Whipple Supercharged 2024 Mustang ECU Tuned for Over 800 HP

Now that more and more examples of the S650 Mustang are hitting the streets, tuners can finally have their way with the seventh-generation pony. The first blower-aided application comes from Lethal Performance, who introduced a Whipple supercharged 2024 Mustang GT with an output of well over 800 hp.

From the factory, the Gen IV Coyote of the new Mustang GT makes at least 480 hp. And now, thanks to Florida-based Lethal Performance strapping a Whipple Gen 6 3.0-liter supercharger to the 5.0L V8, the 2024 Mustang GT makes in excess of 800 hp while offering the kind of instant throttle response we’ve come to associate with this kind of power adder.

And since we’ve seen the stock 2024 Mustang GT with the 10-speed automatic delivering low-12s quarter-mile times, we’re eager to see where the blower takes the pony as far as the drag strip is concerned.

The Whipple supercharger for the 2024 Mustang sports upgraded Bosch injectors that can pump 55 lbs of gas per hour, along with a dual-core intercooler, the same used for Whipple’s S550 Mustang blower kits.

As expected, the blower makes use of the Gen IV Coyote V8’s dual air intakes, which merge into a single throttle body before entering the supercharger. So yes, this engine bay will trigger symmetry fans. Note that only the 2024 Mustang Dark Horse adds dual throttle bodies and Lethal Performance is also working on a Whipple supercharger kit for this application, which produces 500 hp from the factory.

To be more precise, the 2024 Mustang gets three Whipple supercharger kits from the said developer. Stange 1 features a single 92mm throttle body from the S550 GT500, Stage 2 uses a billet 112mm round throttle body that sports GT500 electronics and there’s an optional 120mm throttle body for race applications.

The Gen 6 3.0L Whipple supercharger for the 2024 Mustang GT delivers 12 psi of boost, using a 3.75-inch pulley.

Ford included Whipple on the list of developers approved to tune the ECU of the 2024 Mustang’s Gen 4 Coyote V8

As you probably know, the Gen 4 Coyote V8 of the 2024 Mustang GT and Dark Horse has a locked ECU. Thus, Ford is only giving select aftermarket developers access and Whipple is on the list, so it can tune the 2024 Mustang’s ECU via its Tomahawk v.2 flash tool. As such, the company explains that the Stage 1 and Stage 2 supercharger kits have a 50-stage legal calibration.

While we wait for the said developer to release the final horsepower and pricing numbers for the 2024 Mustang Whipple blower kits, the clip below allows us to sample the soundtrack of the supercharged Gen IV Coyote V8. Hellcats beware!
