Lately the 2015 Mustang has received a lot of power-adder love from the aftermarket. We recently covered the installation of the as-delivered ProCharger HO kit with the stalwart P-1SC supercharger. That got us wondering what this kit would do with the next blower in the companyâ€™s rotationâ€”the D-1SC. Fortunately, our friends at Evolution Performance put together just such a combination.
A customer brought in a Guard Metallic 2015 Mustang GT with Performance Package and wanted a supercharger installed. As such, Evolution chose one of ProChargerâ€™s tuner kits with the aforementioned D-1SC head unit.
If you arenâ€™t familiar with the blower hierarchy at ProCharger, the P-1SC is good for up to 30 pounds of boost and up to 825 horsepower, while the D-1SC maxes out at 32 psi and 925 horsepower. Obviously the D-1SC takes things up a notch, but not so far that it’s not streetable.
â€œThe goal was to build a well-rounded street car for our customer with drivability and reliability the number one goal,â€ Fred Cook, of Evolution Performance, explained.
Opting for the tuner kit meant they could customize the system to further enhance its performance. To the supercharger they added a T-Bolt Clamp Upgrade Kit, a set of colder NGK spark plugs, a set of Injector Dynamics 100 lb/hr fuel injectors, a JMP Chip & Performance Fuel Max fuel pump voltage booster, a 170-degree thermostat, and a Flash Power programmer serving as the conduit for a custom tune.
While custom tuning a power-adder 2015 Mustang is a bit more complex due to the new programming inside the TriCor PCM, Evolution has long had the support Lund Racing to calibrate its high-performance machines.
â€œWhen you have the best Ford calibrator in the businessâ€”Jon Lund of Lund Racingâ€”the challenges are minimal,â€ Fred said.
With the Evolution-spec ProCharger system in place and Jonâ€™s tune in the PCM, this 2015 Mustang GT put down some impressive rear-wheel numbers. Watch it run on the dyno right hereâ€¦
â€œWeâ€™re very happy with the results and so is the customer,â€ Fred added. â€œThe car drives great and the power is very linear.â€

The dyno numbers don’t make sense. HP an TQ do not meet at 5252.
