2007 GT - Rocks!
Purchased a 2007 Mustang GT with 101,000 miles. Clean car and ran good. Only mods were larger tires and a muffler delete exhaust. Wanted a project for my 16 year old to learn how to do some wrenching. Considered having a shop install the supercharger. However, we committed to doing it ourselves after reading the reviews on this site. Couldn’t have been happier with our choice to do it ourselves! Ran into a challenge out of the gate as 6 of the 8 plugs snapped off. Bought an extraction tool and it worked great to pull them out without issue. We worked a few hours for several weekends and had a great time following the very complete and detailed instructions. Found an install video on YouTube which was also great to reference. Ended up going with the Roush tune. The only other challenge was filling the coolant system, realizing a tool to pull a vacuum was needed to eliminate air in the system. Tried to burp it with a funnel and wouldn’t do enough to get the air out at the water pump. Bought a $100 vacuum tool online and worked like a charm. Finished up and put it back together and had a break in our winter weather where the roads were clear and dry. Talk about a great new ride! Stock gearing and first gear breaks loose without much effort, 2nd and 3rd gear has awesome pull! We will be stalling a new clutch as a couple third gear hard hits resulted in some slight slippage. Kinda anticipated this with the mileage we started with. I wasn’t easy on it and tried to make something fail and didn’t! Really pleased with how this runs! With less than $15k invested this was a great experience to share with my son. He was thankful, gained some new skills and confidence to tackle projects like this without fear of failure. Appreciate the ease of the entire setup! If you are considering tackling this yourself, don’t hesitate. There is nothing tough about this you can’t handle without having any special tools other than what I mentioned along with a torque wrench. Very satisfied as this gave our car the power this car was meant to have! New clutch, ford aluminum driveshaft and a lowering kit is the next part of the project before spring hits!Helpful (12)

Only way to get POWER!!
Don't bother with a stupid waste of money tuner thinking you're all that because you have a "custom tune" The only way you're going to get real power is by a supercharger or a turbo. "Hey bro, I got a custom tune on my stock mustang. Feel how much faster it is?" Don't been that guy...Helpful (16)

2008 GT with Roush 2300 Super Charger upgrade
I am disappointed that after paying $56xx. for the unit that I had to pay for FEDEX shipping and return shipping my PCM to Roush for programming plus I had to pay $100 for that programming. After these add on epxenses the Edelbrock E series might have been a more reasonable choice.... Beyond this I am extremely pleased with my 2300, my 3v GT really responds to the new HP upgrade. The quality of the product and the fitment is great. AM needs to change out the product picture on their website because, my unit anyway did not come as pictured with the carbon fiber air inlet.Helpful (14)

Kit is shipped in three big boxes. Quality packing materials are used to keep everything secure. I installed this kit mostly by myself. I had a buddy come over on the last day to help finish up. I wanted to take my time and enjoy the installation. Took me 7 days total. I had under drive pulleys so I had to re-install my original crank balancer. And I took my time with the wiring. You have to unwrap the wiring looms, being careful not to cut the wires inside the bundles. I soldered all connections and re-wrapped everything tidy and neat - factory looking. The kit instructions are very good. Could they be better? Yes, absolutely. There are a few steps that are very incomplete, or missing, but patience will get you through it. There are extra parts included to cover the different years, don't freak out. I have an automatic. The kit installs the same as a manual car. Roush did not spend the time to offer an automatic car tune, that's all. I am running an after market tune since Roush doesn't support automatics. Fitment and part quality are exceptional, it's a first class kit. I did have to modify one wrong style fuel injector clip. I also have BBK shorty headers. There is a passenger side heater bracket that is mounted with a large bolt. By cutting this bolt I was able to mount the bracket and keep my headers. The install is straight forward if you take your chill pill, don't get excited or get in a hurry to finish. There are a lot of steps. Be sure you have a couple of tables to lay your parts on, both the new ones and the ones you take off - super important! Keep your work area organized. Use a shop vacuum to keep engine area clean and coolant free. Be sure to use lots of zip ties, electrical tape, install a boost gauge, buy quality coolant, use Vaseline on rubber gaskets and hoses. Use a tuner who will tweak it using data logs - no one size fits all tunes. Removing the bottom radiator hoses is no fun. And dealing with the hose clamps will drive you to drink heavily. I found a perfect long nosed vice grip as my savior for them. Don't use screw hose clamps. You'll need a hack saw and file for a couple of steps. Car is amazing afterwards. Only WOT at the track for me. Oh and you'll need big wheel and tires!Helpful (21)

