Anyone out there looking to supercharge thier stang, I would recommend going with a roots style of blower. It took me about 2 months off and on to install a NOVI 2200 IC on my 2005 Saleen. Punching a hole in the pan was not fun and modifying the water neck was a pain in the neck. The fit with the Paxton was extremely tight, especially around the oil filter and the intake to the SC. After getting midway through the install, I felt dumb for buying the Paxton when the roots style just plops down on on top of the engine in place of the intake. And yes, I had to remove the intake to modify the water neck. Modifying the fuel pump was a pain in the a$$, again, be careful not to break the small elbow fitting on top of the fuel filter as I did. The fuel lines and break lines come in a bundle package. Yes, I said bundle. You can not just replace a small $.50 cent plastic elbow. You have to replace all the break lines and fuel tine together! The small plastic elbow has a small green button you push to release it. Don't ask how I broke it. Also a word of caution, if you have a Saleen and want to supercharge it...you will have to buy stock pulleys! I bought the kit for $5.5K and still have not drove the car yet. Today will be the day hopefully depending on weather. If you want to see a video of it, check out youtube and search for "ammotroop1992" One thing I do love is the whistle of the blower! I'll upload the photos from the install later today :bigthumbsup

Well, took it out for the first drive. All I can say is it was better than taking a bucket of Viagra. Completely driveable below 3,000 RPM. Any thing over that and it's like getting shot out of a cannon.

Check out www.briskracing.com I bought BRISK Silver Racing 3VR17YS Spark Plug at $17.99 ea and they work great. Did feel silly paying $160 for sparkplugs :)

Ever get the feeling you missed something? I drove the car and ran great, but still felt something was amiss. So I did what anyone would do and re-re-re-read the instructions. I missed a crtical step in the installation. PCV valve on drive side valve cover that runs into the intake... Thankfully I only drove the car hard for less than 30 seconds. It's late here in Germany, so I get to wait till tomorrow to see what it does under full boost instead of diverting it back into the valve cover. The car ran good before, can't wait till tomorrow.

Shelby is now selling Selby GT350's with optional Paxtons.

I'm sure it's all good when it's perfect.

I've riden in a Vortech S197 and it was crazy fast above 3k.

Are you able to but the car on a dyno and have it dyno tuned? Or are you using a canned tune? Is it possible for you to check AFR, and timing? I wouldnt hammer on it to much with out making sure your air fuel ration and timing are in order.

+1.

Nobody should ever do such mods without a dyno.

Heck, I won't even do an exhaust or CAI mod without a dyno. I want to know my gain and double check everything.
