2014 Saleen Mustang Vortech Supercharger Install

Here are a couple of videos of my supercharger install. I want to say thanks to Dylan, who is a forum member, and Terry at Beefcake racing for helping me throughout this adventure! I ordered the Vortech system through Beefcake Racing and Terry included ID1000's and a BAP. I also want to thank Justin's Performance Center for great customer service! I ordered a new coolant reservoir, breathers, and t bolt clamps from JPC. The install was straight forward but very time consuming. I probably have about 20 hours in the install. I have only completed two data logs for Lund Racing. A five minute idle and an RPM specific log. Lund will send my back a revised tune and I should be able to drive it around the neighborhood. After the Data Log process, I will update this thread to let you know how it went. I've attached a couple of videos and a couple photos for a quick visual.

Thanks for the compliments! I can't wait to drive this thing. Up next will be the Shaftmasters drive shaft, McCleod RST clutch, and flywheel. I can't imagine the clutch lasting to long.

I just wanted to let anyone know that wants to install a Vortech, that you do not need to cut the bumper cover of get rid of CS fog lights on a 2013/2014 mustang. I was pleasantly surprised that the bumper cover effortlessly installed without any cutting! I will have to cut the air dam to fit around the charge and discharge tubing. Not much though.

Many people do the RST clutch and like them but I didn't like mine and replaced it within a 1000 miles.

Mine had vibration problems at low RPMs.

I also found that it did not grab immediately like my old Centerforce DYAD did and it felt like I was riding the clutch at times. The engagement felt vague.

I went back to the DYAD and what a difference.

Your mileage may vary and you may very well like the RST.
Not me though.

Thanks for the advice. I will definately check the centerforce out.

I am not trashing the RST, it just did not work out for me.

The Centerforce DYAD one I have is the dual disc one. It grabs really good and the difference is noticeable.

That said though, I hear the DYAD is not good if one rides the clutch and it needs to be engaged right away, in other words, all on or all off.

The DYAD is rated for 1300 lbs while the RST is for 7 or 8 hundred foot pounds.
