    Well hmm, 700hp supercharger from Ford/Roush that will fit my GT and not void the warranty. Hmm


    Updated with article from Autoblog:

    2018-2019 Ford Mustang GT finally gets the official Ford supercharger
    700 horsepower with a warranty

    Back in 2017, Ford Performance announced it would have a supercharger kit available for the refreshed 2018 Ford Mustang GT. It promised 700 horsepower and 610 pound-feet of torque, and was due in early 2018, but nothing came of it. Thankfully, it seems to have simply been delayed, because the supercharger system is now on sale and available for not just 2018, but 2019 Mustang GTs, too.

    The kit for these latest Mustangs delivers on the 700 horsepower with a 2.65-liter TVS positive displacement supercharger that delivers 12 psi of boosted air to the engine, along with new fuel rails, injectors, an air-to-water intercooler and a bigger throttle body. Impressively, the kit is emissions compliant in all 50 states.

    All this can be yours for $7,699. That's just for the kit alone, which you can install yourself. But if you want the 3-year/36,000-mile warrantyon the parts in the kit, you'll have to have it installed by a Ford dealer or ASE-certified technician, which will surely add some labor cost. Also, this supercharger system is only compatible with normal Mustang GTs, not the Bullitt edition Mustang.

    I will probably end up getting a Whipple anyway. The warranty is nice though.

    Those numbers are based on crank horsepower. You have to take in account for the drivetrain loss which is roughly 12-15% (heard different numbers so I did an estimate). Angry50 stated wheel horsepower, which is the amount that your car will put to the ground.

    yes the roush tune is going to be soft. NA e85 cars will probably give you a hard time, especially if manual. Like i said depends on goals. if a warranty is number 1 for you then it would be best to leave it alone

    600 to 625 whp considering the Roush tune (conservative and flaky) with little room for growth. If you want a quick car with warranty this is a good path. I sill have the original Supercharger on mine but everything else has been replaced which does void any warranty.

    He has 18.. might still be too early to tell but this seems to be limited potential according to some tuners. so if plan to upgrade it seems its not worth it.. a lot of people going whipple stage 1 as they offer a warranty.

    Not surprising. I’ve moved away from everything but the supercharger. VMP tune now. Whipple has done a great job with their stuff. Likely a better choice.

    I am getting the ford supercharger on my car which I ordered last week. They have a new tune which supposedly ups the HP and some trans tuning.

    Won't find out till May.

    i seen some posts about the changes an aftermarket tune will still yield more power and faster times. from what i have seen the heat exchanger and the inlet are limiting factors if you decide to make more power.

    saying an auto 18+ NA tuned for E85 will give a factory roush car a tough way to go.

    Really...? WORST case scenario, there is still 100hp delta between the NA car and the Roush car. Unless the guy driving the Roush has never driven a car before, and the NA driver is Mario Andretti, it won't be a close race.

    you havent seen reality.. Roush tune delivers power soft. Plus if you have a Roush car with manual vs an A10 E85 car. my money is on the NA. id bet an A10 roush car would have a tought time against a bolt on E85 car.

    This is not anything new right? I have a 16 with a 670 Roush. Hasn't a 700 been available on the Roush site for the 18+ for quite a while now?

    I have a Roush supercharger on a 2019. I think it is a no brainer to retain your warranty. Also, for the amount of hp, it is relatively cheap. I have had the supercharger for two months now. It is plenty fast. So far on the kill list is a Corvette and a Charger Hellcat. Both were roll ones at about 20 to 30 mph

    "retain" you get a roush warranty but the dealerships are pretty friendly about it. but it all depends on goals. if warranty is #1 then yes its hard to beat. But if later you decide youre not worried about warranty your gonna be fighting uphill.
