Ford Will Soon Sell You An 800 Horsepower Supercharged Mustang GT With A Warranty

The 2024 Ford Mustang GT is awesome, thoroughly improving on the old car while sticking to the formula of a V8 up front, a limited-slip differential out back, and a smiling piece of meat in the middle. However, do you know what would make it more awesome? That’s right, more than 800 horsepower produced by force-feeding that V8. Ah, right on cue, here it is.

Needless to say, modifying a 2024 Ford Mustang GT is a complex business. Because every module on the vehicle is encrypted, it will take quite a while for the aftermarket to crack the new Mustang’s systems. However, Ford Performance isn’t the aftermarket, and that’s why it just unveiled an 800 horsepower dealer-installed supercharger package for the 2024 Ford Mustang GT that comes with a warranty.

Well, maybe not exactly 800 horsepower. Ford’s official wording is “at least 800 horsepower,” which means we could be looking at Dodge Challenger SRT Demon-rivaling output on pump gas. Remember, that bad Dodge made 808 horsepower on 93 octane, so it seems possible that Ford has an extra nine horsepower up its sleeve. Official output will be announced at a later date, but this sort of sandbagging gets the people going.

Ford Mustang Gt Supercharger

The unit responsible for adding an entire 2010 Mustang GT worth of horsepower to the 2024 model is a three-liter Whipple Gen 6 supercharger displacing more air than most engines on the road today. A huge list of mods supports the three-liter Whipple supercharger’s insane output, including high-flow injectors in billet fuel rails, a 92 mm throttle body, dual 120 mm air intakes, a water-to-air intercooler to keep that compressed air at a reasonable temperature, and the obligatory flash tool to prevent the powertrain computer from shitting a brick the moment it’s presented with 800 horsepower.

Supercharger

Ford’s dyno graph of this package is an absolutely golden specimen of what a positive displacement supercharger can do. Peak power hits right at the top of the rev range, and more than 500 lb.-ft. of torque is available from around 2,250 RPM. This package should offer beastly output everywhere, from rolling into the throttle for a freeway overtake to blitzing the quarter mile. Just don’t deploy them all while exiting an Arby’s drive-thru, or you’ll experience a real squeaky bum moment. Perhaps the best part of this supercharger package, other than 800 screaming, rampaging horsepower? You don’t have to sacrifice a whole lot to get it.

When the supercharger kit is installed by an ASE certified technician or any dealer technician, it comes with a three-year, 36,000-mile warranty and is CARB compliant. That’s more than 800 horsepower legal across all 50 states. What’s more, you can have this kit slapped on any Mustang GT, even the absolute basest of base models with cloth seats and the dual screens.

If you’ve suddenly set fire to your Christmas list to replace it with this supercharger kit, be advised that Ford won’t have it ready for customer sales until early 2024. Still, that’s only a few months away, and launching a method to extract 800 horsepower from a Mustang GT right as the Dodge Challenger and Chevrolet Camaro wind down production is one hell of a power move. Oh, and simply ordering the kit probably won’t be the only way to vaporize tires in a supercharged 2024 Mustang GT.

At this year’s SEMA show, Ford unveiled the FP800S concept, although “concept” seems to be used in the same fast, loose sense in which Mustang drivers say “Mexico.” According to Ford Performance, “The new Ford Mustang FP800S concept package* joins the F-150 FP700 Package from Ford Performance Parts, bringing straight-line performance to street vehicles.” Huh, I wonder what that asterisk is doing? As Ford states, “*Content packages are subject to change,” which is a pretty good sign that a similar package will likely show up at parts counters. To harness the massive supercharged output, the FP800S comes with upgraded CV axles and lowered suspension, although a host of other upgrades will be available. I’m talking aero packages, wheels, tires, stripes, a Borla catback exhaust system, and mysterious interior goodies.

Ford Mustang Fp800s Interior

Given the contents of the F-150 FP700 package, a crate to turn your work truck into a bald eagle machine, I wouldn’t be surprised if a finalized FP800S package includes wheels, stripes, and possibly a handful of other cosmetic touches. Speaking of the F-150 FP700, we’ve driven that truck and it’s a hilariously malevolent instrument of violence that we all deeply desire. Don’t be surprised if an eventual Mustang FP800S is a hoot, a giggle, and every other onomatope you can possibly think of.

