Dreamakers recently put a */C on a Mustang and the installation wasnt bad but the guy is playing hell getting it tuned I hear. Nate told him installation only . I guess it depends on where you live and if a good tuner is available.

And you still have a Ford
Correct on both counts, but with a positive displacement blower, you have a pissed off torque monster.

The Rousch Performance unit is the way to go. It is the only system available for which Ford will honor the factory warranty.

How good is it if Ford still honors the warranty?

I already own the truck so too late plus I hear the Marauder is a POS.

Seem like a nice project!

I dont see why Bonneville are soo much better than some fords, i had a tons of problem with my Bonneville. And many other here.

Ive seen a blown Marauder at the drag strip , it was pulling 13 flat on quarter mile,
@120mph

He wasnt able to floor it until he take some speed (traction ...)

And I know the vendor for you to buy parts from.

www.stage3motorsports.com

My wife and I are good friends with the guy who runs Stage 3. He is one of Roush'* largest volume parts dealers in the nation, and he ships everything for free! Give him a look, and if you can find a better price send him an email and I'm sure he'll match it for you.

EDIT: I should also add that if you don't see the parts your looking for on his website, give him a call (his phone number is listed at the top right corner of the web page) and let him know what you want. He can get anything Roush manufactures.

Who let you into the lounge? Did your wife forget to lock your cage again?

Ignorance is misery for many!!!
Just because Ford still honors the warranty is does not mean it is junk! All that Roush has done is develop the kit for Ford; the same kit that is used in the new Mustang Shelby. GM has used SC in many of our cars; does that mean they are junk too???

I hope you never run into my cousins Marauder; you would be for a big surprise!!! It will run 12.90'* all day at the track and it is a daily driver.

Default SUPERCHARGER

I work at a ford dealer and we did one on a truck and a mustang not too hard at all. the kit is as easy as it comes and you still retain factory warranty through roush.
