Edelbrock’s S550 Mustang Claims Victory at Eaton TVS Supercharger Throwdown
Edelbrock’s E-Force R2650 Supercharger helps this 2018 Mustang produce enough power to rip off a blistering 9.27-second pass.
People are doing amazing things with S550 Mustangs these days, particularly 2018-2019 model year cars equipped with the 3rd gen Coyote. These motors have proven time and time again that they can handle prodigious amounts of boost and churn out eye-watering numbers on the dyno. Owners have plenty of supercharger and turbo options to choose from as a result. But as we saw at the EATON TVS Supercharger Throwdown in Atlanta, Georgia, you can’t count out one of the most legendary names in the performance car business.
We’re talking, of course, about Edelbrock. A company that’s been churning out performance parts almost as long as hot rods have existed. Their latest and greatest in that long line of success is the Edelbrock E-Force R2650 Stage Two supercharger kit for the 2018-2019 Mustang. And instead of just talking the talk about this exciting product, Edelbrock went out and proved it on April 4-7 during the 11th Annual Scoggin-Dickey Parts Center NMRA/NMCA All-Star Nationals at Atlanta Dragway.
It was there that driver Brian Devilbiss took home the gold in the Eaton TVS class. Which is limited to cars with late-model engines modified with any brand of TVS supercharger. Devilbiss didn’t just edge out the competition to secure a win, either. He ripped off a blistering 9.27-second pass to completely bury his opponent, who managed only an 11.90.
“We’re very pleased with the performance of our new E-Force R2650 TVS Superchargers this past weekend,” said Don Barry, President and CEO of Edelbrock. “These kits are designed for enthusiasts who want to get the most out of their vehicles through an easy-to-install package. The wins speak for themselves and once again demonstrate our never-ending commitment to creating the highest quality performance products.”
Edelbrock’s E-Force Supercharger System offer up 2.65-liters of displacement and comes in Stage 1 and Stage 2 configurations. Stage 1 kits are 50-state street legal. Even better, they come with everything you need. From the blower to the intercooler, a 90mm throttle body, and everything in between. That alone will net you an impressive 623 horsepower and 510 ft-lbs of torque at the wheels.
Stage 2 kits come with everything the Stage 1 includes. Plus a larger air intake, 103mm throttle body, and 113mm mass airflow sensor housing. Devilbiss’ Mustang put down a ridiculous 961 hp and 869 lb-ft using this setup and running on E85.
Impressive results, indeed. So if you’re looking to add serious power to your 2018-2019 Mustang, Edelbrock has great way to do it!
