To Supercharge Or Not To Supercharge?

Who has 500+ wheel HP on motor? What mods do you have? Im not sure I want to go supercharged! I would rather go all motor! Thanks in advance for any info!

I love the whine from a supercharger but that's just me. If I ever get enough money saved I would go that route.

This. I'm planning on doing a cam and a Maggie once I have the money lined up.

500 RWHP is far more easier to obtain with an LS3 than an L99. You can get within range with long tube headers, a cam, ported heads/throttle body/intake manifold, cold air intake, and a tune. A couple shots of nitrous would certainly help if you decide not to do a supercharger.

you can get 500whp from N/A without doing too much. Supercharge it when your ready to spend and make the commitment for way more power!

Whether you go S/C or NA, the mods would be about the same. Fuel system and suspension to support the extra hp.

I like the idea of a all motor build a lot more than blower route. Because its just more baddass IMO. nothing beats that idle sound.

but the blowers are appealing because i feel like its more simple, and makes better power. More power down low and on top. I also feel like the engine is more fragile when you go cam.

a N/A 500WHP is going to be a decent size cam and heads. not a conservative build to my measurement.

a blown 500WHP SS is going to be more conservative for a blower.

I slapped the eforce on My 13
Put down 491.5 on my first pull on a Mustang dyno. Stock cam, exhaust, intake Canned tune eldobrock provided
This winter I'll see what a cam headers, full exhaust, cai, ported throttle body, underdrive 10% injectors and a fuel pump will put down..

I'm shocked at how it just increased power from start to finish..

Good luck on your never ending quest

500 hp is the limit on stock drivetrain so plan on a rear end and CVs along with suspension.

The one thing I can say about supercharging is I have not lost any driveability at all. If I am driving the car normal I don't know it is even there.

Thanks guys! I'm going to really consider the supercharger! Sounds like it may be simpler and more fun! I have a friend that's a Magnuson dealer! Going to get him to give me some insight! Thanks again!

If you're considering a SC and located in Texas check out ADM. My friends thought I was stupid for driving from Houston to Dallas to get my work done. But when I got there, a Canadian and a Wisconsin Camaro were being worked on. My drive wasn't that bad.

For supercharging ADM is one of the best

We have 5 psi on supercharger and over 500hp at rear tires. look at the list of mods to get there. Hp is with knock sensers on not like some tuners who turn sensers off to get a higher bragging rights # that is not a true street HP #

How much do you want to spend getting to 500rwhp is the better question

You can easily get over 500rwhp on an L99 with headers, exhaust, CAI, tune, heads and a LLSR cam.

if I could guarantee 4000 for the LSA I would be an owner, also if that was installed and I didn't have to do it.

And my options are N/A. I've seen an L99 make 550rwhp with that setup.
