Hrm...you might be listening to your guys at work more than you should.
Kenne Bell, ROUSH, and Whipple make just as solid setups.
Most people around here that want to stick with a good blower that has low psi, is a clean setup, and spares you from internal work go with the ROUSH M90 if they do not plan on doing any other work to the car.
The M90 is not what you want if you want to push it a lot further.
As far as the Catted vs. Non Catted if you are going to supercharge it you need to do some REAL research and asking around on these forums as far as getting an exhaust setup that will both pass emissions, and not risk other parts of your car.
MELLOWYELLOW06, and Vader GT are two guys I know you could talk to.
Bring up the issue about cats clogging with a supercharger and the fact that emissions is a bitch for you.
I would actually make a new thread asking about it.
Title it "How to supercharge with a catted setup and NOT hurt your car" or "Catted or No cats with Supercharger?"
Something like that. Again put in both concerns as to the cats clogging and passing emissions if you go without cats in the thread.
You will probably get a crapload of good info that way.
But I'm telling you right now.. there are a GOOD number of superchargers with JUST as a quality and clean setup, if not better than the E-force has.
Most people on here actually do not go with the E-force.
For a mild blower that people want to put on and be done with adding more power and not have to worry about forging... The M90 is
held REALLY high to people. It will not allow you to push as much boost as some other setups, but it does have a kit you can add if you do decide to.
And it's safety as far as the engine goes is pretty damn renowned... I can tell you that.
I believe most guys are pushing about 420RWHP with just the regular M90 kit. Again remember that is not crank... its to the WHEELS.
HP to the engine would net more of a HP reading.
While that is not HUGE. It is VERY NICE number for making really nice power on these cars while keeping the engine VERY safe.
Again you really dont wanna push very much more than that if you wanna stay as close to COMPLETELY safe as you can with this engine and
not dig into forging the internals.
I'd say you REALLY want to do some good research into this before just going with the E-force.
A few co workers and buddies aren't going to hold a candle to talking to people from all around the world with
multiple set-up like you get when you ask around here.
Odds are if your co workers and buddies are running the E-force and are happy.... Not only are
they likely to be one sided, but the people they know that do not have setups will tell you the same.
Simply because that is the extend of knowledge and input they have on the subject.
DEFINITELY something to think about.
Again I have not heard bad things about the E-force... But NOWHERE have I hard a consensus BY ANY MEANS
that it is the best and cleanest setup.
I have been around here for a LONG time, and to tell you the truth... I have heard more praise about the M90 by FAR when
it comes to your concerns.
And to the other guys wanting HUGE power, the Kenne Bell and Whipple are really the ones most talked about and praised.
Of course you can get either of these and keep the boost down to just a safe level to run on your stock internals, but it's all in the tune as well man.
That's why I talked about the tune in the first place. It will make or break the 05-10 4.6L Mustangs.
And ROUSH's tune for the M90 is as clean and safe as you can get.
Then again... with other mods... you are gonna have to go with a different tune.
You're looking at a custom dyno tune any way you go when you get that supercharger on if you really wanna stay safe. ESPECIALLY given
you have other mods. If not you are really risking the engine going boom for one reason or another.
Heck I insisted on a dyno tune even when I was not blown on my 06GT. I wanted to make DAMN sure I was not running to rich or lean
and had the right A/F ratio etc. on my car.
I did NOT want ANY risk of damaging my engine due to something that could be so EASILY avoided.
