Ive got a 2013 gt it is an automatic which I know many will disagree with. But anyways I was just wondering why the supercharger that ford racing makes is for manual transmissions only. Is it because the automatic cant handle that much horsepower ?

Don't actually know the answer to that but I do know its not cuz it can't handle the power. The auto is proving to be the superior of the two trannies and seems to be handling plenty of power just fine.

Iam sure it has something to do with the computer and the transmission did you try googling it?

If I had to take a WAG at it, I would say that it's because FRPP doesn't want to write tunes for the auto trans. It's more than capable of the power levels put down by the FRPP blowers. I'd be more worried about the manual grenading at 624HP than the auto.

Is there a reason you want the FRPP blower other than warranty? They're honestly not a great value otherwise.

Why is a FRPP blower not a great value?

Wayyyyy overpriced and the tunes are garbage. Other companies make better tunes while still safe.
Your telling me that if you had the money, you wouldn't buy a 13 put that baby on, full warranty, all the while being a sleeper!

No... I would get a unit that gives me a better value for my money. Warranties are overrated, never had one last very long

Having never purchased a 'new' car I will say no, because if I can afford a 13' premium GT then throw 7k at it for a blower I'd likely just put the $$$$ down on a GT500 and have the best of all of it.

I would you to find a gt 500 that is sold for less than 60+, last time I checked track pack, premium 5.0 comes with more options as well as half the price of a gt 500, if you can find one cheap enough!!

I got a sleeper that put down 560rwhp with nothing else done to the motor or exhaust for 5k while running a really safe conservative tune sent with the kit. I've seen some guys dyno the 624hp kit and let's say I didn't live up to its numbers or cost.

When I looked at a 12' premium it was $39-$40k, I'm sure the price did not drop for 13'.. Then add $7k for the blower and you are talking about a $50k GT.. 'IF' I could afford to drop that on a GT I would go after the GT500.. More power and is the fastest factory mustang-- if 'if's and buts' were candy and nut oh what a Christmas it would be...

I wouldn't buy a new Shelby regardless, used ones with 10k or less always pop up. Old people buy them, get tired of them or sell for a new one. It's like getting a new car and not worrying about the depreciation!

I'm not going to buy any new car, ever if I can help it.. There is just no value in it IMO

Hmmm I hear a lot on here that you can put less money into a gt and make is faster than a gt500. That's what I heard though so could be false

7k plus install. I'm sure ford isn't too cheap on labor. Also, I thought you gave up your factory warranty with the 624 kit? Is the engine warrantied under frpp then?

I'm not locked in on the FRPP Blower. I was just worried that there was some reason that they didn't do it for the automatic.
