hmmmm . . . actually, now that you mention it, the OP's V6 might have smaller rotors . . . . in that case maybe an upgrade to the larger GT rotors and pads and/or some better pads such as Hawk probably would be a good idea

Some of the other members on this site have claimed they've run their supercharged V6 up over 200k miles when the supercharger was installed at around 50k miles. Just don't overdo the boost, less than 12 psi is a good number. Just don't push the car with too many cold starts and nothing should break. The rear differential is a piece that should be looked at for replacement when boosting your power as it will simply not last.

That's easy. Just swap the original 7.5" axle with the 8.8" axle from a GT.

I believe it with good maintenance and say around 10psi or a little less and a conservative Tune. The fact that with Headers in combination with a SC, takes stress off the stress. A good breather catch can set up to manage crankcase pressure helps. My friend has a 2007 F150 2V Roush and he has never been polite to the power train since it's delivery in 2007. It has over 128,000 miles. I know this is a completely different platform to compare, but my point is this. A SC or Turbo does not equal premature death of your engine.

I just dont know if its worth the money you know? for about 10k i could just get a GT. Plus resale with a supercharger will have less appeal in my area. not many car people in howard county maryland

Like I said before, just going for a newer or larger engine model is always an option.
However if that's your chosen path, just know your going to have to start all over again mod wise.
You'll find yourself upgrading parts you've already once covered with the V6.
In some aspects essentially spending money on the similar upgrades, but for a new car.

Id love a 2013-2014 Gt, But I love the way the s197 light grey ext with red seats looks. Not sure. 20-13-2014's seem to techy to me. I like the simple retro look of my 06
