    The Supercharger is just half the cost. Injectors, spark plugs, tune, chip, clutch, flywheel, Maf calibration or new maf, fuel pump or boost a pump just to get your car running. :cheers:

    Was that one heck of an "install" charge? Isn't the ATI 8# 3 core kit pretty complete (with chip)...for about $4100? And being that you had it "tuned" shouldn't it have been less when you figure in the *chip delete* price?

    I paid $4900 for my Supercharger but a lot of the other parts that you mention aren't an "option" for my application. I did opt for the Cool air kit, 90mm meter, Big tube and 75mm TB though for about $900 extra.

    I was sitting around $5500 for the polished(polished is $650 more than the regular) KB + all accessories(90mm MAF, Big Tube/Cool air kit, etc). Oh and that includes the $100 set of Denso Iridium spark plugs. I had a pretty savvy friend do the instal for me for $200 :nice:


    Being able to play with modified 03/04 Cobras from a stoplight.. PRICELESS :lol:

    Get a KB and get away from the ugly plastic intake manifold. And with a Twin Screw (or even a Roots blower) ...it doesn't look like you're runnining some sort of funky dual AC system under the hood. :rolleyes:

    polished ATI P1SC w/intercooler +MAF,Cobra Fuel Pump,42#inj($4700) installation($1000) tune( $500) I went to "the shop to go to" and got a hack job that had to be re-tuned and a few other damaged parts replaced(went to Kauffmans for the retune). It cost more than the stated price.BE REAL SELECTIVE when choosing a performance shop. If you can handle their price & the job gets done correctly the 1st time,you got your monies worth.

    KB's just look awesome. Even figuring in the price, performance potential and all the other reasons for even considering a centrifugal supercharger...I wouldn't even think about putting one in a pre-2005 4.6 Mustang. The messy stock style intake and upper intake are just an eyesore deluxe. That's why I chose the KB - the 2005 is a different story and on that pretty thing...I would put a centrifugal charger on it. JMO.

    I dunno....I think xseler8 and White Stang's set up looks every bit as sexy as the KB. Besides, looks are subjective. In the end, it's still a lot of dough to spend for a "pretty" looking blower, even if it does perform well.
