Supercharger on the cheap for 05 gt? used?

I keep spending $400 here and $300 there for 10-20hp gains.

As a younger person without tools I cannot afford to get a new $5000 supercharger and pay another $800 to get it put on.

Without being a tool.. I really do not want to learn how to put one of these on as this is a daily driver and I cant afford to **** up..

Any way in the world I can get a decent supercharger put on my automatic that will net me 450-500hp for under $3500 installed? Or am I dreaming?


As always thank you for answering my somewhat retarded questions. Coming from the jeep world with little engine skills this is an eye opener..

Thank YoU all for your help so far!!

Sqidd makes an intake that can allow you to put a GT500 supercharger onto an 05-09 Mustang. I think it's about $1750 for the intake, plus about maybe $600 for the GT500 supercharger?

I think he said you'd get around 450 HP.

When I get out of high school and into college, I'm going to start saving up money for this intake/supercharger and do it with someone who can help me. It'll teach you a lot, but make sure you know somebody who knows what they're doing!

Would putting a sc on a auto 05gt with 115k miles be stupid? I very rarely would put the pedal to the floor.. Maybe once a week to scare ricers. I have heard people say it cuts engine life in half while others comment on 175k miles with no issues?

Is the intake and gt500 sc all I will need?

Thank you!

Who knows. Not all miles are the same. If you are slap strapped for cash it probably would be a bad move to do it. If you can afford to have an engine go out then go for it. Not saying it will go out, but you can ask anybody on here that your always playing with fire once you slap the blower on. Some are lucky and some aren't and from what I have seen I believe way more are lucky than not. I garuntee you if you were to strap a blower on 100 brand new 4.6 3v's all putting out the same power, let's say 500rwhp, and running the same conditions for 6000rpms there would likely be failures on some and not on others. You never know which one you will be so it's good to atleast have the reality check, yes, it's possible my engine will blow. On the flipside, my car had 45k miles on it when I bought it off ebay and I'm fairly certain they weren't easy miles considering my rearend had a howling noise, my clutch was worn to death and the type of LCA's on the back said they were wanting to hook up with traction and didn't care about noise. There were other mods aswell. That being said, I didn' give care and was secretly hoping it would blow so I could forge my engine. Gotta have an excuse for the wife. Anyway, 20k miles later at 430rwhp and some VERY spirited driving and the engine hasn't let out a peep of an odd sound. The difference in the car before the blower and after is WELL worth the money IMO.

If you don't wanna spend more then 3,000 then id just do long tubes, gears, and maybe some cam's and call it a day. Maybe some suspension if you wanted a bit more

I could see spending $4000 but I would prefer under $3500 for the SC and the rest as insurance for stuff I dont need yet.
Also want to buy some new tires/wheels for the stang if I do this.

Just cant see spending $3000 for those upgrades and getting 40-50hp gain :/

I will save up and go from there. The previous owner did NOT take care of this car and drove it to hell and back. It also had a grinding scream in the rear but I got that taken care of.

I paid $6500 for my 2005gt with 100k miles on her so.. I am pretty happy and once I get a SC on it.. even if I get a new engine I will not be in the hole value wise.

Thanks!!

sqidd's mainifold plus all the other parts will total around $3,500 if you install it all yourself ; I think that is the best bet for that cost ballpark

you can also be on the lookout for used kits, but I would be a little leary of that since you won't know what condition it is in and it is likely that the parts won't all be there

If you go with a Vortech or Paxton centrifugal supercharger kit, you may be able to stay in your price range. But personally, I would want a positive displacement supercharger on my car.

Anyone that has the tools and HAS done this before send me a pm. Willing to come to you.

Thanks for all the help!!! Love this forum.

And when I say pay you for your time I mean I would help to get the process going faster and I can learn something along the way.
