Roots vs Centrifugal vs Twin-Screw

I'm getting a 2014 Mustang V6 pretty soon and I want to add a supercharger to it right away so it can be up to par with the GT's.

The problem is that I live in Texas, so heat is definitely a factor.

I don't think I'm going to race it, I just want to add some more horsies for fun.

My main goal (which I've said in my other post) is that I want a car that just beats the hell out of me. I want it to bring evil smiles to everyone's faces that rides with me.

I know what the pros/cons are of each one, but I would really like to hear y'alls opinion.

So which would be better for me, Roots, Centrifugal, or Twin-Screw supercharger?

+1, what is this, his 5th thread on the subject?

If you want torque down low, and the whine, go twin screw. Centrifugal is less stress on the engine I believe, and usually is great for a DD, as it still has more torque, but it isn't as soon as you mash the gas. Not sure about the roots style.

Actually, for V6's. I think those are the only options, a procharger (isn't that a centrifugal? ), or a turbo.

That's correct, the only supercharger for V6's is the procharger centrifugal.

Same topic just slightly different questions. You could have just created one thread to cover all your questions. It is what it is, I really don't care anyways lol.

Just get the 2014 V6 and you're already at the 05-10 GT level. Think of the money you just saved!

I wasn't aware that anyone made a supercharger for the 2014 V6. The last time I checked the procharger was only available for 2011 & 2012.

Try to understand, you just don't slap on a Supercharger or Turbo Charger. You have way to many things to do first.

Suspension (Shocks, Struts, Strut Mounts, Springs, Adj. Panhard Bar, Adj. Rear Lower and Upper Control Arms, Maybe Camber Plates), Exhaust (Headers, Catted X-Pipe, Axlebacks), Driveshaft, Tune (Remove Speed limiter), CAI and Wheels and Tires.

That's just a start. Depending on whether you do your own work, around $8,000 to $9,500.

Now all the things you have to do with building your engine. Another $7,500 more or less.

Did I miss anything?

Thanks for the refresher but I think we all took that into account. After the necessary pre-mods, which is the best.

Yeah,you missed the fact that you don't have to have any of those things done first in order to boost your car. You can slap a blower on a completely stock ride and enjoy it.

Nothing can do a more efficient job than a screw compressor. The only true compressor of atmosphere of the 3. Alcohol Funny Cars are a great example. They are not cheap because of licensing agreements ($) with the original designer from Sweden, I think. Turbo's work best at steady rpms and the "centrifugal blower" is a just a marketing band aide to avoid the higher cost of the screw compressor. JMO.

I do stand corrected. The Procharger is now offered for 2014 V6s, but they don't offer the full kit. Unlike earlier yrs., the 2014 is a tuner kit, requiring a Dyno. The others are available as bolt on & go. When I first got my 2014, last year they did not offer any option from Procharger.

If your going to buy a V6 and immediately want GT power why not just buy a GT? I don't see the point in buying a brand new car, spending 5-8 k in parts which will void the warranty when you could just spend 7 k more and get a GT with the power levels your wanting and retain your warranty. I drive a V6 so I'm one of those 5.0 of nothing guys. I love it as far as the balance of power, fuel economy for DD. But from a practical standpoint it really doesn't make much sense.

Sure it makes sense

The OP wants a blown six.
That's what he wants so that's whet he needs to get.
All he needs is the SC and a drive shaft and he will have what he wants.
Having a choice and building what you want is what we call hot rodding and is what Americans have been doing for years.

Yes and no on the centrifugal. They have a major benefit: easy to inter cool with an air to air unit.

The only option for a twin screw is to do an air to water unit. Its not as easy to install and requires more parts that can possibly fail. There are examples of remote mount twin screws, but I haven't seen one since the 3.8 Tbirds. Whipple's sound amazing though.

I've owned two Grand Prixs, both 3.8 supercharged and one with a decent list of mods. Everything has its up and downs, but I'd go turbo or whipple, in that order if given the choice.

The 3.7 is a 60* crank, not a 90* like the 5.0. There isnt enough room in the valley for a twin screw style blower. Your only options are Procharger or turbo.
