Figure $4-$5k if you are DIY once all is said and done. Probably tack on $1k for an install. Vortech S trim or Kenne Bell 2.1 are usually the two most common options.

You also should have the car's unibody stiffened with subframes and the suspension/wheels/tires and all the other "bolt ons" done before a supercharger.

I got my 2.1 kenne bell couple months ago and I installed it by myself. It was pretty easy to install and now I could take out the supercharge in 2 hrs and put it back in 2 hrs. Main thing was getting the right dyno tune. I went to the rpm speed center in Stockton, CA and it was worst mistake i made because they burned my computer and did the tune and didn't tell me that my boost a pump wasn't working. I drove around the whole time with less fuel. Thank god I didn't ruin my engine, I got lucky. Finally I went to AED dyno shop because I knew something wasn't right. They did the tune correctly so my mustang went from 351hp to 401hp. And I love it and nothing is wrong with it anymore

All this talk about super chargers is making me itchy to get one. I've looked at a lot of threads on here and other forums about the tork tech kit one recently.

Problem is, for the price of a supercharger and then modding the car to take the power and then the value of the car itself. Often when you add all that up its more economical to sell what you have and buy a Termi or a Coyote or a GTO and definitely a nice F body. Getting into a "built" modular you are almost always going to go over the cost of a car that is already fast as is which is fine for someone who doesn't want a car payment and to do it piecemeal. This hobby is not exactly one that is fiscally responsible lol.

Know a guy with a kenne bell 2v. Lost to my buddy's 06 gto with exhaust and tune. They ran 3 times and the mustang lost 3 times. Then on the final run the 2v motor went boom lol

Yeah a bolt on GTO with a tune is what like 400 something to the wheels? From what I've read the LS2 cam actually leaves a lot on the table as well but I'll defer to ppl who actually do the LSx thing on that.

This is not to say a Modular can't be built to be insane. There are plenty of them, but it isn't cheap.

He was pissed none the less. If you plan on doing it plan on a built motor. Unless your happy with 330-350 at the tires

I just put 2.1 cuz I love my mustang it's not the fastest car out there but hey it's better then noting. If ur planning on racing then it's better to build a engine and then get supercharger or turbo. My car makes 401hp in the wheels which is good for 2v and m planning on building another engine for racing only so it all depend on you what u want to do with the car. For me I love it cuz it still faster then some cars on the street it doesn't bother me if I lose or win it's just for fun

Building a mod motor is expensive. Trust me. If you plan on supercharging a stock GT then look ahead and at least have basic suspension upgrades and get ready to work on your fuel system.. Unless you're keeping a stock lower end and only want like 340-400rwhp. Even if that's the case the 42lb injectors everyone loves with supercharger kits are pretty much maxed out at around 380rwhp and anything more is over their duty cycle.

If I could say one thing... Overbuild the rest of your car before you put power in the motor. And also think about swapping to a 26 spline input shaft and 26 spline clutch while you're at it... Those 10 splines are notorious for blowing apart.

If you are going to injector the car for a blower get #60s. Most ppl stop at 400whp with the stock motor. And then promptly lose to a cam only bolt on F body. I mean, with the right setup 400whp is not slow by any means but you will not be dominating anything either.

He has a point( overbuild the rest of the car before you put power in the motor) thats where I made a mistake thinking I need the power in a motor but now I can't keep the car to the ground but m changing that by getting new lower/ upper control arms, shocks, subframe, etc... But the point is build the rest of the car first and u won't regret later on

I swear sometimes I'm on a ls1 forum and not a mustang forum. There's so much **** talk on mustangs and praise for ls1/2's that I get confused thinking I signed up for the wrong forum.

I don't get why people don't just buy a damn ls1 and go to a ls1 forum to put their own balls on a pedestal. Jesus

You can't really talk about making a mod motor fast without talking about how an LS can be as fast for cheaper.

It's just how it is. Obviously I have mad love for mod motors because look at my build thread so far. Haha. But I also have mad respect for the LS motors.

I understand that. But I've seen more **** talk on mustangs, on a mustang forum, then I have anywhere else lol. An I've never seen more praise for the ls1/2... We all get they are good motors. I think if you've been on the forums 5 minutes you will see a post that has praise for the ls1. We get it. This is suppose to be a place for praise and tech help for mustangs.. Not to kiss ls1/2's ***.

Turn the main down a tad skidrow. The LS1 is a great basis for comparison and a good enough reason to give someone to think twice about building up a modular and run some numbers on how much it is actually going to cost vs considering another platform or a Terminator or a Coyote.

I am typically pretty calm, but it eventually gets annoying. I mean, we all own mustangs for a reason, right? If the fbody is god, then why doesn't everyone on here have one? Lol it's not like they are expensive. I get they can stomp a mustang racing. It seems to be said in every other thread. I just wish people would quit dogging our cars, and enjoy being with fellow mustang lovers. If people wanna bash them then those people should go to a ls1 forum. They will be happier because they'll be surrounded by people like themselves.
