Looking to super charge 2010 Mustang gt

I am researching a super charger for my 2010 Mustang GT. I am very limited on cash like most people here. I would like to get a cheap ( price not quality) super charger that I could upgrade over time. I have looked at the Vortec V3 but I would like to get6 some ideas. I am sure there are several of you guys that have bought a SC and wished you would have gone a different route. Also what do you guys think about used SC that people are selling?:?:

if you ever prefer price over quality of product when it comes to something as delicate as your car, you probably shouldnt do it, its best to wait until you have a better budget. besides whats the rush?

I just read where Ford Racing has come out with a new Intake Manifold. $549.00 - supposed to increase by 40 horses. If I ever get out from under - that's the route I'm going. 06 GT

I was told that the intake manifolds only give you about 15 rwhp because I was looking at the C&L intake
. I think the 40 rwhp is if you have cams and porter heads or maybe even supercharged.

I wasn't looking to be cheap by any means. I believe in using the best that I can afford. The reason I asked for help on this is because from my past experience there are always things the we wish we could have done a little different. The great thing about being a member of his board is that everyone is willing to help each other out so others can make smart choices from others mistakes. As far as there being in a rush. I tend to have a problem with patience whenever I am adding performance mods to the stang. I usually try to figure out how much I need to get the work done and then it motivates me to get the money saved back.

I was going down this route, but I ran into a lot of issues. Mostly being what's the point in adding 150 horses if you're just going to sit and spin tires all day and other requirements to make ti a smooth install. IE GT500 Fuel Pump, injectors, Lower Control Arms, tune etc. You can find a Blower for about 4k, but the Pump, Control arms and tune will cost you about another 1000. Then factor in labor.

So I decided to turn 4.5k into traction and efficiency.
So far Short Throw Shifter ($250)
Tune ($380)
3.73 gears ($400 installed)
Tighter suspension (springs and dampeners and Sways) - (1000 installed)
Bump Steer kit/Adjustable Panhard Bar ($300)
Upper and Lower Control arms ($250)
GT500 Front brake kit w/ cooling. ($1250)
Exhaust. ($500)
Total: 3900 + labor... (4500)

All said in done with a 93 tune + exhaust, the engine should be putting out about 335-340 hp and 350lbs of torque and all the traction and efficiency you can ask for. Hoping to put down good times and be able to rip up a track all day.

Then a supercharger

$4655 (already had a tuner) - Paxton Novi 2200SL, air-air charge cooler from Brenspeed.

It makes more power than a stock block can handle.
