Roush Stage 3 Blackjack Mustang

If this has been posted before, LMK. I don't recall seeing this one.

Menacing Roush Stage 3 Blackjack Mustang
Written by Administrator
Monday, 19 February 2007

LIVONIA, Mich. – If Batman owned a Mustang, the new 2007 ROUSH Stage 3 BlackJack would most certainly be the ride of choice for the Caped Crusader. This menacing 430 horsepower tone-on-tone limited edition pony car comes straight from the mind of Jack Roush himself and is set to stalk the streets of Gotham City, and the rest of the country.

Jack Roush had the vision, and the ROUSH Stage 3 BlackJack Mustang is the result. He personally developed the content of this black-on-black car, and a prototype build was his vehicle of choice while at many of the NASCAR Nextel Cup events during the 2006 season. That particular Mustang recently ended up on the Barrett-Jackson auction block as an extremely collectible one-of-a-kind car. Now, ROUSH Performance is set to offer a limited edition run of 100 ROUSH Stage 3 BlackJack Mustangs, all of which have been pre-sold through their ROUSH-authorized Ford dealer base.

"I am involved with all the vehicles that ROUSH Performance builds, but the Stage 3 BlackJack is really the first one which was entirely my design and I am quite proud of how well it turned out," said Jack Roush. "When I drove the prototype around the NASCAR tracks last season it got a lot of attention, mainly due to the intimidating theme of the car. Of course, the distinctive rumble of a ROUSHchargedTM V-8 engine turns a lot of heads, too. "

Jack Roush’s heritage as the winningest name in racing reverberates throughout the vehicle, starting with the powertrain which is what ROUSH Performance is so well known for. The polished ROUSHchargerTM system with a smaller pulley boosts the horsepower to 430 (with 400 lb.-ft. torque) which is the most in the history of the company. This system includes a Roots-style M90 supercharger, 38 lb.-hr. fuel injectors, ROUSH-designed intake manifold, intercooler assembly with radiator and a custom ROUSH ECM calibration to maximize optimal fuel and spark.

Aesthetics were also a big part of Roush’s vision for the Stage 3 BlackJack, starting with the matte black 21-inch stripe across the center of the black paint and the addition of the seven-piece ROUSH aerobody kit. Polished billet aluminum accessories, such as radiator, oil and strut tower caps, can be found throughout the engine compartment which contributes to the exciting package for street or track driving. Enthusiast drivers will immediately notice the handling of the vehicle has been improved by the addition of the Stage 3 suspension package which swaps out the stock front struts, rear shocks, front and rear springs, front and rear sway bar and jounce bumpers for ROUSH-engineered high performance versions.

Roush was also adamant about including the new ROUSH wheel hop reduction kit to help the rear wheel performance in low traction conditions. This is the only wheel hop kit on the market with a minimal NVH (noise, vibration and harshness) hit and no reduction in bushing life. Other manufacturers trade off anti-hop for a lot of noise, harshness and poor durability of the joints. The stopping rate is greatly improved with the addition of the ROUSH brake kit, a 14-inch, two-piece slotted rotor with four-piston calipers on the front and slotted rear rotors.

Interior upgrades include charcoal leather seating with an embroidered Stage 3 BlackJack logo, white electroluminescent gauges, billet aluminum pedal kit and short throw shifter with black shifter ball. The car comes standard with the ROUSH carbon fiber design dash trim kit and embroidered floor mats. Even the door sills have been upgraded in this model.

A ROUSH Stage 3 BlackJack serialized badge is riveted to the engine compartment, along with a Stage 3 signature badge which is personally engraved with the signature of the ROUSH Performance technician which hand-assembled the vehicle in the company’s Livonia, Mich., facility. To further validate the 100 cars, each will come with a Certificate of Authenticity signed by Jack Roush.

Once you get behind the wheel you will immediately see why we claim that " Between a race car and a road car… Is a ROUSH car."

Based in Livonia, Mich., "The Art of Performance Engineering" takes place at ROUSH Performance. In addition to the Stage 1, Stage 2 and Stage 3 Ford Mustang and F-150 styling, handling and performance upgrades, a complete line of performance parts and crate engines are offered. For more information see your local ROUSH dealer, visit www.RoushPerformance.com or telephone toll-free (800) 59-ROUSH.

I just saw that in the current issue of Mustang Monthly. It's one of the few body kitted new Mustangs that I like.

Nice looking car!
I'm presuming a super charger or "roush charger" to get it to 430.

HA....that's all I have to say. Well, no not really.
This mustang has gotten so many facelifts...I just don't see a Mustang anymore, I see a joke - and a single-choice option for these modding companies. Come on GM, let's aleviate their fustration, bring 'em an underrated 430 hp N/A LS3, and let the companies have at it. Now THAT will be fun to watch WHOOO!

On a 3V that is true at the moment. The highest N/A numbers on the new 3 valve mustang GTs is approximately 345rwhp or about 390ish bhp. However the cost for you to make that much power N/A is nearly as much as a blower setup which will get you 425 hp to the rear wheels.

An older 4 valve DOHC mustang can make that much power N/A. It too is fairly expensive, but can be done. And there are documented performance recipies on how to do it.

Again, a supercharger is the cheapest and easiest way to do it. That is why it is the most common.

Also the roush charger is the weakest most inefficient of the blower setups on the new Mustangs. 430bhp from a blower is actually pretty conservative for the new platform.

Most people with the new Mustangs opt for Saleen, Whipple, or Kenne Bell superchargers. There are reputable tuners that can safely make 400-450 rear wheel horse on the stock bottom end and the appropriate fuel upgrades (usually new injectors and a sometimes a fuel pump).

I know most of you don't like Mustangs, but I thought I would share some insight.

I have a friend with an '05 GT and he was tellin me it was a pain to modify because you need a dyno tune for nearly every mod you make to get the most out of it. Where you could get away with a cam swap and full exhaust in a 4th gen F-body(not suggested but you could still drive it without it running like total crap and get decent performance), You would need to get tuned for say... a cold air intake and a cat-back. I don't know how true this really is but this guy was pretty adamant about it.

For the most part he is telling the truth, but it isn't as bad as it might sound since plenty of tuners offer updated tunes without having to get on a dyno and custom tune the car. You just need to have a programming tool, load the tune into the programmer from free downloadable computer software, and load into your car....easy peasy. Of course a custom dyno tune will squeeze out that last bit of potential, but you can do well without.

A tune is necessary for a CAI on a new Mustang, because a CAI actually improves the airflow on that engine so much it screws with the air fuel ratios significantly and the ECU has to be corrected. A CAI/tune combo on a new Mustang will give the new mustang about 20-25 rwhp and 25-30 torque and significantly reduce throttle lag from the stock drive-by-wire programming.

The only exhaust modification that might really need a tune are long tube headers or off-road catless mid-pipes, but it isn't really necessary. The biggest thing a tune would do is make adjustments so that the O2 sensors don't get messed up readings which may or may not happen anyway.

It's all good. I'm waiting for the Camaro too after all, but since my hobby has me dealing with Mustangs at the moment I like sharing what I know about the "other side."
