A phased approach to the 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.

The “Undefeated” Team from Classic Design Concepts (CDC) is set to put their SEMA special to the test in the 2010 Gumball 3000 rally race.  The “Weekend Warrior” Ford Mustang , which we saw enter the stage at SEMA, is no stranger to being a dualistic track and street terror.  “The concept behind the Weekend Warrior, which we unveiled at SEMA in 2009, was to build a street legal Mustang that could also double as a track car,” said George Huisman, president of Classic Design Concepts.

The Weekend Warrior Ford Mustang is well-poised to take on the field, with add-ons including, but not limited to: Ford Racing parts, upgraded rubber on all 4 corners, Baer braking, and Maximum Motorsports suspension components.

The Compilation of Ford Mustang Special Editions

2009 Ford Mustang

In case you’ve been living under a rock for the past oh say, 15 years, you’d sure to realize the Ford Mustang aftermarket is something that continues to sizzle on far beyond the dreams Carroll Shelby and Lee Iacocca ever imagined back in the 1960s.  The staggering number of late-model Mustang spin-offs is something that could be seen as awesome, inspiring, or even sometimes comical.  It’s quite daunting just how many flavors of the Ford Mustang there are.  What’s more, we’ve done our best to draft up a list for you to digest, observe, and most importantly–help continue to add to it where we’ve left out!

Ready for this bitter pill?  You better be, because we’re going to take a look at the comments to see if there are any we’ve missed (to date) and then also recruit you to help build the SN95, Fox, Mustang II, and Classic special edition lists.  We’ve got the page breaks ready, so let’s hear it!

It’s not uncommon to see a Ford Mustang set for duty as a weekend warrior at the track, being tweaked for road racing, or stalking the tree to make a few 1320 passes.  What we did find unique about the latest 2010 Unleashed video series installation is that somehow, J.B. Niday managed to turn a new 2010 Ford Mustang into a bona fide rally car.  You read it right–a rally car.  Serving as the managing director of Rally America, Niday set up the 2010 Mustang GT with a roll cage, racing seats, a rally computer, off-road tires, and a HID light bar in hopes of winning at the Ojibwe Forest Rally in Minnesota.  So how well did Niday’s 2010 rally Mustang perform?  You’ll have to check out the Press Release and watch the video to find out!

SEMA 2009 – the 2010 Cobra Jet Ford Mustang

2010 Cobra Jet Ford Mustang

2010 Cobra Jet Ford Mustang

Back in early September, we showed you a video of the 2010 Cobra Jet Ford Mustang making some passes for a test ‘n tune at the Milan Dragway.  During the early hours of the 2009 SEMA show this week in Las Vegas, Ford Racing pulled the coverings off the car and made its debut a kosher occurrence.  A mere 50 units are going to be produced by [the profitable] Ford Motor Company, so the scramble to get a hold of one of these 2010 CJ Mustang specimens will certainly thin out those with slow reaction times.  What’s so great about this car?  It’s a total turnkey racer straight from the Ford Racing catalog; it is equipped with a 5.4-liter V8 & a 3.4-liter Whipple supercharger; it is yet another capstone on the fortress of a legendary Ford Racing past.  Take a closer look at this winner of a drag-car and check out the full story in the Ford Press Release as well.
