The Roush Phase 1 TVS kit will be for the manual and automatic 2015 through 2017 GT owners out there who are tired of going slow and wanna step into an all-inclusive turnkey supercharger system from one of the most trusted names in the Mustang aftermarket. Now, the Phase 1 kit will be the company's entry-level TVS system and will result in 670 horsepower and 545 pound-feet of torque to the crank while using the included Roush calibration in 93 octane. However, interested buyers can also use a custom tune of their choosing if preferred. Now, the price point for the Phase 1 kit will hover right around $7,000 and the install will get a full three out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter, with a little bit more detail to come later in the video. Now, before we go over what is included here with the Phase 1 kit, let's briefly talk about what kind of power you can expect to the tires when using the Roush Phase 1 system on your S550 GT. As pointed out earlier, guys, Roush does give you advertised crank numbers when using their included calibration. Now that is important to mention because numbers might change slightly if you decide to go with an aftermarket tune or custom tune instead. Now, since this video is more of a general overview of the system, we don't have any in-house chassis dyno numbers for you. However, it has been my experience that drivetrain loss typically soaks up about 100 horsepower and roughly 80 foot-pounds of torque depending on your transmission. So, with that said, I would expect to see anywhere from just south of 600 horsepower to the tires and maybe just south of 500 pound-feet of torque to the tires again when using that included calibration in the Phase 1 system. But with that out of the way, let's break down some of the kit a little bit further. And obviously, we don't have much on the table with me in this video, guys, instead we just have the centerpiece if you will, and that is the Eaton TVS 2300 our fact which is housed inside this guy right here. Now, the TVS or twin vortices series is an extremely popular design that utilizes a twin four rotor lobe pack, and those rotors are twisted 160 total degrees, which is basically just gonna create a more efficient flow over older positive-displacement style blowers and is able to make much more power but at lower boost levels. Now, some of the benefits of going with a TVS style supercharger over other forms of forced inductions such as turbochargers or even centrifugal blowers will be the instantaneous power and throttle response along with a very flat torque curve that is a signature trait here of a TVS. Now, there's nothing to spool up. There's nothing really to weight on here with a smaller positive-displacement blower like this. So all together again that power delivery is very linear. It's gonna make this a great option for just about every driving style out there, whether you're drag racing, road racing, or you're just using this on a street car, the TVS does it all and does it all very well. Now, with the Phase 1 kit, you are gonna find the lower unit which is the other piece I do have on the table here, and this is actually your air to water intercooler portion of the blower system itself, which will be used with your included heat exchanger here, otherwise known as an LTR or load temp radiator. Now, just a heads up, this kit does not include any electrical fans, and that is something that you can possibly add down the road if you are interested. Roush does also include a twin 60 millimeter throttle body with this particular kit and that is fed by their low restriction air induction system and corresponding sealed airbox. It should be noted that both the throttle body and the airbox or intake are upgradeable down the road. So if you ever wanted to upgrade, go for a little bit more power, you could do so. However, as it stands, the kit and it's included components will have no trouble making the advertised power claims. The Phase 1 kit will also include the 85 millimeter pulley which will put the car at a very conservative eight to nine pounds of boost depending on your existing modifications. I say that because mods like a set of long tube headers, for instance, will lower boost slightly thanks to the reduction in back pressure, so just something to be aware of there. Now, the pulley much like other components in the kit such as the throttle body and intake can easily be upgraded down the road if you ever wanted to add a little bit more boost and subsequently a little bit more power. But just know if you do start upgrading stuff, a new calibration will be required in addition to make some changes to your fueling. Speaking of fueling, Roush does also toss in their high flow fuel rails in addition to a set of 56 pound injectors to help fuel the newly blown Coyote setup at this hour level. Again, injectors, another possible area for upgrade down the road if and when the urge strikes for a little bit more power or maybe you wanna start playing with some E85. Finally, Roush does throw in all of the required fasteners, all your wiring, brackets, hoses and everything to get this system installed on your S550 GT. Now, before we do get into the installation, I do wanna point out that the included calibration of the Phase 1 kit does come in the form of a tuning voucher and not a handheld device. Now, this voucher will allow you to obtain your calibration from Roush which at that point can be loaded to your car via a few different devices, such as a J2534 interface tool typically found at your Ford dealership or even a dongle which can be sourced from maybe the aftermarket or one of your buddies. If neither one of these are available to you, you can always remove the PCM from your Mustang, send it off to Roush. They'll flash it for you and then send it back, but that will cost you an additional fee. But switching gears, let's briefly graze over the install. And again, this is a topical overview of the kit here, guys, and as such, we're gonna keep it short and sweet on the install. Full three out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter, a lot of steps as you might imagine. So if you're not terribly comfortable in the garage with something like this, I wouldn't hesitate to reach out to your local shop. A lot of install, some clearancing of the front timing cover in addition to a little wiring. So definitely for the more experienced mechanics out there. Give yourself at least a day in the garage. More than likely though, a full weekend to get everything knocked out. Make sure you have a nice set of tools on hand before getting started and be sure to print out Roush's very detailed instructions to help you get through the job. So if you are looking to enter the world of forced induction, the Roush Phase 1 kit will be very appealing for a couple of big reasons. First and foremost, it's been proven time and time again on the 5 liter platform. It will also be super reliable when using the Roush calibration. And last but not least, it can easily be upgraded if and when the urge for more power strikes down the road. So, that is my brief overview of the Roush Phase 1 kit, which you can grab right here at americanmuscle.com.
