Supercharger - How soon is too soon?
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
