LIVONIA, Mich. – ROUSH® Performance has always been the leader in powertrain performance and with the introduction of the new ROUSHcharger® R2300 it is possible for owners of any 2005 to 2009 Ford Mustang GT to inject up to 700 horsepower under the hood.
The new ROUSHcharger® R2300 will be available in a variety of packages to fit the needs from enthusiasts wanting a new complete kit with a warranty, those simply looking to get the maximum horsepower with a custom tune, and owners wishing to upgrade a car with an existing ROUSHcharger system. The new ROUSHcharger® R2300 was first used on the 2008 ROUSH P-51A™ Mustang vehicle builds to much acclaim.
For those willing to explore the wild side, the ROUSHcharger® R2300 is now sold separately allowing custom tuners to develop their own calibration which can push the horsepower anywhere from 510 to more than 700. This is the first time that ROUSH is offering specialty tuning firms the option of using their own calibrations and being creative with their tune on a ROUSHcharger®. This kit includes a cold air intake system, unique fuel rail with 52 lb.-hr. injectors, a dual 60 mm electronic throttle body, all hardware, brackets and instructions. With a one-year component warranty, this kit retails for $5,899 ().
Owners of an existing ROUSHcharger® system can upgrade to the ROUSHcharger® R2300 for $4,999 (). This kit includes several of the same components above but utilizes as many of the installed ROUSHcharger® components as practical to help reduce the upgrade cost. Customers will need to work with a custom tuner for maximum performance.
The ROUSHcharger® R2300 utilizes Eaton’s new Twin Vortices Series™ technology. The patented design on this supercharger system features a four-lobe rotor and high-flow inlet which greatly enhances thermal efficiency, higher volume capacity, and higher operational speeds.
"The gloves are off for the specialty tuners to get really creative with a ROUSHcharger® now," said Joe Thompson, general manager of ROUSH® Performance. "We’re excited to see what some of these guys can do with the new ROUSHcharger® R2300 and really explore the type of performance that this new unit is capable of. We’ve heard some numbers from a couple of exploratory installs already and I must say that they are very impressive."
The complete kit with a ROUSH®-backed 3-year/36,000 mile engine warranty will be available shortly. This version of the ROUSHcharger® R2300 is 50-state legal and rated at 510 horsepower and 510 lb.-ft. of torque. Included in the package is the complete ROUSHcharger® R2300 system featuring new upper and lower intake manifolds for the high capacity air-to-water intercooler and larger TVS™ supercharger. A custom ROUSH® calibration is included, as well as new fuel rails and high-flow 52 pound fuel injectors, a high-flow capacity fuel pump, as well as a dual electronic throttle body. A ROUSH® Cold Air Kit with a stylish carbon fiber clean air tube helps to dress up the engine bay and provides improved performance.
This kit also includes a ROUSH®-assembled short block with forged components such as a steel eight-bolt crankshaft, aluminum flywheel, aluminum pistons with increased dish to lower the compression from 9:8 to 8:6, and steel H-Beam connecting rods.
