I bought a 88 gt with a built 93 cobra motor...should dyno 300-350hp.... Im thinking about putting a supercharger on it and running 9-10 lbs. I think that will take it to about 500hp...

I found this for $1500....Is it a good deal and should i buy it?

Buy a new one. **** like that a warranty is a must. You can buy 9lb Vortechs for 2 grand.

That one is overpriced even if i comes with a tune.

Befoe you supercharge it, how built is the engine? If you have a higher compression ratio then you do not want to throw too much boost.

The dude im buying from didnt build the engine...He said the prwvious owner built it to be fast drag racing so im not sure on the compression.... Even a stock engine will hold 10lbs though correct?

Its research time buddy. Im sure there are alot of ford forums out there. Or even send an email to the tech guys at summit racing.

I just looked on ebay for reference as far as pricing goes and what my buddy just payed for one for his car. Even the used ones where way cheaper then 1600. Eaither way your gunna have to get a tune after the install.

http://mustangforums.com/forum/

Search that forum for more info they would know better then anyone on here. I know alot more about roots blowers i don't really wanna talk out my *** as far as setup goes.

I'll ask my buddy where he got his and try to get back to you.

I use to build and tune stangs all day everyday. They can handle 10psi, but I would highly recommend 8-9 psi tops. Can you find out what heads, intake (upper and lower), internals, and such. I will help if I can. Feel free to PM me with all mods.

You want a relatively low Compression ratio if you want to safely boost a motor.

Normal boost cars are below 10:1 ratios. You can boost 10:1 if wanted but 8 pounds is about the most daily wise. The 2003-2003 Cobra was a 8.5:1 compression ratio from factory. The 2003-2004 Mach was 10.5:1 ratio from factory w/o charger.

PS: LS1s are good engines, too bad the mach's would tear'em up.

This... Also don't buy a used s/c unless its on the car you're already buying. Never know how the previous person drove their vehicle or how the engine was setup.

Spend the extra money buy an Eaton or Vortech supercharger, both are good companies with great reps.

Right on. If you do buy used, go ahead and figure cost of a rebuild to be safe. I personally don't care for S/C, but Vortech makes some of the best centrifugal S/C's. Kenny Bell is great for twin screw. Each has its con though. Twin screw or top mount S/C hold alot of heat on top of the engine. Centrifugal have lag like old school turbos. I love the Kenny Bell wine though.

:cough: TURBO :cough:

To add, stay away from Powerdyne. I'm not a fan of Pro Charger either.

Prochargers IMO are the best Centrifigal chargers out. Just look at the fastest cars with centri's.

At World Street Challenge 1 in St. Louis, the Mark Micke / Jeff Dickey team set a new record for the fastest centrifugal supercharged car in the world with a mile pass of 6.25 @ 227.65 mph.
2700hp with a F3-R Procharger.

F series are nasty, for daily Vortech is a better unit. Vortech has always done more power and better powerband when I tuned on the dyno. Pro chargers P series has too much lag and not efficient.

Matter of fact, we are almost done with a 04 Mach with a built engine and a F-1 pro charger. Oh, and forgot to mention methanol injection and 150 shot on top of it.

But like I was saying, the only way to go is turbo. Here is a little buddy of mine....

Steve Petty builds tim's cars. Steve is the god of turbo cars. Notice the time, and that is in the 10.5 class, not even pro.

Dont take his word with anything less than a mouthful of salt, hes just a punk kid who doesnt even own the cars in his sig nor the systems he talks about.

So his "experience" is all lies

And no, vortechs are not good s/c's, theyre old and busted technology, eaton or modded roots ftw

10.5 just refers to the tire size.
But definitely on the turbo thing. Most of the top cars in Outlaw 10.5 are either turbo or spraying. I'm not sure if there are any supercharged cars that are competitive in that class.
Mike Murillo is my favorite in the 10.5 class

Im going to make a thread for it as i did my other mustang.... Have new paint, new door handles, and a new shifter knob on the way....

Speaking of superchargers, after my boyfriend and i modified our car with a new custom car grill (http://www.streetbeatcustoms.com/customgrills.html), we were thinking about a supercharger. I was online this morning checking out some different products when I saw an electric supercharger. It was significantly cheaper than your conventional supercharger AND it said you'd increase MPG. Is this believable or a scam? Because if it worked, and gave our car torque AND less time at the pumps, I AM IN!!

Why, with a quality rotating assembly and built correctly a stock block should be just fine.

What is the weak point to there blocks?

2 bolt mains? I have yet to crack? and were making some serious power. 1000+

Anything over 400 is starting to push the "safe" limits.

Wrong, the block is the weak point. The stock rotating assembly isn't all that bad.

1000+ hp on a stock block? Hahahahahaahahahhahah, clearly you have no effin clue what you're talking about.
