LIVONIA , Mich. (May 17, 2006) - It's hard to believe since the Ford GT already generates 550 horsepower right from the factory, but the engineers at ROUSH Performance have developed a replacement pulley kit that can add an additional 25 rear wheel horsepower to an already high-performance supercar.
The replaces the stock supercharger pulley and first sheave FEAD belt (Front End Assembly Drive) with a smaller diameter ROUSH GT pulley. This increases the speed of the supercharger, which causes an increase in the amount of airflow and equates to greater engine output. Though results will vary, typical performance gains are around 25 horsepower and 25 lb.-ft. of torque at the rear wheels over the stock configuration.
The ROUSH GT Pulley Kit comes complete with the smaller diameter pulley, a replacement first sheave FEAD belt, two quarts of S/C gear case oil, a front cover to bearing plate sealant and complete installation instructions. The kit fits all 2005-2006 model year Ford GT's.
With a suggested retail of .76, the ROUSH GT Pulley Kit is a small price to pay for GT owners who want to be sure that theirs is ranked among the fastest on the planet. The part number is 401532 and more information can be found online at .
