Should I supercharge my Roush RS

So I just bought this car brand new in June. I like the 3.7L but I could really go for a major boost in power. I don't want to replace my Certified Roush with a GT but I want the power. The car is bone stock other than what Roush put on it. Is it worth supercharging it and can I do it safely? Also it's an automatic, will it kill my hp with it being the sport automatic shifting?

Isn't it just the Stage 1 roush appearance package?

Mostly yes, it has the Roush exhaust, the upgraded springs and the lower kit and the GT style rims and came with Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires.

It just depends on your goals. The only supercharger available is the procharger. Being a centrifugal supercharger, it acts similar to a turbo as you don't get that smack in the face torque all at once. During daily driving, it should be very civil. As for MPG, I'm not too sure there.

If you have the financial ability to then yes I would, so you can have a quick Roush. Personally I don't like the idea of a Roush with 305 HP so I would if you care about performance. Either way I'm sure it is a good looking mustang on the outside.

If power was the goal and performance why not the V8 from the factory?

As far as power adder the automatic transmission can help, they do with turbos as you can keep it in boost and for straight line racing they aren't bad as you won't miss a shift. I have done that before and it's not good racing.

The MPG factor can go either way at first you will probably have poor fuel economy because what's the fun of the power if you can't play with it and you will need to learn where it drives the best. After a month or so fuel economy should improve some as the new wears off.

You could probably auto cross the car pretty well though being lighter in the front than the GT or V8 based options. My rule of thumb is erck out every bit of performance I can from the car and lose all the weight I can to get faster before a power adder.

I used a NA 240SX to beat Fox Body GT's with light mods or bolt ons from light to light or in the mountains. In the 1320 I would have more than likely lost but I try pick and chose my battles.

If you have the money, I say go for it. You'll probably get a very noticeable boost in power and your insurance won't go up...not to mention it's still a Roush
