These photos of the upcoming 2010 ROUSH Stage 3 Mustang are brought to you courtesy of Brad Barnett at TheMustangSource. What is immediately apparent is the much more menacing mug at the front. Deleting the fog lights in favor of a blacked-out billet grille really turns up the Clint Eastwood stare factor on the new Mustang, and we are big big fans. But the real news is waiting behind that black snout.
Historically, The Stage 3 is the top dog in a lineup which includes the “all-bark-and-no-bite” Stage 1, the “light-on-its-feet” Stage 2, and the ferocious 427R which includes as optional parts which come standard on the preeminent Stage 3. As in times past, these parts include a full aerodynamic package complete with front splitter, louvers, and rear spoiler, a complete suspension package, a big brake kit, and a power boost compliments of a Roots style supercharger.
Since the 2010 Mustang GT uses the same 4.6L modular V8 as the older model, ROUSH has a Supercharger handy for new Mustangs which boosts horsepower past the 400 mark. However, the word from ROUSH dealers is that this new Stage 3 will actually get the 510HP 4.6L TVS supercharged engine used in the 2009 P-51B, a hand-built engine featuring a larger Eaton/ROUSH blower and a forged bottom end. And like all ROUSH Mustangs, this one will come complete with an impressive 3 year/36,000 mile warranty.
