My question is this, I want to do a supercharger, I was thinking the Roush M90, but I'm fairly green when it comes to aftermarket parts. Do I need to do anything else to it when installing this or is it bolt-and-go? Thanks

M90 Is outdated and small. You will be maxed out at 420rwhp with it. You need at least a 2.3 I have the roush tvs and I'm pleased. Bear in mind that once you get to 450 RWHP you really need to forge the rods and pistons and probably the crank while your in there. The tvs can get you closer to 600rwhp maybe more depending on your supporting mods. Basically without spending 12k your gonna be stuck around the 450 mark. Won't take his 5.0 much except some headers cold air intake and tune to hang with a blown 3v if you have stock internals.

I would be happy with what you have. Looks like a real nice ride. Anything you do to the car do it cuz you like it or want it. Not to try and keep up with your buddy. Plain and simple truth is the coyote eats the 3v for lunch. Wish it wasn't so cuz I have a 3v myself but it is.

As far as bolt and go, well kind of. Intake manifold has to come off, alternator relocated, swap fuel injectors, add the bigger radiator, spark plug swap, do the wiring and send your PCM to roush If you go with the m90

I have an M90 in my Roush and love it. If I were you though I would go the TVS route as the M90 is as has been said, outdated and old.
Either way, you won't be disappointed. Unless that is, you have to have more than 550 crank HP. Just remember, horsepower isnt cheap. Good luck!

Yep not bashing the m90, sound wise it can't be beat, (my opinion) you just won't have the ability to upgrade past 420-440RWHP in the future without a whole new unit.

I have a 2010 as well, I have dumped some serious money into my car and have heard about other builds people have done. I went with the Saleen supercharger...sounds great and really performs well. If you want to have a good time, do your rear end first, I suggest doing your axles, upgraded differential and 4.10 gears! I would also say with any money left over get a good cold air intake like JLT or something with a SCT programmer. If you want some quick mods to have fun with I would say long tube headers and x pipe and pype bomb axle backs. If you are still looking for a little more power I would say nitrous kit like a 75-100 would help you hang with your boy and with all those mods it should come out to about 3,500 to 4k...sounds like alot and you might think going to a supercharger would work and maybe it would but just remember with the stock internals you are limited to 450 and your not going to want to destroy that....I learned that the hard way! which is why I have forged internals now LOL Anything else you wanna know just ask away, I've done just about everything to my car just waiting for more money for bigger and better things
