2011 Ford 5.L TiVCT Supercharger Now Available
First displayed the past weekend at the annual Woodward Dream Cruise, the new supercharger is Ford Racing's first power upgrade component for the new 5.0 engine.
"Superchargers are the ultimate in power upgrades for Mustang enthusiasts," said 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."
"In fact we had the whole engineering background of the engine right from initial concept," Goddu added. "With that knowledge base, and extensive collaboration across the team, we are able to offer a top-notch supercharger, induction kit and the optimum calibration. This results in great power, drivability and durability."
"After more than 100 hours of accelerated durability testing, the entire Ford Racing package performed flawlessly," Dev Saberwal, Ford Racing's lead calibration engineer, said in a statement for the press. "Ford Racing performance parts are subjected to extensive testing to ensure optimum performance across a broad range of conditions."
The supercharger comes as a complete package, and it's available in three levels: a 525 hp kit with a 12/12 warranty (MSRP $7,199 in black and $7,799 in polished chrome), a 624 hp kit (MSRP $7,499 black and $8,099 polished chrome) and a tuner kit (MSRP $6,499 black and $7,099 polished chrome), allowing 2011 Mustang owners to boost the performance of their cars.
