Roush Performance Debuts 600-HP Supercharger for 2018 F-150
Roush Performance and Ford Performance team up to offer V8 enthusiasts a heck of a high-performance package!
That just sounds like a heck of a lot of performance, huh? But, is there such thing as too much horsepower? Absolutely not!
If you’re in the market for a 2018 Ford F-150 with the 5.0-liter V8 engine you’ll soon be able to pump the stock horsepower figure way, way up, courtesy of the speed-obsessed engineers of Ford Performance and Roush Performance.
Ford Performance and Roush, with a successful working relationship that goes back more than two decades, are the foremost experts on Ford powertrains. As a result, this new supercharger kit is backed by a warranty and the vast support network of both automotive powerhouses. More importantly, and as it typically applies to licensed Roush products installed by approved technicians — the installation of this kit does not void the F-150’s manufacturer warranty.
The supercharger kit is specially designed to work with the 5.0-liter V8’s new port and direct injection fuel system. The 2018 F-150 version (also available for Mustang) provides 640 horsepower and 600 lb.-ft. or torque at 12 psi of boost on 93 octane fuel.
“Our teams collaborated to create the most highly engineered, tested and performing supercharger kit on the market,” said Jack Roush, chairman, board of directors, Roush Performance. “The combination of the 2018 5.0-liter engine and our all-new, fully integrated 2650 supercharger system yields simply incredible, no-compromise performance.”
For those who prefer to tackle this as a DIY project, the kit comes with all installation hardware and an exclusive performance calibration. That being said, the new supercharger is warrantied only when installed by a Ford dealer or an Automotive Service Excellence-certified (SAE) service technician.
