Roush or SVT?

So looking at superchargers for my 2011 5.0 and wondered the opinions to which setup is better. Roush or SVT? Thoughts?

If u buy the Ford Racing Whipple 525hp, it comes with a warranty if u have a authorized Ford Dealer install it. Then when the warranty runs out, u buy the smaller pulley to jump up to 624hp. Best bang for the buck

If I'm not mistaken, that warranty is only for the SC itself... Not the drivetrain of the car. Although having said that, the ford racing is an excellent option, 624 is no joke. I think it comes down to weather or not it's a daily driver, mine is so I'm hesitant but if you're driving it 2 days a week then throw the 624 on and represent.

This car is going to be my daily driver. My last supercharged vehicle ended up getting better gas mileage when driving like normal. Can anyone comment on the mileage? Or is the thought the 624 HP is going to damage something quicker with putting more miles on it? I'd like the 600+ HP but I want the vehicle to survive. Not that there isn't replacement parts but I'd rather not purposely cause damage that could be avoided.

Well ...check out the test on the roots style supercharger that Edelbrock has for the 5.0-in 5.0 magazine!

twin screw is more efficient than a roots, no way around it.

I daily drive my cobra with 618 rwhp and am in the process of installing a larger lower pulley to bump my boost up 2# to get in the 640+ range. I get 22-24 mph highway, and around 16 city.

Remember, 600+ hp will only be at full throttle. When not at full throttle, you are doing no more damage to the car than if it were stock. The blower is just the upper intake at that point.

In response to your question, I'd go with the whipple like was mentioned.

Kenne Bell shouldn't even be in question on the 11. The TVS blowers are dominating.

It will be fine with 624 kit. It's only about 570ish rwhp.

KB do make more power. But I have seen some problems with them lasting a while. Plus the KB is an ugly *** blower. You would think that they would make them look a little cooler. Go whipple.

Mine is only the 2.3. Pushing 20 psi. But scfm is what really matters. The bigger ones push just as much air with less boost pressure. That would be nice but I'm good for now.

Re: Roush or SVT?

the KB vs Whipple they go back and forth and hardware AND tune come into play with MANY other variables that cant be controlled regardless both are great blowers.

Yeah that's true I hear a lot of guys having engine issues down the road with KB setups. Also would depend on how offer you're driving the thing and how hard you're gonna press it

Making over 1400 hp?

Don't know of anyone actually doing this but with KBs reputation on the line I don't see them making this up:

Mustang 5.0 (2011) Supercharger Kit

You just compared a 4.2 liter blower to a 2.3 liter blower.

Ok, so a Procharger F4 supports over 3000 HP. Procharger>*

Re: Roush or SVT?

its a constant back and forth between manuf. who ever has the top number today wont tomorrow~ plus who cares most of that is tweeked dyno stuff and pushing every hp they can out of the car... not a good way for a daily driver or weekend car... no one needs to have a tune at the limit.

Re: Roush or SVT?

centri's are great setups, they only lack in the down load powerband, thats why root and twin screw blowers are more fun for street cars~ more low end power~

Where's the link to the 1400 HP KB?

I know they make a big blower that fits their intake but where is the kit?

At the end of the day you can't find a KB powered 5.0 that is faster than the fastest whipple car, which makes the statement "kb makes more power" wrong.

Already posted it, and if you actually ready what I posted in the first place I was comparing SVT to KB not whipple.

Nice name btw

I read the link you posted. They don't make a kit for the 4.2 blower.

Which SVT blower are you talking about? The one on a terminator or the one on a gt500?

I'm thinking you don't know much about cars.

Alright man I'm not trying to argue, I don't know why you're gunning for the ultimate ******* award but on the top of the page there's an arrow pointing to the 2.8 liter unit that explains that it can be upgraded to 4.2 and that it goes up to 1400 HP.

Not sure why were still talking about this.

Also I'm talking about the svt blower for the 5.0
