Trying to decide on a supercharger for my 2005 Mustang GT
I think I'm probably going to pull the trigger in the fall, but I wanna start planning what I want now. Lord knows it took me long enough to pull the trigger on my CAI :-P.
Anyway, I've been going back and forth between Saleen and Whipple. I guess let me start by letting you know my shorterm and longterm plans for my car.
After I S/C this car, it will become my weekend car, so it won't be a daily driver anymore. It probably will end up seeing the track a couple times(so I can see what it can do), but not as much as some people do, it will mostly stick to the streets.
I don't want to rebuild the engine right away cuz I plan on buying a house soon, so funds will be non-existant and I want the S/C to be able to run well on a stock motor without much maintenance(I know these two were built well to run on stock since FRPP uses Whipple, and Saleen well builds these things to run on stock with the exception of the S287E). But as the motor goes, I'll eventually want a rebuild and put out some nice HP, but not to the point where it isn't streetable or fun to drive outside the track anymore.
I here the Saleen can run about a max of 13/14psi boost...right? Anyone know how much HP that puts out? I'm sure with the Whipple sky is the limit on power(more or less). But I'm not sure if I'll ever want to go as high as the Whipple is capable of. Let me know what you guys think is the best option for me.
I think after the engine rebuild down the road I wouldn't want to go any higher than 600. So probably in the 500s.
