Should I buy this supercharged 2005?

Hey all, thanks so much for letting me join the forum!

I test drove a supercharged Mustang today that had 427 HP and 391 TQ at the wheels, with a lazy tune. I can't imagine how much *** it would kick with an aggressive tune.
I fell in love with the car. It was an amazing drive. There's only one thing that I'm worried about; it has NO engine reinforcements. I have no idea how these 4.6s hold up to the extra power.

It has almost 100,000 miles, and it has been built since 30,000. It hasn't had any problems, but I'm not sure that it will last forever.
Is it okay with how much power it has?
Will I be able to boost it up with a smaller pulley and a more aggressive tune without it blowing up?

Here is a link to the Classified Ford Mustang | ksl.com

He is asking $15,000, is that fair?
Thanks so much in advance

That's quite a bit of miles there and I'm thinking if you boost up or add more HP you'll blow the motor I think the stock 4.6 can only hold up 450hp I remember asking the same but I don't know man do you have $ to waste on a car? Are you looking to buy one?

Spend the extra 5-7 grand and get a 2011 5.0.

Yeah I agree that's a lot of miles and the 4.6 can only take so much your gonna end up spending more in the motor that you think as to where the 5.0 makes 412hp or 420hp with a couple of bolt ons you can get at around 400 to the wheel its also a newer car better suspension body stuff like thaf

Hmm, a maintained 2005 GT Premium with 100K = $11K-$13K tops. Okay it has a supercharger, but any other mods? If he didn't do anything to the suspension might as well cancel that supercharger out (I have that motor with just a custom tune - that's it - and I'm already dying to tackle the suspension before any more hp mods).

Alright guys, I've been referred to this car
Cars for Sale: 2007 Ford Mustang GT Premium in Draper, UT 84020: Coupe Details - 365462352 - AutoTrader.com

I have talked to the owner, and it has 20,000 miles on the build, but has stock internals too. On a dyno, it hit 471.09 HP and 409.98 TQ.
He said that the dyno was 'adjusted' to sea level, meaning it makes far less power up here at 4300+ feet (Utah) and guessed that it had somewhere in the lower 400's in horses.

With the lower miles on the car and only 20,000 on the build, would it be wise to buy?
Would it be a good idea to throw some forged pistons and/or rods?

He says that the car has never had a problem with the performance bolt-ons.

Thanks for the continued feedback

Just be careful buying used like that. You know...People put superchargers on their cars because they want to go fast/race/beat on the car. Need for speed....

Sometimes those cars are driven really hard. I bought an old lt11 trans am from a guy who used to race it at the track. It lasted about 100k before everything started to go.....
