Any vehicle that has lasted 50-plus years of production, has undergone six generational shifts, and has stood tall in the face of change numerous times is clearly built to last. The Ford Mustang checks all of the aforementioned boxes, and many automotive history enthusiasts enjoy studying the pony car’s continuous story through its various engine options that have come and gone over the last five decades and change.
The Mustang is part of the muscle car genre, but the pony car did not get its muscle until the Ford Motor Company implemented the famed Windsor 5.0L V8 engine midway through the First Generation. Beginning in 1968 (with the exception of the 1980 and 1981 models) and all the way through 1995, the 302 cubic inch 5.0L engine became the primary V8 motor for Ford Mustangs. Shortly after the dawn of the S197’s refresh, the 5.0L engine made its return under the “Coyote” nameplate.
The Coyote motor packs a powerful punch straight from the factory, but in order to squeeze every ounce of potential out of their V8 engines, many GT owners elect to invest in aftermarket Mustang 5.0L superchargers at some point or another. Ford Mustang 5.0L superchargers are tasked with compressing freshly drawn in air above atmospheric pressure and then forcing it into the engine. From there, the compressed air mixes with a heavy influx of fuel, which enables the Mustang engine to perform like never before!
Because muscle car drivers want instant results, Mustang 5.0L superchargers are one of the most popular aftermarket upgrades for performance drivers and thrill seekers alike. Unlike many of the inexpensive upgrades that offer gradual improvements, Mustang 5.0L superchargers provide gains in both horsepower and torque instantaneously, while offering an instant throttle body response as well. If you drive a GT, you are already ahead of the pack as soon as your car rolls off of the assembly line, but you can accomplish even more with a new Mustang 5.0L supercharger!
The ability to produce additional power while operating at lower speeds is one of the biggest benefits in which Ford Mustang 5.0L superchargers offer. Additionally, unlike turbochargers, Mustang 5.0L superchargers are driven by the crankshaft, which means that the motor will not suffer from any inherent lags of turbo. The instant gains in both horsepower and torque far outweigh any cost concerns, and your new Mustang 5.0L supercharger will allow your pony car to reach new heights both on the roadway or the track as soon as you turn the key.
Whether you are active on the race circuit or if you are someone that simply likes going fast, you cannot go wrong with a new Mustang 5.0L supercharger!
