      More Power! The stock 1986 to 1993 5.0L Mustangs came with a decent 225 Horsepower and 275 lb/ft of Torque from the factory, but after installing a Vortech Street Boost System you will be planting a ground pounding 275 Horsepower and 344 lb/ft of Torque to the pavement. That is 50 more horsepower over stock!

      Complete Kit. This Vortech Mustang Street Boost Supercharger System comes with the fuel management unit and all the required parts needed to upgrade your pony to a snarling beast.

      Application. This Satin Vortech Supercharger System is specifically designed for use on the 1986-1993 5.0L V8 LX or GT Mustangs.

      Please Note: Vortech Supercharger System are built to order by Vortech for our customers. Because of this there can be a 5 to 7 day lead time on orders. Technical Note: Inter-cooler is not included.

        Let the Boost begin!

        This kit is a great entry into the supercharged 5.0 world. I installed this on a 91 Lincoln Mark 7. The install is straight forward and relatively easy for a competent home mechanic with a good tool set. I installed mine with a UPR power pipe and the Vortech bypass kit. This kit really pulls hard and puts the power down!

        Make sure all your parts are in the box before you start!

        Although missing parts and a seemingly long wait to receive...i am satisfied with my purchase. Made a big difference power wise. The thing I am most dissapointed in is that it was missing parts. You would think for almost $2k they would at least send you everything you paid for. There are also modifications you need to make to your engine that are not mentioned in the instructions, which in my opinion need to be updated.

      Questions & Answers (10 answers)

      5 Top Rated Questions

      Will this kit work on a car with under drive pulley‘s? will the pulley still bolt on the crank?

      Can I make 400 wheel with a stock forged internals engine ?

      Does this exceed the dimensions of the stock motor past the side of valve cover or above intake? I swapped the motor out of a 91 got into a 92 Miata and am curious as to how much I will expect to have to cut out of the hood

      • This will extend past the valve cover. At this time we do not have an exact measurement of how far past the valve cover this extends.

      What does it mean by it comes with a fuel management unit? does it come with a chip with a tune that will run this kit on a stock motor safely until it is custom tuned on a dyno?

      • The Fuel management unit or FMU that is included with the Vortech Street Boost Supercharger System is just a module that handles the fuel flow, it does not effect the tune. This kit does not come with a tune and would need to be dyno tuned once everything is installed.

      What size injectors is recommended to use with this kit?

      • The Vortech Street Boost Supercharger System included FMU (Fuel Management Unit) is actually set up for a factory application using 19LB injectors.

      Is the 5 to 7 psi the same charger as the 8 to 10 psi vortech one with a different pulley on it? I have heads, cam, intake, bigger throttle body, bamma chip, 24lb. injectors, bigger fuel pump and a few other upgrades. Will this kit work for me or do I need something with more boost? I'm not looking for a race car just something a little more fun. 1 answer
      do you have to remove the intake to install this? i have a 1990 mustang gt and i am planing on putting on a new intake. i just wanted to know if i should spend the money on a new intake or just wait until i have the supercharger.
