The 2015 Mustang is one of the most powerful cars you can buy from a factory with a warranty, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t want more power! Luckily for you, there are already a bunch of great power adders available on the market for your S550 Mustang. From turbochargers to superchargers and nitrous oxide kits, there are plenty of ways to make your 2015 Mustang one of the fastest around. The question is, which will you choose?
The S550 Mustang once again presented to the world a turbocharged 4-cylinder, that puts out more power than earlier V8s. While a boosted 4 cylinder pony is one mean ride, there is still no replacement for displacement when it comes to making power, which is why turbocharging your V8 will deliver you more power than you know what to do with.
Hellion’s 2015 Mustang GT Twin Turbo Kit was on of the first on the market for the sixth gen Mustang, and is still one of the most potent packages available. With the choice between 55mm and 62mm turbos, Hellion’s system is capable of delivering 500-1,200+ RWHP with a smooth, yet brutal power band.
Superchargers and Mustangs go together like peanut butter and jelly; as long as there have been Mustangs, there has been someone to throw a supercharger on one, and the 2015 is no different. When it comes to superchargers you have two main options, a roots style blower and a centrifugal style supercharger. Roots style blowers tend to make more down low torque and replace your 2015 Mustang’s Intake Manifold. Centrifugal superchargers, function more like a turbo in how the power hits and are belt driven off of the front of your engine.
AmericanMuscle has a growing selection of roots style blowers, but a personal favorite is the Bama Performance Supercharger Kit. Powered by a 2.9L Whipple Unit, the Bama Performance Supercharger Kit delivers up to 800 HP and enough torque to lift the front wheels. If you are more interested in centrifugal supercharger, Procharger’s High Output Stage II Intercooled Kit will have you shredding tires and destroying 1/4 mile times.
Nitrous Oxide Kits
One of the oldest, most tried and true methods of making more power is Nitrous Oxide. Increasing the octane of your fuel, Nitrous is an easy and cost effective way to go fast and have fun. Nitrous Outlets’s 2015 Mustang Nitrous System will deliver an extra 50-250 RWHP through a Wet Plate set up.
Picking The Perfect Setup For You
With so many options for how you can boost your 2015 Mustang, it can be tough to pick the right one for you. Ultimately, picking the right power adder comes down to what you want to do with your Mustang. If you’re looking for nothing more than a straight line race car, than a Nitrous Setup is for you. With low cost of entry and a high power yield, Nitrous is an easy way to go fast, quickly.
If you want to go fast in quarter mile and also have some fun on the street, that a roots style blower or turbocharger setup is the route for you. A turbocharged V8 will deliver you ungodly amounts of power, while being the least parasitic to the rest of your powertrain. A roots blower will deliver raw, unforgiving power from the very bottom of your RPM range making it a beast of a setup for racing.
If you are looking for big, yet not ludicrous power, than a centrifugal setup is the route for you. With power that you ease into, hitting hard in the mid-range and higher RPMs, a centri blower will feel right at home on a track or on the street. Regardless, no matter how you look at it you can’t go wrong with any type of boost!
