Boosting

Ok, so I'm deeply considering getting the whipple kit for my 08 GT. I have no clue how safe this is going to be on my stock engine. I have a aftermarket exhaust (headers & back), under drive pullies, a 4.10 rear end, hurst short shifter, and other cosmetics. If I were to just slap on everything that came with the kit, would it be safe for a daily driver? If so, how safe? And if not, what all would I need to build up before I supercharge my 4.6L?

I'm also considering the Roush R2300. Opinions on whipple vs the 2300?

Welcome to MEVO. I'm assuming the kit has everything necessary for the S/C upgrade, so you should be fine with the kit. However, you'll have to run really low boost. The stock 3v 4.6 apparently can only handle up to 450 hp. At that point, you'd have to build your motor with stronger internals.

If you leave your motor stock, it'd probably be a better choice to get the Roush R2300 and just run low boost. The Whipple seems to be a much better blower, but you wouldn't be able to utilize it very well on a stock motor.

I did brenspeeds r520 kit about a month ago and my internals are stock and it seems good so far! It's the r2300 and I think it's 6-8 lbs boost? I was torn between the whipple as well but when I went to buy the 550 kit from American muscle in the black not chrome they didn't have it anymore so I went with brenspeed....couldn't be happier! (Unless I had a built motor!)

In terms of getting stronger internals, what does that include?

I believe you'll also have to put your under drive pullies back to stock before a SC install...

Forged crank, connecting rods, pistons, etc. basically the rotating assembly is beefed up to handle higher rpms and more torque.
