If there is one thing that history has taught us, it is that shortly after the release of a new Mustang platform there will be a HUGE influx of new performance parts. So it is no surprise that companies such as Ford Racing are working on performance parts for the new S550 Mustang. FRPP plans to release a sneak peek of new S550 Mustang parts on the 15th of every month. Ford Racing Performance Parts recently released a sneak peek of their 2015 Mustang supercharger development.
In their leaked picture you can clearly see a 5.0L Coyote motor on the engine dyno. To me, one of the biggest surprises to see in the picture is Ford Racing’s departure from Whipple Superchargers in exchange for the TVS style blowers found in the Roush and VMP Supercharger Kits. Ford has been using the Whipple blowers for well over a decade now. They were featured on everything from complete kits to supercharger upgrades for 03-04 SVT Cobras.
I also noticed that the motor on the test stand lacks the “intake charge motion plates” Ford initially informed us the new 5.0L Coyote will be featuring. You can see them in the picture below. These charge motion control valve plates are part of the new 2015 Mustang’s revised intake system that will surely boost performance and horsepower numbers.
I’m thrilled that big name companies are already heavily working on performance mods for the new 2015 Mustang. With the higher flowing cylinder heads, improved camshaft design and many other internal modifications over previous 5.0L Coyote engines, performance mods, especially forced induction, will surely make even more impressive gains!
Stay tuned as we will bring you more updates about new up-and-coming performance mods for the 2015 Mustangs!
