I'm sorry, but that really makes no sense. Chip? Chip put out
horsepower? Okay I reeally don't quite understand, but if you have a
Mustang with a blower on it and you are asking how to make the computer
put out more power, you really REALLY need to get some education on what
you have and how it works, as a car with a blown V8 can be a dagerous
and very expensive situation if you do not know how to keep it tuned or
can not afford to pay someone to do it. You can blow head gaskets and
melt pistons and stuff...

Re: MustangGT Supercharge

I didn't quite understand the question myself.

I have a 2000 GT (yellow convert, a beauty) and am interested
supercharging it. Does anyone have experience with this? I'd
like to make an informed decision and finding good info on the
whole process is hard to come by.

What kind of increase in HP could I expect? Any cooling issues
with a supercharger? Do the kits adjust the engine computer?

Thanks in advance!

Re: MustangGT Supercharge

I Have a 2002GT Vortech S-Trim, No intercooler. Seeing about 10lbs
boost at redline.
Dynoed 370 RWHP and 360 RW Torque.
Assuming 15% losses that is about 370/.85 = 435HP at the flywheel
about 175HP gain over the stock 260.
No cooling problems at all. Drives like stock untill you get on it.
Car has a custom burned SCT Chip to take care of the computer.

Good Luck

Rob

Re: MustangGT Supercharge

Information is in abundance all you have to do is look. Go to meets, shows
etc, ask questions in on-line forums - who dyno tunes in "insert your
area"...then talk to the tuners/installers.

To answer your question,
Vortech SQ - non-intercooled, tune on 94 octane 369 RWHP - 366 TQ @9-9.5lb
boost.
(395RWHP - 388 TQ when running the Snow Performance water/methanol
injection)
This is a daily driver - 24/365 so the tune isn't radical. Any more boost
and I'd have to "build" the engine to handle the stress and maintain the
daily driver aspect.
Shop recommended a 180 thermostat.
Pretty sure all kits come with a chip.. opted for the SCT multi instead.

G'luck.

This is a very common upgrade. There are probably 4-5 differant companies that
make superchargers, and 1-2 companies that make turbocharger kits for your car. Go
to your local book store and check out the magazine rack. That's a good place to
start. Go to your local cruise night and start asking around. Most people with
tricked out Fords can help guide you, and there's nothing better than one on one
communication. Depending on where you live, there's probably a shop not too far away
that does this for a living. If you're anywhere near Denver, I can help with that.

Re: MustangGT Supercharge- many thanks for the posting Jafo

Thanks for the info. I'm really torn between getting one of those 2006
Shelby GT models. Car and Drive guesses around 475hp versus keeping
the 2000 GT ragtop and supercharging that. Of course one is a lot
cheaper than the other. Guess I just have to wait until I can test drive
one of those Shelby's.

All the best, Bill
