Default Vortech V3 supercharger on GT40x setup

If added a V3 supercharger to my aluminum GT40x heads and all the bolt ons,
how much Hp do you think I'd be at using the 5-6 psi of boost?

Seems like a good budget SC system. I can't spend big bucks as the V3 would be expensive enough. Look like install is not bad either.

5-6 psi is probably only going to add another 50-75hp at the flywheel...

your money would be much better spent with a Trick Flow top end kit, or selling the motor you have and replacing it with a nice stroker motor...really you'll just be putting alot of hot air into the engine...let me tell you that when I first got my Kenne Bell on I thought "yeah, it will just go like hell and I'll click off 10 second 1/4s!)...in reality, it ran like poop at about 6-8 psi...enter one tuner and about $3000 more for fuel system upgrades and lots of custom tuning, now it runs like you'd expect...
The great thing about the small block is that it can make the kinda power you'd like to have without boost, a mod motor really can't...the key is the heads, intake and cam..what you have is really restrictive and just adding boost would net you about nothing except a lighter wallet...rethink the whole project, don't just throw money at it
After I went through the whole "boost game" with my Cobra, I realized a killer 427 stroker could be built to produce way more power than what I spent on the blower/install/mods alone for the Cobra
GT Stang: 427 stroker(all new, 4bolt block, forged everything): 600hp: $8000
Cobra: KB/mods/install tuning(stock motor): 400 hp, $8000
Now do you still want that vortech?

Just curious if going with the Vortech what problems I'd run into?

If I added the 50-75 Hp that would realistically be my target. I don't need to fastest car on the street and adding more than this would mean beefier axles, etc, etc.

Having 325-350 Hp to the wheels would be perfert for my goals and Vortech seems like may be cheapest way.

My underhood is nice and new and shiny so a top-end swap ain't gonna happen. It just got finished in August and I wanted Ford heads.
