This Phase 1 Supercharger Kit is part of the Twin Vortices Series line developed by ROUSH Performance in collaboration with Eaton. Used for years on its F-150 and Mustang performance vehicles, this proven rotor technology delivers more power and better fuel economy in a highly engineered, proven package.
The Phase 1 supercharger gives drivers instant throttle response and increased power throughout the engine’s power band. This 2.65-liter supercharger is a roots-type, positive-displacement supercharger that features twin four-lobe rotors that twist 170 degrees. The innovative fourth lobe and added twist allow for a more efficient and robust system with improved noise and vibration characteristics. Additionally, a newly designed, high-flow front inlet enhances thermal and volumetric capacity across the full RPM range for better efficiency.
“It is Jack Roush’s lifelong passion for highly engineered, powerful performance to be the driving force of ROUSH Performance,” Tony Marszalek, Executive Director of Aftermarket Products, said. “Thousands of hours of research and testing went into the development of this ROUSH supercharger, including testing in extreme environmental conditions to ensure quality and performance in all locations — on or off the road.”
The kit is backed by a three-year, 36,000-mile complete powertrain warranty when installed by an authorized dealer. All ROUSH Performance parts are said to be designed and rigorously tested at the component level for extreme durability, reliability and emissions compliance. The fully integrated kit includes all necessary installation hardware, as well an exclusive ROUSH Performance calibration.
