Forged internals needed?

On the hellion turbo kit from AM, if you were to install it on a bone stock GT would you need forged internals? My car isn't all stock but I'm just curious... I'm deciding between that turbo or a S/C.... The supercharger sais it's good on a stock GT. no forged internals needed.

Depends how much boost your pushing and your tune. On lowest boost settings and intercooled you can do it on stock. Still recommend forging, if you cant afford a rebuild i say don't risk it until you have the $ the forge if its your daily driver.

Would that turbo with forged internals be practical for a daily driver? Or S/C is better?

Any setup with a safe/good tune is fine for a dd.
S/c is more common because it's cheaper but if i had the $ for the turbo setup and supporting mods id definitely do it. Not very many turbo stangs that aren't the older models.

Also tc>sc. Thats why its more pricey.

I'd rather have the turbo for a dd. depending on the weight of your foot you would see a little better mpg with the turbo

The hellion kit is good. Just the turbo brand they got isnt the best. Id sell the actual turbonetics it came with and get a better quality one and you'll have a bada** set up

As long as you keep the torque numbers around 440 or lower, you'll see a long life out of the engine in most scenarios. Less power would be even better.

Also, pricing on a good SC vs TB is very similar. People get away with higher numbers on a stock engine when turboed because if you stay out of boost, the power isn't there in theory. So, the engine is relatively preserved.
