Need help on Best supercharger selection

Hello ladies and gents. I know this topic has been discussed many of time; prob even to death hahaha. I own a 2005 GT with a little over 86,000 miles on it. I keep up the manitenance and repairs when need (as any mustang fan should). I'm finally taking it to performance shop this weekend to discuss performance upgrades. My main point of interest aside from handling and speed, is power. I've done my research on superchargers; Vortech, Roush, Whipple, Paxton, Procharger, etc. My first choice was the Roush TVS2300 supercharger Dual Belt Phase 2;then looked at the ProCharger System. But then moved onto Magnuson TVS 1900 Mustang Supercharger. I'm sure the shop will suggest one that will go well with my ride, but thought I'd get more insight or alternat choices from you guys. Your help and info would be greatly appreciated.

I have the roush tvs 2300. It's a real nice unit and lots of fun. Upgradable well past what the stock engine internals can handle. Centri blowers as I'm sure you know will have a much smoother power band. You really can't go wrong with any that you have mentioned.

I love the look of the magnuson. Plus, I don't see as many of them around so you would have somewhat of a uniqueness.

Only thing I would say about the tvs 1900 is that being smaller than the 2300 it's gonna make more heat I would think to make the same boost. I'm just assuming though, not for sure.

Thank you guys for your input. Kenne Bell was another one i was looking at;775RWHP MAMMOTH KIT. In regards to the Magnuson, they are rare to see; hence why I kept it at the top of my list. I would like a good amount of horsepower though; a little over 500 would be awesome if possible taking the miles my car has on it already. 600-700 hp is even better but too much (can't believe I just said that hahaha) esp when driving on jersey roads...not ideal.

There is a reason the Magnuson is not seen regularly

Personally i'd pick a Turbo over a centri supercharger, they build boost quicker (if you pick the right type) and put out more torque. If its instant power you want then a positive displacement blower is what you want. In that case the VMP TVS is pretty good.

Saw my first one of those this past weekend. Strange looking and know nothing about it other than Brenspeed seems to be exclusive with them. It was on an '05 vert.

If you want to go over 500RWHP you're gonna be rebuilding your engine sooner or later in all likelihood

Well I'm sure upgrading many components in the engine aside from the supercharger, will be one of the things the performance shop will suggest; and I'll intend to agree with.

You will need a new forged rotating assembly if you plan on going over 500rwhp. Budget another 5k for it to be done right

I might go with the Roush Supercharger Dual Belt Phase 2. It's a bad *** supercharger and have heard good reviews on it. But this also depends on what my guy at the shop says; esp with the mileage and wear & tear it has thus far.

I have the single belt stage 1. What are the advantages of the dual belt going to be? I know you can get a smaller pulley for the single belt from brenspeed. It takes the crank horsepower to 560.

A few things I can tell you about having the roush tvs. Once installed you will have to remove your pcm from the car and send it to roush for calibration.(there is an additional 100 dollar fee) when you get the calibration from roush you are going to be running pig rich. You will also be leaving lots of horsepower on the table due to the rich condition.

I chose to forego the roush tune. Instead I had it dyno tuned so that the car would actually be running good rather than rich or lean from basically a mail order tune. Of course you need a sct tuner or Diablo to have it tuned. You can usually get one used.
The stage 1 kit made 452rwhp STD a corrected and 416TQ.

I have been contemplating the brenspeed 560 pulley. Of course I need to upgrade to the gt500 fuel pumps. After talking with brenspeed they feel that their 3.5 pulley is as small of a pulley they feel comfortable putting on a car. The stage 2 kit from roush comes with the gt500 fuel pumps.

450-500rwhp with a good tune is the absolute max you can make with stock internals.
The rods are the weakest link in the engine.
You can run more than that at your own risk basically.

Make sure your shop is familiar with the 3v. I have seen a lot of stories where guys take their car to a shop to have work done, then they lose the engine because of a bad tune.
Also don't be surprised if your shop suggests whatever blower is easiest to install. Lol
You may find the below link useful. Hope this gives you some insight.

I'd give a link, but I'm at work. You'll need to come up with a intake manifold because this sc isn't made for our motors directly, despite the potential with upgrade technology. The kenne bell 4.2lc is a monster of a twin screw well worth some investigation if you have the money to make it work.

Well guys, I want to thank you for your all your help and suggestion on my supercharger topic. Met with my guys at the shop; and after going over all the many options, here is the one I've decided to with. VMP TVS 2.3 Supercharger Upgrade Kit 6 (rib). Now if anyone knows of a place to that can match the color of the supercharger to that of my car, That'd be awesome. It's not a real need...but it'd look bad *** awesome.
