Boosting soon....advice?

So, I've got my order secured with beefcake for a vortech tuner kit and I really just wanted any advice that I could get from guys that have experience with the kit. I plan on installing myself with some help from friends. I've done supercharger installs on previous vehicles and helped some friends with turbo swaps and other misc. stuff so I have some experience around bolt-on stuff, not a total newb lol.

I would love to chime in but the only vortech systems I've installed we're on 99-04 stangs. Are the systems for the 5.0 self contained or do you still have to tap into the oil pan?

From what I've seen you will have to cut into the front fascia. Not a big deal if you have the tools and it looks the same when you put it back together.

Poloka did roush. I did Paxton and it wasn't too bad. Just time consuming bc of utilizing existing hoses and stuff. Shortening, moving, etc. cutting the fascia perfectly was annoying. Idk if the intercooler is as big as the one with the Paxton kit but either way you will have to trim. Be careful when bending the AC line, mine broke and we all got high pretty quick haha. Good luck! Oh and a lift is highly recommended!

I would think it would be similar with them both utilizing the a/a style i/c
but i'm sure if the dimensions are different then the trimming will for sure be different

Yeah, Roush phase 2. Will take a look at their phase 3 that they released at sema. No cutting up front on bumper except trimming on the front cover of the engine block.

My bro-in-law and I installed the Paxton tuner kit on my 2012 GT(he did most of the work). We took our time and did it over a weekend. Just be patient with the install, follow the instructions and you will be fine. You do have to trim quite a bit for the intercooler, but once you put it back together, it's not noticeable. I suggest trimming and test fitting several times so that you don't trim too much. Modifying the radiator fan and hoses is what's most time consuming IMO. It's all worth it though as it looks very clean in the end. Sorry I don't have any pics of the trimming. Good luck and here are a few pics that I do have. I also suggest printing the latest instruction manual from their website and going through it beforehand. Good luck!

Thanks a lot for the pictures and the info!! I plan on taking my time with it and trying my best to get everything right the first time. I have a secondary vehicle if I have to use it but I would much rather be able and drive the stang lol. What did you put down on the dyno? I plan on getting the intake upgrade because I no longer have my stock air box. How much clearance did you have with the bossIM and the TB by the supercharger? Reason I ask is becuase I plan on later down the road upgrading to the bigger TB if it will fit with the S/C.

I'm sure you can get all done in a weekend (10-12 hours taking your time). There is clearance for a bigger TB, but I think it would be a waste IMO. Your car will make plenty of power with the CAI upgrade. If you want more, just swap the pulley. I put down 622rwhp and 466tq STD back in July in 95 degree Texas heat through the stock air box. The car definitely feels faster now in the cooler weather. I don't think you will have any problem hitting around 620-640rwhp or so. Keep us posted!

Yeah, the TB upgrade was really just an upgrade I was toying with not really something I was too serious about lol but it's good to know there is room for it. Honestly I'll be happy with somewhere in the 550-580whp range. I'm just ready to get back into a boosted vehicle bc they're just awesome lol. I'll be taking as many pictures as I can before,during,and after the install and get some dyno videos as well.

@ KalEl370.......car looks awesome and those are some great #s!

@ milgt......make sure you do a build thread. That could come in handy for some of us later down the line. (if you have the time)

I don't mind doing that at all, I'll start one after I get all the pictures and dyno tune completed. Hopefully I'll have the kit sometime around the 20th of this month but not sure yet.

a few things to consider:

If you cant afford to have the car blow up or mess up (engine etc) then dont do it

If you want to keep warranty then dont do it

It will always cost more to get everything fine tuned, and with that the tune is VERY important so make SURE to get it done and done right

Yup, considered all of them.

Rebuild if i have to, but don't foresee it on a base kit.

Lol, warranty went out the window when i bought the car.(never have trusted in a warranty anyway)

I will never trust in an email tune again after my last car...only dyno/local tunes for me 100%. The extra little cost is worth the extra safety i feel with it.

Just got off the phone with terry at beefcake and my kit should be here on wednesday of this coming week and I'm gonna make plans to install on the following saturday if all goes well.

I need a boost gauge and also AFR gauge but I'm at a loss of how and where to install them on this car because ,unlike my last boosted car, I actually care about cutting and drilling in places on my mustang.... any suggestions?

Check out roush gauge pod. They are slick. Fit in your air outlet for your heater or ac.. Not sure if that explains it but check it out..

+1 on the Roush pod. If you really want to monitor AFR, I love the Aeroforce Interceptor gauge. If you go with two gauges, I recommend the SOS dual pillar pod. Good luck!

I know with the dyno tune and all I really shouldn't have to monitor my afr and really my boost since it won't change with the pulley that is on there but I like to be able and watch each time I'm pulling just in case something , whatever it may be, happens and I can see it.

I know what you mean, that's why I like the interceptor gauge. I monitor both banks with it and I have an autometer mechanical boost gauge.

I like the vent pod. I've got it with the LED gauge. White, blue, and I believe another color. No red. Was disappointed. I just have it on white for lights on and off. I like it. Just ran into garage to snap a few pics. Sorry for the clarity.

Mechanical Vacuum Boost Gauge
that was the setup I was thinking of going with, but wanting to monitor my afr as well I really don't want to have gauges spreading out in my car lol. I was thinking of just looking into the center triple gauge pod that ford has for the dash. IDK yet, all in the planning stages for now

I bought mine from American Muscle. The gauge is a little pricey ($240), but plugs into the obdII port and monitors everything. Here's a pic of mine. I'm gonna get another interceptor gauge and put two of them in the pillar, move the boost gauge to the vent and get rid of the oil pressure gauge.
