Quick question about supercharger basics for the 4.6
A GT-500 blower is a complete waste of money. Once you piece together all the required components you've spent more then a FRPP Whipple kit in the long run. If you do a cost effective blower kit search on here you'll find a lot of members have the M90 blower kit and they got it for around $3,000. That is a great starting point.
Show me a kit with 450hp at the rear wheels for $3500 or close to it. The GT500 adapter will cost about that after you buy everything you need.
stealth, did you decide to keep your setup? I saw you asking about the valet mode I think?
Anyway, My end goal is ~430 rwhp. I figure most kits can put me close if not over pretty easily. From what I understand, at ~450 rwhp you start risking things messing up, and I'd like to avoid that if possible.

Yeah, I decided to keep it.. it's so easy to take on and off that I decided to save myself the money.
Seriously considered a 2012 Dodge Charger AWD/RT 5.7 but from what I hear, the 2011-2012 PCMs are real bastards to hack into and tune. Since I planned a Supercharger for that car, I will sit tight and wait to see what happens later on before I jump on that car.
450 is the safe number floating around the web, but some have made as much as 525whp and average around 480-490whp. 450lbs. torque is supposedly the real number, since torque being the more force behind the two. If I were you, I'd be patient and wait it out rather than being hasty and going on a budget.
The M90 is a fun supercharger. Lots of low end grunt even compared to the Centri's endless top end..

M90 might be a small blower but its big on fun. I don't have the smaller pulley and still running in the 12.2's. With that pulley I'm in the 11's. Its a great safe blower. I do have a new DS to install.....so my numbers will only get better.
Wait for a good kit OP. Don't slap one together.
