HP bang for Buck

Hey all, looking for suggestions and personal experience on best mods for RWHP improvement. The total dollar isnt as important to me as how much Im paying per HP. Obviously there is the Supercharging option ($6800 for 200 HP gain) and the Hellion Twin Turbo ($11,800 after said and done for 300 HP gain without additional mods) but honestly Id be happy with 600 flat thru the curve. What combinations of mods do any of you suggest for my 2015 GT with performance pack that can get me there for under $6800? This is my first Mustang.. unfamiliar territory.

Honestly if you want 600 the easy way a supercharger would be the ticket

Thats what I figured. Anyone know if a self install of the Roush supercharger negates the warranty? The only info I could find points to the warranty being valid as long as you send the computer to Roush to be flashed... but that doesnt seem right to me. I hate to shell out extra cash for an install I can do myself in a day... but also dont want to thrash my warranty right out of the gate.

Not a fan of nitro... blown too many motors over the years. Maybe I suck at it. I know the Coyote is stout and Ive heard 100-150shot is safe depending on when you choose to pull the trigger.. but as Ive stated... Im weary from past experiences. Beyond that, Im looking more for steady power. Thats why Im shying a little from a turbo and leaning toward supercharger. But I just wondered if there were some other mods that would yield decent gains... headers, catback, cold air intake, new tune, etc... and what I could epect that gain to be.. ballparking of course... each brand claims something different so I was looking for real world experiences to guide my purchases.

Op in all honesty if you want a supercharger check out the beefcake special. It will give you everything you need for your price range.

Or go nitrous, my choice

I will go out on a limb and say with bolt on's and a Turn you can reach 500 HP but that is about the best could expect. You will need some sort of forced induction or juice to get the 600 HP you are looking for. I am at 440 HP with larger injectors, CAI, Cat back exhaust and Tune. Full exhaust add another 20+ or HP, Boss or Ford racing intake and a 90mm TB is good for another 30+ HP and an aggressive Tune should get you to 500 +HP.

So no other mod would be needed for a supercharger? The extra power wouldn't risk tearing anything else up on the car?

You underestimate the coyote...
The most I've seen on motor alone no power adders, on E85 complete full bolt ons built engine, putting 500-550 at the wheels...

Engine would be fine, you would want some suspension mods and better tires to put it down obviously. The beefcake packages come with everything you need

I agree with nate, engine would be fine, looks like you have the performance package already but you can get better results from aftermarket suspension mods! And don't forget the Brakes!

thanks fo the feedback

Thanks for the feedback. Lots to consider. Eibach springs and Magnaflow catback en route. Still finding my way around headers, not sure what the best option is there. But none of these would affect my ability to supercharge her if I decide to go that route. Anybody have any GOOD things to say about Bama Tuning? Theres a COI/Bama Tune package I saw for around $800 with free lifetime tunes... in the event I never "finish" modding...but Ive heard a bunch of bad on Bama from reviews. Only good Ive heard is from Bama themselves. Lol

The Roush supercharger was a Ford/Roush collaborative designed specifically for the Coyote powerplant. There are minimum modifications during the install, but theres a couple areas that require cutting and grinding and some hoses have to be shortened. But it was designed to not harm your engine. In fact, you retain factory warranty after install (still some question about that warranty from a self install)

I know absolutely zip about tuning. My interest in Bama stems from the idea that every time I add a new mod, they tune with that mod in mind. And if thats included with the COI for under $800, seemed like a worthwile endeavor... assuming Bama doesnt suck like all of their reviewers seem to agree they do.

Most tuners have free revisions to an extent.

True about the VMP kit; however, it isn't that difficult to depin a few connectors and plug those wires into a different harness (bap is still a plus). The hardest part is the soldering which you have to do on both. For the money though, the vmp is better because of that time saved as well as their improved inlet elbow. Do yourself a favor and set aside money for anything breaking (not that it will, but it's always good to be prepared).

Warranty can be bought from Roush 3-36 for a cool grand but has to be a Ford or ASE do the work.

Why the larger injectors? Who and what kind of tune. Which CAI and finally where did the 440 hp figure come from or is that an estimate.

The “base model” 2014 Saleen Mustang White Label is powered by the same 5.0L V8 as the current Mustang GT but thanks to 39lb fuel injectors, a high performance air intake, a high performance exhaust system with high flow mufflers and a high performance engine calibration this 302 cubic inch V8 packs 440 horsepower and 400lb-ft of torque. This drivetrain is finished off by a standard 6-speed manual transmission (6-speed automatic is optional) with 3.55 gears. Improving the handling of the Saleen Mustang White Label is a Saleen S4 suspension package with special springs, bushings and links, a strut tower brace, strut tower brace plates and 5 spoke 20” alloy wheels wrapped in high performance rubber

^ Lmfao........:sly: those extra 6lb of injector made the difference there

It's a dumb *** selling point they use to drag people in like yourself. Also "440" is at the crank. And the " high performance " tune is anything but.

Don't be so gullible
