ROUSHcharger Tuner Kit for the 2011 Ford Mustang GT

Ford Mustang GT

Roush Performance Products has launched the 5.0L ROUSHcharger Tuner Kit for the 2011 "Ford Mustang GT". Shedding off the initial output ratings of 412 hp from the 5.0-liter Mustang, the engine now produces 550 hp on pump gasoline with more than 470 lb-ft of torque.

Also 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. 5.0L ROUSHcharger Tuner Kit has been priced at $5,999.00 and is available now.

Earlier this week, Ford Racing rolled out the official information on the Ford Racing/Whipple supercharger packages for the "2011 Ford Mustang GT" and last night, the folks at Roush Performance of Livonia formally dropped the specs on their new supercharger setup for the 2011 5.0L.

The 2011 Ford Mustang GT Roush supercharger currently comes in just one form – the 5.0 ROUSHcharger Tuner Kit – and there are a variety of differences between this new package and the kits offered by Ford Racing. The up-side to the Roush kit for the 2011 Mustang GT is that in this form, it offers 550 horsepower at 7psi of boost where the Ford Racing/Whipple kit offers just 525hp and at the same time, the Roush kit carries an MSRP over a thousand dollars lower. However, this new Roush kit DOES NOT maintain the factory engine warranty where the Ford Racing entry-level (525hp) kit not only maintains the warranty, but comes with a 12-month, 12,000 mile warranty of its own. Another advantage of the Roush Tuner Kit for the 2011 Mustang GT is the company’s statement that this kit can be tuned to make over 600 horsepower with an upgraded fuel system and bottom end (engine internals) along with a smaller pulley.
