ROUSH Performance introduces the new 2012 ROUSH Stage 3 Ford Mustang. The 5.0-liter 4-valve DOHC TiVCT engine has received clearance for takeoff with the addition of the R2300 ROUSHcharger, force-feeding up to 12psi of inter-cooled energy to the already robust Coyote engine. The ROUSHcharger supercharger induction system increases the base horsepower from 412HP to an impressive 540HP and 465 ft/lbs of torque. To enjoy the ride, ROUSH Stage 3 (RS3) vehicle owners enjoy peace of mind with ROUSH’s 3 year/36,000 mile power train warranty.
