Roush Stage1, Stage2, or FR Whipple

Hey guys, I'm going to pull the trigger on a supercharger but need a little advice before doing so.

I'm debating between the Roush Stage 1 (575hp), Stage 2 (625hp), or the Ford Racing Whipple (525hp). My concern is that if I get the Stage 2, will I have a problem with traction. I want the power but I'm not willing to sacrifice drivability. The car is my daily driver. Also, I don't know much about the Ford Racing Whipple but it is almost $1000 more and less power. Is it worth the extra $?

My current setup is:
-3:73 with Brembos
-Koni Oranges
-Steeda Ultralites
-Steeda lcas with BMR relo bracket
-Whiteline panhard
No track, occasional drag

(Not interested in Paxton or Vortech so don't bother mentioning it)

Thanks in advance!

With the FR 625, you get a 5 year warranty from eaton (the supercharger manufacturer)

Yeah Roush has a warranty as well. Warranty isn't make or break for me.

Actually the whipple, when installed by ford, gets the remainder of ur warrantee but only the 525 kit. Almost pulled that trigger when I purchased my stang. Too much $ for 525 hp..a gain of only ~105.
My personal preference is the Whipple. Buddy has one on his, and it is awesome.
Probably can't go wrong with either one though!
As far a traction, good luck. If ur not worried about the warrantee, I would opt for the 625-675 kits. And, switch to DRs!

Rush only has a 3 year warranty. Since you aren't really concerned with warranty, go with the Roush 675 kit.

Couldn't agree more. And get the tune right from VMP as well.
