^ +1, have you built the lower end of the engine, or are you going to? you need forged rods and pistons at a minimum (should add a crank also) for more than about 12lbs of boost.

that's definitely not your typical whipple kit. Are you getting it used? 18lbs is a lot. Is that going on a stock motor? you may want to also add a fuel pump to that setup. How are you tuning it?

Yes it was used for 1000 miles..I'm not going to run more then 8# it just came with what is listed. I'm getting the Ford Racing M-9407-GT05 fuel pump. Also I'm going to have Injected Engineering do the install and tuning.

Cool! That's the fuel pump that came with my kit. I'm guessing the 10 rip kit comes with a stronger tensioner, otherwise you should get one of those too. Also consider getting an oil separator (aka catch can). Get spark plugs too. Awesome, you're going to have fun with that. I just installed mine about a week ago and it's a blast. Way too easy to spin the wheels.

congrats on the blower.
seeing you have the steeda 10 rib kit, you'll need another bigger SC pulley instead for the stock block.
the 3.5" is rated at 10 psi for the gen 2 Whipple.
for 8 psi, you may want something a tad bit larger.
HT0 plugs?

I'm having the 10 rib removed and replacing it with WHIPPLE-PULLEY0507GT - 3.625" 8-9 psi. Injected Engineering supplies the spark plugs and coolant, but I will definitely check on the oil separator.

Anything else you can think of that I need to add to my list of parts?

If they're removing the 10 rib then I'd put on a stronger tensioner. The guys at Injected Engineering can confirm this but, I think with the 3.625 pulley you'll want a 90mm tensioner and 90mm idler pulley. The stock idler pulley is 90mm. The stock tensioner is 76mm so I recommend getting the Thump Racing tensioner part number PM-1002-90 which comes with a 90mm. The belt size I believe would be 124.7

They have them for the 2.9 and 3.4 kits, not sure if that would work with the 2.3. I'd give the guys at Lethal Performance a call.

congrats soblessed 2000, you will love the car after it's all
said and done. i'd keep the 10rib setup, if you can change
the lower (and upper if needed) to achieve your desired
psi. keep the updates coming!

Talk about good customer service, I called the person that sold me the kit. He added the GT500 fuel pump, lower boost pulley, installation, full custom tune/dyno/mapping and I will be complete for less then 6k. All I have to do is drive the car to MS and spend the weekend at the casino.

Default Ford Racing Supercharger for '05 GT w/auto trans

It's an old thread but here goes.

No more updates? The 475 hp supercharger kit listed in the Ford Racing Catalog is on my wish list. My '05 has slightly under 15k miles at the moment.

Questions:

Will the stock auto trans handle the extra power? If not, should I have it built or buy one already built from someone like B&M?

Will the rear end stand up? I don't plan on racing the car, just build the car Ford should have built in the first place.

Love the way the car looks stock; don't want to change a thing appearance wise.

Any and all advice appreciated.

I ran the Whipple HO kit with intercooler (which is for sale by the way) on the stock block and drivetrain at 467 RWEHP (about 550 crank), no problems. When I added a few mods and upped the power to 502RWHP, I had the t-56 MagnumXL and mcleod RXT clutch, so can't really comment on those, although I would think that the clutch is probably a good item to upgrade when going above 450. The rear end is rock solid, I'm still on the stock rear end in the current setup, although I do have the gt500 finned cover on it now (was running the ford racing axle girder before). I can't comment on the auto transmission, mine was a manual.
