ROUSH today announced that it has given the already powerful Shelby GT500 even more power. Currently, the Ford Shelby GT500 produces 500 horsepower. The tuner company added a new supercharger package that boosts output to an amazing 605 horsepower with a torque of 554 lb-ft of torque.
ROUSH engineers added a Ford Racing GT500 Supercharger which uses a new TVS roots-style. By increasing the amount of airflow, ROUSH engineers have added an extra 105 horsepower to the GT500 Supercharger.
The new package is now available from Ford Racing Technologies distributors or directly from ROUSH for an MSRP $5,600 horsepower.

FORD RACING GT500 SUPERCHARGER GIVES THE SNAKE MORE VENOM
Owners of the new Ford GT500 are justifiably proud of their car and proud of the 500 horsepower under the hood. Now the engineers at ROUSH and Ford Racing Technologies, the collective leaders in Ford powertrain development, have unveiled a new Ford Racing GT500 Supercharger which boosts the performance to 605 horsepower.
The new Ford Racing GT500 Supercharger pushes the horsepower to 605 with 554 lb.-ft of torque while keeping a 1-year/12,000 mile drivetrain warranty. The complete system also includes a cold air kit and a Ford Racing ProCal(TM) calibration tool.
This package is now available through Ford Racing Technologies distributors and directly from ROUSH Performance (online at http://www.roushperformance.com/ or telephone (800) 59-ROUSH). The MSRP is set at $5,600 (part number M-6066-SGT).
“Ford developed a magnificent engine with the creation of the 5.4-liter V-8 engine. They are able to pull 500 horsepower which is amazing for a street car and it’s no wonder it has quickly become one of the most sought-after Mustangs,” said Jack Roush. “But we thought we could get a little more out of that engine. In tandem, we were able to pull another 105 horsepower without compromising the warranty and I have no doubt that this new Ford Racing Supercharger will be in very high demand by owners of the Shelby GT500.”
The Ford Racing GT500 Supercharger is a new TVS roots-style technology and features a considerable improvement in both airflow and efficiency. The bottom line is the more airflow, the more power. Noteworthy is that this is the first application that will be incorporating this new technology, both on the OE and aftermarket side.
The cold air intake kit considerably reduces pressure drop across the stock air box and filter element. It comes with a high-flow, large 6-inch conical filter and the rotomolded airbox seals to the hood to reduce leakage. Again, the bottom line is less loss equals more airflow which results in more power.
