Roushcharged

Any of you out there who have the RS3 stang or a stang that has a Roush stage 2 charger. I would just like to know while im making my decision what yall think of the charger that Roush puts on and, though it doesnt really matter to me all that much, what it does to your mileage? Also, if you had the car before the charger was put on, hows it change the driveability of the car?
So RS3, and Phase 2 Roushcharger. what do yall think?

It's pretty commonly known that the roush tune is very conservative, I've heard people say that their NA car was way more responsive than their roush tuned car. However, these blowers can be monsters with supporting mods and better tune.

What else were you wanting to know?

O yea, mileage I've seen most people report it drops to the teens, but that will vary widely depending on driving style

Wouldn't this be normal just the same thing add turbolag, but with a charger
And like normal road driving how smooth it's it as opposed to stock

No, it's not the same thing, but I guess in a round about way you could think about it like that.

Roush tune is not "aggressive" powerful yea, but not aggressive. Im sure its very smooth, otherwise ford wouldn't allow them to release a roush mustang.

But there are plenty of people that have other than roush tune and absolutely love them, hopefully someone that has a roush charger will chime in. I've got a decently thorough knowledge of these cars but this is one of the things I cannot speak about first hand

When you say other than Roush tune you mean with the Roush charger and a different tune system right?
What do you drive?

I have a Roush blower on my 2011 with all the all the supporting goodies. Sitting at about 17 PSI. The Roush tunes are very conservative, good if you wanna keep warranty. Just to give you an idea what kind of numbers you can put down with a Dyno tune and no warranty lol.

Yea I mean they have non roush tunes (I.e. vmp, AED, Lund, etc) on a roush charged car. I have a 2011 GT and want a roush charger and have done lots of research but cannot afford one yet lol

No, I don't want the full rs3 treatment, I've got my car pretty well personalized and while the roush looks nice, I like mine, plus all my suspension upgrades are as good or better than the roush. I'm just looking to the the supercharger itself. Not sure who ill have tune it yet though

I'm running the phase 2 on my 2011 GT with Roush's tune. I'm happy with it. I've only put 2000 miles on it. Talked to Roush extensively about it cause i just dont want a blown engine. Had it put on when had 16,000 miles on my car. I plan on keeping the car to have fun with but for right now as a part DD I wouldn't want any more power. Now when I get my pickup all bets are off.

The new 5.0 was designed with boost in mind, to a certain point.

Agreed! Yeah, when I start pushing it someday, I'll be in a different position where I wouldn't mind putting in a different motor so if this one blows no biggie. Just gives me an excuse to get what I want. If it holds together, I know I'll be in for some fun driving.
