Howling Coyote: Ford Mustang, F-150 getting 700-hp supercharger

  Howling Coyote: Ford Mustang, F-150 getting 700-hp supercharger Ford Performance and Roush reveal blower at SEMA.Ford Performance and Roush announced at SEMA that they have developed a supercharger kit for the 5.0-liter Coyote V8 engine in the 2018 Mustang and F-150.
