X-CHARGER HI-PO PLUS without tuner (2.8 pulley 10-11 PSI)
The Hi-po Spec X-CHARGER uses a unique Cold Air Intake system with integral 84mm Mass Air housing, conical K&N airfilter and 3.5" ID rubber inlet hose.
THE INCREDIBLE EATON/MAGNUSON MP90 4TH GEN SUPERCHARGER
The Eaton supercharger head unit has been chosen as original equipment by many of the worlds major car manufactures. The reasons: superior output at lower RPMs, compact packaging, quiet operation and outstanding reliability. This Eaton supercharger was originally designed by Jerry Magnuson as the Magnacharger supercharger. Eaton Corporation bought his design and invested millions into further development and advanced machining processes. Eaton granted Magnuson Products the sole North American right to produce aftermarket Eaton superchargers. Rotor pack / gear case assemblies are supplied to Magnuson, who installs them into their proprietary design cases. Go to Eaton Superchargers
Carroll Shelby said "Horsepower sells cars, torque wins races". The X-CHARGER's torque makes street driving so much fun. No lag, no need to build RPMs for the power to come on. The throttle response is linear much like the stock engine, but with grin inducing power. Not to mention tire smoking burnouts and consistent, quick ETs at the track.
STOCK FUEL ECONOMY
Its hard to keep your foot out of the throttle because the X-CHARGERs power and response makes every drive a fun one. But if you can restrain yourself to your normal, pre X-C, driving style, the low power consumption at part throttle with the By-pass Valve open can yield the same fuel mileage as stock. Very low parasitic loses because the X-CHARGER uses less than 1/3 horsepower when off boost.
The X-CHARGER takes command of the engine compartment. Anyone looking under your hood will immediately know that its no ordinary Mustang. The classic supercharger profile is recognizable at a glance by almost everyone. The clean design and attention to detail give the X-CHARGER a factory installed appearance. left side view right side view
EASE OF INSTALLATION
The X-CHARGER kit was designed and refined to be installer friendly. Installation times of 6-10 hours have been reported by weekend warrior amateur mechanics. The Installation Manual is a clear step by step guide to a perfect installation that will be the envy of your friends when you pop the hood.
DETAILED INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
The X-CHARGER Installation Manual is 44 pages with over 130 color photos. Each step of disassembly and installation is clearly described and illustrated. The Installation Manual is aimed at the average home mechanic who takes pride in working on his own rig and will help you perform a reliable, professional quality installation.

CUSTOM SERIALIZED DASH PLAQUE
The X-CHARGER equipped Mustang is so tractable that your passenger may not be aware of what youve got under the hood (until you stand on it). Every kit comes with a custom laser cut and etched Dash Plaque bearing the unique serial number of your X-CHARGER.
X-CHARGER TORQUE SHELF
The Eaton based X-CHARGER produces boost at much lower RPMs than other types of blowers. That makes power and acceleration available on demand in almost every situation. This quality is often called instant torque. Take a look at our dyno charts. We start our pulls at 2000 RPM and the torque curve goes almost straight up and nearly straight across the RPM band. The Torque Shelf matches the stock torque converter stall speed very well for great street performance with automatic transmissions and consistent, linear response with both automatic and manual transmissions.

The X-CHARGER features a built-in internal By-pass Valve that relieves boost pressure whenever there is vacuum in the discharge manifold. Vacuum exists under part throttle or closed throttle conditions, such as cruise, deceleration, idle and coast. The supercharger is being mechanically driven fast enough to produce boost, but the boost pressure is being diverted. When the throttle is opened vacuum drops to zero, the By-pass Valve closes and boost is introduced into the engine. The result: instant power and acceleration. The By-pass Valve function results in very low 1/3 horsepower required to drive the supercharger and stock-like fuel mileage with By-pass open. View By-pass Valve
BOOST ON DEMAND
The By-pass Valve operation is controlled by throttle opening. The driver controls the throttle. The X-CHARGED Mustang can be meek and mild enough to idle along in traffic, wicked enough to teach rice burners to respect Detroit iron.
TOP QUALITY COMPONENTS
Each individual part of the X-CHARGER kit is the best available and easily equal to original equipment quality. From the extensive use of CNC machined parts, expensive zinc plated flange head bolts, to the custom diecut gaskets, every single part is the best quality available.
NO EXTRA PARTS REQUIRED
The X-CHARGER supercharger kit includes every single part, from special spark plugs, top quality electrical connectors and premium quality hardware, to a drivebelt routing and octane warning stickers, necessary for installation. No hidden costs, no trips to the parts store.
The X-CHARGER is basically silent. It makes a slight growl at idle and is very quiet at part throttle. The unique Eaton banshee howl at wide open throttle has proven to be slightly addictive.
1/4 MILE ACCELERATION
At the drag strip a CA spec X-CHARGER equipped 4.0 will walk stock or mildly modified GTs. Our X-CHARGER owners have turned mid to high 13 second quarter miles, with stock 3.31 gear ratio and open differential, stock except for aftermarket lower control arms.
EASY ENGINE ACCESS
The X-CHARGER location on the top of the engine leaves a lot of room in the engine compartment and allows stock-like access to engine components like spark plugs and drivebelt. This not only makes routine service easier, it also avoids the something crammed into every square inch" look of some other s/c systems.
The Mustang X-CHARGER is the same basic design as our Ranger and Sport Trac X-CHARGER. The Rangers and Tracs have logged hundreds of thousands of miles of reliable service. Plus, the Eaton/Magnuson supercharger has the longest life and best history of reliability of any supercharger. The Eaton head unit is used on many factory applications from the new GT500s, to Lightnings, Cobras and many more.
MODERATE WEIGHT INCREASE
The complete X-CHARGER weighs just 55 lbs. About 10 lbs of stock parts are removed to install the X-C. The low 45 lb net weight gain is spread along the longitudinal axis of the engine. Other designs locate all of their weight on the very front of the car which changes the car's weight distribution and polar moment of inertia.
EXCLUSIVE X-SPEC TUNING
Master tuner Doug Studdard founder of BamaChips Tuning has spent many hours dyno and road testing the X-CHARGER systems. The tune from Doug is very well developed and on the conservative side for extended engine life and awesome response and performance. Plus, several safeguards are built into the tuning to protect your engine.
HIGH OUTPUT OPTIONS
Explorer Express offers high output options for the Mustang X-CHARGER from smaller pulleys for higher boost levels to dialed in water injection systems. Plus special tuning calibrations to reach elevated power levels safely.
UNLIMITED TECHNICAL ASSISTANCE
Every X-CHARGER includes unlimited technical assistance. Whether you have a tech question or would just like to make a comment, the X-CHARGER designer, Dave Vanek, is available to assist you.
CALIFORNIA SPEC OR HIGH PERFORMANCE MODELS
The X-CHARGER is available as a CARB exempted, smog legal California model and as a Hi-po version with higher output. California emissions requirements are not just required in California, check your local regulations.
NO DRILLING OF OIL PAN OR TAPPING OIL PASSAGES
The X-CHARGER is entirely self contained. No drilling or tapping required. No risk of metal shavings entering the engine or oil leaks.
NO SPECIAL MAINTENANCE NECESSARY
The X-CHARGER does not require any special maintenance. The supercharger head unit gearcase oil should be changed at 100,000 miles.
The Magnuson MP90 head unit comes with a 12,000 mile / 12 month limited warranty. The K&N air filter has a one year / unlimited mileage limited warranty.
