Supercharger?

I have a 1969 mustang with a 302 and an auto, its not quite as fast as I wish it was. All stock. I've been thinking about supercharging it... Any thoughts??

Depends on internals, it can cause a lot of stress on an unprepared motor. But if you stay in a moderate lbs area you should be good. What style supercharger? Roots or a Paxton? Im debating on doing a mod swap and blowing it

^++ about 8lbs on cast/stock internals is fine if tuned correctly.. Add a girdle and tray and it will be solid! If you have forged internals or plan on them adding a tray and girdle will allow you to get some serious psi/hp..

Curious to see what style blower you want and if you are going carbed or EFI

I'm thinking about Paxton, and def carbed. I can't decide if I should get a rebuild and call it good, or also get a good internal setup for a supercharger

If you want to eventually build big boost/high HP id spend the extra cash on good internals. IMO even if you had to push back buying the SC.

Thanks, if anyone else has any comments on performace upgrades I'd love to hear em. I'm up for hearing new things, 16 years old so I have a thirst for that kind of knowledge

My mustang is my daily driver, so if I had all better internals and was ready for the supercharger, would I still be able to drive with out it installed and when I was ready to buy one, install it

One of the things you do when you upgrade internals, though, is lower the compression to help the engine tolerate the boost. You can definitely still drive it after the internal upgrade, but if you've done it right, your power will be down due to the lower compression. Upgrading the internals will be the time consumer, so I would suggest waiting until you can do it all at once to go into the engine. There are plenty of details on the web to help with that decision.
