In its stock form, the naturally aspirated 5.0 liter Twin Independent Variable Camshaft Timing (Ti-VCT) powerplant offers 412 hp and a maximum torque of 390 lb-ft. However, there will always be some who want more.
“Since the day Ford announced the new 5.0L engine for the 2011 Mustang, people have been asking, “What is ROUSH going to do with that engine? When will the ROUSHcharger be available? The answer to those questions is finally available.” stated the press release.
This is why Roush is now offering a supercharger (or ROUSHcharger, as the company likes to called its kits) that bring the unit to 550 hp and a maximum torque of 470 lb-ft using normal pump gasoline.
The 5.0L ROUSHcharger is based on the TVS2300 ROUSHcharger. It comes with a 90mm pulley and generates an estimated seven pounds of boost. The kit includes 47 lb. fuel injectors, high-flow fuel rails, a high-flow air lid and a twin 60mm throttle body. It also comes with a heavy-duty Roush tensioner for the FEAD belt.
“While the new Ford five-liter engine offers amazing performance right from the factory, and the new ROUSHcharger will kick it up a level,” said Jack Roush, motorsport legend and chairman of ROUSH Enterprises. “Our engineering team has worked hard to deliver a product that will satisfy the demands of the ROUSH customer on an extremely tight deadline, and they have come up with another great solution for a powertrain upgrade.”
