Stages and Phases: ROUSH Vehicle Packages and Superchargers Explained

The 2015-2017 ROUSH Mustang is built in four primary stages: The RS, RS1, RS2, and RS3. The descriptions of each and the foundation on which they’re based have changed rather drastically with the S550 platform, thanks to the introduction of the I-4 EcoBoost Mustang.

Fastlane crew visits ROUSH in Detroit

Fastlane has done initial dyno testing of its Supercharged ROUSH F150 with true Flex-Fuel capability. Our 2017 was built as a “flex fuel” vehicle but we had not seen any testing of a supercharged version. We have seen an increase of around 50rwhp on E85. We are also testing the calibration for seamless transition between 93 octane pump gas and E85.  This is an exciting development and allows supercharged F150 owners the added power of e85 fuel with the versatility of “pump gas” when e85 is not available. Latest dyno results show 542rwhp with the stock ROUSH pulley. So far we...

Listen Up! 1,000hp Hellcat on the Dyno!

Fastlane’s 2015 Hellcat Wails to the Redline - http://www.hotrod.com/features/1606-listen-up-1000hp-hellcat-on-the-dyno/ Fastlane, a tuning shop in Houston, made the claim to the first Hellcat in the 9s with a brutal 9.71-second pass at 143 mph. The video shows the Hellcat hitting four-digit horsepower levels in its most aggressive tune, although the 9.71-second pass was more conservative.
