Roush Ups The Ante In The Supercharger Wars

Staff Report

TVS2300 ROUSHcharger offers up to 700hp for Mustang GT


07-18-08: Up until now, Roush has been making their name using the Eaton M series of superchargers for their cars and trucks, and aftermarket kits. These include the bulletproof Stage 3, 427R, BlackJack and many other Mustangs.

Last fall Roush introduced the 515hp P-51A Mustang which gave us the first look at the next generation of Roush supercharging technology. The P-51A used an all new supercharger unit developed in partnership with Eaton called the TVS. It utilizes Eaton’s new Twin Vortices Series technology. The patented design on this supercharger system features a four-lobe rotor and high-flow inlet which greatly enhances thermal efficiency, higher volume capacity, and higher operational speeds.

It was only a matter of time before this new supercharger system would be made available in kit form to the open market. That time is now. Roush has introduced the new TVS2300 ROUSHcharger which will enable 2005 to 2009 Mustang GT owners to get up to 700 horsepower with the 4.6 liter V8. If you already own a Roush supercharged Mustang, there is a version of the kit just for you, that allows you to upgrade your current system the new unit too.

“The gloves are off for the specialty tuners to get really creative with a ROUSHcharger now,” said Joe Thompson, general manager of ROUSH Performance. “We’re excited to see what some of these guys can do with the new TVS2300 ROUSHcharger and really explore the type of performance that this new unit is capable of. We’ve heard some numbers from a couple of exploratory installs already and I must say that they are very impressive.”

As the new TVS2300 ROUSHcharger will be available in a variety of packages, we will do our best to explain each one.

TVS2300 ROUSHcharger Kit:

To fit the needs from enthusiasts wanting a new complete kit with a warranty, those simply looking to get the maximum horsepower with a custom tune, and owners wishing to upgrade a car with an existing ROUSHcharger system. The new TVS2300 ROUSHcharger was first used on the 2008 ROUSH P-51A™ Mustang vehicle builds to much acclaim.

For those willing to explore the wild side, the TVS2300 ROUSHcharger is now sold separately allowing custom tuners to develop their own calibration which can push the horsepower anywhere from 510 to more than 700. This is the first time that ROUSH is offering specialty tuning firms the option of using their own calibrations and being creative with their tune on a ROUSHcharger. This kit includes a cold air intake
system, unique fuel rail with 52 lb.-hr. injectors, a dual 60 mm electronic throttle body, all hardware, brackets and instructions. With a one-year component warranty, this kit retails for $5,899 (part number 403994).

TVS2300 ROUSHcharger Upgrade Kit (For Roush M-Series Supercharged Cars)

Owners of an existing ROUSHcharger system can upgrade to the TVS2300 ROUSHcharger for $4,999 (part number 403995). This kit includes several of the same components above but utilizes as many of the installed ROUSHcharger components as practical to help reduce the upgrade cost. Customers will need to work with a custom tuner for maximum performance.

TVS2300 ROUSHcharger Complete Kit:

For those wanting the extra power the TVS2300 ROUSHcharger can bring but want to have OEM longevity and a power train warranty to go with it, Roush has a “Complete Kit” in store that includes much of the same internal upgrades found in the P-51A Roush Mustang. These additional parts have been engineered tested to be “safe” for the additional boost, wear and tear with the TVS2300 ROUSHcharger.

The complete kit with a Roush-backed 3-year/36,000 mile engine warranty will be available shortly. This version of the TVS2300 ROUSHcharger is 50-state legal and rated at 510 horsepower and 510 lb.-ft. of torque. Included in the package is the complete TVS2300 ROUSHcharger system featuring new upper and lower intake manifolds for the high capacity air-to-water intercooler and larger TVS supercharger. A custom ROUSH calibration is included, as well as new fuel rails and high-flow 52 pound fuel injectors, a high-flow capacity fuel pump, as well as a dual electronic throttle body. A Roush Cold Air Kit with a stylish carbon fiber clean air tube helps to dress up the engine bay and provides improved performance.

This kit also includes a Roush-assembled short block with forged components such as a steel eight-bolt crankshaft, aluminum flywheel, aluminum pistons with increased dish to lower the compression from 9:8 to 8:6, and steel H-Beam connecting rods. Pricing has not been set for this package at the time of this writing.
