V2 Vortech Supercharger

The vortech supercharger that's rated at 290hp and 294ft/lb, is it necessary to replace my rear end too or is the 7.5 sufficient?

Cause I've heard the rear is fine it's just the driveshaft fails and a new set of 3.73s would help as well

Go with 4.10s with tlok and that supercharger on your 7.5 and tape it, I've always wanted to see the axel blow!

I have shattered a built 8.8 at the same power level launching on a prepped track with drag radials.

What's everyone's opinion on this supercharger? I have thought about getting this one but it seems like its expensive for the moderate gain in horsepower.

the 7.5 can hold the power its the "shock" that breaks them aka launching hard from a stop etc.

It may hold for a while it just depends on how its driven, the spider gears are the weak link in the 7.5" rear. Just be on the lookout for an 8.8 and dont beat on it to terrible from a stop etc.

Your beat bet is to find an 8.8 and piece it together with quality stuff. Get a F150 differential with 2 extra clutches added for increased locking, moser 31 spline axles with 3.5" wheel studs and c-clip eliminator if you so desire.

Idk I could spend about $2000-$2500 and get about 275-280hp and not need the rear end too though...just do natural stuff

My first mustang was an 83 GT. That car made a whopping 175HP and 250ft/lb of TQ. I broke the 7.5 launching on the street with crappy and bald 225/60R15 BFG Comp T/As. Those tires sucked and got zero traction. The spider gears exploded. Just remember it don't take much to destroy a 7.5 rearend.

Re: V2 Vortech Supercharger

In addition to being a weak link, the 7.5 is an open differential. So with the new found power and torque you will have a big one tire fire and not be able to put the power to the ground.

Don't waste the time and money on trying to build the 7.5 with a tlok and gears. I tried it, broke it with just a CAI, tune, and drag radials. Then it ended up costing LESS to replace it with an 8.8.
