'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.

This car returned to the same Dyno in May 2012 for a custom calibration and picked up 46 RWHP & 57 RWTQ since removing the Ford Racing Pro Cal tune.
While the numbers may still appear low they would convert to a Dynojet standard of approx: 521 RWHP & 452 RWTQ SAE.

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!
