'11 Mustang GT, Vortech vs. Edelbrock Supercharger comparision,
A customer of ours decided to go with an Edelbrock Supercharger kit for his 2011 Mustang GT. After having us install
the kit, he was not happy with the performance. We thought he may enjoy the
Vortech Superchargers kit instead, so we
gave him a ride in our Vortech equipped shop car and he was sold. Before we
pulled off the Edelbrock to install the Vortech Supercharger, we Dyno'd the car on our Dynojet. We were really
interested to see what kind of power difference the car would make when
cool vs. after being heatsoaked. Since we had to put the stock manifold on
for the Vortech anyways, we also made a run in the stock configuration,
both cool as well as heatsoaked. Finally we installed the Vortech and
performed the same tests. Watch the video to see the final numbers were.

The 2011 5.0L Mustang Supercharging Systems from Vortech...
The new 2011 Mustang GT
brings back a heritage that many of us muscle car guys grew up with known
as the "Five Point Oh". From the street to the race track, the 5 liter Ford
engine has been an icon for decades. In fact, much of the reputation
Vortech has built up over the years is directly as a result of the power
and reliability that our customers have enjoyed from our early model 5.0L
systems. This legendary platform has been the springboard for most of our
Supercharger breakthroughs. From the
inaugural V-1 A-Trim, to the first quiet operating V-2 SQ, to the (still)
unmatched and untouchable V-7 YSi-Trim, and even to the self-lubricated V-3
Si-Trims of today, the Vortech Supercharger has always been the best choice for
Mustang enthusiasts all
over the world.
It is for that reason, even though some companies may feel comfortable
repackaging the same old 4.6L kit from 2005, Vortech does not. This new
5.0L Vortech system is specifically engineered around the completely
redesigned engine in the 2011 GT. Utilizing the V-3 Supercharger, horsepower gains per psi
will eclipse competitor's models due to pure, unadulterated efficiency.
That's 78% adiabatic efficiency for you tech-heads out there, which we
would compare to the other guys' efficiency numbers if they even had the
equipment to test for it...but they don't. The included air-to-air charge
cooler is significantly larger than other offerings, translating into more
effective charge cooling right out of the box, and substantially higher horsepower support on
modified vehicles. The mounting location of this larger Intercooler is far superior as well,
placing it directly at the lower bumper opening where it can be most
effective, instead of behind the bumper where it will get little to no
airflow across it. The air inlet ducting, a stylishly well designed
roto-molded piece draws air from the stock airbox, instead of directly over
the hottest point in the engine compartment. This benefit will not only all
but guarantee 50 state emissions legality for this system, but will also
allow for larger MAF and CAI selection down the road.
You'd better mark this system down on your modification "To Do" list now,
before you're the last one without one!
Fastlane 2011 Ford Mustang GT 5.0L Turbo
That's right, we're already playing with the 5.0L. not only do we have a
5.0L crate motor to build up, but we've also put a turbo on a factory OEM 5.0L motor. At just 6 PSI
Boost with an Exhaust and our special tuning touch we've made
543 RWHP and 521 RWTQ through an automatic. JUST 6 PSI!!! Just think what
it will do at 15 PSI on our built 5.0L motor!
