With all the excitement about the Coyote and EcoBoost combinations in the latest Mustang, it would be easy to overlook the fact that there is still a V-6 Mustang. Fortunately, the centrifugal supercharger gurus at ProCharger did not forget about the 3.7-liter Mustang. In fact, the company has created an intercooled supercharger system thatâ€™s ready to pump up your base Mustang with 8 pounds of boostâ€”and even more if you add the supporting hardware.
â€œWe took a clean sheet approach to this new 2015 platform, and created not only the most powerful supercharger system out there, but one that is as easy to install as the previous 2011-14 system,â€ says the company. â€œThat is correct, as always, no cutting, drilling, bending, tweaking, prying, or whatever is needed to install this all-new ProCharger 3.7-liter supercharger system! This system comes boxed up, 100-percent ready to bolt-on and go! (Even down to the engine ECU programing.)â€
By installing this kit, ProCharger is promising horsepower gains of 50 to 60 percent with only 8 pounds of boost. If you want even more power, you can choose a tuner kit. When you opt for the tuner kit, youâ€™ll need to supply the necessary tuning and fuel system upgrades to support additional power. Of course, if you want to step things up, you might want to consider the larger intercooler option as well.
â€œSince we do know there will be those that push the boost levels on these 3.7-liters way up with the use of race fuel or E85, the 1,200-horsepower intercooler option is calling your name. So for those of you ordering tuner kits at elevated boost levels, we have the plug-and-play intercooler solution ready for you out of the gate,â€ the company added. â€œBoth the standard intercooler and the 1,200-horsepower units feature the highest quality, American-crafted intercooler cores, and lightweight sheetmetal end tanks. Charge cooling is kept at an absolute maximum, while keeping flow levels high, and weight down.â€
Besides the intercooler upgrade, other options include quieter helical gear drives (for P-1SC-1 and D-1SC head units), larger D-1SC or F-1C superchargers, and polished or black finishes on the blower and bracketry.
ProCharger says these new 2015 Mustang V-6 kits will be shipping soon, and we can’t wait to see how they perform.
