Re: supercharger

in my honest opinion... its a waste of money to supercharge a v6. the suspension, the rear end, the tranny. hell everything on that car is not built to take that power. v6 mustangs were built for normal driving. they didnt have the sporty suspension and rear diff to take that power. and the tranny from what i heard cant take very much, if you want a lot of power and something worth supercharging go with a cobra or gt. my opinion.

Well u still have to stuff to gt,the v6 engine can take abuse I understand but I think that like 8 psi around 260 hp is pretty good

Yeah just don't do much more. If I remember right the tranny is only good to about 300hp. And besides. The gt in 96 to 01 had 280 hp stock. Then the supercharger gets them close to 500hp

You are WAY off on your HP.

1996 Ford Mustang
1999 Ford Mustang

1996-1998 had 215 HP stock. 1999-2004 had 260 HP stock. That is not counting the drivetrain loss.

Lol my bad. I was looking at cobra stats. 315 hp and I was figuring around 280 with drivetrain loss

With some bolt on plus the supercharger the v6 could get around 300 hp and great mpg

Re: supercharger

10psi you are looking at about 280rwhp with a supercharger (manual trans less for auto) which is fine... but you will get used to that VERY quickly and you will have spend 6k to get there.

Sell the car, save the 6k and buy something else that will hold the value better (6k = lost mostly as you dont increase the value of the car with a supercharger add on)

Thats just what I decided to do when I had my 01 v6. Sucks but just save for now and enjoy the car then get something else better down the road.

Even 05+ GT's are only 300 crank~
