They had a concept car, but it wasn't a viable proposition or they would have gone further to make it work. My guess was that they realized they couldn't get more power out of the supercharger than the turbocharger on the ST. SVT's headquarters/ office in Allen Park is located at a Roush facility, and therefore Roush does a lot of their development work in their garage for Ford and SVT. There is enough room for differentiation between the Mustang Boss 302, GT500 and the Roush Stage 1-3 Mustangs, however there likely wasn't enough room for the ST and the Roush Supercharged Focus.

So the supercharger is a possibility, it just isn't worth it because the gains would be limited and have side effects right? And the car would need a tune to help maximize the gains and no one has a tune for car correct.

A DIRECT INJECTED ENGINE IS NOT NEW TECHNOLOGY. I ASK THE QUESTION THAT HOW CAN A DIESEL HAVE A TURBO WITH VERY HIGH COMPRESSION. ANSWER: DIFFERENT HEAD DESIGN, HEAD STUDS, BETER GASKETS, TUNING, TUNING, TUNING. A TURBO ON OUR CARS IS NOT A BAD IDEA IF YOU HAVE THE $$$ TO PUT INTO IT. MYSELF, I WANT A N/A CAR THAT HAS MORE THAN THE ST.

Back on topic now. I have done KSport coilovers, TSW 18X8 et40 wheels, removed the airbox top with OEM filter, removed the rear muffler and had a straight pipe installed in its place, OBX header, and SOLID (NO BUSHINGS AT ALL) engine torque mount. In that order.

I plan to put the factory mount back on today. The solid one was just to see "what if". I do not recommend it unless the car is tracked only and you plan to have a rattle trap car in a few years.
