MagnaCharger 2011 Mustang Supercharger

Just a few days ago we gave you a sneak peak of MagnaCharger’s new supercharger system for the 2011 Mustang, but we now have more details and plenty of photos. The system utilizes a unique design compared to other supercharger systems with its front inlet system. “We did a some out-of-the-box thinking on this kit,” said MagnaCharger’s Jon Barrett. “Instead of doing the traditional rear inlet style that most people are used to seeing, we went with a front inlet, front drive design. This enables us to get the straightest path possible for the air coming into the supercharger that increases air velocity and reduces the turbulence before it goes into the supercharger. This enables us to maximize the amount of power per pound of boost that we create.”

The front drive system also features a unique pulley design that maximizes belt wrap for minimal slip. “The way these idler pulleys are set up it will maintain at least 270 degrees of belt wrap on all the way down to a 2.8″ pulley, so no matter what boost you want to run it at it will maximize the belt coverage,” Barrett told us.

The Magnacharger supercharger system also differs from others in that they will offer several variations of the kit instead of just one basic system. Both the TVS 1900 and 2300 superchargers will be available, and Mustang owners can choose from three stages of performance. The basic system utilizes the stock intake system and throttle body and is expected to be 50 stage legal, while the Stage 2 uses an open element intake system and the Stage 3 adds an integrated 97mm throttle body for those that want the most horsepower.

Horsepower ratings are not available yet (until after EO testing is complete), but Barrett told us that the base system will produce between 6 and 7 pounds of boost and will add approximately 120-130 horsepower at the rear wheels. By our calculations, this should mean that 2011 Mustangs running the MagnaCharger system should produce around 460 to 470 horsepower at the rear wheels.

We will bring you more details about horsepower and pricing as soon as MagnaCharger releases them, but until them you can see photos of the new supercharger system below.
