is it worth supercharging a v6 instead of trading it in for 5.0. the only reason why I am considering is because of mpg and insurance rates. what do y'all think? a supercharged v6 would smoke a 5.0 also I believe

Personally i would trade it in.. a supercharfer simply wont make the power to smoke a modded 5.0 if youre looking for big power for your v6 look into the turbo kit from hellion. I believe they have twins for the v6. Thats just my personal opinion. I know a guy who got a turbo kit and made low 500's with 18psi... thats pretty damn good for a v6

I wanna keep my good mpg and low insurance rates tho. supercharger plus install plus prep would be around $10k right? if I bought my 2013 premium for 25k olus the supercharger that would be as much as a new premium gt but a little faster?

Porcharger 5500
Gears plus install kit 250
Driveshaft 600
Tires and rims 2k
Install 2k

Output 450-460HP

Faster than his 5.0 and pulls faster and harder due to the gears.

Tires and rims can be cut. And gears. Turbo is better in the long run, and will not affect your mpg, while a super charger will hurt mpg. But, turbo will cost more to instal. I would suggest turbo first, but super is not bad.

For those who think that their insurance won't go up, guess again. First your insurance company will ask about any ad-ons. IF YOU WANT TO PLAY STUPID, FINE, DON'T TELL THEM. THEY HAVE BEEN AT BUSINESS A LONG TIME. FAILURE OR STUPIDITY TO HIDE THIS FROM THE INSURANCE COMPANY, IT WON'T BE COVERED IF YOUR IN AN ACCIDENT.

I added the FRHP package to my car, after I drove it off the lot. Even though I could have ordered it on a car, I still got charged a couple of bucks more, because the car was lowered 1" inch. I also got quized about all the options on the car.

If you expect mods to be covered, yes. Insurance company will only cover oem parts otherwise.

Basically you get a rider to cover $x amount of aftermarket parts and pay a higher premium.

^Don't know if that is a better idea. You'll have to have a good tune. You'll have more maintenance costs involved with the FI compared to a 5.0. Plus, it won't say 5.0 on the side.;) It would be ridiculous to put all that money in it as opposed to just trading it in for a 5.0. Besides, it won't get as good gas mileage as stock or just tuned because you'll have your foot in it all the time.
