2014 vs 2015 v6

Are the cars generally built the same? Similar engine and similar placement and measurements? The reason I ask is can I buy a supercharger kit designed for a 2014 v6 and have my local speedshop install it with minor custom fab? Or are they very different?

P.S. I have yet to go component by component and take measurements which I may endup doing.

The 2015 is still very new, try contacting procharger and asking them, if they say no, I'm sure they'll tell you when you will be able to buy a supercharger for the 2015. Do it once and do it right, plus you never know if the kit for the 15 will have any special or upgraded pieces.

The entire engine bay is different for the new body style, its possible the procharger bracket wont even have the unit in the same place. I would not take the risk.

Thats what I was thinking but hoping it wasn't so lol. Im goona call around anyway and see what my local ford racing places would charge for custom fab if I provide the supercharger head unit.

Probably a **** load of money ... You're talking about custom fabbing a precision bracket, that will need to be machined at no small fee, to hold the supercharger in the right place so that it:
fits
Is in line with the belt
allows routing of the intake and charge pipes

Assuming that isnt right the first time, and i wouldnt be surprised if it isnt, they'll have to scrap it and make another one and that surely wont be cheap.
Next, you'll have to have the intercooler and piping custom made, from scratch, with brackets, routing and the works.
You'll also have to hope they get the MAF placement right the first time, otherwise you're going to be playing hop scotch between tuner and fabricator as they continue to point the finger at eachother... trust me, i have been there before, trying to tune around a BS intake some guy made and i honestly was about to tell the guy to get lost because i was tired of trying to make it work.
Most welding services are ~$100 an hour, so imagine a few cuts / welds trying to get things right and you can see how this quickly becomes a lot of money. Its just not worth it, most race shops just dont have the means of making something like this from scratch.
