Roush’s Supercharger Kit Boosts Mustang GT To 700 HP For Less Than $8k

2018 Ford Mustang Roush Phase 1 Supercharger Kit

The Mustang is an iconic nameplate and while the 2018 model doesn’t redefine Ford’s pony car, it is definitely an improvement in all aspects. Even though the Mustang GT’s 460-hp 5.0-liter V8 looks perfectly adequate, Roush has something for those who want more.

The Phase 1 Supercharger Kit raises the Mustang GT’s power figures to 700 hp and 610 lb-ft of torque. That’s more than the Porsche 911 GT2 RS, Cadillac CTS-V and Lamborghini Huracan Performante. The new pack then, raises the Mustang GT to supercar levels.

The package adds Roush’s R2650 TVS supercharger, which is a roots-style positive displacement forced induction system. To get the pony car to that kind of power, it’s operating at 12 psi on 91 octane fuel. The full kit also adds an all-aluminum intercooler and full-face radiator, a high-flow induction system and a new engine calibration.

The best part about Roush’s system, though, is that it comes with a 3-year/36,000-mile Limited Powertrain Warranty. That should give owners the peace of mind to use their tuned Mustang as often as they wish. Plus the sound of the engine, which you can enjoy below as the vehicle gets tested on a dyno, is divine.

The same recipe has been used on Roush’s JackHammer, which boasts 710 HP, though while the latter costs $14,765, the Phase 1 Supercharger Kit costs just $7,699.99. .

Roush has made some pretty impressive kits before, but the tuning company claims its new package is the highest rated Phase 1 Supercharger it’s ever made.

So, if you thought the 707 HP Dodge Challenger Hellcat was a bargain at under $70,000, then the Roush-tuned Mustang, which goes for less than $43,000 all in, is an absolute steal.

    rear lights look great, color looks very cool, and the specs and the price seems good too, especially considering it coming with that warranty.

  • khc

    I’d bet that warranty only covers the supercharger and related parts, while few, if any, of the stock engine’s internal components or driveline are designed to withstand repeated use of that kind of boost and increased horsepower. Now, let’s think about what the actual cost of that upgrade should be.

  • But yeah sadly it will remained Roush Mustang, it’s not officially sanctioned by Ford. But this upgrade makes Shelby American or Hennessey upgrade sounds like rip off!

  • Paul Webster

    Roush is very reputable. The engine is a true gem. Now how about some 700HP drivers ed classes for the buyers?
