  • Unfortunately, it will not work on any 2009 or 2010 V6 Mustang. This particular supercharger is made specifically for 2005-2008 V6 only.

Am I required to run high octane fuel (90 ) in my car after installing the sc?


Helpful (0)
  • Supercharger systems typically require a thicker and higher octane for the optimum performance, thus for the Vortech Supercharger System - Satin (05-08 V6) it is required that you run 89 octane.


can you run the supercharger on stock 06 4.0 mustang fuel pump and does it reqire a tuner


Helpful (0)
  • You can use your stock fuel pump, but over time you may want to get an upgraded one. This Supercharger Kit will come with a DiabloSport Predator Tuner which is required when adding this Supercharger. It will come with the proper tune for this application.


Can I install this without an intercooler?


Helpful (0)
  • It can be installed without an intercooler but an intercooler will help produce more power by cooling the air significantly. You can always add one later.


Can I get more boost with an intercooler? Would it be possible to get more 9-12PSI of boost if this SC had an intercooler attached to it? (Mishimoto Z or M line?)


Helpful (0)
  • The boost is a function of the pulley turning the supercharger. The greater the boost, the greater the heat. When you add the intercooler, whether water/air or air/air like the Mishimoto, the incoming boosted charge is cooler. Cooler means more oxygen as the air is denser. So if you run 10 psi boost with an intercooler the tuner can put more advance in the tune without the worry of pre-detonation (spark knock) and the cooler charge has more oxygen as well. In my opinion, an intercooler is a must for engine health and HP/torque. Good luck.

Do I need any engine upgrades for this? So far I have a Ford Racing CAI, Pypes True Duals, and a Bama tuner. Will I need engine upgrades for this to work decent? Also can I use the Ford Racing CAI with the SC intake? Sorry I'm new to SC's! Thanks!


Helpful (0)
  • This kit comes with everything needed to safely run it at its stock boost value and power levels. Most recommend eventual replacement of the weaker 7.5" rear end with the stronger take off 8.8" rear end from a Mustang GT. Additionally, if you have a v6 with a manual transmission, an eventual upgrade from the weaker T5 to the stronger Tremec 3650 from a Mustang GT may be a good idea but is not immediately required. Your dual exhaust will help the car breath better and you may be able to reach power levels higher than advertised on the product page. Your current air intake will not be used as this kit comes with it's own intake system.

    Once installed Supercharger is guaranteed to put a smile on your face

    This supercharger was a pain in the butt until it was fully installed, and caused me more of a headache than I was looking for. So first I'm going to go with the cons. 1. Check the supercharger when it arrives and don't let the delivery personnel leave until you check your supercharger. I am in the Army so my mail goes to a single place where it isn't checked, it showed up with a cracked oil feed that was leaking lubricant. 2. Don't install the fuel injectors until you know all the parts are correct. Once again another issue, the serpentine belt included in the kit was 2 inches too short. 3. Shipping time, Not sure what happened with mine but the order didn't go through for a week. Then once it did, it took another two weeks to ship. It took a month for me to receive the kit. Ships in 5 to 7 days, not true. Pros. 1. The installation manual that Vortech includes is fairly precise and easy to follow. You can also find a copy on their website so you can read it before the supercharger arrives. 2. Vortech includes three extra bottles of lube for the supercharger. 3. The hardest part of installation is re-locating the power steering reservoir. Which isn't that hard at all. 4. The Diablosport predator tuner is easy to follow. Installation would only have been a day had there not been a bad line and a short belt. Some tips if your a DIY mechanic that is not afraid to get dirty like me. 1. Pre-assemble the parts you can, it will make installation easier. 2. Make Sure you cut the MAF senor wires in different places so the heat shrink tubing will be able to fit. Also buy a roll of electrical tape to help insulate the wires. (Or buy a Diablosport MAFia) 3. Buy everything you need to do an oil change or shortly after installation get an oil change done. your car may not recognize the 39lb injectors at first like mine did and throw more gas in the engine like mine did. 4. Buy a bottle of Power steering fluid and a bottle of the same oil in your engine. You will need the oil for the O rings on the injectors and the PS fluid to re fill your ps reservoir.

    Super 6

    All in all I am very satisfied with the product. It adds a good deal of power to the stock v6 motor. In addition to the S/C I have a BBK TB, JBA Cat4ward Headers, Screamin' Demon Coil, Aluminum D/S, and Shelby Performance Terlingua Exhaust. Suffice it to say, the 4.0 is 'awake' now. The supercharger went on with minimal fuss. Most of my headaches were caused when I damaged the power steering reservoir upon removal. A quick trip to the local junkyard netted me another one and I was back in business. The hoses are on there tight and the thing is plastic, don't force it, and you likely will not break yours. If you are mechanically inclined, you can do the install yourself, but plan for a full day. Once it is installed you will want to run the car and check over things, make sure there are no engine codes etc. It is possible to create a vacuum leak if you do not get the hoses secured and in the correct spots. This will generate a lean condition in the motor. Other than the power one of the best things out of the kit is the tuner. I received a diablosport in Tune with this kit and could not be happier with it. One weak spot is the directions, better diagrams and photos would be a nice addition to the package. That being said, it is pretty easy to figure out. Also, when you remove your injectors they will have a seal on the bottom of each one that seals the injector to the head. Ford carries new replacements and you will probably want to get them, mine were old (2005) and basically fell apart when removed from the injector. A set of 6 are $35 from Ford. Vortech does not mention these seals in the directions so it is a bit of knowledge that is good to have before you pop out your fuel rails and injectors. The S/C is pretty quiet, though you do get that sexy whistle when tooling around. The car pulls strong combined with my additional mods, and will launch pretty darn hard for a six. With the stock rearend, the fuel consumption is not that noticeable over my old Ford Racing CAI setup, unless you keep your foot in it, then you will notice it. Trust me, it is hard not to. Adding the S/C makes the car very fun to drive. AM was great, so was Vortech. Everything arrived around a week after I ordered it. Everything was labled clearly and sealed safely in one large box. If you got the cash, this is a mod to have.

    pretty good

    I ordered the supercharger on the 31st of november and received the kit on the 24th of december I'm not sure who to blame for that I think vortech was behind on making superchargers probably because it was around the holidays. Anyways the kit does what it's supposed to, it makes the car much faster even when your just pulling out onto the road, you can really feel when the boost kicks in. I recommend getting a lsd because the power will make the wheels spin if you just nail it from a stand still. Their is some whistle from the supercharger but you mainly here it at lower revs when you let off the throttle or when you first start it up. I haven't changed the oil in the supercharger yet but from what I can tell it looks like it won't be too much of an issue. I had the supercharger installed at a ford performance shop (Pro-dyno in FT mills SC) and they said it took about 8 hours to install. When I first ordered the unit AM told me they don't have a tune for the kit so you have to get it directly from vortech I just got a custom dyno-tune from the shop that installed the unit btw my car put down 286.91 hp and 274.22 lb/tq to the wheels, I had an alternator spike when on the dyno so it says 300 hp but it was just 286hp at red line. i haven't had any problems with the kit and i think its the best think ive done to my car so far.

    i read the instructions many times and decided to break the job into 3 steps. moving the power steering reseviour, injector replacement and last to install the sc. all needed parts are supplied with the kit. i grew up in a shop when people who worked there were called mechanics, my father was one. install went great. had some trouble with the puter, took the car to the local ford dealer who has a sc and puter guru there. he worked his magic and no problems since. its been on the car 3 years now and i have a ball driving. what a great product.
