  DEARBORN, Mich., Aug. 20

DEARBORN, Mich., Aug. 20 /PRNewswire/ -- Ford Racing has announced today the
availability of a new, 2.3L twin-screw supercharger for the 2011 Mustang. When
mated to the all-new 5.0L 4V TiVCT V8 engine, this 50-state-legal powertrain,
can produce 624 hp SAE @ 6900 rpm and 536 lb-ft SAE @ 4700 rpm.  This is the
first Twin-screw unit available to consumers.

The new supercharger is Ford Racing's first power upgrade component for the
new 5.0 engine.  It was developed by Ford Racing engineers, in close
collaboration with Ford Motor Company's powertrain engineers, Team Mustang,
and key partners in Roush and Whipple.  The supercharger is being seen for the
first time Saturday at the annual Woodward Dream Cruise in Ford's Mustang
Alley display.

"Superchargers are the ultimate in power upgrades for Mustang enthusiasts,"
says George Goddu, Ford Racing Performance Group Manager. "Calibration for a
modern V8 engine, especially one with twin-independent variable cam timing, is
incredibly complex.  Production calibration for the 5.0 engine took 19 months.
Having that knowledge base to work from is a huge advantage.

"In fact we had the whole engineering background of the engine right from
initial concept," Goddu added.  "With that knowledge base, and extensive
collaboration across the team, we are able to offer a top-notch supercharger,
induction kit and the optimum calibration.  This results in great power,
drivability and durability."

"After more than 100 hours of accelerated durability testing, the entire Ford
Racing package performed flawlessly," reports Dev Saberwal, Ford Racing's lead
calibration engineer. "Ford Racing performance parts are subjected to
extensive testing to ensure optimum performance across a broad range of
conditions."

This supercharger comes as a complete package, and it's available in three
levels: a 525 hp kit with a 12/12 warranty; a 624 hp kit and a tuner kit for
racing and extreme enthusiasts. Each of these impressive kits gives 2011
Mustang owners the opportunity to boost the performance of their cars to new
levels.

Ford Racing Performance Parts offers a large selection of performance products
from complete race cars to injectors.  For Mustang enthusiasts Ford Racing's
