You know what I think would be neat… a supercharger that gets its air from a mach1 type hood scoop… you look at some of the designes for air intake and you think they can’t work well…
My favorite “sarcasm” is the one that pulls air from the back of the engine block…. Right above the exhaust headers… I would think mine are cherry freakin red at about 1000 feet of WOT… Kenne Bell’s air intake is about three feet long and it looks like you have to remove the front bumper to change the air filter… I like the mach1 hood scoop type of induction idea, like the 671 blowers on the older hotrods… ? Does anyone make this for any type of Supercharger that will work on a 2011+ 5.0 Mustang?

I don't speak often but when I do, I don't have clue what I am talking about. I just repeat things that I once heard and do not repeat them correctly... My doctor told me it was an ID 10 T problem and it was incurable.
So when I reply to a post or add to a thread I just find the words elsewhere and copy and paste.

Been close to 5 years, 16k miles and still could not be happier. I did change from the stock vortech tune to a brenspeed tune and a bap. Not that the vortech tune was bad but the brenspeed tune, jlt cold air, and bap did make even more power. It now dyno's at 565 rwhp. Can't wait till summer time.

Your pro's and con's comments are appreciated.

I'm a happy Vortech owner, it's not and 11 but a 95, but I gained 109 rwhp w 8 lbs of boost. If you're fairly handy with a a wrench then you could probably install it your self over a weekend. However, tuning is definitely a necessity.

Looks like I picked the wrong week to quit sniffing glue.

These are blow thru setups. Meaning the MAF sensor is after the compressed air which results in, "not-so-good" drive-ability compared to a draw thru setup in which the MAF is before the supercharger. They still drive very well but not as good as their draw thru counterparts. If you are not happy with the base tune from Vortech we have a great calibration for your 5.0 cars with the Vortech manual cars. See this video and we explain it all! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SqrsZpUVUW8
