Question Need Info on Kenne Bell Supercharger

I was looking at the standard kit Kenne Bell Supercharger ( click link below)

http://www.kennebell.net/supercharge.../mustang50.htm

Anyone have one? I have stock heads. I was wondering if this would work well with my set-up. It seems like a pretty easy install compared to Heads or say a Vortech type Supercharger. I also like the fact that it installs on the top of your engine like a traditional supercharger.
Any help would be appreciated! Kenne Bell is not too good about answering e-mails.

it's a good unit - easy to install. There are two models - one uses the stock lower intake and one uses the GT40 lower. If you get the one for the stock lower, buy a spare lower and have it ported to get max power from the KB.

Kenne Bell takes weeks to answer e-mails sometimes, and it takes a lot of calls to talk to a real person, but it can be done. The kits are very complete, only thing extra I had to purchase was plugs. If you are good at working on your car, a weekend should do the trick. I had mine installed by a proformance shop but a lot of people do it themselves with good results. Should make your pony really fly!

“If it rolls, floats, flies or shoots, runs on gasoline or gunpowder, goes fast or shoots a big bullet and makes lots of noise, thus producing torque and recoil — it’s cool.”

I just posted the same questions over at another site, but I need the kit for the GT-40 lower as I have a 93 Cobra. I called KB today and got through the first time and my question were answered completely.

I never noticed they were in California, which is where I am. It seems like it's a good bang for the buck and easy to install.

before you go with a KB.....

I recommend a good set of heads......

the only downside with the KB is having to use a stock style intake.....

and yes a custom cam is a must along with fuel system upgrades.....
