We’ve done Mustangs with Prochargers before, but this one is a little different. The owner brought us the car with the Procharger already installed and wanted to do a little twist on it. He wanted an smaller diameter pulley for more boost, but a wastegate on the intercooler piping to regulate boost pressure. With this kind of setup he will be able to run different amounts of boost up to the max psi that the pulley produces.
Placement of the red Tial blow off valve and wastegate was definitely important. From the outside others had to know that this Mustang was something special. We decided to mount them on each side of the intercooler so that they’d show in the lower part of the front bumper. Their red color definitely makes their presence known.
The small diameter pulley will be producing around 20 lbs of boost, but the wastegate will be able to regulate it.
While we were under the hood, we upgraded the crank sprocket and oil pump gear as preventative maintenance, since they are known to fail.
Stay tuned for more updates!
Current modification list:
Corsa Sport Cat-back
MMR Crank & Oil Pump Gears
Tial Q BOV
Tial 44mm Wastegate
3.85″ Procharger Pulley
Custom Intercooler Piping
The monster of a Mustang got all finished up last week. This thing sounded mean once we got it over to the dyno, and with a little bit of tuning it put down 579whp and 465wtq at 7.7 pounds of boost! That’s almost a 35% increase over what it made at the factory. We may see this Mustang back in the shop soon for some more upgrades. With it’s extra 200whp, it’s going to be a good idea to upgrade some other parts of the drive train. Check out the video of the pull below…

The new Mustangs are already badass cars to begin with. Once you add a Procharger to one… yeah, it’s going to be good. Under the hood, the coyote is a beast of an engine and makes heaps of power from the factory. But when the owner wanted to add some forced induction to the mix, we were happy to get started.
The Procharger kit was fully complete and came with everything little thing you need for the install, down to the oil for the supercharger. Everything looks super clean under the hood and almost stock.
They even took the liberty of replacing the hideous stock expansion tank with this nice black powdercoated one. It really helps to clean up the whole look of the engine bay.
Once everything is bolted on, this Procharged S550 will make its way over to our dyno for some tuning. It’s sure to lay down a good amount of power. Check back to see its dyno pull!
