    Ford Gives Mustang GT 5.0 OEM Supercharger Kit

    Ford, stop being so damn cool... we are going to get used to this.

    Ford Racing is offering different supercharger setups for the Mustang 5.0. Wonder when BMW will do something like this for the M3 Click here to enlarge

    The three blower kits are 50-state-legal and are good for different levels of boosted power. The nine-psi option helps develop up to 624 horsepower on premium-octane fuel, while the lower model does 525 horsepower on seven psi. The supercharger is a twin-screw design and comes with requisite support modifications, including a new intake manifold, intercooler, belt, and higher-flowing fuel injectors.

    The third option is a Tuner Kit for racers and what Ford calls "extreme enthusiasts." There is no power figure associated with this selection, so we figure the ultimate performance numbers are left to the Mustang's owner. The forced-induction trio were revealed at the Woodward Dream Cruise and are available now.

    "Superchargers are the ultimate in power upgrades for Mustang enthusiasts," says 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."
    Specs:

    The specifications are listed below:

    The Ford Racing Supercharger 525hp Kit (M-6066-MGT525D) includes:
    -- 2.3L twin-screw supercharger assembly
    -- Intake manifold
    -- Complete air-to-liquid intercooler system
    -- Drive belt
    -- 47 lb./hr., high-impedance fuel injectors (M-9593-LU47)
    -- Ford Racing ProCal tool with performance calibration
    -- 12 month /12,000 mile warranty (when installed by a Ford or Lincoln dealer)
    -- Produces 525 SAE hp @ 6400 rpm and 470 SAE lb.-ft. @ 4200 rpm, at approximately 7 psi of boost with 93 octane fuel
    -- MSRP $7,199.00 (black) and $7,799.00 (polished chrome)

    The Ford Racing Supercharger 624hp Kit (M-6066-MGT624D) includes:
    -- 2.3L twin-screw supercharger assembly
    -- Intake manifold
    -- Complete air-to-liquid intercooler system
    -- Drive belt
    -- 47 lb./hr., high-impedance fuel injectors (M-9593-LU47)
    -- Ford Racing ProCal tool with performance calibration
    -- Produces 624 SAE hp @ 6900 rpm and 536 SAE lb.-ft. @ 4700 rpm, at approximately 9 psi of boost with 93 octane fuel
    -- MSRP $7,499.00 (black) and $8,099.00 (polished chrome)

    The Ford Racing Supercharger Tuner Kit (M-6066-MGT23TD) includes:
    -- 2.3L twin-screw supercharger assembly
    -- Intake manifold
    -- Complete air-to-liquid intercooler system
    -- Drive belt

    And positive displacement blowers were more prevalent...

    pretty cool find sticky. i read when the mustang was still coming out, that the coyote was not only set up to accept a supercharger easily, but also for a DI swap if needed for fuel economy reasons. ford really did their homework on this car and engine, if they can keep it up, they have a serious chance at winning back the american spirit.

    I think they already have, they just are doing an extremely good job all around.

    The person who want to go 7s? lol
    The gt500 is alot of money compared to the 5.0, however that block is made for boost. With the high CR of the 5.0, boost will be limited.

    This can be a long debate, but in my opinion i would go with the 5.0 and dump money into that to make it my own. more bang for the buck when buying and modding comes into consideration.

    I like the DOHC high-revving 5.0 over that supercharged truck motor, although it would be easier to get crazy power out of a GT500.

    The 5.0 is looking better and better, maybe I won't be able to hold out..... 2 turbo projects for the N54 have just disappeared for the time being, and it is pretty obvious which company is providing a more "mod-friendly" car.

    BMW needs a slap in the face.

    Quick questions...

    Did the 2010 Mustangs, both GT and GT500 have iron blocks, or only the GT500? Can this kit be installed in 2010's, if they were design for the 2011's?

    2011, both the GT and GT500 have a new aluminum block, right?

    Not sure about the GT, but the 2010 GT500 has an al block. That's how they were able to drop ~100lbs or so.

    I wonder if they can honor that warrany over to the BOSS 302 with the same supercharger setup?

    BOSS Comes stock 440 hp, now add the 2.3L blower.

    Supercharged truck motor? The DOHC 5.4 can also be found in the Ford GT! Also the 5.4 DOHC is pushing 800 plus HP.

    The 2010 Mustang GT has a carryover 4.6 SOHC 3v engine, so the new Ford Racing blower will not work. There are other Ford Racing superchargers offered for the SOHC 4.6 3v. The 2010 GT500 is the same carryover 5.4 Iron block. 2011 Mustang GT has the aluminum block DOHC 5.0 the GT500 has an aluminum block 5.4 DOHC.

    It is basically a truck motor, the 5.0 is a newer design not taken from the F150's.

    The new GT500 has an aluminum block though, how strong is it really?

    The high compression of the 5.0 will definitely hurt boost potential but low compression internals are already available. The performance when built will be a wash.

    I was not aware of a 5.4 DOHC. It is based off of the truck motor though, right? SOHC? To be honest I was never a fan of the Ford GT, didn't they have someone else develop the frame and then just drop one of their motors in?

    I have been in a GT500 around a track, and watched it from outside, and I was not that impressed with the supercharged, 5.4L V8.....

    To be honest the C5 z06 felt more radical, and it is rated "only" 405 crank hp, but that car is lighter/tighter overall.

    The Mustangs with their crappy balance and solid rear axle will never feel tight. Ford does a good job of masking it though.

    Ford didn't have anyone else develop the GT, it is an awesome car.

    The 5.4 is DOHC.

    Z06's are tigher, lighter, and better handling overall.

    The F150 did have a 5.4 sohc, not sure if it does any more. I'm not sure where the block is sourced from, but the GT500 has ford GT heads.

    I think you are referring to the SVT Lightning, SOHC, and 2 valve.

    The Lightning was a sohc as well, but if I'm not mistaken the late 90's F150 had a non supercharged sohc also.

    I would really reconsider before saying the 5.4 DOHC 32V is just a 'truck motor'. There are GT500s making 1000 whp twin turbo.

    Show respect where its due, there are not many motors that can double stock horsepower and survive.

    The GT500 motor is way more evolved than your average Ford Navigator motor, just look at the heads.
