Ford Will Sell You A Mustang With Enough Horsepower To Ruin Your Life

Ford is no stranger to offering a giant supercharger as an aftermarket upgrade for its cars. It has been selling a 700-horsepower kit for 5-liter F150 pickups for a couple of years now, and a similar [but less powerful] kit was available for the S550-generation Mustang. Now Ford Performance has brought that same bonkers power mentality to the standard run-of-the-mill S650-generation Mustang GT. At the SEMA show this week in Las Vegas, Ford pulled the covers off of a new supercharger package imbuing Dearborn’s sports car with 800 horsepower. It comes with a factory warranty, and it’s even 50-state emissions legal.

According to Ford, this kit will work on both automatic and manual-equipped S650 Mustang GTs. It’s not yet available for Dark Horse customers, but a separate Ford Performance supercharger package will be available for that car soon. The FP800S power package will give your five-liter-heater a 3.0-liter twin-screw Whipple supercharger, and supplementary components like a bigger throttle body, larger fuel injectors, an intercooler, and flash software to run it all.

While pricing hasn’t yet been announced, the package should be available to purchase next year, and it’s all but guaranteed to be the least expensive way to get 800 horseys under the hood. The 700-horsepower kit for F150s is a mere $12,000, which is a lot of rowdy for not a lot of Benjamins. If this package can be had for under 15,000 smackaroos, you could have a brand new car that would embarrass damn near everything on the market for under sixty grand. And it’ll still have a 3-year, 36,000 mile warranty tacked on, assuming the work is done by an ASE certified mechanic.

Like the F150, Ford will also offer a full FP800S package for the Mustang. With special wheels, a special grille, a louder exhaust, lowering springs, upgraded halfshafts, and a sticker pack that makes the thing stand out from the crowd (without running into it). Come on, you didn’t think we could make it through a post about an 800 horsepower Mustang without invoking the oldest internet car joke, right?

Getting a used bare bones GT coming off lease in a couple of years might be an even less expensive way to get what you need to go stupid fast. Ford hasn’t released performance stats on the FP800S package just yet, but you can bet it’ll be quick if you can get it to hook up. The stock GT will run a 3.9-second 0-60 and low 12s in the quarter mile, after all. Adding 300-something horses to that package should make for a rapid stallion. Horse.
