Turbo or centri blower!??

I have a 2013 gt and can't decide between power adders. I'm looking for about 550 to 700 hp, but want to keep the Mpg s reasonable! I plan to show the car more than drag race it. I want something that looks amazing as well as functions. Right now I'm leaning towards hellions twin turbo and running low boost. Help!

Get one of the Roush 2.3L superchargers. They look awesome and it is perfect for what you are looking for. Stage one gives 575bhp $6000 stage two 625bhp $6500 and stage three 625bhp $7000. Roush also has a 3 year 36,000 mile warrantee on his superchargers. Read up on them at American Muscle. Each kit comes with everything you need including the cold air intake.

The only thing is that I just bought the boss302 intake and like the look of that under the hood. I like the roots style but I am trying to stay away from it

Then for show looks i would go with the procharger kit. They look real nice. I saw a 5.0 at the AM show with the boss intake and the procharger system. Look super nice.

I'd highly recommend OP checking out the Beefcake special from team Beefcake racing. Hell of a deal on either a paxton or vortech centri system. Here's a link

SPECIAL - PAXTON / VORTECH TUNER KIT WITH ID1000'S

I don't think you have a say in what looks retarded or not, does this look familiar?

Smozilla has some pretty good time slips. Not to day that he is necessarily faster, but he's a pretty good driver in a pretty fast NA, bolt on, street tire car. all we really know about your car is that there has been plenty of driveability issues and that you haven't cracked 500 rwhp yet. Not being mean just repeating what YOU tell us

Turboes are safer though and don't stress the engine as much as superchargers

That is good, lol... Did you decide what you are gonna get... I'm think a Paxton... I have a Boss 302 intake on mine also...

Anyone hear anything bad with a Paxton SC, Boss 302 Intake combo?

Yeah if you have a 1968 fastback. You will never see a 100% stock newer GT win a car show. New cars need mods to win shows. Well unless you are at an all stock late model show.

I went to an MCA show. All you hear on forums is 4x4 stance of the Mustang. Yet at the show of approx 1000, 98% were at the stock ride height. And 2/3s were late models.
