When I buy my supercharger (intercooled) kit from vortech $5138. Can I swith the blower to a 5.4 with not than many modifications? I know on the five oh's the blower sits on the other side & the impeller spins the opposite way. It costs like a grand to have it reversed. I just want to know if Icould swap my blower onto a 5.4 without serious modifications? Thanks for your help! :D

I think I would ask the tech's at Vortech, they would be able to give you the best accurate awnser honestly.


Then you wouldnt be chancing blowing sumthing up or cracking a blower seal in the process!

5k for a vortech.. what all are you getting from them.. for that you can get a custom turbo with dyno tune and injectors/fuel pump upgrades etc

I would love to, but I have to pass smog! vortechsuperchargers.com They drop like $1000 every four years. The 96-98's are alot cheaper. I have to wait for them to drop.

I agree, call Vortech on this one.

For that price, I would invest in an ATI ProCharger - I just put the full system on my 02' vert for about $4500.00 and that includes a custom tune from Jerry of SuperChips.

I'm putting down 365rwhp/390ft-lbs - I will get ETs this next season when we head out to Norwalk.

Good luck and be safe.

Is it the intercooled one? How much was just the kit?

if you want to do it right i would get my own fuel system so you know the components will be good. and of course a dyno tune by some one really good like ^ did or alberto.

Yes !!! The 4.6 Vortech kit will fit the 5.4 with very minor modifications... We just got done doing that swap on a friends car using a JT trim and just had to clearance a small portion of the mounting bracket...

In my opinion:

- > for a street/strip car, with the emphasis on longevity and component quality I would go with the vortech

- > for a race car or limited street car, I would go for either an F series Pro Charger or NOVI 2000 blower.

Just a little more perspective from somebody who has worked on this particular swap. I hope that helps some.

Yeah, make sure your fuel system can handle it in the first place. Pick up the lightning maf (90mm) with some 42# injectors and an svt focus fuel pump will handle 10 lbs of boost with the aftercooler. If you want to go with more power in the future then I would STRONGLY urge you to get the cobra fuel tank setup.

I plan on doing that in a few years with a modular 5.0 shortblock to replace the 4.6 :) Then I'll rebuild my stocker for a backup or just sell it. At that point I can really crank up the boost.

My GT has plenty of power for me the way it is! I don't need any supercharger.

ditto.. vortech has awsome customer relations also, if for some reason you do happen to break one of their products they will make you a great deal.. my friend's blew up and they upgraded him from A to S trim for free they just charged him the regular price for a rebuild (it was out of warrenty)
