Turbo VS. Supercharger

I know turbos are cheaper but I'm wondering which one will bring the most power increase, I never thought you would put a turbo on a mustang since its a muscle car but I'm considering it. Anyone know the specs about both?

Anyways...both options will put you over 300hp and will require a new 8.8" rear axle and forged lower compression pistons along with some higher strength head studs and some better connecting rods never hurts either. If you're a manual then you'll need a higher strength clutch as well

Any idea how much that would run me in the end?

An x-charger intercooled xtreme supercharger is $6400 and the pistons and rods and head studs can be found on supersixmotorsports.com...around $8k probably

Re: Turbo VS. Supercharger

There isn't any need to build the engine - no need for the forged pistons and rods. The 4.0 is already strong. I put 203,000 miles on my car with the Xcharger, and a friend put over 150,000 on his.

Telling people that they "NEED" to build the engine like that is just wrong and not supported by what those of us who have done it have experienced.

There are lots of boosted 4.0's, turbo, procharger, vortech, and Xcharger running with no problems and not built engines.

And to the OP, the turbo isn't a cheaper option. Any forced induction will run you several thousand dollars. The turbo will produce more horsepower, a centri supercharger will be next in horsepower, and the Xcharger produces the least. But the advantage to the Xcharger is the low end torque.

Re: Turbo VS. Supercharger

You dont NEED to replace the engine internals but i highly recommend you replace the driveshaft...especially if you plan on raising the speed governor.
