      Product Information

      Features, Description, Reviews, Q&A, Specs & Installation


      • 290 Horsepower, 345 Lb/Ft Torque
      • V-3 Self Lubricating Supercharger
      • Satin Trim
      • 7-9 PSI at Red-Line
      • CARB EO # D-213-17
      • Fits 1996-1997 4.6L GT Mustangs


      More Power! The stock 1996-1997 GT Mustangs came with a healthy 215 Horsepower and 265 lb/ft of Torque from the factory, but after installing a Vortech System you will be planting a ground pounding 290 Horsepower and 345 lb/ft of Torque to the pavement. That is 75 more horsepower over stock!

      Complete Kit. This Vortech Mustang Supercharger System comes with all the required parts needed to upgrade your pony to a snarling beast. The kit features fuel management upgrades including a high-flow fuel pump, and a fuel management unit (FMU).

      Application. This Satin Vortech Supercharger System is specifically designed for use on the 1996 to 1997 4.6L V8 Mustang GT.

      Please Note. 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.

      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.

      Will it fit in a 1998

      • 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.

      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.

      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.
