How many blown 5.0's blow up? What's the lifespan for a supercharged motor?

If properly tunes you shouldn't have any issues but a lot depends on how much boost and how far you push the engine. If done conservatively you shouldn't have any issues for a long time but if you push it then that's a risk you take and part of the game. Gotta pay to play.

I've seen too many YouTube videos of Mustangs blowing their motors. I can't see taking the risk. But then I'm too old anyway.

I mean there are so many factors to consider if you have a reputable shop doing it or know what your doing you should be fine. But that's part of the game risk of something breaking is going to increase drastically when you add 50% power to what it came with from the factory not only engine but other parts as well.
