De Amerikanen snappen het. Veel pk’s moeten voor veel mensen bereikbaar zijn, en niet alleen voor de elite. Saleen kwam al met de racecraft als budgetmerk, en ook Roush gaat in de budgetvijver vissen. Als je de huidige Mustang GT naar ze brengt, schroeven ze deze voor 5000 dollar op naar meer dan 700 pk.
Hoe ze dit doen? Door hun nieuwe TVS2300 ROUSHcharger te monteren. Dus Jan met de pet kan een tweedehands Mustang aanschaffen en er 5000 dollar bij investeren, en dan rijdt hij met meer pk’s dan de Enzo, SLR, Carrera GT en…. eigenlijk alle supercars rond.
Leuk autootje om mee te beginnen toch? Een soort van rijdende doodskist zou je het kunnen noemen.
UNLEASH UP TO 700 HORSEPOWER WITH NEW TVS2300 ROUSHCHARGER®
LIVONIA, Mich. (July 10, 2008) – ROUSH® Performance has always been the
leader in powertrain performance and with the introduction of the new
TVS2300 ROUSHcharger® it is possible for owners of any 2005 to 2009 Ford
Mustang GT to inject up to 700 horsepower under the hood.
The new TVS2300 ROUSHcharger will be available in a variety of packages
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
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.

The TVS2300 ROUSHcharger 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.
“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.”
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.

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
