The 2011 Mustang just got racier with the announcement today of an all-new 2.3 liter twin-screw supercharger.

Available for the first time to the public, the Ford Racing twin-screw unit can produce 624 horsepower SAE at 6,900rpm and 536 pound-feet SAE at 4,700rpm when mated to the all-new 5.0 liter 4V TiVCT V-8 engine.

"Superchargers are the ultimate in power upgrades for Mustang enthusiasts," George Goddu, Ford Racing Performance Group Manager said, adding that production calibration of the twin-independent variable cam timing was incredibly complex--taking engineers 19 months to perfect.

"After more than 100 hours of accelerated durability testing, the entire Ford Racing package performed flawlessly," said Dev Saberwal, Ford Racing's lead calibration engineer. "Ford Racing performance parts are subjected to extensive testing to ensure optimum performance across a broad range of conditions."

The supercharger is available in three levels including: a 525 horsepower kit with a 12/12 warranty; a 624 horsepower kit, and a tuner kit for racing and extreme enthusiasts.

The kits add 47 pounds to the weight of the car. The kits range in cost from $6,499 for black and $8,099 for polished chrome.
