He asked me if I wanted to supercharge it? My reply of course "Does a beat **** in the woods? Ofcourse I do" and he offered to sell me the stock one that came on his 500. So question number 1 is. Will it fit on my 12 GT? Question 2 what would be a reasonable price?
You could possibly retrofit it with a custom made adapter, but that could get expensive. Then you would have to make a matching intake as well as custom tuning. Not to mention the eaton on the gt500s is far from impressive on those motors and you'd probably suffer from big time heat fade with your high revving 5.0 making the boost it would take to compete with other systems made for the 5.0. You'd have to incorporate a water to air cooling system, and at the end of the day you will have spent all this time and money to put a run of the mil supercharger on your car. Not saying the gt500 supercharger doesn't make good power but the 5.4 is a totally different monster than the 5.0. You need something with a higher flowing design like the tvs2300 if your going roots style, and the cost of a custom set-up far outweighs the off the shelf new price.
Having said that, id say that his used blower is worth probably in the neighborhood of $500-650 provided it has the lower manifold, elbow, and throttle body. If he expected more for any less than that I would walk.
