Meet the 2012 Roush Stage 3 Ford Mustang

What do you get in a 2012 Mustang from Roush Performance that you don’t get from a sampling straight from the showroom floor?  LOTS.  Try taking the new 5.0-liter power plant and slapping a ROUSHcharger on it to let it breathe, bolstering 540HP and 465 ft/lbs of torque, up from the stock setting of 412hp.  Pushing 12psi of intercooled boost definitely helps this high-revving monster V8 step it up to the next level and provide smiles for miles.

Roush Performance isn’t just going to let it stop there, however.  True to their standards of enthusiast excellence, they are adding in some aggressive handling components, an aggressive body kit, and most importantly, Roush backs it up with a 3 year / 36K mile power train warranty!

A phased approach to the ROUSHcharger

roushcharger

It’s no secret that to get more “go” for your money, you have to stick to what works best and match up with the top players who can provide the means to an end.  The world of forced induction has seen a lot of players come and go, yet many have stuck it out to be proven, reliable resources in the Ford Mustang aftermarket.  One key player, ROUSH Performance, is back to bring another series of superchargers to the forefront and demands attention for the engineering & design behind the R2300 ROUSHcharger lineup.

It’s not just about a new series of blowers coming to market, it’s about a whole new approach to getting your 2005 – 2010 Mustang to be fed well and produce.  A base level “Phase 1″ ROUSHcharger starts out with a rating of 475hp /435tq and shows a sticker of about $5800.  “Phase 2″ takes it up a notch to 550hp / 500tq and hits a price point of about $6700.  Finally, for the serious enthusiast, ROUSH offers up “Phase 3″ which is a dual-belt setup pumping out 625hp / 565tq, slated to be yours for $13K.  That’s a lot of power!

All of these setups are (of course) covered by ROUSH Performance warranties and are made from the highest quality materials around.  Check out more in the official Press Release that follows.

2011 Ford Mustang DUB Edition

2011_mustang_DUB_edition

It has begun.  The 2011 Ford Mustang aftermarket looks like it’s going to be just as hot as, if not hotter, than that of the first generation (2005 – 2009 model years) S197 Mustang.  Ford, Roush, and automotive lifestyle magazine DUB have teamed up to spice up their very own 2011 Mustang variant, bringing about some increased attention to the car’s base point.  The car isn’t based up on the new 5.0 Mustang GT; it’s based upon the rev-sexy 3.7-liter V6 Mustang coupe.

2011 Mustang DUB Edition will serve as a kickoff to the many exciting projects Ford has coming down the pike.  Its many upgrades include tires, springs, body paneling, and lots more.  Couple this DUB edition along with the Nelly DUB edition 5.0 we saw just months ago, and you’ve got a great recipe for the DUB Magazine tour, set to traverse the entire country through November.

Keep reading to get all the specifics on the DUB Edition Mustang as well as a few other predicated thoughts from Ford in the press release after the jump.
