Supercharger

If I decide to supercharge my 2014 mustang v6 automatic what other changes would I need to do to the car so nothing would happen to it from the drastic power change?

Right now, yes. The procharger.

Just remember, you're not going to get ridiculous horsepower from that V6 with a supercharger. You'll spend thousands as well.
Is it really worth it??

Yes, if you are out of warranty and not making payments, it's a solid way to have a fun car. That being said, the car is probably neither of those and you are probably better off putting that money towards your loan or towards a trade on a 5.0.

Procharging is probably the safest bet for forced induction. Make sure you have all the supporting mods, gears, driveshaft, suspension, etc.

You will get a good 500 rwhp plus with a good tune on factory internals. Define ridiculous HP? 😎

Why not? If you have the money and the time, go for it!

I'd be more than happy with that amount of non ridiculous HP lol. That will be my next big mod. Gonna finish up my suspension and get a one piece ds then I'll be going with a procharger. For me it just works better then trading up to a 5.0. I'm very happy with the amount of mods I've done over the past couple of years with my 13 and would hate to start all over again with a new car. Besides up here we have ridiculous fuel prices, tax and a gas guzzler tax on anything over 4.0. I can honestly say I'm a very proud owner of a 3.7 stang, absolutely no regrets.

500RWHP is more than enough for a fun car, ask the guys with the crazy 800RWHP and they say its not even fun to normally drive.

Let's see one... Then tell me what was replaced and what the cost was. I doubt the factory internals can withstand 500 at the rear wheels.

I have 500 at the crank on my 4.6 and that's about the extent of the power with stock internals. A few more at best.

So you think the fuel economy will be the same with a blower?? Look, I hear you on being a proud owner and not wanting to start over again, and I certainly agree. Blowing a V6 just doesn't make sense to me.

More power usually requires more fuel, no secret there, and at 3.7 litres it keeps the governments hands out of my pocket with their gas guzzler tax on anything over 4.0, also the 15% tax on a 38k GT is not very appealing to me. Not quite sure why blowing a 6 doesn't make sense to you? People turbo/sc 4s that will run 10s 1/4 mile, makes sense to them and I get why they do it, a passion for their ride and to go fast which is exactly what I have, nothing but respect for them.

I guess its just what people want to do with their cars, and hey it puts out some pretty incredible numbers even if its ONLY 400 450wrhP lol damn right I'm down for that! I love the 5.0 also, and think its a fantastic platform to work with and mod, but like I said earlier I'm very happy and proud with my 3.7, not only does it fit my lifestyle with a wife and two young boys, it gives me the ability to build it up over time on my own schedule, and not the banks, while making sure my kids get what they need and play the sports they want to play without the added financial restrictions of a heavier consistent car payment would over X amount of years, also the tax thing and gas guzzler tax thing, not to mention higher insurance ect ect.
Hope this maybe clarifies just one of the reasons why someone would want to "blow a V6"

Exactly sir. That's why the 3.7 is a better and stronger engine than the 4.6. You're 4.6 can safely handle no more than 450 rwhp on factory internals. The 3.7 can handle 500 plus rwhp on factory internals. Ask LPF on here how much power his 3.7 is making on factory internals. 600 rwhp plus for months and completely fine.

Respectfully, you must not be familiar with the 3.7 engine and what is being done too them with boost. I say this not to degrade or belittle you but just giving friendly education about the 3.7 motor. It's very strong that can withhold a lot of power on factory internals.

As awesome as the coyote engine is the cyclone is equally awesome but just makes less power.

I'm glad to see that you have your priorities in order, you'd be surprised at the number of people who don't. You're still however, going to need to fork out over 5 grand and it won't be on your schedule, rather a one time purchase, unless of course you finance.
Just wanting to get 'blown' is reason enough to do it and if that's your goal, go for it.

Well said. As I find it hard to believe, I do believe what you say and stand corrected. I still would be worried about the longevity of the stock components, I guess time will tell.
I'm glad to hear that this Cyclone is stronger than the 4.6 as I plan to run the 3.7 into the ground.

I agree about the longevity. Will our 3.7's last 100,000 miles running 550-600 rwhp. No idea. I ain't gonna find out. Ha ha ha.

Yeah I know, 5k is a large investment. My wife still gives me the evil eye every time I even mention it lol.

The way i see it. If shelby trusts the procharger for their gts then it should be safe. I got friend with an 07 gt procharged been running great for 50000 miles
