It mainly will boil down to what’s your budget. If you PM Sqidd on this forum he has all the info on the DOB blower set up. It uses the blower from the GT500 and that’s bullet proof blower that will put the stock motor at the recommend limit. I have a Saleen twin screw but I’m well beyond what a stock motor could survive, boost wise. It does run a bit on the warm side when I’m just driving in traffic. It does hit hard and pulls forever but due to its design it does take up a lot of room under the hood. Don't get hung up on HP #s because after 450rwhp it becomes a mute point. Without slicks I can't plant all of mine.



Forged bottom end, Ported heads, Saleen super charger, 2.8 blower pulley/15psi, Dual stage water to air intercooler, AFCO heat exchanger, battery relocated, Twin GT500 fuel pumps, T-56 trans, Aluminum flywheel, Aluminum driveshaft, 3.73 rear gears, Eaton TruTrac Diff, TA Performance rear end girdle, Racecraft suspension system, UCA, LCA, panhard bar, 15" slotted front rotors w/ 6 piston calipers, Carbon Fiber front splitter/rear diffuser, and bunch of other stuff
RWHP/RWTQ is adequate

Never thought of the gt500 charger...... I've mostly focused between the intercooled procharger and the ford racing whipple intercooled...... Im just nervous about running a supercharger stated for 550hp with stock internals anyone else run these or put alotta boosted miles on stock internals ??

Yup....a lot of the longevity has to due with the tune.

Yeah! its all about the tune! I have the Whipple 550 HO kit with stock internals. Putting down 496rwhp. The 550hp whipple is is for the crank which is not the same as rwhp. The 550 kit with a good tune will work just fine on your stock car. that is actually what the kit was designed for.

Whipple S/C 550 HO kit, FRPP 3.73 Gears, FRPP springs, Steeda Spyder 20x9 and 20x11, BMR LCAs, BMR ReLo Brackets, Front and Rear CShelby Sway bars, Hurst Billet Shifter, Custom Dyno Tune, MRT O/R H pipe, Borla Stingers

538 rwhp with Stock bottom end for about 4 years now and currently 100k kilometers on car. Running wickedly strong !!

I would go with the DOB manifold and a GT500 blower. If your "mod disease" ever got to you enough that you wanted more, you could forge the motor and run the bigger Whipple or bigger KB blower that are designed for the GT500 since that manifold is designed for all GT500 blowers for use on our motors. If you haven't experienced 450-500rwhp I would strongly suggest giving that a try first. It is a LOT of power, regardless of all these guys running 650rwhp or 1000rwhp.