Oh, and don’t think that Dark Horse owners are being left out in the cold. Ford Performance has announced that it “will launch a Dark Horse-specific supercharger kit in the near future.” Given the stronger connecting rods of the Dark Horse motor, it’s entirely possible we’ll see far more than 800 horsepower out of it once a supercharger package is dialed in. Long live Motown muscle, in all its loutish, brutish, testosterone-laden glory.

Are they selling these packages instead of an 800hp model because it doesn’t ding them on the CAFE fleet average?

Oh Ford, you’re making this German Crapbox Masochist fall in love with domestic rides. The FP700 remains my favorite road test of my career thus far. I’ll take one ride in this Mustang, please. Clearly, I just need to hop into Fords with ever-increasing horsepower until I end up driving so fast I tear into time and space.

As much as I’m eurotrash fan boi, I’ve always had a soft spot for the Mustang. I would drive the shit out of this (obviously).. I’ve seen a few S650s in person now, it’s. handsome car, but kind of underwhelming. The “concept” definitely does some helping on that end. The exhaust tips are obnoxiously too big, though. They’d look 10x better if they were oval/trapezoidal and flush with the bottom of the bumper.

I’ve driven a fair few S550s. Had an ecoboost convertible rental. That was complete trash. Driven a few GTs, they’re decent. GT500 nearly made me cum. It was all the flat plane crank motor, it sounds soooo good. If the S650 is better, or if they offer the Voodoo motor with a supercharger, but without the hideous, try-hard body of the S550 GT500, I’ll be on that shit all day. S/C “base” GT350 (with a warranty) would be peak.

The GT500 has a cross plane crank. The flat plane was only used in the GT350.

I definitely noticed after I couldn’t edit it that I said GT500. I meant GT350. I haven’t driven the S550 GT500. But I absolutely adored the few times (and once on track) I drove a GT350.

Rad. Just do NOT pair this with the Getrag manual. That transmission is over stressed from the factory and will probably be vaporized midway through your 2nd or 3rd return to monke pull. Regardless, 800 warrantied horsepower is cool as hell and I wish more manufacturers would offer in-house tuning options. It seems like a win-win. They make more money, we get MO POWA without voiding the warranty.

Anyway, I’ve gotta say the S650 looks way better in person than it does in pictures. There are a few Dark Horses rumbling around near me already and the design has really grown on me…although if I were to ever acquire a Mustang I would probably focus on more of a touring build than a track one.

How does the front end look in person? I’m quite taken with the rear on screen, but I can’t decide if I like the front, esp. the 6 headlight array.

I think it looks good, although I’ve only seen them while parked. Can’t necessarily tell you how it is when the headlights are on.

Thanks…I can’t decide if Ford is trying to very subtly incorporate retro fox body cues (the blockiness of the front) or if it’s an evolution of the current style but heading in a new direction (i.e. the headlights).

The interior (the uplevel one with the more integrated dash screens) now really seems to me to be riffing on the rectangular panel setup of the early foxes, so I wonder about other cues.

it’s fine, if a bit boring. a few neighbors have recently purchased them.. one’s an ecoboost, one’s a GT. both are inoffensive, but not super exciting either. I feel like they’re really trying to push GT customers to Dark Horse.

I think you’re correct. The Dark Horse looks way cooler than the GT…not to mention early testing seems to suggest that the S650 GT is actually a slightly worse performer than its predecessor. The Dark Horse also has access to way more advanced performance parts and an exponentially better manual transmission. They’re trying to move upmarket and compete with stuff like the M2, but I’m not sure if it’s going to work.

I think they’ve overplayed their CHARGE MOAR hand, to be honest. I don’t think the average GT buyer is dropping $55,000 on a kitted out Premium and can be talked into dropping $60-70,000 on a Dark Horse. I think the average GT buyer is probably stretching their budget for a barebones one…and a year or two ago you could get new S550 GTs in the mid 30s with low APR financing all day.

