The tuning community is making tremendous strides with the new 5.0L ROUSHcharger®. We’ve recently heard from Jim D’Amore III at JDM Engineering who has been running a 2011 ROUSH® Mustang in NMRA Drag Racing competition this season with great success winning the Super Stang championship. Thanks to the tremendous power generated from the ROUSHcharger kit, the car has already been in the 9.9-second range at 138 mph.
D’Amore reported that this was on 17 pounds of boost, but wanted to keep the car slower than 10.0-seconds for the race season (the legal limit for the roll cage). Since then, they have installed a larger balancer pulley creating 20 psi of boost and have picked up another 40 horsepower and are now running in excess of 700 ponies under the hood. The team’s prediction is that the car should soon be running in the 9.65-second range at 140 mph.
