Vortech?

So I came into about 5k from family and such. So the car has a intake bama tune off road pipe catback and its lowered . So I know traction will be a issue but should I just take the leap now slap on a vortech and run it on low boost or am I asking for trouble? I don't race it just love sound and car shows been getting me jealous

Haha well suspension will def be done dont think i would never touch it just would like to take out the one that costs most first and to be honest I would never be driving to where I'd be using all 500 ponies except for track days once a month so wouldn't be much different from now . Things I want are
Reliable and daily driver friendly

Vortech v3 kit on the 5.0 is good for 605hp and 473tq. There's no v6 anywhere

If all you have is $5k don't spend it all on 1 thing. Save another $3k then get the Paxton, which costs less then the Vortech and has more potential for higher hp then the Vortech, due to paxton's bigger head unit.

Just remember with the vortech if you break a belt, you have to remove the head unit to replace it. Not the case with the paxton!!

As much fun as boost is, it wouldn't be a bad idea to build the suspension up first. I think you should pick up some LCA's, UCA's, Panhard bar, and one piece driveshaft, then save up a little more for a blower. This way you'll hook much better, reduce wheel hop, and not have to worry about breaking the driveshaft under all of that power!

That's just what I would do though. I've always been for building up a car before adding more power to it!

---------- Post added at 11:34 AM ---------- Previous post was at 11:30 AM ----------

Haha I agree suspension is a must and will be adding Uca and lca but once again I don't race often mostly wana get it out of way tune it as a dd and enjoy then build suspension so don't worry I will . And beefcake racing is making amazing numbers and is a amazing guy for advice and so are all you . Wanted to buy from AM but beefcake is giving me a better deal

Vortech v3
1000 pd injectors
Boost to pump
And remote tuning and he said with my mods safe number would be around 640ish but he said to make sure I do suspension or I won't move lol

Hence why we are saying suspension first. You'll put all that money into FI and I could walk you at ever stop light without trying Lol.

This car has no s/c and the stock suspension. You sure you want to send 600 hp to this.

Good man! If I had the coin to buy a vortech I'd do it 3 times in a heartbeat! That v3 can handle 750rwhp which you'll never reach without blowing your stock motor to 20 pieces lol.

If you got the money, just buy the SC first since it's a daily driver. I have lowering springs only and 559whp from my Paxton and its not hard to handle at all. Full suspension is a waste unless you hittin a track. When it's cold out, you aren't getting traction to the ground regardless, when it's 75+ you'll be fine. Not dissing the suspension upgrades, they help, but for the way I use the car and the way you are going to use it, I would get it ASAP

I don't agree exactly. I know I am not FI, but with full suspension it was hitting 35 degrees out and I was zero traction loss really still. Part of that was the summer tires, but they were that, summer tires. I have trouble breaking them free even with cold weather.

I said it would help, but for his use he might as well get it out the way and buy the SC. I don't like launching my car anyway, hard on it no matter traction or not. Start on a 40 roll and she's gone... Suspension or not.

Procharger is more expensive. It's all personal preference. I've had a P1SC and a D1SC and loved them both! My little 4.6 had a crazy torque curve on the D1SC. Vortech, in this case, is cheaper and proven. I have seen many 5.0s with vortechs, and you have the recipe for a 10 second car with a factory sealed 5.0 and a vortech alone. At a local car show, a 2013 boss 5.0 is making 773rwhp on his stock motor with a vortech running 14psi and E85.
