Supercharger on a 2010 V6?

Hi, I know superchargers have been discussed a few times, but I'll try it once more, from my angle.

I have a 2010 V6 that has been my daily driver. I'm buying another car soon, and it's going to be something more practical, so my options are basically selling the Mustang, or keeping it and making it more fun. I was thinking of going with the latter one.

The biggest question I have is, does it make sense to put a supercharger on that thing, or stick with the bolt-ons? The car has almost 100k miles on it, and it hasn't been modded yet. I don't want to blow it up, but some additional power would be nice. I also want to keep it street legal. I can spend the money, but only if it makes sense.

I think some one put on a m90 but had to do some custom fab to make it work.

Or you could do x-charger or pro-charger gain 100-150hp.

Best thing to do personally sell get Coyote

AM has 4 kits available for 2010 V6. I didn't research them yet, though. http://www.americanmuscle.com/mustan...rger-2011.html

I know getting a better platform would be ideal, but unfortunately that's out of my options. For me it's either modding my V6, or selling the car and using that money to get a better DD.

Ive considered a supercharger for mine as well. You can get a kit for around 2 grand. If you really wanted a fun fast car then id sell it and try and get a coyote or go for an older gt

It's all in what you want but honestly I would either sell it and get a nicer dd or get a dd sell the mustang and get a better platform to start with. Your going to spend a lot of money just getting in that 300-350 Hp range.

If it were me I would just have a nice dd and do a few simple mods to that and then you can enjoy it everyday. But it's really all in what you want!

I put the Xcharger Xtreme on my 2006 at 90,000miles; after 2 years on a 75 shot of nitrous. It was still running mid 12's when I sold it in June 2012 and ordered the 2013. It had 203,000 on it then. The new owner still drives and tracks it and last I heard he had 212,000 on it.

No engine work, stock top and bottom end

Yep. I'm trying to decide whether the money spent on the V6 would be better spent on a better dd. Or, the supercharged V6 would probably be more expensive, but more fun, as well.

If I go for the supercharger, I'm also upgrading the suspension and exhaust, and getting bigger wheels (plus some appearance mods, maybe). But that would be pretty much it, to start with. Then I would upgrade parts when they wear out, or start to annoy me. I'm not trying to make it the fastest or best V6 ever. Instead, I'm trying to see how to make it as fun as possible, without throwing too much money into it.

Thanks. I've been looking at what options I would have for a supercharger. I don't see any reason not go for an intercooled one, and the more I look into the options Xcharger Xtreme seems to be the one to get.

Considering that my car is still stock, what else would you change, other than suspension, if I get the supercharger? It's manual, if that matters.

Swap to the 8.8" rear end. You need it with the extra power and low end torque of the Xcharger. For gears don't go anything more than 3.55's or traction becomes a problem with the Xcharger. I loved my Xcharger, and nothing beats that "X-scream" at wide open throttle. It won't give you the biggest dyno sheet, but will get out much quicker with the instant torque than a centri blower or turbo (although both will run you down on the top end of the 1/4 mile - a good light will get you to the stripe first though).

The Shaftmasters 4" aluminum driveshaft was a great addition - took almost .2 off my time at the track with that.

There a difference between 4' and 3.5' for the DS ?

I've got the one from AM the 4'

At Shaftmasters the 3.5 was designed for cars that were lowered, the 4" could hit spots on a lowered car. The cure was a little massaging with a BFH on the transmission tunnel otherwise

Oh, what kind of an exhaust were you running with it? I've been thinking about GT takeouts with an H-pipe. I want the sound to be deeper, and not too loud. I'm just wondering if you happened to have something like that.

My favorite set up on my Xcharger car was a Ford Racing X pipe and the GTB mufflers. Some say the X is raspy but I never noticed it. When I get home I will post a link to some video

I've got the exact setup now but catless and with shorties...I really like the sound as well.

Thanks! That would help. I was thinking an H-pipe, because I've heard the raspy comment, as well, and I'm looking for something smoother.

Here are some videos - action shots is all I can find right now. Somehow I have 2 different log ins on youtube so have to figure out how to get to the other one where I must have the video in the driveway of the sound.

Thanks! It would be awesome if you found the vid with idling. Now the engine (and the wind) is covering much of the engine noise.

I'll keep looking, I know I have video of the set up and some better action shots too. At least you can hear the "X-scream"! All of my friends said that they never had to even look up, they always knew when I was making a pass just from the scream of the Xcharger.

That guy with the V12 BMW was surprised at our run.
