give me some figures

So help me out. I have big plans for the stang this summer. I just need to hear what kind of money ill be needing here. I want to finally supercharge her. A vortech. And I want cams. How much would it cost me to get a vortech and cams installed and tuned do you think? I need a number to work toward.

Around 5k in parts. Install depends on you, and expect to tie up some spend on your tune.

How hard is a vortech install. I don't think I could install cams myself.

bluegrassfever6,

The Vortech installation is definitely rated at an expert level, but it's a good first big project IMO. That is assuming you've tackled a few projects in the past. The V3 Vortech is especially better to start with because it's self lubricated (no need to tap oil pan) and the 2v GT's don't come with an intercooler that you have to install. So, you're basically adding a major bolt-on mod haha. Also, I would have a shop do the fuel pump if you're not comfortable about dropping the gas tank.

Good luck!

Shane

To expand on Shane's great advice, Vortech includes a voucher to send your ECU in for a base tune to be installed. This removes another issue with installing any FI setup at home: where to tune and how to get there. A dyno tune will still net you the most power, but having a tune that will get you around until then is a serious bonus.

Only your shop can tell you labor cost since there is no book time on something like that.

I think you are looking at 6k no matter how you slice it.

Vortech installs are very easy. Hardest part is oil pan tapping. If you use a v3 you dont even need to worry about that. The bracket is seriously fice bolts to the front of the timing cover. If you get the basic kit you do t need to run piping or anything.

If you want a front mount intercooler setup then the install is slightly more time consuming because all of the piping. Cxracing make a basicaly bolt in piping and intercooler kit for vortech kits though.

Just make sure the keep it under the 450rwhp mark. If you dont, you will put multiple holes in your block. Fun experience.

So this is what I've come up with. I'm just gonna do cams this year. Save up money for the charger for next year. How much would it be for the cams, the install, and the tune?
