That's the nice thing about the Mustang. It was overbuilt to a degree so that it can take the extra power and torque from a supercharger without requiring much else in changes. You see stuff on line all the time about people adding boost to their small little import 4 cylinder cars, and then they blow up or stuff breaks.

I saw a video on youtube recently of a brand new off the lot Hyundai Genesis with the turbochared engine doing doughnuts in the parking lot. 30 seconds into the video, the engine blew up.

In a mustang GT, you add an extra 150 HP * 100-150 Tq over the stock setup, and as long as it is tuned correctly, you have little to worry about.
