Ford regaled Mustang fans with news of the nameplate’s return for a new generation starting with the 2024 model year. However, the seventh-generation ‘Stang, or S650, rolled out sans supercharger or Shelby badge. That said, Ford unveiled the FP800S Concept at the 2023 SEMA show, leaving buyers and enthusiasts drooling for a supercharged solution to their naturally aspirated “problem.” However, a new Ford Performance kit will turn an S650 model into the supercharged Ford Mustang of your dreams.

For 2024, the Blue Oval isn’t offering a supercharged Ford Mustang in its standard lineup (EcoBoost, GT, Dark Horse). Instead, the entry-level Mustang EcoBoost develops its 315 horsepower from a turbocharged four-cylinder engine. At the 5.0L Coyote V8-powered trims, the GT and Dark Horse produce 480 and 500 horsepower, respectively. However, shrewd pony car shoppers will opt for the GT’s performance exhaust system, which bumps output to 486 horsepower. 

Still, the 2024 Ford Mustang lineup goes without a Shelby badge, and, consequently, a supercharged S650 option. Sure, the new Ford Mustang GTD boasts a supercharger. But the spectacularly spendy, road-legal Mustang range-topper has more in common with a racecar than it does with the V8-powered Mustang GT and Dark Horse models.

However, Ford’s new supercharger kit promises to swell the power output of a 5.0L Coyote V8-powered GT to around 810 horsepower and 615 lb-ft of torque. It’s a stratospheric 324-horsepower improvement over the GT with a performance exhaust system. The kit includes a 92mm throttle body and GT500 port fuel injectors. That’s in addition to the Whipple-sourced 3.0L supercharger, per Car and Driver.

As expected, 800+ horsepower in a supercharged S650 Mustang doesn’t come cheap. Ford sells the kits for near as makes no difference $10,000. Still, considering the 2024 Ford Mustang GT starts at around $43,555, the kit is one of the best ways to get over 800 horsepower in a Mustang with a warranty. Unsurprisingly, California customers are out of luck. Ford Performance says the modifications aren’t legal for drivers in the Golden State.
