ATI makes very good superchargers so I think the Procharger is a great choice!

How many miles do you have on the Stang? Any other mods? If it were me I'd make sure I rebuilt the bottom end so you can run a safe amount of boost and not worry about grenading the engine. Email the guys at Procharger and see what they recommend. I don't know if the kits come with upgraded fuel pumps, injectors, etc. but those will all be things to consider.

procharger is a good choice, if you get the p1sc system you will get cobra injectors and a chip or tuner with it as well along with the oil and everything you need to get it running. i am pretty sure you can get a fuel pump with it, i didnt because i had one allready. if you stick with 8psi you will make some good numbers and wont need to rebuild the bottom end once you get to 10+ psi you will want to start looking at your internals. i love my procharger and its very easy to install. takes a little time but you can save money by having a friend give you a hand and doing it yourself the instructions the send are very good and walk you right through the install. hopefully i helped you out some.

I have 120k on the car the only mods that i know of are a k&n filter flowmaster 40series catback exhaust dumped in front of the axle.

I have looked into maybe getting a forged rotating assembly.

I have also looked into doing a pi swap and new cams.

Im new into mustangs i was a chevy guy before i drove my buddies 03 Terminator so any suggestions for building massive hp and torque helps.

well if you get new internals your block will withstand a lot of hp... up to or over 600hp(correct me if im wrong). but if your gunna do all that then you might not want the p1sc cus your engine will be able to handle so much more so look at the d1sc

as for the miles and how long it will last im not sure but someone will help you on that one but with all my mods im sitting at 370 hp and that was on a day with 90% humidity so i hope that answers the question. plus all i would have to do with the procharger to get more boost is change the pulley on it.
