Hey Matt, How much does a supercharger cost and how much horsepower increase and does it affect your fuel economy> thanks mattmatt167 said:roush supercharger for a Mustang, simple, and easy, probably the best bang for the buck, but not the cheapest
Hey Topdogger, what about a chip? how much would this give me. the motor is producing 220hp.. and what chip do you recommend. I cannot find a specific chip for it. Who would you recommend to reprogram the computer and how much hp would that give.. thankstopdogger said:If you're looking for HP don't worry about fuel economy.
You have way more fun if you don't worry about fuel prices as much as most people.
A supercharger will decrease fuel economy. Not sure by how much on a newer vehicle like that. If I remember correctly it will be atleast $1500 for the parts you would need alone.
thanks , I am just trying to increase to 300hp however I am having trouble finding the right combination. There are tons of after market for the mustang 4.6 however I cant find anything on the lincoln 4.6 so It leads me to believe they may interchange? thankstopdogger said:I couldn't honestly tell you when it comes down to a chip.
I like the old saying, "there's no replacement for displacement" and simply love old fashioned raw torque. I don't mind gettings 8mpg. If you ask me its worth it.
Now I think is the point where you have to decide. Do I want to keep my motor under 300HP, do I want to keep it stock or do I want to be racing everyone I see.
With an engine under 300HP you fuel economy won't be that terrible. When you start going over 300 is when it starts getting bad.
I've got a 5.7 with flat top pistons an edelbrock performer intake and a 650 thunder series carb and I get 8mpg when I'm baggin the crap out of my car everywhere I go. That reminds me I haven't tuned my carb yet...
But back on subject. I would say try to keep under 300HP. Unless you are okay with getting poor fuel economy. If you build up more HP you will have more expenses in making your car handle the extra power.
yes most parts do interchange, some electronic chips won't due to ECU diffrencesApollo said:thanks , I am just trying to increase to 300hp however I am having trouble finding the right combination.
