Anything is better than stock exhaust for a supercharger...

Borla wont sound super great IMO, and flowmaster won't flow that great for an f/i setup...

Re: mods for supercharging

Here's something I hijacked

Vortech
Pros
*Reliability. The Vortech is one dependable and tough cookie!
*Sound choice. If you like the loud, whining sound of a supercharger, the V1 will deliver. If you want a nice, quiet sleeper sound, you can get a V2. The v2 is slightly more efficient than a V1, but both have the same cost. I believe all newer kits come with the V2 by default
*Availability/Price. There seems to be several used 3.8 kits floating around which makes it easy to get an entire kit for a great price.
*Mounting. The Vortech mounts in a great location. It’s very easy to get to and easy to maintain. In fact, I dismounted and re-mounted mine several times all by myself with no problems.

Cons
*Modification of the A/C line. The kit requires you to modify and tap the A/C line in order to mount the blower. First of all, this is a pain to do. You really need a vice to get this done. Drilling and tapping steel is not easy. Secondly, if you don’t have every joint sealed up perfectly and tight, you WILL have A/C leaks. I LOVE the comfort of A/C, so this was a deal breaker for me. I just couldn’t get the A/C to quit having minor leaks, that’s why I sold the kit.
*Modification of the EGR line. This isn’t that bad really, just a nuisance. I deleted the EGR all together which really helped to clear some room in the engine bay.
*Tapping the Oil Pan. To be honest, it wasn’t hard at all and really could be a “Pro” instead of “Con” because now the Vortech gets a great oil supply which is freshened up every time you change the oil. It just depends on your perspective. Some people just don’t like hacking up their oil pan. Even if you miss-tap, you can still make the oil drain hose work fine, but I’ll put it here because it’s a common concern among inexperienced installers.
*Intercooling. Unfortunately, there are no mass produced intercooling kits available for the Vortech. Vortech makes an “aftercooler” which is a water-air cooler, but it is not available for the 3.8. There simply is no room to put it in between the blower and TB. Options are you can take it to Justin Starkey @ VelocityMustangPerformance.com located in FL for a custom kit, or make your own.

Tools Needed for Install Per Vortech
*3/8" socket and drive set: SAE and Metric
*1/2" socket and drive set: SAE and Metric
*3/8" and 1/2" breaker bars
*3/8" NPT Tap, 3/8-16 Tap and Handle
*Adjustable Wrench
*Open End Wrenches: 3/8", 7/16", 1/2", 9/16"
*Flat #2 Screwdriver
*Phillips #2 Screwdriver
*Heavy Grease
*Silicone Sealer
*Drill and 3/32", 5/16", 7/16", 9/16", 37/64 Bits
*Ford Springlock 3/8" fuel fitting disconnect tool
-or-
Lisle A/C and Fuel Disconnect Tool Set #37000
*5 Quarts SF Rated Quality Engine Oil
*Oil Filter and Wrench
*9/16" Rota-Broach
*T55 Torx Bit
*Tubing Cutter: o5/8" Tube
*Grinder
