470 RWHP sounds a bit shy for an SC'd 5.0, IMO.

Definitely agree, I would've wanted more out of it, especially for the kind of money a SC costs.

Don't know if you noticed, but that is at the rear wheels.

Pretty sure what he means is that those numbers are very conservative.. considering our 4.6 can easily obtain those numbers and more with similar kits.

Plus we don't have to worry about the higher compression of the 5.0s..

But that power rating was for the base kit that uses the stock airbox. That's not too shabby. I like the 270* belt wrap for the supercharger pulley. If the base 1900 series TVS makes 470, what will the 2300 with some higher boost put down?

Not bad numbers, i would say with a slightly smaller pulley and a better air box they could get 500. I still think those kits look kinda cheap. Not saying they are, i guess im a just a little traditional when it comes to what a blower should looks like.

I prefer the Roush R2300 over these kits, eventhough they have the same Eaton 2300 TVS rotors.. I like Roush's design a little better. I'd even prefer the old style Magnachargers with the external jackshaft on the left side lulz

This one looks weird to me.. wonder how wide that intake inlet is where the pulley is located..

That thing does look funny... like someone made it with an erector set or something.
