    Awesome Pete, thanks a lot. I'll add that in.

    As for the rest of it, if you have anything that should be added/removed from my write-up, please let me know.

    good job on the writeup Ryan.

    i was just reading through it and saw a part about the intercooler bolts. sucks huh, how procharger would give you these bolts that are about 1 full inch too long and then expect you to be able to get something in the bumper there to hold them while you turn a nut on em. they send some idiot fasteners with their kits lol.


    but wierd part is, i got a wrench in there and installed those bolts where they were suppose to be on Brian00Stang's car lol. it was a PITA, but it only took me 5 minutes.

    Hey Ryan, just thought I'd add a little sumpin' to your post in reference to the longetivity of engine life with a blower. I remember reading in the book "Supercharged" by Corky Bell that he said a supercharger will cut an engine's life by about 10% assuming you installed everything correctly and drive sanely most of the time. I don't know if you can put a number on something like this, but just thought I'd share. :)

    What are the differents from the V-2 to the SQ-2?? I got a SQ-2 vortec sitting in my garage and half way installed waiting to finish the install next weekend. Also where could i find a transmission rebuild kit to hold up to 600 hp? Also a built 7.5 rearend hold the power off a V6. Also is the BBK 70 mm throttle body worth it on supercharger?



    SQ-2 vortec
    long tube mac headers, shorty H, flowmaster Duals,
    DTS built 7.5 rearend
    spec stage 3 clutch and flywheel
    2 inch drop
    Black widow bodykit/Hood
    Cobra R spoiler/Rims
    SSBC brake upgrade.

    The difference in the v1 and v2 was posted in the sticky above. Check out the "pros" of the Vortech.

    I don't know where to get a tranny built, try a google search to answer that one.

    Never heard of anyone having a "built" 7.5. I think because you can get an 8.8 for $650 or less and it has a TLok built in it from the factory.

    Not sure on the throttle body, but I doubt it will help much if at all. Good luck on the install. Let us know how it goes!

    ABS is optional on all V6s. You could opt fo the ABS/trac control package when you bought your stang. If you don't know whether or not you have ABS, check your instrument panel to see if there is an ABS that lights up and goes away after a short while. Either that or take her out and slam on the brakes...HARD. ;)
    EDIT: I just noticed that you have a 96, not sure if ABS was offered on the V6 back then.

    I have a 95 and my insurance says I have ABS. I have some sort of discount because of it and I just noticed a few months ago when I renewed my insurance. Before that though, I was sure my car didn't have it. I've hit my brakes hard before and the wheels seems to always lock up and I slide a little. Also, I don't have any ABS lights that light up. Maybe my systems broken, or maybe I just don't have it and my insurance is giving me that discount anyway.

    Back to the supercharger thread. I've read about Speedkillz kit and Tuxmasters Turbo kit both recommending sticking with the stock rear end gears. Something to do with boost building or something. Is having a 3.73 or 4.10 in the rear good with the Vortech and Procharger?

    Well, 1st gear even with 3.27s is about worthless without excellent traction (sticky tires, LCAs, TLok, etc..), so they probably just don't recommend 3.73+ for that reason. It would just be that much worse.

    I bet 2nd with 3.73s kicks major butt though!

    I didn't think ABS was available on V6s until 98 or 99.
