Does anyone daily drive a boosted car?

I'm planning on a TVS or a Procharger to a 14 GT and was wondering if anyone daily drives their boosted car because that's what I'm planning to do.

What would be the pros and cons of daily driving a boosted car?

It all depends on how good your tune is and also how much psi you are running. First off your going to eventually want to forge your internals if you plan on upping the boost or if you want your engine to last. I currently have a 2013 gt with a D1SC procharger. I am only running around 10 psi which is all I would do until I get my engine forged. As for a daily driver it almost feels the same as stock until you hit around 3500RPM and then it halls ***. Don't get me wrong your gas mileage is going to suck but other than that the power is there when you need it and still feels good as a daily driver.

Check out the procharger I-1. It is a low boost system.

Thanks for the response. A few questions for you.

1. How much did you spend total for that D1SC procharger kit?

2. How much of a hit in MPG are you talking about? I get about 26 HWY mpg. 19-20 AVG

3. Mine is a 14 GT Auto. Yours?

3.

The reason I went with the D1SC was because I eventually want to have 800rwhp. The D1 will give me that not like the P1SC. Now if you get the D1 head unit they only sell tuner kits which means you have to buy injectors BAP and a tune. This is what I have on my car now 1000cc injectors, vortech BAP, 0 heat range spark plugs, boost gauge, ati super damper( only needed if you get the 12 rib pulley), kooks long tube headers. They kit I do believe I paid around 7000 for the stage 2 inter cooler D1SC head unit tuner kit. Then I had to buy separate the injectors, ati damper, BAP and spark plugs; which was around another 1700 more. But the way I am setting up my car is for more hp in the future. Depends on what your looking for you could go with the P1SC complete kit for I think around 6200 but then you can only push so much hp out of that head unit and you would get a different inter cooler along with smaller injectors ect. If you want to go the cheap but still good route I would go with vortech they also have cheap and good blowers and Paxton. Hope this helps.

With that MPG if I baby it and take it slow around 16-19 but that's a lot of coasting in neutral. This also depends on your tune.

I have a 2013 boss Mustang with a VMP tvs supercharger no issues at all instant power 10 pounds of boost 13 miles to the gallon in the city and 23 on the highway very low maintenance change the belt about once a year and change the oil every hundred thousand miles comes as a complete kit for less than $8000 installed. Just over 600 rwhp and 525 pounds of torque.

Oil change every 100 THOUSAND! Sorry, but I call BS on that. 10 thousand miles would probably be close to the max interval between oil changes.

Dam 8k. You could have got a f1a or f1c for 7k. The d1 will make 800 bimut will be maxed out. If you want to go centri the best bet is paxton the paxton head unit will get you to 1000 ir you want it

Also if I break a belt I only lose my air conditioning I'm not stranded like with the Paxton or Pro charger

2014 auto
had the dealer install a Roush phase 1 package and 3.73 gears and complete Roush lower control arm and anti hop kit.. Daily driven to work by my wife, it still gets 17.5 mpg. the car is a monster in first gear and will destroy the 275/40/19 max summer Pirelli's . its still capable of running 130 + in 4 th gear. bolt on a set of svt drag rims and tires and hang on. got 2 years of Roush warranty left ant then comes the VMP tune, may be sooner lol. also there is no difference in the daily driving as long as your foot is out of the throttle. phase 1 has no whine at all. cruise rpm is at 2000 rpm = 60 mph . has a little more road noise with the 3.73 .......but very impressive. as it sits I have 8500.00 invested.
