superchargers

I have a 2011 mustang gt and I was wondering what's the best Ford Racing supercharger that I should get, but not overly expensive?

I have a 15% coupon on anything ford racing so ill get basically $1,000 off so it should be a good deal! But If I didn't have that I would go with the Roush...

I thought ford racing went with the tvs blower now? Isn't the the same as the roush?

I'm almost positive Roush and FRPP use the same blower, I'd say get the Mammoth, but that 4.0 liter blower is a huge heat sink, look into Hellions turbo set up or even the Vortech blowers, they seem to be good.

In my research i found that the 2.3 is wayyy more efficient than a bigger blower unless you built an engine and go BIG. Vmp tuning is getting 800whp+ from the roush 2.3. If your concern is that you want to go big in the future with building an engine and the blower will hold u back then get a centri SC and you will run out of engine before you run out of SC as they can support 1000whp+

Roush make a supercharger that doesn't void the warranty now I heard. Either do that or go with a Kenny bell

Yea there is a range of efficiency depending on the blower you're using.

Roushes have always had warranty as far as I know. Every sc has warranty but roushes covers drivetrain to. Just spoke to my service advisor about it cause I was concerned about my extended warranty being voided and he said no it won't void that and it will go along with it as long as a ford tech installs it

Get that in writing...

The way it works is you have to purchase the setup and have it installed by an authorized dealership. You run their tune and must purchase a seperate warranty. It covers your drivetrain for the remainder of the initial 3/36 factory warranty.

The warranty is not through ford, it is through ford racing, an entirely different entity. You must deal with ford racing service advisors in the event of any problems

I'm thinking of getting the procal from FRPP until i buy a roush. So since I would go from factory warranty to FRPP, would i be eligible for the roush drivetrain warranty?

I would highly suggest calling and speaking with a representative from Roush. I will assume they do not have a greater warranty than ford racing.

Do not believe anything a service advisor at your local dealership may tell you. Anything other than a minor repair is not decided in house. They have to wait for a rep from ford/frpp/roush to make the decision for them.

Did they ever name a price for it? I think people were guessing 10-12.

If you got with the FR S/C the 525HP you get a 12 month/12,000 mile warranty with it. The 624 HP comes with nothing. But that said, I believe you can buy a warranty from Whipple to go along with it. You would have to check out their website. Of course to get the warranty you have to have a Ford Dealer install it. The tune is canned and comes from Ford Racing. It is very conservative in that you are only getting 7 PSI out of it. Not sure what the 624 HP gets (I think 9 PSI). Of course you can go your own route later with a custom tune and get more out of the S/C in addition replace the pulley and get an additional 99 HP bringing you to the 624 HP. My dealer told me if I do that that it is much less than what Ford Racing is charging because I already have the ProCal tuner.

I don't need it in writing I don't need a separate warranty when I've bought the extended. The extended is the factory to 5 years and since I'm in my 2nd year of it it would go to the 5th year. I can't see it going to a ford racing advisor when the dealer doesn't have one so that would mean f a problem would to occur they would have to fly one down to the dealer which im sure they are not willing to because its alot of hassle so they would rather leave that simple task to a normal advisor. I've spoken to the Service manager himself and he's had a few mustangs with the same situation and still retain warranty.

Lol ok, gl with that.

To anyone else that is curious please call ford racing or roush. I have. If I could get a full warranty on a sc gt there would be one in my driveway.

There are parts of the warranty that have to be approved by ford themselves and they are not going to approve it on an SC GT correct ?

It may just be me but why be concerned with a warranty if your willing to supercharge? If you mod accept that there is no warranty, if your break something just build it better IMHO

You have to purchase the warranty. If u don't buy the warranty and a authorized mechanic installs it you have zero warranty. Call roush and talk to then as I did when I was wondering. CALL ROUSH!!!

There's a parts warranty which is covered. I'm not sure if there is a difference between Canada or u.s but any supercharger pack states what the warranty is can even go on their site and look. Since roush and ford are together they go hand in hand. I spent 4 grand for extended warranty and I doubt ford would lie to their customer about it being voided by adding a supercharger that's being installed by their technicians from a brand they honour. That's like buying a new roush with their sc and getting extended warranty and them being like no sorry it's only
Covered under 3 year main factory instead of the 5 grand you spent to extend it. If it was a different product that ford wasn't associated with it would be a totally different scenario. If ford was telling people the warranty is still in tact when really it's not they would be getting some pretty big lawsuits.

No, it's different. That sc roush car you used as example comes with sc on it, therefore they obviously honor the warranty. You bought the extended warranty for your car as is, with no sc. Once you add that and modify your car it's a hole new set of rules. You're free to do as you choose but if you decline to follow everyone else's advice in this post and your engines happens to let go I wouldn't expect it to be replaced if I were you. Your service manager can tell you whatever he wants but once ford denies a claim I wouldn't expect any dealer to replace an engine out of their own pocket just because you have his "word".

The dealer I deal with paid for a new tranny after doing warranty on it for 2nd and 3rd gear. They messed up reverse and I told them I'm not taking my car back til they put a new tranny in. Total repair was around a grand and the new tranny was 5 grand with install. Needless to say they did as I told them and bit the bullet. Like i said if dealers were saying one thing then doing the other I'm sure lawsuits would be happening all over the place as they cannot do that.

---------- Post added at 07:25 AM ---------- Previous post was at 07:22 AM ----------

The sc itself would be covered under roush. Everything else is cover under the ford warranty. Regardless if my engine or tranny goes while
Under the sc the extended power train warranty is not voided as its being installed by a ford technician. If it was installed by anyone else then yeah warranty would be voided.
