Edelbrock Supercharger Boosts the Ford Mustang GT to 732hp
The 2015 and 2016 Ford Mustang GT is powered by a 5.0L V8 which delivers 435 horsepower and 400lb-ft of torque in stock form, making this newest Mustang GT the most powerful of its kind in the 50+ years that the pony car has been on sale. The “problem” is that the most powerful stock Mustang GT ever falls short of the higher end muscle cars like the 640 horsepower Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 or the 707 horsepower Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat, forcing Mustang owners to turn to the aftermarket when they want to keep up with the cross-town rivals.
The latest big power package for the 2015-2016 Ford Mustang GT comes from the folks at Edelbrock, who can lift the output of your 5.0L from 435 horsepower to 732 horsepower with a relatively short list of new components.
Edelbrock E-Force for the New Mustang GT
Edelbrock has rolled out a pair of E-Force supercharger packages for the 2015 and 2016 Ford Mustang GT in the form of the Stage 1 and Stage 2 Street Systems.
The Stage 1 Street System for the 2015-2016 Mustang GT adds the Edelbrock E-Force supercharger with an integrated intake manifold, the unique Edelbrock Dual Pass Three Core air-to-water intercooler and a tuning device loaded with an engine tune designed to lift the output from 435 horsepower and 400lb-ft of torque to 690 horsepower and 588lb-ft of torque. Looking around online, it looks like you can find the Stage 1 kit in the range of $6,800-7,200.
The Stage 2 kit includes all of the components of the Stage 1 kit, but it adds a larger throttle body, and cold air intake system, a high volume fuel pump and 60lb fuel injectors. I’ve not been able to find retail prices online, but we know that the Stage 2 package lifts the output to 732 horsepower and 690lb-ft of torque.
Since the Edelbrock E-Force supercharger is not sold through Ford Performance, I imagine that the Edelbrock unit might void your factory drivetrain warranty, but Edelbrock does include a free 3-year/36,000 mile limited warranty that covers any problems caused by the Stage kit components.
If you own a 2015 or 2016 Ford Mustang GT and you would like to increase the output to figures above those of the stock competitors - contact the folks at Edelbrock for more information on using their E-Force supercharger to pack 732 horsepower under the hood of your pony car.
