What kind of rwhp could i expect to see if i were to add it to my 2012 5.0? Should i go with a different one? Wife gave me the ok to get one come the first if the year, so i figured id get a head start. If i order the kit with the tuner, is there anything else im gonna have to purchase besides the gauges and stuff? Really want a roots style blower.

From what I've seen this kit and the Paxton are the best. If you want roots type then I would go with this one. You will be a lil over 500rwhp with its tune the way it comes. Always room to grow to. You will have to retune after you add a diff pulley and intake, but then you should be at 600rwhp. Another plus is that it's cheaper then FRPP blower and the tune is less conservative from the get go.

Can't go wrong with this blower. Invest in a off road x pipe. Gauges are not a must

Will the stock motor handle 600? Or am i gonna have to go inside and get forged internals? I was hoping for 500+. 600 maybe down the road a few years.

You will be fine. The 600 is after you start tweaking but should be fine. Many are running it close to 600 with no problems on stock motor. The kit as it comes with 5 something to the wheels will be fine. Know that the kit comes tuned for a stock car with no work done except for axel backs.

Check these guys out. I got my whipple kit from them n they have four different roush kits. Ranging between 7 and 13 psi if boost. 550 to 750 fly wheel horse and the tune is done by John lund. Best tuner in the business IMO. Otherwise vmp tuning also has some solid kits and vmp is no slouch with their tunes done by Justin starky. His wife is in the 9s on a stock bottom and their tuning. Can't remember what vmp site is but just google it and it will pop right up

Justin Starkey is the best when comes to the roush blower. He helped invent it for the 5.0. If notice the vmp blower looks just like the roush.

Really?..maybe you should do some research. Some guys are at the 30,000 mark blown since day one with no issues. I have @7000 miles on my car. All with a supercharged since I bought it with 4 miles on it. Over 75 passes at drag strip, and over 100 street pulls. With top speeds of over 160. Hold strong. Oh and this is my second 5.0.

I've heard about 50,000 miles on SC you'd be noticing differences. Or at least that is what my Ford tech said. So was going to stick with 90mm pulley until out of warrantee then I'd push it. But figure if it goes that far down the line I can get a good forged crate to drop in and have fun. Not sure what engine but maybe the 5.8 if it proves itself. Wonder what it would take to the GT to make it ready for the GT500's engine? Be interesting to know.

Ya really. 30,000? Hahaha you think that is long term? Talk to me when you have 150,000. And not everyone cares about drag racing like you do buddy. Most of us want to have a supercharger on our street cars that also need LONG term durability and we don't want to be building a new motor every so many miles. All I ever hear from you is drag this drag that show me your time slip...lol maybe you should join a race forum

Alright so thirst if all reason he mentioned 30,000 miles is because that's documented most miles on a blown 2011 mustang gt n up is at right now. The other thing is if u want a car to go 150k then yeah u better not throw a power adder on. I would be hoping that could be chalked up as common sense. So to each is there own and longevity on a stock motor with a power adder going at least 30k miles without a breaking something is a pretty good start n we will see how far it goes. I Agee that it won't go 150k with stock rods in fact I would imagine that any mechanically inclined person as well as most monkeys can agree with u that.

Thanks guys youve all given me some things to think about. It is my dd for now until i can get a pos truck for good gas mileage. I gotta have the blower. May get the kit that gets 500 rwhp and then go for broke when i get the truck. Sure dont expect to get 150,000 out of the car with the blower on but will be alot more "reckless" when ive got another car to fall back on.

Re: Roush TVS2300

I have Never owned a car with or even near 150K miles, any car I've ever owned that was approaching 100K, I was/will be getting rid of. That's just me. For People who are looking at cars for 150K+, then look into a different car, not a Mustang.

I sadly agree. If you want a car to last that long you should have bought a Toyota/Honda or a fiesta. Next trying to get your mustang there don't mod it at all. Any time you mod a car you are cutting its life down.

Cant agree more. I don't plan on getting anything close to 150k miles out of my stang, and I have never driven anything into that kind of mileage territory other than my Jeep Grand Cherokee which was more reliable at getting me out of work (due to breaking down and leaving me stranded) than anything else.

On the other hand, my DD is a Mazda2 5-speed manual and I fully expect to get 200k out of it.
