The best supercharger for me?

Hi guys!
First of all, i know there are many threads about S/C and i read many of them, but i couldn't find a proper answer for my need.

I have a 14 GT with the following relevant mods:
- Nitto NT555 255/35 R20
- Eibach Pro-kit springs
- BBK CAI
- Lund 93 tune

I am looking for:
1. a s/c which will provide me about 600rwhp and its installation will be as much easiest as possible.
2. a s/c which i can install its kit and don't need to add anymore mods (tires/suspension etc..)
I found 2 good options further some members recommendations in this forum:

1. Vortech supercharger kit.
2. VMP Stage 2 kit.

Which one can be better for my requirements?
Thanks!

Well #1 is, there is no such thing as "won't need more suspension and better tires" for FI. So get that from your head.

#2. What's your driving style? More in town red light to redlight? Rarely sees high rpms's?
Or
Lots of long roads where you open it up and highway use?

About #1, i meant for now - i would like to keep these mods, in the future i might upgrade but the question is - can it be enough for a start or i must replace them?

#2 - hmmm i would say i am more a town guy, less highways, although i do get on a highway from time to time

Thanks

You will OK with what you have but I would look into upper and lower control arms and a better tire.

And for your driving style for with the vmp supercharger

thanks Rapinator126, can you explain a little more, why a VMP will be better for me?
What about installation - which one is easier?

The vmp blower is a TVS style blower will make hp and tq lower in the rpm range, which is where you will be driving around in town from red light to red light.

The vortech blower is a centrifugal. Which builds power higher up in the rpms. And lacs in the tq department.

The TVS is a easier install.

Just installed the Vortech V3. The install is straightforward but time consuming. Biggest hassle by far is trimming the bumper cover to fit. Lots of cut, refit, cut some more, refit. Not hard or unexpected but, time consuming. It's a bit squeezy underhood now with all this stuff hanging off the front of the engine and the air/air IC and piping is huge so, a little jockeying for best fit is worthwhile.

Anyone with reasonable mechanical skills car do this, no big deal.

Sadly, some computer programming glitches require a visit to Ford to reflash the computer to stock but, that was my fault.

OP, what rear gear ratio do you have? I have the track pack 3.73 and heard that 1st and maybe 2d gear are useless if u SC. I'm considering moving to 3.31. Something to think about

Go with the vmp. You will love it. I'm running a dyno tune from Justin starkey of VMP right now and the car is a totally different animal vs the email tune from him. The install is very easy. Took about 10
Hours and that included changing the oil and uploading the tune. I've had mine since December. I've pulled Paxton and vortec cars as well as full bolt on 11-12 shelbys with this setup. My car is an auto, stock converter but I have full suspension. Currently in Michelin pilot sports and they're hookin at 40+mph. Msg me if u need any help Click image for larger version

Stage 2. It's designed for 600whp. Which mine made just a little over as u can see from the dyno sheet. Stage 2 comes with EVERYTHING YOU NEED and nothing you don't. Simple install I promise. The hardest part(which wasn't hard really) was grinding down a few little pieces of metal. It only took about 30 minutes because I was scared to cut too much. But seriously. If you can change a intake manifold, you can install a tvs blower. Go with stage 2.

I never get any heat soak from mine. It comes with an intercooler that had two fans on it. The intercooler pump has super good flow on it as well. Very very good for the street. Just make sure you buy some sticky tires lol.

What I love about Mustangs is the smorgasbord of options to meet any goal you have in mind. It's a DIY paradise and why I keep circling back in car ownership to the Mustang.

Nothing wrong with any of the choices presented here and, even the ones that aren't.

I liked the VMP idea but, I got this for a can't-refuse price and I loved a centri on my last 5.0 (an '88 LX).

Hi,
Just a small update:

I ordered the VMP Stage 2 kit from HyperMotive!!
They sell the kit by 200$ less than any other place, even VMP!
I highly recommend them:
VMP GEN II 2.3L Stage 2 TVS 11-14 GT/ Boss - Hypermotive

Huge thanks for your help! I will update once i get it installed
