okay guys so I finally decided to pull the trigger and go on with my build on my car. I purchased a Paxton kit early this week and should be receiving the parts within the next week or 2. I have a few questions..

The kit will contain the Paxton 2200 sl with a 3.8 pulley, intercooler and all the piping, Id 1050x injectors, a vmp boost a pump, maxflow race bov, t bolt clamp upgrade, jlt performance cold air intake, ngk plugs (not sure what plugs yet), all the hardware and brackets needed obviously. It will have everything needed short of a tune.

my car already has: mmr opg and cs, longtubes, offroad h, 18 intake, rst clutch, stainless clutch line and all the supporting mods needed. car has about 57,500 miles on it now on stock bottom end and trans it's an '11 gt

fuel: I'll be on the stock pump with a vmp boost a pump and Id 1050x's which should be good for what I'm doing. I'd love to run e85 but I onlyhave 1 station in my area that has it so I'll be on pump 93. how trust worthy are these boost a pumps should I worry about it at all? Also these engine have high compression so running 93 with boost makes me wonder but I know lots of people do it. How safe is it running pump on these cars with boost on the stock bottom? keep in mind it has 57k

Tuning: I'm now tuned with vmp and the tune is pretty awesome but I would like to get tuned on a dyno locally so how do I go about getting a start up tune?

plugs: I cant find exactly what most people are running for plugs on boost with 93 octane

oil: what oil do you boosted guys run in the stock motor?

do you guys think I have what I need to safely reach my goal and ride on it for a long time? my goal is to reach 580-600 whp reliably without having to worry about much and keeping my stock bottom end happy for as long as I can. lmk what you guys all think this is my first time boosting a car so sorry about all the questions but thanks for any useful replies!

Forget getting a tune on a dyno as it's not necessary. If you like your VMP tune have Justin tune your new setup.

+1 on VMP - No need to bring an unknown quality into play here. Tuning on a boosted machine is not something to playing around with.

Yes on VMP, Justin is an expert on boosted Mustangs. Do change horses now...

thank you I'll contact vmp when I get closer to install. Not sure how I'd get a start up tune if I get it dyno tuned anyway. What oil do you guys recommend for a boosted application

Mine is a Track-Pack model. I use the recommended 5w-50 full synthetic. I would use the same if I went boosted.

mines a brembo car with 3.73's but still recommends 5w-20. I feel I should add something a little heavier even if I were to stay na

I think the recommendation has more to do with anticipated driving style than actual equipment on the original build. Either way, there's no way I would run a 20w lawn mower oil in my Coyote. 30 to 40, perhaps..

lol I may up it to 30 weight full synthetic. I'm using motocraft synthetic blend currently and motocraft filter

Justin can email you a start up tune. Everyone has an opinion on oil but a good 5w-30 should suffice.
