Supercharger - How soon is too soon?

Howdy everyone!

I just got my new 2014 DIB Mustang GT a couple weeks ago. I am planning on getting a supercharger for it (leaning towards the beefcake Paxton setup) and want to know what everyone thinks would be a good time to wait before getting one?

I currently have about 560 miles on the car. I am not worried as much about the supercharger causing problems, as that would be my fault, I am more worried about factory issues popping up that I would want to get fixed under warranty first. I have read threads about valvetrain/knock noise in the cars, but it seems to be mostly 2011 cars. Any issues worth waiting for on the 2014?

Plan is to shoot for around 600whp. Since I am in TX the paxton with the intercooler seemed like a good choice to help fight against the heat, The higher RPM power also seems like it would be a little easier on the drivertrain. I also really like the TVS with it's low end torque, but worry about the heat soak and extra torque wearing things out quicker.

One other question is what is a somewhat safe RPM to go to in these cars? I have read about windage problems with oil squirters, but heard those were removed in 2012+? Most dynos show power loss around 6800, but would be nice to have a few extra rpms to play with

Thanks!

If your goal is 600 go with the vortech, it will be alot More efficient at that power level vs the Paxton.

No oil squirter in your 14
7000 max on stock intake mani.

Thanks for the replies!

With the oil squirter/piston change in 2012+ does that affect the reliability under boost for these engines? Was reading around 600-650whp is around max safe range. Is that about right, or would that be overdoing it for a DD in a hot climate, and sticking closer to 550?

550 would be MUCH safer , anymore and you are on borrowed time just ask Rapinator he blew his at 611 and as I have said many times before even at 550 there are NO guarantees.

Yeah, shoot for 549hp, you'll be good to go.
