$1500 96-04GT Supercharger kit (updated for more cars!)
Many many people have been asking me how I got my supercharger kit for less than $1500. Well, this is how its done....
All I really did was search through http://www.superchargersonline.com and you can find prices for different makes and models. All of this is completely legal lol. I do not work for them but they just have good service and they helped me build my kit. Basically this is a how to piece together your own supercharger kit, so that it comes out alot cheaper than buying an off the shelf kit lol
This is a list of parts youll need to buy:
1. Bracket Assembly
2. Discharge Assembly
3. Air Intake Assembly
4. Oil feed
5. Oil drain
that is just to put together the kit. I have been told that the 96-98 cobras need an addition coolant crossover tube that retails for around $400 from vortech. You will also need to upgrade your fuel injectors and the fuel pump also to supply enough fuel for the supercharger.
That is cost for EVERY single item you need to put a Vortech S, SQ, or T trim on your 2000-2004 Mustang GT. For other models just add up the prices listed. Only thing left to buy is the head unit. They are fairly easy to find if you search Ebay, SVTperformance.com, or Corral.net . A used S-trim sells between $400-800 depending on assumed mileage and condition. I bought mine for $700 with discharge pipe and intake. If you want a new head unit they cost $1849 for a brand new satin V-1 s-trim. A used head unit WILL be alot cheaper and perform just as well. Even if the unit needs a rebuild, the cost is about $350 from vortech or you can find some performance shops that can do it for around $100. Mine was in great condition when I picked it up from a guy on Ebay. Even bieng a 6 year old head unit it had no shaft play and seems to be in perfect condition.
If you find a head unit for $600, add the cost of the hardware ($748) and this comes out to $1348 for a COMPLETE vortech s-trim setup every part new but the head unit and fuel injectors. Even if you paid say $800 it would just come out to $1548 before tax and shipping. All setups will need to be tuned on a dyno
Install takes a full days work to get it done right. Anyone with general knowledge of removing and installing bolts on the front of the timing cover, removing the belt, using a pipe tap, and swapping non-pressed pullies can perform this install.
Yes, that does include everything, but you should not buy the complete "mounting kit" because it costs ALOT more than if you were to buy the parts seperately through the "accessories" part of the website. That kit is $1700 where you could get all the same parts for $750 through the accessories section. Its crazy why they would charge that much simply because its a "kit".
