Best Superchargers for '13 GT

Looking to satisfy my need to speed , wanted to get some opinions on Superchargers for my 13' GT, I was debating between the Roush Stage 2, Procharger Stage 2 or Vortech. Looking to see if anyone has any of these and what your opinions are and what help made your decision. If there are others I should also consider, shoot away, right now I'm in the research stage and looking to purchase in a few months.

Thanks guys

I would look at the VMP kits. They are in Florida and use a Roush TVS 2300 blower with an improved inlet, better heat exchanger, and a high quality tune. The Roush tune is unacceptable quite honestly.

This is a huge debate, but for a street car the TVS 2300 blowers are hard to beat. The part throttle boost makes the car really fun in all driving conditions.

I would love to hear some guys with each type chime in. I am pretty set on the Vortech. I just worry that with the instant torque of the twin screws that I am going to have even more issue catching traction. I guess I just seem (no formal data) to see guys with centrifugal do better at the strip and my thoughts are that it allows them that split second to get off the line before the boost really starts to kick in. Plus, don't the centrifugal allow you to get higher boost levels for the money if you ever decide to strengthen your internals? I see guys with 650-725 rwhp on the Vortech a few times.

TVS blowers don't hit all of a sudden when accelerating, unless you're above around 3500 RPM, and floor it. If you're in first or second, you're probably going to loose traction.(depending on tires) You have to learn how to use the power.

That being said, I've never driven a 5.0 with a centri. I do love my Edelbrock. Stays cool, has enough power for me right now. I can get another 100 hp in the future with a smaller pulley and a new tune, and has more torque than other TVS's do to it's design.

If I wasn't concerned with Calif. smog laws, and a motor warranty, I would have gone with the VMP.

Positive displacement blowers are a big air pump and make boost from idle. Centrifugal type blowers actually compress the air and tend to make boost at higher rpms, even more peak than positive displacement. Positive displacement are great for the road, nice linear power. Ford and Roush tunes can be improved. On Ford kit, dyno tune increased peak power by 35hp, but more importantly was the increase in power at low rpms and driveability.

You can read this article we did on the Vortech ... With power that does not fade, superior efficiency, and full 50 state emission compliance, the Vortech Centrifugal Supercharger earns the Steeda Seal of Approval as being our preferred supercharger of choice.

And your point is? Everybody starts somewhere and the fact they are still here and producing high quality parts merits some consideration of their opinion.

....and I have a V3 Vortech on my car. It's my second centri ( had one in the "good old days" on my 88 5.0 LX) The smiles per gallon here are hard to beat.

If your car is a DD and sees more in town commute a tvs will be the best bet. A centrifugal is less than desirable on the coyotes unless you use it.

They are all opinions ... just trying to give the OP some insight as to why we chose the Vortech & also offered him an opportunity to come down & check our cars out.

Yes, Steve is still here ... he is a awesome!

I have the Roush phase 2 supercharger kit in my ‘14 GT which is an automatic and a daily driver. They can be re-tuned for more power as in this example:

Thanks guys, good info. I'm definitely interested in seeing in person what a Vortech looks and runs like. This is my DD. Are there any other modifications needed before installing a SC?

Instead of subscribing to this thread, you guys that want FI should be searching this forum as well as the others and googling any questions you have so you can make your own informed decision.

All this stuff has been covered so many times you'll be getting dumbed down info and answers. Seriously....do your own research and decide for yourself. You'll thank me later.

Mainly bc of cost vs paxton or vortech, and the air intake inlet.
Also to get the power of the paxton you have to upgrade head unit.

Ahhh ok. Due to the amount of tuning that seems to be needed and a few other things like install complexity and long term reliability etc I'm leaning more towards a Paxton over anything else. How would that setup work bolted onto an auto with a boss intake and a 5c converter long tubes full off road exhaust etc ? Is AED any good at tuning for FI anyone know? That's who I use now. I imagine probably not a good idea to spin a stock engine to 7500-7600 rpm under boost?

AED would be a great choice. And you can spin it to 7500-7600 plenty of people do, if you want some extra insurance some oil pump gears would ease your mind.
As far as the converter for your choice I'm not a 100% as I have not messed with one personally so I'm not going to answer that question.

Not too familiar with the oil pump gear issue. Seen it mentioned a little hear and there but that's it. What's the benefits of replacing them?

The stock ones are weak. And can fall apart in pieces and destroy your motor. It happens at constant high rpms. And adding power on top of that makes then even more prone

Sounds like more of an issue for auto x cars? Drag racing see enough rpm to cause this?

Tacking it off the rev limiter for too long will cause them
