With forced induction your not gonna be able to do a dyno tune, if u goes used your cab get a vortech or procharger setup for 2500ish

Get bolt on first. If you're not looking to spend a lot of money.
Personally I wouldn't get a supercharger without getting forged internals but that's just me. If I get a supercharger I want to run mid to high boost without worrying about messing up anything.

You can run 400 to 420 rwhp with a stock bottom end just fine

I have the 2v 4.6l
If I get a supercharger I want to do everything. Diamond pistons, Manley rods etc.
Maybe a 2.8 KB
The only thing I don't want is my car to sound like its about to cut off with the bigger cams. I hate it.
In older cars it sounds okay but I don't like it on mustangs.
But yeah you can run a supercharger with low boost on stock. But I would suggest getting bolt ons first
Cold air intake, plenum, throttle body ect.

Ford Racing has a 550hp intercooled Whipple kit that would safely put you around 440whp based on an estimated 20% drivetrain loss.

FRPP does a lot of testing and that's the power level they were happy with, best compromise between power and reliability.

I've seen guys make a fair bit more with that kit on stock internals but you're gambling at that point.

I just out that money right towards boost, cold air intakes add zero performance gains

Lmao zero huh?
You never see someone with a stock gt and supercharger. Everyone put bolt ons first.
But go ahead do what he says, he knows everything.
