Does this sound right? Help!!!????

So I have an 06 gt

My mods:
Steeda Cold air intake
Bbk Headers
Mac exhaust(sounds like sex)
I have a diablo predator
Hurst shifter(I know, no hp.. Just throwing it in)

I dynoed it.. And only got 296.9 rwhp

That's what it should be, but I was expecting a lot more

I think it's less than 280 at the crank stock. I believe it's closer to 270. So you're probably close with your mods

Just leave stock and put a supercharger on it. Best bang for the buck. I had American thunder flow masters and 373 gears. My last run for the season was 12.4@114. I have one for sale.

I'm selling my V3 Vortech System becasuse I traded the car in for a 2011 Mustang GT convertible and took everything out. The stuff only has 10,000 miles on them. The car was not a DD.

05-10 V3 Vortech package 3999.00
Mustang GT V3 H.O Charge cooler upgrade 1800.00
10 PSI super charger pulley with Mafia MAF extender 292.00
Brisk Plugs 135.00
also have 8 & 10 PSI pulley
2 bottles of Oil

On a stock motor with 12 PSI pulley, the car was dynoed at 527RWHP/451 torque. I have the dyno sheet. Nothing like adding this system to your car. I loved the power.

THIS IS A HUGE BARGAIN! IF INTERESTED SHOOT ME A PM

The kit was over 6,500.00 and I'm asking 4500.00

No reason to be disappointed, you may get a little extra with better tune. But you really have not added any HP mods. Headers and CAI add a little but they really just help the motor breath better, and help when other mods are added.

That sounds about right. A dyno tune will probably add a few HP, and improve some lines, but really depends on whether you have a good tuner and how much he charges as to whether it's worth the cash.

If you aren't running an O/R mid or high flow cats, those will help.

But I think you are a little too focused on #'s. They don't matter! A little suspension work and DR's (with a good driver mod) you are in the low 12's. THAT is what matters.

I agree, that does sound right. I've seen some stock Mustangs with some pretty surprising numbers. The lowest I've seen had 260 RWHP or so, and the highest I've seen had like 280+ HP. Some Mustangs are just unlucky and some are factory freaks.

V3 vortech

Not for nothing, but how is a V2 a better deal than a V3 unit+ charge cooler and additional parts and its not beat on.

Everything I bought in the kit is included except 1/2 spacer and IAT sensor and tuner.

I prefer the twin screw superchargers. If I could afford it i would buy the Roots(Roush) Supercharger kit. I work with roots products and they make some excellent equipment.

Does going FI decrease the longevity of the engine, probably a stupid question but knowledge never hurts.

It is a little bit harder on the motor but with a great tune you should be ok

If you go with a low psi it's not really much different wear on the engine. It's when you start pushing the internals to their HP/Torque limits is when you shorten the engine life.

As long as its balanced with a good tune that doesn't stress the internals you are fine. Look at all new cars coming out with small engines that are turbo charged. FI is going to be the way of the future in order for car manufacturers to meet the new EPA guidelines.

oh just let it be ENJOYED !! you have to find someone with the money to buy it, that happens to own a s197, that happens to actually want to supercharge it, then they need to know how to install it or pay more money

just all the stuff I considered when just moving on...

I remember reading it before, did you buy it new or get it with a car you bought ?

BTW I LOVE MY 2.8 LC KENNE BELL MAMMOTH ... just saying ))

I bought it new and installed it myself. I have all the paper work on how to install. Fairly easy to install.

As a couple people already stated; Forced Induction can go either way. Superchargers are musch easier to install and maitain. They work off of the crankshaft so as soon as you turn the key, instant power. Where as a turbo has to "spool up" since its powered by your exhaust pressure. Almost all turbos require a direct oil line from the motor to lubricate them. Most superchargers are self lubricated, like the twin screw superchargers. But as long as you don't get too crazy and crank up the boost, running btween 4-8 psi is pretty safe for stock internals. They will wear down faster versus regular induction. lets face it, you're forcing more air and fuel into the motor. I think the 4.6 can safely handle about 480hp at the crank, but thats pushing it. If you want to push more than that, you'll need forged internals, bigger injectors, new fuel rails, clutch, flywheel....etc etc. I think the Roush screw superchargers produce between 435-475 at the crank. Check out AM, they have full kits if you're interested. If you've got the coin, go for it. Your pony will be unlike nothing you've ever experienced before. I've got a buddy with a twin turbo 04 Cobra....badass!!

Don't you mean 480 at the wheels?
