Good superchargers?

Ok, I won't be doing this for a while, but I want to know what superchargers would be good for an auto 2013 GT. I've looked at the Ford Racing 525 HP, and the Roush 575 HP supercharger.

Depends on what kind of supercharger you want. The Ford Racing and Roush are both TVS superchargers. There's also twin screw and centrifugal superchargers. If you were to choose just between the two, I'd go with the one of the Roush superchargers. I believe the Ford Racing superchargers are just a more expensive, Ford Racing branded Roush supercharger kit.

What are the difference's between the supercharger types? Also, please don't one recommend one that has to stick out of the top of the hood. I don't like those on newer cars, 70's muscle cars is where I think those belong.

Here's a great article that can describe the difference between superchargers in better wording. As for the best one? That depends on what you plan on using your car for whether it be just a daily driver to enjoy, drag racing, etc.

It would be a daily driver, drag strip once and a while, and 1/4 mile street drag race sometimes

Roush TVS is a great blower, one of the big reasons I decided to go direct with Roush. Its a great supercharger system, lasts a very long time, looks OEM, makes great HP and TQ and is a blast to drive.

Is the TVS good for a road track or would a centrifugal be better? I'm leaning towards the centrifugal or turbo BC I want to keep my manifold

Centrifugal isn't ideal for a road track. Not to say people dont use it for that. The tvs is a better choice for that.

Define road track, I'm not gonna be actually racing competitively, just streets. once and a while, like if I see a Slowmaro. I think a TVS is probably as good though.

Turbo would be terrible for the road course, think of lag, spike, downshifting. Not a turbo thing. In all honesty, I prefer an N/A Boss on the track. With a great suspension setup I've been able to kill cars making 200 HP more than me, a blown Mustang isn't very fast or making much HP after about 5 minutes on a track however, I've talked to Justin Starkey over at VMP about his S/C system. He put one on his 12 Boss and swears by it but I'm still skeptical.

I'd love to get a Boss, but I've never driven a manual before, and there were none available in the area, also, a 6 speed sounds kinda tough to get use to at 1st

I'd suggest getting a PD blower and using a VMP tune. Justin knows quite a bit on these blowers and can work a lot of magic into the automatics. I'll shoot you a pm.

Lol It's on différent than a 5 or 4 or 3 speed. The hardest part for beginners is engaging the first gear from a stop or reversing, but honestly it's not that hard. I'd never driven standard when I bought my first standard mustang. Drove it home and stalled a whole bunch of times. By the third day I was doing just fine and now it's automatic to me. I don't think about anything. It was fun learning though. I miss being all nervous lol

indeed, that is why ill be going with the VMP tvs blower. Justin seems to no his stuff when it comes to the tunes with blown mustangs. Curious though, is there THAT big of a difference between the VMP tvs and the roush tvs besides the VMP being ported?

Look into the rear end brace on clearance on AM right now. It works wonders

Also, the ford racing supercharger is a twin screw... Not a roots blower like the tvs. Just to clear that up

The Swarr bar is what I'm talking about. And for the record anything from hotchkis is legit! I have their entire set-up on my lightning and it handles corners wayyy better than my mustang does. Even with 15s and Hoosiers in the back lol

I went with vmp,they did the install and justin did the dyno tune. They use 2 10" spal fans on the heat exchanger so even in traffic with the a/c on you will never run hot.

Will the subframe connectors help that much in the turns? I might just pull the trigger on both of those

I can't speak very much for the subframe connectors on the mustang but they help on my brick of a truck. I would assume they help but the Swarr bar is a good product and with the Swarr bar and a set of billet LCA's I don't even get wheel hop in wet weather. I have the ford racing adjustable suspension and with the shocks/struts, springs, and STB I think it's a pretty damn good ride. Like rails in the corners, but like I said lightning is better. But the lightning is 4 linked lol so that don't count.

Until you shift again. If you're racing and always above 5k rpms something's messed up.
