Great kit the only problem is the piping that runs under the k member with the non catted down pipe my bone stock gt put down 385hp and 430tq at the wheelsHelpful (22)

Great Turbo kit marred by tons of piping.
Installation took me a full weekend at a local hobby shop. Performance - After I installed the kit I sent it to a local performance shop to have it dynoed, and cranked out 454 road HP at 9 PSI of boost from a stock of 303 RHP. Also, they replaced my stock spark plugs with 1-Step Colder plugs designed for Forced induction. So I'd say a decent gain for the 5 G's + dropped on this.. Fit - Installing was semi-hard. Instructions provided helped greatly. A lot of the mandrel tubing included may seem alien if you don't see the bigger picture of it coming together. Had piping welded rather than relying on clamps provided. (Little to no leakage) The greatest drawback to this for me was the ground clearance it added. All of the piping will fit through your K-members and add inches to your clearance so if you are going to put this on I suggest avoiding speed bumps or any kind of "Bad" road driving because it will Scrape...Helpful (78)

I have been a mustng owner for 10 years. my latest one is a 2006 mustang GT. When i added this turbo i have never seen or felt anything this powerful. Best TurboHelpful (125)
Supercharger or turbocharger? I've been looking at both for a while now and I'm wanting to know which should I go with. Which one is better for a daily driver and for 1/8 mile and 1/4 mile runs?
Superchargers are generally safer, cheaper, and provide the easiest installation. The provide instant power since they are belt drive but that also causes some parasitic loss of power. Boost levels can be changed with a pulley swap. Turbochargers allow far more boost, more power, have zero parasitic loss, are more fuel efficient. Power is built up slower than a supercharger since the turbine needs increased engine rpms (which produces more exhaust gases and in turn spins the turbine faster) but boost/power can be adjusted in the car with the use of a boost controller. They are generally more expensive, dangerous, and time consuming to install. For daily driving, supercharging will probably be more fun as power is always on tap and you don't need to wait for a mid ranged rpm to get full boost (in most cases). Turbos will beat it in the 1/8 and 1/4 but the size of the turbo determines which application is better suited. Smaller turbos spin faster and produce power faster (say for 1/8 drag races) but larger turbos generate more power and are better suited for 1/4 drag races. A properly built supercharged Mustang will make the average enthusiast more than happy. Just remember when you start pushing higher boost levels and more than ~450rwhp, you should start considering a new clutch, forged internals to prevent damage from too much power, new fuel pump (to feed it), and better sparkplugs (generally colder).
I have a 2007 GT Convertible with the 4.6 V8 and the automatic trans. How much will the auto trans handle, will it handle 850 HP?
The 5R55S transmission can handle up to 550 ft.lbs. of torque at the converter according to Ford. If you are running 850 hp at the converter I would highly suggest purchasing a heavier duty transmission or rebuilding your stock transmission with heavier duty internals.
Will this kit eliminate the need got a CAI? Will the complete kit provide me with everything I need to run my Stang safely? I drive my car almost everyday and I want a serious increase in horsepower. I was going to add the CAI, tuner, long headers, X pipe, Brola exhaust and 4.10 gears, but if I can get more bang for my buck with the Hellion kit, then this is the route I am going to take. I just want to know if I can still drive safely with just the kit alone or will I need other mods. Thanks
Turbo kits almost always produce more power than superchargers. That said, standard output superchargers and low boost turbochargers do not require many changes to the car. Once you break the 450 rwhp mark it is time to start thinking about forging the lower internals, crankshaft and upgrading your clutch. Also, upgrading to a one-piece aluminum drive-shaft is considered a must. Doing a CAI, full exhaust, tune, and gears will take your car fro ma stock 270 rwhp to about 320rwhp (depending on tune) and easily cost you $2,000+. At a 50rwhp gain that's $40/rwhp gained. Likewise, a complete Hellion single turbo kit costs $5,800 and can add 230rwhp on an otherwise stock Mustang GT. That's roughly $25.22/rwhp gain. If you get a turbo or supercharger, you will not need to get the CAI. This kit comes with a tuner (and a base tune) also. You will not need longtube header as custom exhaust piping is in the kit to pipe to the turbo and adding anything freer flowing/breathing after the turbo will gain you more power. Finally, when you get to this power level you likely will not want 4.10 gears and most forced induction guys opt for a more usable and drive-able 3.55(stock manual trans) or 3.73 gearing. Just remember, when you get to this power level, the game changes as far as safety and getting the power to the ground. You will want to replace nearly all of your suspension components, especially rear lower control arms, and get wider and softer tires.
Just curious what gauges are needed for a turbo setup?
It would be a good idea to get a boost/vacuum gauge. Depending on what else you do with the car will depending on what gauges are necessary for you.
I'm looking to max the HP on my 06 mustang gt with this hellion single turbo kit, what is a complete list of mods I would need to achieve this goal?
The Hellion Single Turbo is a very capable kit, able to support between 500 and 850hp. In order to achieve the kit's max of 850hp, you would need an engine built to handle the boost and power, with aftermarket or ported heads and an aftermarket intake manifold, plus all of the supporting mods for the fuel system.
This will work with an automatic transmission.
Hellion Single Turbo Kit - 5 psi – 380/10 psi - 500 HP
does not effect ground clearance unless your low to the point of being bagged
The Hellion Single Turbo - Complete Kit will work with your mustang as long as it is equipped with the 4.6L V8 engine from a 2005 to 2010 GT.
Hey Bird, This is a complete kit and would not require anything but a dyno tune once installed
With the Hellion Single Turbo Kit, this will come down to the amount of Boost you want to run, as well as your power goals, as a turbo provides a large range of adjust ability as well as covering a larger horsepower range. For a basic setup like this, all stock can work, however, to gain more power, a larger throttle body and exhaust will assist in getting more air in and out. After that , a boost cooler like water/meth injection, or an intercooler chiller will help lower intake air temperatures to assist in making more power and allow more timing to be run. Beyond that more exotic setups can be perused, such as custom turbo cams, ported heads, intake manifolds, high boost applications, especially on built, low compression bottom end.
Hi, I suggest upgrading to the Ford Performance High Performance Dual Fuel Pump Kit Item# 50140 its the same high flow system found in the 2007-2009 Shelby GT500s. Here is the link http://www.americanmuscle.com/ford-fuel-pump-0509gt.html
The Hellion Single Turbo - Complete Kit (05-10 GT) has no mileage limit at all. It's just a matter the condition of your engine. It's finding out how much longer your motor will last, and simply deciding if it is worth spending thousands of dollars for something that will last until your engine dies.
Either. I do recommend the steeda charge motion plates. You get a lil more bang for the buck
This kit will run with any fuel type or octane your car is built for. However, I always recommend my customers use at least 91 octane for any performance tunes. Just be sure you tune it for the fuel you'll be using.
