    You can't even buy the parts for $3,500, so I have no idea where you're getting that figure!

    FRPP has two different blowers available for the 2005-2010 Mustang GT's - both made by Whipple. Both are dealer-installed and can be included in the financing of the vehicle.

    I work at a Ford dealership that has already done a couple of blower installs.

    The first one is non-intercooled and rated at 400 flywheel hp. Depending on the finish you choose (black or polished) and the labor rate of the dealership, expect to pay between $6,500 and $7,500. Your factory powertrain warrany is reduced to 12 months or 12,000 miles, whichever comes first.

    The other blower is intercooled and rated at 500 or 550 flywheel hp (depending on application). Expect to pay about $1,500 to $2,000 more for this kit over the 400 hp kit (parts and labor are both higher). That means it'll likely cost about $8K to $9K for this blower to be installed at a typical Ford dealership. This blower comes with absolutely no powertrain warranty and is not suggested for automatic transmissions.

    Not all dealers will be willing and/or able to install these. And pricing can vary a bit from dealer to dealer, but the ranges I quoted above should net the dealers a couple hundred bucks in profit, so there's not a lot of discounting available.

    While it's cool to say that your new supercharged GT is "stock" because it came with a FRPP designed, dealer installed blower, there are actually lots of good aftermarket blowers on the market for similar or less money.

    With 3.73 package, mid 13's.

    With Track Pack, low 13's.

    With 4.10's and slicks, high 12's.

    The above is assuming the same driver with skill to get this Pony where it needs to be.

    i work for a ford dealer locally, and had the oppurtunity to talk to one of the roush reps today. the roush blower is available as an upgrade for 4999, and another 500-800 for the install/ecu reflash (this came from the ford rep, my service department told me they would do the install and ecu for a little under 400 but thats for my labor rate). also the roush put down 404whp in 95 degree heat and 68% humidity according to the rep with only 6lbs of boost... seems like an affordable blower to me that would still yeild some warranty(3 yrs/ 36k miles)

    If it doesn't have a RPO code, then it's not a factory option. If you want to play that game, GMPP (General Motors Performance Parts) has plenty of things available for the Camaro, too.

    The Camaro had been built in Canada since the 1993 model.

    I took a 2010 Mustang GT to the scale I weighed my 2005 Mustang GT at. Comparing it to my stock full weight Mustang GT, the new car is 84lbs heavier and that was with roughly half a tank of gas. Having driven both, I get the feeling that the older GT will be slightly faster.

    I see the new GTs hitting the mid 13s - 13.50s like the old 05-09 GTs with a good driver, most will be 13.80s 90s. Dont compare what Evan ran with what the average joe runs. Evan ran a 12.85 in a bone stock 99 SS LS1. Hes a BEAST and the best out there.

    ... and also comes standard with what the Bullitt model does, expect them to run slightly faster than a "normal" pre-'10 GT.

    I don't like to magazine race, but the tests done so far on the 2010 Mustang GT and comparing them to the tests done on the 2005 Mustang GT. The 2005 Mustang GT is slightly faster...
