Roush or Whipple 2.3?

Ok this will be a choice for me in the up coming months as I am coming close for the stang to being paid off. I have always wanted pd supercharger but never had the chance to do anything like that with my 87. I am not looking for anything above 650 hp as this will stay my daily driver snow or no snow. I really like the whine sound of the Whipple but heard the roush is more efficient. Which supercharger has the most benefits?

Install will be done by a buddy's shop but running will be somewhere else in Texas

Roush is going to be better for what you're lookin for. However 650 is borrowed time and do you really want that much for a Nebraska DD?

Haven't heard anything bad for either but roush is what I'm getting. The 625 hp one. Reason is it has the factory warranty of your car so can
Bag it without a worry

I prefer to hear engine and exhaust instead of a supercharger whine. It keeps people wondering "wtf does he have under the hood." I prefer the roush with a vmp tune, it's what I did and 580whp later I'd say I'm happy.

The roush 625 kit does not honor the cars warranty. Only the roush parts. For that kind of warranty for roush to honor you need the 575 hp kit.

I said 650 so that way it puts a limit on power I'm honestly happy with only 500, I already have this car tuned so I'm really not looking to keep warranty but I really want to be able to keep it my dd as well as drag it couple times a year. Right now I'm doing all the supporting mods for a power adder. I'm stationed in Minot,ND also. So I will be traveling down to Texas for the install

I believe it is a dealer warranty. I've seen those. I will say the 625 kit I have is a noticeable difference from a stage 3 I test drove with the 575 kit. Could just be mental but sure seemed like mine pulled harder. I wouldn't go much more cause it is a partial DD.

What I've been told here is that for example if the roush authorized dealer installs the 575 kit, that dealer will honor the cars original warranty. I believe that if you mess up the engine with the 575 kit you will have a hard time claiming ford warranty in a non roush dealer. Any experts out there that can provide feedback on this?

There is nothing as good as the sound of a supercharger! I just have a small roush m90 but the whistle is crazy loud! I love it!

Yeah, except the tvs2300 is so quiet you almost forget it is there. But it's like a sleeper. The other guy has no clue.

Do you still have Roush cai on blower? Saw JLTs video of theirs and it "whined." Still more quiet than previous models.

The stage 2 version has an open CAI. Don't hear the whine in the car. Need a different hood. Something lighter and vented. Maybe then I'd hear it.

Ok so I wouldn't mind making it a sleeper but its still a 2011 mustang which is already fast so it's not a sleeper stock lol. Another issue is that I can sell mine and buy a new 2012 pretty cheap and keep the warranty or I can just install the tuner kit and have vmp tune with my setup now. I only owe 8 thousand left and I can sell it it put that as a down payment for the installed roush charger on a 2012 or say f warranty...

I haven't read all the post ,but, I read yours and if it was me I would go with FRPP 624HP.If you want DD and dependable that is a perfect set-up IMO.It is pricey at AM for like 7,100.00.

Can I have the test results of the roush and frpp blowers as it pertains to daily driving and dependability based on your opinion? Im sure you have had both installed and tested in these conditions. You could post it or send me the link. I'd appreciate it sir. Stirring the pot I am. Lol

The Whipple has a continuum transfunctioner and the frpp has a Whipple continuum transfunctioner installed inside. Lol just having a laugh. I don't know the tech specs but I believe they're the same? Someone of higher intelligence will put me in my place with the caps lock key I'm sure of it.

Was at the Roush Yates performance shop in Mooresville NC today. I am considering the Roush kit. The 575 kit is $6099. Install roughly $700. They actually remove the ECU and send it to Michigan to there shop there and have it flashed with their tune. For $300 you can purchase a 3 year/ 36k drivetrain warranty. This covers from the car with 0 miles. Meaning, if your car has 4000 miles on it, you will have a 3 year 32,000 mile warranty on the entire driveline. I was told anything from a belt to a rear end gear would be replaced if they break. So roughly $7000 out the door for 575 kit with warranty and Roush tune. I'm sure it's not close to the best out there. It's geared towards reliability and drivability not maximum performance numbers, since they stage 3 cars sold through ford are warrantied by Ford. I like the idea of the warranty, but will be a tough choice considering all the extra power being left on the table. The blower itself has a 3 year/ 36k included.

Good install price... Shops in Huston want about $1000-$1200.

Some of the other guys will scream that you should get twin screw or don't bother... Depends on what you want to do long term.

For a 500-600 rwhp potential, and relatively safe tune (Roush then VMP). The Roush kit is a good solution. Not the absolute max HP like KB. But will be a big boost to the stock 412-420 fw HP.

Also cheaper than the other options. But 6k is a lot of money. Some would argue that you are better buying the other ones in case you change your mind later and want crazy HP (assuming you go forged internals).

Some (myself included) will certainly be content with the roush (575 or 630 kits)

Good luck!
