The ProCharger Stage II System and Tuner Kit for 2011 Ford Mustang 5.0l.

ProCharger strikes the hottest iron which seems to be the 2011 Ford Mustang GT 5.0l. This well established company is debuting an already available supercharger kit the ProCharger Intercooled Stage II System and Tuner Kit. The kit is 100% complete and includes a P-1SC-1 ProCharger self-contained centrifugal supercharger, a front mounted 3-core air-to-air intercooler and a 8-rib dedicated supercharger drive system (a 12 rib is supposed to be available as well) and it all fits under a stock hood. The complete package is supposed to provide 7+ psi of boost and 180 HP to a stock engine running high quality pump gas. When all is said and done ProCharger says your stock 2011 5.0L will be pumping out 615+ flywheel horsepower with their new Stage II Supercharger System and Tuner Kit.

Magnuson is also gunning for the 5.0L Mustang crowd with their 2010 SEMA Magna Charger debut. The company is keeping quiet about their new system but many speculate the new kit could be based on the TVS 2300 blower which is used in the Roush and Whipple supercharger kits. They have leaked some pictures. Shown is the new kit in grabber blue. Rumors have it the final product will be available in blue, black and chrome.

Question:

I have a 2000 Crown Victoria LX am I’m looking for a Supercharger set for it. Right now, I have not found anything and have no luck. If you have any information, please send it.

Answer:

The stock 4.6L V8 in the 2000 Crown Vic is a 2-valve SOHC (single overhead cam) which is the same as the 2000 Mercury Grand Marquis with 215 HP and 285 lb-ft. Crown Vics use the same 4.6L Ford Modular engine as many Ford products do. For example the Mustang. The 4.6L 2-valve SOHC were used in Mustangs from 1996 to 2004 and other cars using this engine were 1994 to 1997 Ford Thunderbirds and the 1994 to 1997 Mercury Cougar. So, if you can’t find a supercharger kit for the set up on your specific platform then you can look at the other cars for options.

Luckily there are already Crown Vics with superchargers. A popular option for them seems to be the Eaton M112 roots blower. There is a company called Tork Tech Inc. who produces an Eaton M112 based supercharger kit for the 4.6L Crown Vic. They have their kit set up on several Crown Vic’s but it’s not a simple as pie bolt on. Some changes need to be made such as moving the battery to the trunk or drivers side as well as moving the coolant overflow tank and washer fluid tank. In the grand scheme of things these aren’t major problems to overcome so it’s a really good option to look at.

The Tork Tech supercharger kit may be the easiest way to get it done but I can’t say if it’s the most cost effective. Rumor has it the price is a bit up there. As for other options I’ve also heard that Whipple may have something for the 4.6L so you could check with them. Finally, following is a video of a 2000 Crown Vic with a Vortech V-2 SQ S-Trim centrifugal supercharger which seems to be a custom install.

If anyone else knows of some superchargers or kits that’ll work on this platform please leave a comment.
