You could take a stroll over to Vortech's website and have a look at their 700+ Mustang. I dont think it would have any trouble with your boyfriends car. A good supercharger set-up on your Mustang would get it in there. Most all companies will tell you what you do or dont need if you plan on installing one. A lot of things will change with it. Exhaust, fuel pump and regulator, headers etc. Plan your suspension upgrade ie: tires and wheels with the supercharger in mind. You might get more replies if you move into like Windsor tech or general tech. I know this is where it should be. But more people browse Windsor and General that have these cars. I dont know to much about the SRT's, but I wouldnt think it would be to big a jump for a Pony to get it. Its another run of the mill 4 banger woo hoo! Irregardless of what they say, your car could easily be transformed into a regular SRT nightmare. A properly outfitted Saleen or Cobra could easily outperform these kind of cars in every category.
Here's a little pick of my baby, it eats SRT-4's, even stage 3's.
I put a Seanhylan Motrorsports Forged 5.0 Modular Stroker kit in it, A Kenne Bell 1.7 Supercharger, Crower Stage 2 Blower Cams, Mac Straight Shot CAI, 3.73 Gears, Mac Longtubes, Mac prochamber, Magnaflow Magnapack Catback, Pro 5.0 Shifter, SCT Livewire, 90mm SCT BA2400 MAF, and a bunch of other cosmetic junk. Your best performance mod to start with is gears. If you have an auto go with 4.10's, if you have a 5 speed go with 3.73's. That is the best mod you can do to wake up a stang next to a supercharger or turbo or Nitrous. A bigger MAF will do nothing for you until you get a blower or turbo on your car. Exhaust helps as well but longtubes are a real pain in butt on our cars to install, its about 10-12 hours of install time.

Your gear choice of 3.73 is good for the KB. If you decide to go Vortech or something else, you could go with a lower gear...4.10 for example. The instant power from a twin screw power will blast the tires with a 4.10 gear. The 90mm throttle body isn't going to help, you won't need that until you push huge HP numbers.
With the mods you have now I would also consider:
- Flowmasters tend to build too much back pressure for the Modular motors. Experts (at least according to experts). Free flowing systems like Bassani appear to make better power
- Weight reduction
- 50 shot of NOS
Once you get the KB installed the stock internals of your motor will handle 400hp to possible 450 at a high limit. Beyond that you will need forged internals to handle extra power and high boost. A dyno tune after blower install is a must.
What is your ultimate goal for the car...besides dusting your boyfriend...roll racing, dig racing, what qtr mile times, etc.
