I am not a 5.0 guy, but if it was me i wouldn't. Unless u had the money to invest in a new engine or buildup of the old one in the not so distant future. If so then go ahead and charge away, but I wouldnt waste my time with the install if i was gonna have to replace it soon. Maybe it will be a freak and go to 250k!! :winks Thats my .02
i also say do it, im thinkin about charging mine with 100,000 miles on it. i think as long as the motor has been well taken care of and you arent going to run crazy boost #'s u should be ok. i would do an 8-10 psi kit
Hey all, im new here, first post actually, But i plan on buying an 89-91 GT soon, and a vortech supercharger. My main question is, is the 5.0 in a 1989 bronco the same block? because i have 2 of those. And ill rebuild one if itll work. Next question is, will the stock transmission and fuel system work with 6-8 psi of boost? And also else what goes bad with miles on these cars? I own a 1988 toyota supra right now, im going to sell it soon. I know everything about that car and being a mechanic, but ive never even seen under the hood of a mustang. I do like them a lot tho.
Haha, Im getting the supercharger no matter what, The ? is, will the transmission take it, and are the bronco and mustang 5.0 long blocks the same. Well long block doesnt matter, im gona get a cam and new heads anyway.
