upgrades while waiting for supercharger

i want to supercharge my mustang but just dont have the money right now. I want to get the vortech kit, where they program your chip for you, but probably wont be able to get it until next year. However, I want to make some mods now to increase HP but dont want to get/do anything that will have to be taken off when the supercharger is installed or that will conflict with the supercharger system.

I would like some cold air but am not sure if it can stay when the supercharger is installed and also am not familiar with how they work as far as the OEM filter and if that filter and box are not used with the cold air system, do you remove them or do they just sit under the hood, not being used?

The other thing I was looking at was underdrive pulleys. They seem like a good deal (better gas milage, more HP), unless there is something Im missing.

I dont know what else I could/should get or in what order (for example, if you get this, then you should also get this...)

I didnt really know if this was a repost, I did some searching but didnt find alot and wasnt sure what key words to put in the search.

You wont nee the CAI when you get the vortech kit it will have its own, also you wont want underdrive pulleys as they will slow the supercharger pulley down. Try a full exhaust which will help when you get the charger and a maybe a custom tune

Re: upgrades while waiting for supercharger

never ever never just let the company that sells you the vortech burn you an off the shelf tune. Get a custom tune (you can get good custom tunes in the mail from GOOD places but its always best to have a dyno)

when you start modding a car you start spending more and more money on it. After you put the SC on the car you need to be prepared for more expenses so if you cant afford it then it might be best to wait a bit longer. I would hate to see your engine blow up and its your DD and then you are screwed.
