We know modern 5.0 engines love boost, but an updated Coyote engine in a new chassis deserves a new supercharger system, right? Thatâ€™s just what ProCharger has built for the latest Mustang.
â€œBuilt around it is a brand new and robust bracket system designed specifically for the 2015 Mustang engine bay, with the same quality and fit/finish youâ€™d expect from ProCharger,â€ says the company. â€œOur clean slate approach allows us to build supercharger systems with distinct advantages for our customers, and frees us from having to cut corners by trying to retrofit existing kits to the latest models. Our â€˜from the ground upâ€™ approach ensures reliability, reversibility, and of course, more horsepower!â€
The ProCharger for the 2015 Mustang will be offered in the base High Output system and the more powerful Stage 2 system. Based on the P-1SC supercharger, the HO kit shares the factory six-rib accessory drive and includes a large air inlet, and an air-to-air intercooler. It comes complete with tuning and larger fuel injectors. This system is said to install without altering the coolant hoses or fan.
If you want even more power, ProCharger will offer its Stage 2 system with a dedicated, eight-rib belt drive; an even larger intercooler; and your choice of supercharger head units up to the F-1R, which will support up to 1,225 horsepower! This kit should be available by January 15, 2015.
