Lot #1575.1 - #104 of only 151 built. The Roush Performance P-51A Mustang is easily one of the highest horsepower Mustangs that the company has ever produced, and represents the first time that internal engine components have been upgraded by Roush technicians in their Livonia, MI facility. It was determined that the only way to give the P-51A moniker its due was to completely break into the 4.6 Liter 3V and rebuild several of the functional internal components, which include a forged steel 8- bolt crankshaft, forged aluminum pistons with increased dish to lower the compression from 9.8 to 8.6, and forged steel H-beam connecting rods. These upgraded parts were necessary for the stock Ford engine, which comes with 300hp from the factory, to be able to withstand the additional power generated from the newest iteration of the legendary RoushCharger Supercharger system. Additional alterations include a custom aluminum upper and lower intake manifold for the high capacity air-to-water inter-cooler and RoushCharger. Roush installs a custom fuel rail and high-flow Fuel Injectors, a high-flow capacity fuel system, as well a dual electronic throttle body. The new Roush P-51A engine has a preliminary rating of at least 510hp and 510 lb/ft of torque. It is anticipated that final figures may even be slightly higher than this when final testing and calibration is approved by the Roush engineering staff. The changes to the Roush P-51A don't end under the hood. A Roush aerobody kit was installed, which includes a front fascia, chin spoiler, hood scoop and rear spoiler. The Roush black high flow grille is added along with cooling side shields to give the car the aggressive look it needs while stalking the streets. Internally the car comes with Roush sport leather seating and custom floor mats, both with an embroidered P-51A emblem. The white face gauges and billet aluminum pedals will get a lot of use as the driver bangs through the gears with the Roush short-throw shift lever and retro black ball. For those who look behind the 18" Roush forged 5-spoke wheels will see the vaunted Stage 3 suspension underneath this vehicle. Designed to handle even the tightest twists and turns, the suspension includes specially-engineered and tuned front struts, rear shocks, front and rear springs, front and rear sway bars, and jounce bumpers. The front brakes are also upgraded with 14" front 2-piece rotors and 4-piston calipers. Each component was specifically engineered so that ride comfort was not compromised at the expense of the tremendous gains in performance. Proceeds from the sale of this special vehicle will benefit The Speedway Children's Charities which is provides funding for hundreds of non-profit organizations throughout the nation that meet the direct needs of children. Their vision is that every child has the same opportunities no matter what obstacle they are facing.