I think Ford is pushing their luck trying to take it further upmarket. It gets away from what the Mustang is supposed to be…a brash, loud, affordable, kind of sketchy sportscar for the everyman/woman. I even think the S650 with the performance package is too expensive for what it is. Of course it’s paywalled behind a bunch of packages, so you’re well into the 50s out the door.

I personally love pony cars, and I could afford to go buy a PP GT (hahahaha pee pee hahahahaha) or Dark Horse if I really wanted to. But I don’t think either are a great value at the moment…although the discounts will inevitably come.

I appreciate your assessment, as I’ve been wondering something similar about the timing of the Mustang’s switch from lovable rough-edged ponycar to sophisticated sports car.

To paraphrase Motortrend’s take on a Mustang model a long time ago, is the S650 also “the right car for the time” in the sense of big sales of a high-dollar performer for a bit when everyone’s still spending like crazy, but then quickly slowing due to broader economic pressures catching up?

That old Mustang tanked for not offering what previous models did, but if this one doesn’t do well, will Ford (in our social media era) be able to release a model that performs worse but is cheaper, to adjust?

I’ve been saying this for a while-I think people need to start taking the high performance Ecoboost offerings more seriously. I know, NO V8 NO CARE, etc…and admittedly if I were to buy a Mustang it would have the Coyote for sure.

But 315ish horsepower for 35k-ish is no joke, and the people who knock the driving dynamics probably haven’t driven one. I had an Ecostang as a rental a while back and was shocked at how much fun I had with it. They’re plenty fast, they’re lighter so the driving dynamics have a little more Miata/Toyobaru in them then the V8s do, and with the performance goodies like the Brembos and MagnaRide they’re great track cars. Mine didn’t even have any of that and I took it out on a rainy morning and was sliding all over the place. It was fun! It’s still 315 rear wheel drive horsepower at the end of the day.

Hell, they dominate in Autocross. I think that that package is going to become a lot more prevalent, especially with the general public being a lot more concerned about fuel economy and emissions than they used to be. They’ll get up to about 30 MPG highway which is excellent for that much horsepower.

I just think it’s a shame that they didn’t carry over the same kit as the S550 HPP Ecoboost. That thing was available in stick and has the damn Focus RS engine mounted longitudinally in it. That’s cool as hell! I actually almost bought one a couple years ago.

I think the Mustang will always be relevant because it’s a cultural icon, but I think its form is changing as we speak. That being said I think Ford trying to upsell people isn’t going to go over well. I think they’re going to have to offer the GT PP at a lower price point, because that’s what pony car buyers really want…a rental spec Mustang with a V8 and the handling goodies that take it from widowmaker to “vaguely usable”.

I own a 20 year old SN95 GT, which has around 265 hp / 305 tq. It’s plenty fast for everyday driving on public roads with other people around – I run out of open road long before I run out of power.

To put it bluntly, once the baby boomers start to die off, the whole Mustang must equal V8 prejudice will slowly ebb I think and there will be more acceptance for the turbos. If Ford could just make them louder without sounding obnoxious, that would go a long way I bet.

Funnily enough, I actually parked next to a Dark Horse at the grocery store about an hour after posting that comment.. all I could see is that it’s basically what the GT PP should have been. I totally agree on them trying to push upmarket, and I’m not sure it’s going to work either. I think it’s the trap a lot of oems get into.. (think AMG not being “good enough” unless it’s an S model, M Competition becoming the new base M, etc) they keep trying to make everything and everyone feel special until nothing is special, so they have to make a NEW special so people can feel important again.. it’s a stupid vicious cycle in the enshittification of everything. The Dark Horse should have been a trim level within GT if nothing else. Everyone knows what a GT is, and diluting and watering down that brand to push people to the DH is just dumb. But so is an electric crossover carrying the same name, so I guess I’m not shocked.

