Lately the 2015 Mustang has received a lot of power-adder love from the aftermarket. We recently covered the installation of the as-delivered ProCharger HO kit with the stalwart P-1SC supercharger. That got us wondering what this kit would do with the next blower in the company’s rotation—the D-1SC. Fortunately, our friends at Evolution Performance put together just such a combination.
A customer brought in a Guard Metallic 2015 Mustang GT with Performance Package and wanted a supercharger installed. As such, Evolution chose one of ProCharger’s tuner kits with the aforementioned D-1SC head unit.
If you aren’t familiar with the blower hierarchy at ProCharger, the P-1SC is good for up to 30 pounds of boost and up to 825 horsepower, while the D-1SC maxes out at 32 psi and 925 horsepower. Obviously the D-1SC takes things up a notch, but not so far that it’s not streetable.
“The goal was to build a well-rounded street car for our customer with drivability and reliability the number one goal,” Fred Cook, of Evolution Performance, explained.
Opting for the tuner kit meant they could customize the system to further enhance its performance. To the supercharger they added a T-Bolt Clamp Upgrade Kit, a set of colder NGK spark plugs, a set of Injector Dynamics 100 lb/hr fuel injectors, a JMP Chip & Performance Fuel Max fuel pump voltage booster, a 170-degree thermostat, and a Flash Power programmer serving as the conduit for a custom tune.
While custom tuning a power-adder 2015 Mustang is a bit more complex due to the new programming inside the TriCor PCM, Evolution has long had the support Lund Racing to calibrate its high-performance machines.
“When you have the best Ford calibrator in the business—Jon Lund of Lund Racing—the challenges are minimal,” Fred said.
With the Evolution-spec ProCharger system in place and Jon’s tune in the PCM, this 2015 Mustang GT put down some impressive rear-wheel numbers. Watch it run on the dyno right here…
“We’re very happy with the results and so is the customer,” Fred added. “The car drives great and the power is very linear.”
