Okay guys, the ultimate question... Now this is not going to happen soon, jut reasearching right now. So I have a 1991 Mustang 5.0 once this engine dies I will replace the rebuilt 302 I have in my garage. This 302 is stock engine wise. Now I'm wanting to put twisted wedge heads on and insert the trick flow cam. Intake is still a question, I already have the GT40 upper and lower intake. But the super charger I'm looking at is the Kenne bell Roots supercharger MUSTANG 5.0 (1) this supercharger replaces the upper intake. Turbo wise... Idk where to start. The setup for the new engine with the trick flow stuff and the 3.55 gears I have it should be fine in low torque range so that's where I'm hesitating on the turbo and supercharger. I hate how difficult the turbos are but are they really worth it? I've rode in one before and it is pretty cool but idk... Thoughts?
Turbo seems complicated. But I kinda wish I spent the extra money to boost for more future power that I doubt my v3 can make. I'd say it's worth it, they're more efficient but more prone to boost leak. But they're badass
They really aren't that bad. Buy a good kit...and itll be worth it.
Tuning is easy too. No different than a roots or centri...just maf, AFR, timing...all the usual stuff. Best part about a turbo car is its NA...till you start getting in it. Supercharger you are always spinning that thing...
Ok that part is true.
But other than that they are great systems.
Agreed. They're just a little more complex install wise compared to a centri. But personally I would still turbo. I wish I would have, don't get me wrong I love my centri setup but compared to a turbo setup and wanting more power I shoulda bit the bullet for extra $ and gone turbo.
