After months of research, made this purchase from AM because of the price and free shipping, and because Vortech is a very high end product. Even got a rebate from Vortech! I did a very detailed install ...

Adding horsepower is great, but what else do I have to add to my stang so that it won't break something with the supercharger?

noodlebear Year: 1998 Model: Cobra

  • It's really about making sure the parts that are on the car are up to the task unless it is stated that it's absolutely needed to replace them. Making sure your drivetrain has/ had the best maintaince possible goes a long way to avoid costly repairs. So using high-quality oil and gear fluid is essential. Personally Royal Purple has my vote. Other than that their are three things you may want to consider here. A clutch upgrade could be in order so you can transmit that power without destroying the stock piece. Secondly, an intercooler (charge cooler) is something I would run for any supercharged set-up. The supercharger compresses the air, and as a result, heats it. This heat can possibly lead to detonation. An intercooler will allow more consistent and safe operation at the limits. Lastly and most importantly.. A spot on tune by someone you can trust and has a great reputation. The tune can make or break any supercharged set-up so I would recommend some dyno time.

    Buy This Amazing Product!!

    After months of research, made this purchase from AM because of the price and free shipping, and because Vortech is a very high end product. Even got a rebate from Vortech! I did a very detailed install and some other unrelated work that took a number weeks, but I could see this being completed in a couple of weekends with ease. Great components, unbelievable quality and fitment, excellent install manual. I got great advice and support directly from a Vortech engineer (Thanks Jamie Rabago) because I live at altitude (5500 ft plus) which created some minor complications. Vortech even gave me an upgraded chip no charge to help with fuel mapping and a dyno tune. The end result is 427HP/357 ft pounds torque (crank) at this altitude with no intercooler and no other major mods aside from a Bassani X-Pipe Exhaust. Retained great driveablity, but hang on when you "mat" it. If you have an SN-95 Cobra or GT, buy this product. It is less expensive than other superchargers, and greatly outperforms them. Thanks AM; I've been a long time customer, and you proved me right for my loyalty. And keep working with great companies and providing these kind of superior products. Bravo AM and Vortech!!
