Secondly, im wondering about exhaust. Im not sure whether to go 2.25 on the diameter or 2.5 because there might be a little lag between getting my exhaust setup and going forced. If I go 2.5 and don't get supercharged right away, am I giving away alot of HP until i get it done?
Thirdly im wondering about other engine prep-work prior to supercharging, stuff that will prevent me from exploding or ****ing up the car. Suspension? Anything you guys can throw at me.
Fourth, im about to purchase my posi trac and gears, im literally about to place the order in the next few days is the Eaton-posi going to hold up to forced induction or should I go Detroit locker?
Thanks in advance.
2. You will be losing some bottom end power going with the larger exhaust
3. Depending on what your goal for the car is there are several things you can do. Number 1 would be to rebuild the engine with internals that can handle more power without messing up. You will be able to push a fairly decent amount of power through the stock engine, but it can and most likely will mess up if you start pushing the power level up.
Suspension is also a very good place to work on in the mustangs. It does you no good to have 500 hp if you can never go anywhere. A good suspension is just as important as a built engine.
4. If you plan on doing alot of track runs running dr's or slicks then you might want to look into buying a 8.8 rear end from a gt because it is able to handle the power much better without messing up.