Had this super charger professionally installed by a mechanic. After talking to the mechanic he was very impressed on how complete the kit was and how easy the instructions were to follow.Helpful (10)
will stock bottom end work with this? will i need to get a rebuild kit for the bottom end or will the stock internals hold up the the HP produced by the super?
Yeah keep the at 8-10 p s I
Will I get a whine from the 8-10 lbs of boost?
The Roush R2300 475HP Supercharger will allow for wine at stock boost levels, however it will not wine as loud as higher boost superchargers.
Will this kit fit under the Ford Racing Strut connector on a 2009 Bullitt I am looking to add this to my 2009 Bullitt. Does this charger need an additional fuel pump? Any dyno results? O.K. to add to a car that has 50,000 miles?
There are a few things you need to know before moving forward. 1) Has the car been modified from stock configuration? i.e... does it have headers? The Roush system is FANTASTIC if you have a stock car. When you send the PCM to Roush they assume the car is factory. If you have added headers you will need a GT 500 Fuel pump kit, and a tune on a dyno. The best thing to do is to weight the options. I had to get a tune since I have Kooks headers; it needs the GT 500 Fuel pump kit and a retune. I also was able to us the GT 500 strut bar. The kit is mainly Ford Racing GT 500 parts with an Eaton 2300 SC and a Roush intake. I love it and would go and do it again if I had too, just would be a little wiser with the other parts needed. Oh, and if it is modified.... Don't send the PCM to Roush get it tuned on a dyno...
Headers A question and a comment. I read a review saying this will not work if you have headers without a custom tune. Is that true? If so I will probably find a different supercharger since places around here that can provide decent tunes are few and far between. It's hard to believe Roush has never encountered a car with headers before with one of their superchargers. Ugh!
Roush ONLY writes tunes for stock engines. I wrote the review you're talking about, and before I bought this blower I specifically asked Roush this question. After extensive research, I discovered that the best option is to contact JDM Engineering, as they can write you a custom tune for whatever combo you have. According to them, Roush writes their tunes to be as safe as possible, so there's a lot of power left on the table. JDM has extensive experience with tuning RoushCharged vehicles, as 1. they helped Roush develop their first tunes for these blowers and 2. they have a 4.6 3v RoushCharged Stang that runs 8s! Also according to JDM, RoushCharger plus headers plus their tune will equal around 500 REAR WHEEL horsepower! Oh yeah, one last thing: if you go the headers/JDM tune route, make darn sure you have a GT500 fuel pump installed. Good luck!!!
Can you use Ford Hot Rod Performance Cam Shafts with this Roush Super Charger? Also, can you use the ford valve covers as well? Looking at doing some upgrades and saving up to get the Roush Supercharger.
Any tune included with a supercharger kit like this would not be compatible with the Hot Rod cams. You'd either need a custom tune from someone like VMP for a supercharged setup, or a custom dyno tune from a nearby shop. Cams with a lope like Hot Rod cams do not provide the best gains for a supercharged setup. You'll want cams with less overlap. You'll often hear cams like this called blower cams.
Hi, This supercharger will produce a very nice wine.
No, the ROUSH TVS includes a GT500 throttle body. This supercharger only accepts GT500 sized throttle bodies.
It is safe to remove the strut bar yes. As for the clutch will you want to find a clutch that can handle the amount of torque you will be making.
Yes they can be ported but not like the old eatons, the TVS are much more efficient and by just swapping the pulley to get more boost is enough to get higher horsepower levels without the need to "port" the blower...
This will not fit 2010 models, nor will it fit automatic transmissions.
The reason this won't fit is due to the different engine bay design of the 2010+ GT's causing clearance issues with the blower and different cold air intake design.
We do not offer individual parts of this kit.
This is a complete kit, so in order to build on top of this kit you would need to speak with Roush directly to look into what your options are relative to what this complete kit is offering.
Yes, an upgraded fuel pump would affect the Roush tune, another custom tune would be required to account for it.
