Suspension. Even a bolt on gt can run good at the track if you got good tires and suspension

Damn near full bolt ons for a gt before you break it down. So I would do some weight reduction, suspension, and tranny

Saleenfan04,

It sounds like you have a nice build going! We would love to see a few pictures!

If you're serious about getting a supercharger, I would definitely recommend going with a set of long tube headers. They will really help your engine breathe and give you awesome numbers on the dyno combined with that supercharger.

I also like what a couple other people were thinking along the Suspension lines. With all that extra power you will definitely need a way to control your Mustang. Options like springs, control arms, shocks and struts are always a good choice.

Sounds like you have the right idea though. If you need any help or have any questions feel free to let me know!

-Dan

I'd go gears with lower control arms and good wheels and tires

The power of the supercharger will not be anywhere close to what it should be with the stock suspension setup. Gears (unless you are getting a KB, leave the 3.27s in for that) and then subframes should be your next mod, then a good set of LCAs, lowering springs/shocks/struts and a nice set of wheels/tires. Then fuel system, then worry about the supercharger. Also get a short shifter...

Longtubes will not really be necessary with a supercharger as well espeically a KB. Stock manifolds on the 4.6L are not restrictive like they are on the pushrods. Not saying there won't be gains but with the supercharger and a stock motor you really don't need them.

Also your Bama tuner is no good for a blower, you'll need a custom dyno tune for that. And your intake spacer will probably have to go... and your steeda pulleys will need to be swapped back for the stockers when you put the blower on... and if you got the one piece BBK TB/Plenum that will have to go too if you go with the KB.

That's why it's good good to have an overall plan BEFORE you start modding instead of just throwing parts at it

Auto is faster at the 1/4 with a j mod or shift kit and a good aftermarket stall converter. The BBK TB will work if its just the TB but if its the whole plenum/tb combo no it won't.

And what do you mean "BBK lower kit"? Lower what? Control arms?

Wow get rid of the glow lights, those don't even work for rolling through the high school parking lot at 2:30 trying to pick up girls... er... so I hear... Also the extra foglights in the grille... why? You have great foglights already.

Anyway, the rest of the car looks good. If the 04 in your username is because your car is an 04 you lucked out because the 04 cars were the only year to get the 4r75w automatic transmission which is an upgraded version of the automatics they used in previous years.

I agree ^ but it's your car do what you like. The extra fogs if they are useful and bright then I can dig, but if not then it's rice imo.

He's auto as was already stated. Aluminum driveshaft would be the very last mod I would do unless the stock steel one is messed up for some reason.

Yeah I was thinking about aluminum driveshaft but I can't find one for automatic but I probably change shocks and struts any good brand I should go with? Not so expensive cuz m saving for supercharged, I want to change rear gears to 3:73 but KB told me stay with stock lol and I had another question. If I get line lock, would that be good for take off faster?

You use a line lock to heat up your tires and not tear up your rear brakes in the process. You can't find an aluminum DS for auto because they don't make one. You have to buy the manual DS and then swap an auto yoke onto it. Nothing you can't do in a few minutes with basic tools. And who is KB?

As far as "not expensive"... You have fast, reliable and cheap and you only get to pick two of those. You are looking at $4k to properly do a supercharger and that's if you install it all yourself and do a basic Vortech S trim. Tack $1k-$2k on if you have a shop do it. For a decent set of shocks/struts/springs that won't break the bank you could do a simple drop spring like Ford Racing C spring and then some Tokicos with Max Motorsports CC plates, alignment and bump steer kit if you got 1.5" drop or lower.

You also will want to get a good stall converter in front of that trans and j-mod it or do a shift kit to it with a good tune to firm up the shift points. And I mentioned subframes before but those are mandatory. I recommend the Steeda subframes since they come with torque box reinforcement plates that others do not have.

And this is why I didn't want a auto vert. 4.10's would liven it up but you said you can't change the gears so... Meh

Oh and my input... Get those ricey lights off, the fog light things, and the under glow. You don't drive a honda civic. You will thank us later.

All a line lock does is lock your front brakes so that you can do a burnout. If you try to launch with the line lock set you're gonna fail miserably. YouTube what a J-mod is, you're gonna have to do it yourself because it's not just something you can buy.
