So does this supercharger kit add 345 ft/lbs of torque and 200 hp to whatever hp you currently have ? Or does it jump it 75 ft/lbs torque ? The description has me confused with the wording


  • Vortech reports Dyno numbers of 290 Horsepower and 345 lb/ft of Torque. That is an increase of 80 ft/lbs of torque, and 75 horsepower over stock.


Helpful (1)

so would this supercharger kit take the car from 215 hp to closer to 500 hp ? and from 265 lb/ft to closer to 550 or 600 ? or is this kit gonna take it from 215 hp to 290 and 265 to 345 ? Im misunderstanding the wording.


  • This supercharger will add around 75HP which would bring your car around 290 and upwards of 345 ft/lbs of torque.

can you put this on a 1998 Ford Mustang Gt ?


  • No, unfortunately this Vortech Supercharger is not compatible with the 1998 4.6L Mustang. That model year would need Vortech part# 4FH218-070L, as that Supercharger System will come with the correct fuel system components.

Is this A complete kit. Does it come with everything needed to bolt on and go? Or do I still need to get a tune, injectors, fuel pump etc. in addition to this kit?


  • This Vortech Supercharger System is 100% complete and will not require any additional components. If you would like to produce more power, you may opt for a custom dyno tune and some upgraded injectors, fuel pump, etc.


Helpful (0)

Why does this not work on 98 GT's?


  • The 1998 Mustang GT will require different fuel system components to work correctly. The part number for the Vortech kit that will work with the 1998 Mustang is Vortech part# 4FH218-070L.
