With the revelations of modern technology, innovation, and performance, the Mustang has become the envy within the pony car segment, even among its sports car rival from Europe and Japan. Throughout Mustang history, the supercharger has been a prevalent figure to aiding enthusiasts to create immense amounts of horsepower by merely adding a supercharger to their engine. Thanks to Ford's ingenious inception of the now legendary 5.0L 32V Ti-VCT "Coyote" engine, the Mustang community has never been able to make power so quickly due to the incredible engineering Ford did to build the legendary motor. While the Coyote started in 2011, that didn't stop Ford from building upon landmark engineering. In the 2015-2023 Mustang models, Ford debuted the Gen II in 2015 and then the Gen III in 2018.
Pushing the boundaries on what the Mustang can become is how it has made such a mark on the automotive community, industry, and world. Companies like Vortech, Whipple, Paxton, ProCharger, and Magneson have all helped enthusiasts pick up vast amounts of power by adding a supercharger to their ponies engine. From twin-screw, centrifugal, and roots style superchargers, each will enhance their 2015-2023 Mustang to new heights they never dreamed of having.

Some S550 Mustangs have seen well over 1,000 horsepower when combined with the correct gearing, long-tube-header, axle-back exhaust, and custom tuning. Making for an unbelievable racehorse that needs no introduction and will be able to compete among any competition.
Horsepower and speed have always been the epicenter of every Mustang since 1964.
