The Ford Mustang 3.7 V6 doesn’t get as much love as its 5.0-liter counterpart , and for the most part, the less attention is warranted. But every so often, a V6 Mustang comes out of the woodwork and makes a name for itself.
One tuner that has found a soft spot for the V6 Mustang is ProCharger, which built a supercharger kit for the lesser ’Stang. The supercharger kit gave the Mustang a dramatic increase in output from the standard 305 horsepower and 280 lb/ft of torque all the way up to 475 horsepower from the muscle car’s 3.6-liter V6 engine.
Taking that one step further is Central Florida Motorsports, which fitted ProCharger’s supercharger kit on the Mustang and proceeded to smash the existing quarter-mile record - one that it already owned - for a 2011+ Mustang V6, covering the distance in just 11.20 seconds at 119 mph.
In order to achieve this remarkable time, the standard V6 Mustang by CFM went through a variety of changes, including the addition of ProCharger’s D1 centrifugal supercharger system producing 13 pounds of boost, as well as BBK long tubes, BBK offroad X, FRPP 4.10 gears, a Magnaflow "street" catback exhaust, an SCT custom tune, 80lb/hr injectors, a Driveshaft Shop aluminum shaft, and a Circle D 3,000 Billet Converter. These modifications gave the Mustang a dramatic increase in output from the standard 305 horsepower and 280 lb/ft of torque all the way up to 475 horsepower from the muscle car’s 3.6-liter V6 engine.
The car was also equipped with a new set of RaceStar wheels wrapped in Mickey Thompson ET Street Radial 295/55-15 wheels. There is also a Steeda adjustable control arm and BMR lower control arms.
