supercharger?

is it worth supercharging a v6 instead of trading it in for 5.0. the only reason why I am considering is because of mpg and insurance rates. what do y'all think? a supercharged v6 would smoke a 5.0 also I believe

Personally i would trade it in.. a supercharfer simply wont make the power to smoke a modded 5.0 if youre looking for big power for your v6 look into the turbo kit from hellion. I believe they have twins for the v6. Thats just my personal opinion. I know a guy who got a turbo kit and made low 500's with 18psi... thats pretty damn good for a v6

I wanna keep my good mpg and low insurance rates tho. supercharger plus install plus prep would be around $10k right? if I bought my 2013 premium for 25k olus the supercharger that would be as much as a new premium gt but a little faster?

Porcharger 5500
Gears plus install kit 250
Driveshaft 600
Tires and rims 2k
Install 2k

Output 450-460HP

Faster than his 5.0 and pulls faster and harder due to the gears.

Tires and rims can be cut. And gears. Turbo is better in the long run, and will not affect your mpg, while a super charger will hurt mpg. But, turbo will cost more to instal. I would suggest turbo first, but super is not bad.

It depends on the driver. They both have advantages and disadvantages

Depends if ur car exhaust is stock im talking about the headers ? If its stock go with Turbo. Yes it costs more but u will see greater gains from it. If u want exhaust then go with Procharger since u can buy headers n xpipe from BBK, Borla, or Even Bassani

For those who think that their insurance won't go up, guess again. First your insurance company will ask about any ad-ons. IF YOU WANT TO PLAY STUPID, FINE, DON'T TELL THEM. THEY HAVE BEEN AT BUSINESS A LONG TIME. FAILURE OR STUPIDITY TO HIDE THIS FROM THE INSURANCE COMPANY, IT WON'T BE COVERED IF YOUR IN AN ACCIDENT.

I added the FRHP package to my car, after I drove it off the lot. Even though I could have ordered it on a car, I still got charged a couple of bucks more, because the car was lowered 1" inch. I also got quized about all the options on the car.

If you expect mods to be covered, yes. Insurance company will only cover oem parts otherwise.

Basically you get a rider to cover $x amount of aftermarket parts and pay a higher premium.

^Don't know if that is a better idea. You'll have to have a good tune. You'll have more maintenance costs involved with the FI compared to a 5.0. Plus, it won't say 5.0 on the side. It would be ridiculous to put all that money in it as opposed to just trading it in for a 5.0. Besides, it won't get as good gas mileage as stock or just tuned because you'll have your foot in it all the time.

I'm not very mechanically inclined. I know the basics like exhaust cai and maybe headers with directions. lol. I wouldn't do a turbo or supercharger.

He asked i simply answered never said if it was a good idea or not. And yea sure u can get a 5.0 but then ur gna end up putting lots of $$$ in that then they will tell u well why didnt u buy a shelby then ur gna do the same then they will say why didnt u buy a super snake at that point just buy a ****en Cobra Jet bahahahaha

True, that's what many will tell ya, but I don't listen. I'm not saying you personally are wrong. OP asked is it cheaper to slap a supercharger on a six (and be faster) rather than trading for a 5.0. That's what I was questioning is if it's cheaper or faster. Some people have a goal of making their sixer a beast and I think that's cool. It's all about what you like.

I hear insurance costs all the time. I always thought that myself. When I called State Farm was there. They told me the difference between the V6 premium and the Shelby GT500 was $11 a month.

Probably because I am an old fart

Nope i live on my own. Its only my mom and she lives with my aunts, my dad aint in the picture. Im one hard working 19yr old trust me. Saved 3years to buy my mustang. I pay for my apt with my best friend as a roomie. My credit is pretty good having two credit cards always paid before due dates and renting an apt and owning a cellphone with Tmobile the only company that raises ur credit score. Trust me my insurance was expensive as **** when i started driving at 16! Sh*t was 60 for just liability! My brother pays 20 bucks for his liability -___- my insurance is cheap because ive been with them for 3 years going on 4 in two months and i get student discount. And no accidents discount.

Just an example, I have a 3 year old Silverado LT2, and the V6 Pony Pak Premium and pay $100 a month for $250 deductible and all the super works cover both. Example, I can rent a brand new $98,000 RV motor home in Nevada to drive to the desert and they cover the entire unit for the same $250 deductible. (but not during the burning man event, they wont insure that, must have been some history behind that)

But that is not what I am trying to find out about the insurance issue. I want to know, like it was back when I was 17-25, the difference between the V6 and a GT or GT500 for a driver of that age? (not counting those with records of bad karma)

If I were you I would trade it for a 5.0..
After you put a turbo on the v6 that's pretty much all you can do to it to be a lil faster than a 5.0.. but with the 5.0 you'll have more room to make it a lot faster and run 10s or maybe 9s

People with 5.0s get nods and looks. People with a V6 outrunning the 5.0s get stares. Just saying.

Do what you like, but don't do it cause it's cheaper. Do it cause you can afford it and you want to, because when you modify things you will have to invest more time in the vehicle for maintenance upkeep. Been there, done that.

Our V6's can already run 10s on stock internals (both with supercharger and turbo, as CFM proved). That's more than a bit faster, we still don't know the full potential of these engines yet. If he still wants it streetable, 10s and 9s are pushing the practicality limit and getting into "garaged toy" categories.
