The 2024 Ford Mustang is getting a new supercharger kit courtesy of Ford Performance.
With the regular 5.0-liter V-8, Ford claims the kit will raise horsepower from 480 to at least 800.
The supercharger debuts on the Ford Mustang FP800S concept, which previews a package of other Ford Performance parts.
Just because Dodge isn't building any more V-8 Hellcats doesn't mean Ford isn't interested in making new Mustangs with 800-plus horsepower. That's what's on the menu with the new Ford Performance supercharger kit, which debuts on the Ford Mustang FP800S concept at this year's SEMA show.
The Mustang's naturally aspirated 5.0-liter V-8 is good for 480 horses off the showroom floor. That figure rises to at least 800 horses with the Whipple 3.0-liter supercharger, which also comes with obligatory upgrades to the air and fuel systems. Ford says the kit is compatible with the automatic and manual transmission, and the company says a version that's specially designed for the Mustang Dark Horse is also on the way.
The supercharger kit is compliant with CARB regulations, and it comes with a three-year, 36,000-mile warranty from Ford Performance. The Mustang kit will be available next year, but a price hasn't been released.
Mustang FP800S Concept
Just like it did with the Ford F-150 FP700, the company has now revealed a similar treatment for its pony car. Not only does the Mustang FP800S concept have the new supercharger, but it has a Borla Extreme cat-back exhaust with four 5.0-inch tips. The concept also has a lowered ride height, carbon-fiber aero elements, and it's fitted with stronger half-shafts.
The supercharger kit is available separate from the FP800S package, which we think will make it to production. We especially like the Mustang concept's appearance, mixing white wheels and matching grille nostrils with a body-side stripe that looks appropriately racy.
