Default What do I need to upgrade if I decide to Supercharge my '12 GT?

Looking at a Roush Kit (Roush Stage 2 Kit) for my 2012 GT. Do I need to upgrade anything else? Cooling? Drivetrain? Clutch?

Also, what are the diferences between the Brembo 2012 Gt and GT 500 from 2012?

THanks, guys.

I did the Kenne Bell kit. Advertised as 725 go. Never had it dyno'd but I can tell you it's very quick now. I have put tunes and intake mods on cars before and it did help, but marginally. The SC mod is a tire shredder. I put in the FRP fan but nothing else and everything is fine after 2 years. I am sure I'll need a clutch long before I would have normally, but no big deal. The price you pay for the power.

XD40Colorado, I highly suggest you call KOOKS Headers and talk to them about a appropriate exhaust system. 866-586-5665. Also, bstang14 makes a good point about getting a good tune. Find a reputable outfit with a certified rear wheel dyno and have them fine tune your ride to suit your purposes.
