Eaton has revealed that its Twin Vortices Series (TVS) R2650 supercharger technology will feature on the Ford Performance-tuned, 5.2-liter V8 engine that powers the all-new 2020 Shelby GT500.
An evolution of the TVS platform, the Eaton TVS R2650 supercharger is equipped with a patented rotor coating for improved efficiency. The high-twist, four-lobe rotor design is 15% larger than the TVS 2300 supercharger found on the previous Shelby GT500 and features several efficiency and performance improvements.
To help deliver the performance required, the Eaton technology has a 170° helical twist of its rotors, which is 10° greater than previous TVS rotors. Other upgrades include bearing plate pressure relief points that reduce trapped volume pressure and optimized sealing for better flow efficiency.
In GT500 application, the TVS R2650 provides up to 12psi of boost, helping the eight-cylinder engine to produce 777ps and 847Nm of torque.
“We are proud to collaborate with Ford Performance to help it produce the most powerful Mustang ever,” said Karl Sieversten, chief technology officer at Eaton’s Vehicle Group. “As the world leader in supercharger production, we are committed to innovation that helps our customers achieve the best possible performance.”
