Jack Roush created Roush Performance Products in 1995 and worked with Ford dealers to offer 3 different stages of upgrades for the period Mustang GT (SN95). For the SVT Cobra, Roush offered a unique package known as the “Roush Cobra Mustang Package” (shown here) which added up to 100hp over the base Cobra thanks to a Vortech Supercharger (“Roushcharger”)
This package can be distinguished by the side exhaust exit, custom rear bumper, bespoke rear wing, 18″ Roush wheels and a trunk tool kit. While a standard Roush Mustang GT could be had with the same aforementioned items, a genuine Roush Cobra will retain the OEM Cobra front bumper and Cobra snake fender emblems
Jack Roush began as an engine development engineer at Ford Motor Company before evolving into a highly successful racer. His credentials are nowhere short of incredible: the Roush Racing team has won 24 championships since 1984, as well as 325 Cup Series victories, 5 NASCAR owner championships, and 3 NASCAR driver’s Championships. He was also partially responsible for pioneering the roof flaps that disrupt airflow and prevent stock cars from going airborne (found on all modern NASCAR stock cars). It’s of no surprise that Jack Roush was inducted into both the Automotive Hall of Fame and NASCAR Hall of Fame
According to Mustang Engine Supervisor John Hasse, developing the Cobra’s DOHC Cobra engine took nearly 4 years. The engine blocks are imported from Italy, and both the head and block castings are supplied by Texit (a division of Fiat)
The Cobra’s V8 was produced off-line using a dozen two-member teams. Each team builds one engine from start to finish, and then signs it off. It was a very similar procedure used by Aston Martin, who was owned by Ford at the time
