ROUSHperformance.com.

There will be a 5.0L ROUSHcharger Kit available this fall that will come complete with a ROUSH calibration and full warranty. Pricing and details to come.

That’s quite a sight to see under the hood. Though I’ve always liked the clean look of the stock 5.0’s engine bay...especially with the strut tower brace. Too bad they had to get rid of that to make room for the supercharger.

550hp is really strong, this supercharged car is absolutely great on places with flat roads. Even though I would like to have one I can’t afford one.