I actually priced Mustang GTs when I bought my Stinger in 2018.. fully fully loaded, PP level 2, every conceivable option, it was ~53k (same as my GT2 Stinger was), and I know they started in the mid/low 30s. That was a shitload of car for the money. I haven’t even looked at pricing on the S650, but I’m not surprised. Not to mention S550 PP2 had 305s all around, the Dark Horse had 265s, I think? That kind of says what it needs to. It’s basically a pimped up trim level (I know it has some different internals and a bit more power etc etc), but it’s basically just Ford saying “if you don’t buy this one you’re a poor and nobody will respect you”. The DH should have been the GT PP2.

Also on them trying to push it upmarket.. the really big issue with that (for Ford) is the people who buy the German big 3 are extremely brand loyal.. and even if the Mustang performed similarly, it just can’t rival the total package they produce, and it wouldn’t really matter if it did. I think they know they’re the last man standing w a V8 pony car and they don’t care how many people they piss off. You want a V8 muscle car, you have to get a Mustang. They’ll introduce as many expensive special and different trims as they can and watch the dick measuring contests unfold.

I went on Ford’s S650 configurator and spec’d out a GT exactly how I’d want it….performance package, 10 speed, aesthetic touches I want, better sound system, performance exhaust, I think that was about it.

It came out to be almost $60,000. At that point I’d be looking elsewhere to be honest, and not necessarily at a Dark Horse. That’s within striking distance of a base M2, which will be a lot more luxurious while offering a similar driving experience. Yeah, it’s down 2 cylinders…but the S58 is a monster.

You can also get a nice used RCF at that price which offers and even better V8 that’s more luxurious than either the Dark Horse or the M2…and if you want something truly unhinged (I personally don’t, but I respect it) you’re in used ZL1 territory, and that thing will wipe the floor with any S650 on the track. It’s basically a bargain supercar performance wise. And that’s C8 money too if you have time to wait for one and can put up with the 2 seat layout.

Like I said, I think Ford is overplaying their hand, and if I search for S650s locally there are hundreds of them and most of them already have money on the hood. The Dark Horses are marked up because of course they are, but everything else is already under MSRP.

I just don’t think these cars are going to move until they’re $5,000+ under MSRP, and I don’t think Ford is going to be able to compete with the luxury performance cars in roughly the same price range. They may be the only game in town right now, but that’s subject to change. We just found out the new Challenger is going to have ICE options and while my deepest, darkest fear is that the Camaro will return as an EV crossover, we technically don’t KNOW GM’s plan for it yet, and they sell enough EVs and hybrids that they could definitely still offer something with a V8 if they want to.

And “enshitification” is amazing lol. IMHO the German brands really led the charge on this nonsense with AMG-line/S-line stuff and BMW rebranding its upgraded engines as M Performance models. If everything is an M/AMG/S/RS then guess what? Nothing is.

BMW is also now putting pretty much all the full M content other than the powertrains into the M Lites and as you say all Ms are about to become comps and, naturally, go up in price even further. It’s a bit of a mess and manufacturers are already learning that their LOL CHARGE MOARRRRRRR model isn’t sustainable.

Well at least Dodge went all out. My 21′ Redeye Widebody Charger Hellcat comes with 797HP and a 50,000-mile powertrain warranty. Maybe since it’s only 797 HP, and not the mythical 800+, they can stretch that coverage out a bit over Ford’s offering lol. Either way, I welcome all the manufacturers that haven’t given up on big power numbers.

you kind of have to ask why they did not just make the GT500 again with this powerplant, I would be concerned a basic 5.0 GT would have more than a few items that would no longer stand the test of time with that much added power.

Agreed. Maybe I’m a baby but true base GTs that have essentially nothing but the V8 legitimately sketch me out. I wouldn’t want to own one, and message boards are filled with horror stories of blown transmissions, brakes not holding up, etc. It’s too much power for the platform from the factory…and now we’re adding this on top of it? Yikes….

I imagine an actual GT500 will come, and maybe a GT350 as well, although I doubt the Voodoo V8 is going to live on, which is a damn shame. That being said I honestly hope Ford makes you check some other boxes before you can equip this blower. The performance package and automatic should be mandatory (solely because the Getrag unit isn’t even rated for the GT’s stock power. Seriously.), and even then I don’t think it’ll hold up.

Mustangs are famous (infamous) for being under built, not over built.
