Another supercharer question..

So I've been doing some research on them, and I know some basics. I wanna know if the vortech V5-F kit will fit on my car, and if this is a good used price. The website says it will handle up to a 4.0L engine, but i would rather run it all by you first. Will I get good gains for it? It says up to 14lbs of boost. That's too much for my all stock engine? Any help would be great

While it is possible to buy the parts to make this work on your car, it wouldn't be worth it. All you would be able to use is the blower unit itself off that auction and you would still need new brackets, piping, fuel delivery, the works. It would be far more expensive to do properly than this kit costs. I also really don't trust used blowers. I would get a kit designed for your car or do a V8 swap.

by the time you buy all the stuff you need to make it work on your car you would be better off buying the one that is for your specific motor.

Alright, thanks you guys. I wasn't sure how everything would fit it such. I'm just going to save up for a proper kit like you recommended probably. Just for s**** and giggles, if I wanted to do a full v8 swap, how much would I be looking at spending

for the 3.8L you are ok at 11psi with intercooler if the tune is spot on and you have all the fuel upgrades needed. With a stock motor and exhaust that will put you around 280-300rwhp (manual trans less if auto by 5-10%)

gotta get that tune spot on and you need an intercooler for sure.

I wouldnt waste my time on a 2v 4.6L GT motor swap, aim for at least a 4v 4.6L from a mach or 96-98 cobra, or even a built 5.0L from a 94/95 GT perhaps~

This may be a silly question, but if I were to do a v8 swap, would my insurance go up drastically? Insurance was the main reason why I don't get a v8 in the first place. It's crazy expensive. Would I have to put it in writing or something saying i did the swap on a v6 car to increase the power? I'm new to most of this.. Lol

Why would you even bother telling them you swapped the engine? You VIN says v6 so that is what you have and if you wreck the car they are going to give you a v6 blue book value, not any money for the mods you put in.

I'm asking to see if it's an obligation or anything to tell them about the swap

I don't know if you are obligated to but if you own the car outright I personally wouldn't bother telling them. Now if the bank/lender owns the car then I would wait to pay it off before I do an engine swap lol.

It depends on the insurance company. My company asks if i have spent more than 5000$ modifying the car to make more power. So someday I will have to come clean. But my insurance will only go up 6$ a month.

That's not bad.. It would probably be a lot more for a teen, though

Yeah. I've got a clean record and am now 25. My full time dd mach 1 costs me less than 75$/Mo. I have 2 defensive driving courses, 1 high performance driving course and a track certification that all knocks my insurance down.

If you dont tell them its insurance fraud, aka illegal.

Also when they find out youve been in an accident and had not reported the swap, they will deny your claim so you get nothing. Ive seen this happen several times.

Nah. They dont care about that kinda stuff. Motor swap or forced induction, anything a claims adjuster is trained to look for that is obvious.

Insurance companies are out to make money, not lose it. So if they can find a reason to deny a claim they will, and they try to find a way not to pay trust me.
