Arrow Would A Supercharger Added Into A 2002 Mustang 3.8L V6 Engine Make A Big Difference?

If I wanted to add a supercharger to a 2002 3.8L V6 engine, how much of a difference would it make? Will it make my engine roar?

Ya she will roar alright...and then burn up if you don't have the necessary mods leading up to a supercharger. I wouldn't put a supercharger in a stock engine but once you have the necessary mods it could give you an additional 50hp

Actually you can get a 11 Psi procharger kit from vmptuning. The kit is designed to be everything you need and will function properly on a stock car. of course its always nice to have some additional mods such as exhaust headers t-body and subframe connectors whenever considering a charger

Yes, a Procharger would do wonders, but you would need to remove your IMRC's. I'm in the same boat as you......

mmmm...superchargers. A procharger will actually net you more than 50 HP. A full kit will get you about 260 on 93 octane. You can run one with a stock motor if you take care of your car. I've got a Vortech with 9 psi on a completely stock motor and still purrs like a kitten.

I was going to do it this Spring, but things got a little hectic, then I bought the GT which took my funds for the SC. So now I'm idle. I want to have it done before the V6 challenge in March.

Are you still looking to get a kit? Vortech? Procharger? Paxton? I almost went with a procharger myself but I found the Vortech (almost) complete for cheaper. I like the intercooler but not a huge fan of the self oiling system. It's just something you have to keep an eye on. I want to intercool the vortech system eventually.

I'm so anal about my car that I would check my car everyday if need be. The Procharger would be my best bet, and I like the 11psi kit they sell. You need an intercooler for your Vortech......

There's got to be a joke in that statement somewhere, but I won't go there.

I use to be that way too but I haven't had much time lately. procharger does put up some good numbers for a stock engine. it would be worth it. Plus the sight of an intercooler hiding behind the front bumper is just sick. yes I do need an intercooler (among many many many other things) for my car. And you do to with a supercharger behind it!! hahaha

Well if you figure that everybody here is at least 16, then I think PG-13 would be ok:hihi:

Hey ninetysix, what kind of numbers did you put down with the supercharger?

Unfortunately I only got 203 RWHP and 270 RWTQ. That's on a stock block with no tune, 93 octane and dual exhaust as far as HP mods go. My goal is to get 300 HP with some H/C/I work and an intercooler with a tune. Supersix and VMP are on my list of shops to make that happen, Hopefully by next summer I'll have enough funds set aside to play play play!!!!

Didn't you just get some heads or something tex?
