GT500 axle backs

What's up guys? I was reading on one of the forums (can't remember which) that the GT500 stock axle backs will fit on the V6 if installed by a muffler shop (or someone who can weld and such). I remember the guy who made the post saying they sounded awesome. Am I crazy or does anyone else remember seeing this somewhere? What are yalls thoughts on doing this? I think it would sound pretty damn good. Thoughts?

I know someone by me with the GT500's. I haven't heard it in person yet so I can't say if it's good or not.

He got them because he didn't want something too loud so he could hear his procharger. Upgraded from Roush I believe? I think he's got vids of the setup on youtube. Will have to check. I gotta get out to one of the meets sometime to hear it.

Here's a link to one of his vids. You can check out the rest. Has vids of a few other setups he had as well. Sounds good from the vid though

Wait wait wait....ok so he has a pro charger and exhaust, with 3.55 gears. Do you know if he kept the stock rear axle and stock wheel size? I saw he got it on a dyno of course, and pumped out 409rwhp...not bad. Just can't tell from the vids what all he did to it.

Stock rear axle. Remember we have the 8.8 now. Wheels are GT500 replicas I think. Not sure of his tire sizes though.

Ah that's right! I forget the new models come with the 8.8 now. I was about to say...haha! Ok so not the same size as the stock pony wheels at least, I'd guess a thinner tire and possibly lowered. I think I like the sound of his pro charger better than the exhaust...if its got 8psi I'm guessing it's a stage 2, and I would like to ask if he wouldn't mind adopting me....lol

That's why he went to the GT500's so he could hear the procharger. The O/R X w/ Roush was too loud. I plan on procharging mine after my deployment. Just waiting for the phone call..

Ok so question...I don't know a lot about the output of a procharger, so which has potential to give more hp, supercharger or procharger?

And yeah, gotta love the post-deployment play $ huh? Hahaha

Tough to say. A procharger is a supercharger though. It's a centri. From what I've heard centri types have the potential for most power but I've never had experience with a roots or twin screw so I can't confirm that. Maybe someone knows better? Centri's are in a way kinda like belt driven turbo. They don't run as hot as other blowers though. They like turbos take time to build boost and it's not as instant as say a roots or twin screw. But from what I hear have potential for more power. These prochargers are the only supercharger option for our 3.7's right now and cars with them have gone well over 500whp.

Hmmm...that gives me something to think about. The procharger is a little cheaper than the supercharger I've had my eye on. My boyfriend is a mechanic on the side and may know more about it, or his brother who is a Mustang enthusiast like me might know. Definitely throws another option. I've been trying to decide if I want to go turbo or supercharged, and there's pros and cons for both. I just like s/c better because it's just set it and forget it. But then turbo you can play with the flow and go high or low which is nice, but then I worry I'll break something lol. I dunno....decisions decisions. Looks like you 3.7's have it made for you right now if you don't want to wait

I'll cheers to that! I've had my car since 2009 and still love it just as much as the day I bought it, if not more. I love to drive it, and I love working on it. Makes it so much better when you enjoy something you put your hard earned $ into.

You really can't go wrong with either. A member JimC on here had his 4.0 vert in the 12's with his X-charger. Turbo's will give you the most power but you just need to ask yourself, "how much power do I need?" Just make sure you put that power down correctly to satisfy your needs and goals.

Re: GT500 axle backs

Don't go supercharger over procharger unless it's a whipple. Whipples are very efficient designs and can put out a lot of power.... they also make this hellistic whine that will get everyone's attention when you step on it. Case in point, M90 (roots) GTP compared to a whipple GTP. I still love the sound of a turbo spooling...

M90: gtp whine - YouTube
Whipple: Whipple Grand Rpix - YouTube
Turbo: V6 Grand Prix 3800 Turbo - YouTube

I keep forgetting about Whipples for some reason lol! I have a friend who put one in his Lightning and it's sikk. I guess my goal is to get enough power to keep up with the big boys on the street really....and have more to stand out at shows. I just want to win one trophy, ya know? I've gotten one, but it was an honorable mention. They gave out a ton of them :/

Has anyone managed to fit a whipple to a 3.7? That would be fairly sick.

Re: GT500 axle backs

I've seen a prototype pic of one on the 3.7, being used in some custom car project for a company. However, they said it could be fitted to the Mustang and it might clear the hood (it's a tall setup with an intercooler).

Hmmmm that sounds interesting. A whippled 3.7 would be pretty sick.

We need less one off custom pieces and more production parts. I've got a feeling that the 3.7 is going to be the most popular V6 Mustang ever built. It offers real power with a decent amount of economy (price and fuel). It really fits the old school traditional model of a muscle car. Affordable and fast. I really hope the aftermarket for this car takes off.
