2018 Mustang: Roush Performance Unveils 700-HP Supercharger Kit
Roush is upping the ante on the 2018 Mustang before it goes on sale, and so far, we’re liking what we’re seeing.
The 2018 Mustang promises to be an excellent performer. Fitted with special Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires and rocking a 0-60 mph time of under four seconds, the upcoming pony car will likely be remembered as one of the greats.
But if you’re looking for something bolder, check out Roush Performance’s new supercharger kit. The new unit is specially designed to work with the GT’s revised 5.0-liter V8. Once equipped, the car cranks out 700 horsepower and 610 pound-feet of torque at 12 psi of boost on 93 octane fuel. Those numbers are the same for manual or automatic transmission cars.
“Our teams collaborated to create the most highly engineered, tested and performing supercharger kit on the market,” says Jack Roush, chairman of Roush Performance. “The combination of the 2018 5.0-liter engine and our all-new, fully integrated 2650 supercharger system yields simply incredible, no-compromise performance.”
Since it was developed closely with the Blue Oval, it does not void new vehicle warranties. Roush’s kit comes with all installation hardware and an exclusive performance calibration. Plus, the kit itself is warrantied when installed by Ford dealer or ASE-certified service technicians.

“Ford and Roush have teamed up on performance for years on and off the track,” says Doug White, Ford’s Global Performance Parts Manager. “This new supercharger is another great example of our innovation in performance, greatly improving horsepower and torque so people can enjoy two of our most iconic vehicles even more.”
The 2018 Mustang may not be on sale yet. But when it is, you’ll be able to satisfy all of your horsepower needs! The supercharger kit is also available for the V8-powered F-150. It goes on sale early 2018 through Ford dealers, Ford Performance Warehouse Distributors, and Roush Performance dealers.
