New Guy

Hey all, I am new to this forum and new to Mustangs. Although I have always wanted a Mustang this is my first and I cannot be more pleased. 2012 GT with 3.73 gears. I plan on going as far as I can with it; body kit, horsepower upwards of 650, IRS, full interior, etc and would appreciate any help given.

Re: New Guy

Welcome. Easiest way to that power is a supercharger. Depending on what way you want PD/Centri I suggest a Roush or a Paxton.

Yes that is the way I was gonna go but I am not sure what type to go with? I also read somewhere that Ford was telling technicians to look at cars when brought in for service to see if it is modified and to flag them to void their warranty. I also read that the compression on the new engine is so high that when modifications are made it will at some point destroy the engine.

Correct. There is a TSB out for it. I've posted it like six times before so just search for it.

Sounds like a bunch of FUD to me ... plenty of us have mods and our engines aren't just magically exploding. That said, if you go FI you would benefit from getting some forged pistons that are lower compression.

Excuse my ignorance but what is a TSB? I will look for it. Should I get the forged pistons at the same time as the supercharger and what type is best? Is there anything else internally that I would need to change?

Re: New Guy

Tech Service Bulletin - It's similar to a recall but it's only a set of instructions for a car that exhibits a specific issue and not a mandatory procedure. Most recalls have a TSB explaining how to fix them, but not all TSBs are recalls ... if that makes sense.

PM me you email and I'll send you the pdf version of it. I shouldn't have been so snippy about it earlier, getting slaughtered at work today...

You can have a supercharger installed by Ford and keep warranty. Also the compression isn't an issue unless you want to run 20lbs of boost. The engines seem to be ok up to about 12lbs of boost. After that you are pushing it.

Love the car. What kind of times are you getting at the track? I haven't ran mine yet, but I'm considering putting the Boss intake on.

Are you saying have ford install the supercharger? Does it have to be their's? I also want that supercharger whine like on the GT500. I'm only looking for about 625-650 of reliable horsepower.

Thanks, yeah I want to do so much to it. I plan on a full exhaust from the headers all the way back with three inches in diameter. What is the difference between long tube and shorty headers? X-pipe and H-pipe? Do I have to have one manufacturer for both or can you mix and match. Does anyone know about the electronic cut off where you run your exhaust and then at the flip of a switch you run straight headers?

I haven't been to a track with it yet. I have been reading about everyone using the boss intake and seeing good results, I am interested in that higher redline though, 7800
