    Hey Guys,
    Seems like there are numerous 350's that are supercharged. Since I plan on doing the same, I'm interested to see what brand your running, boost level, fuel type, supporting mods if any, hp levels, how long you've been running the kit & mileage and if you experienced any issues.

    Also do any of you feel that adding a supercharger would de-value the car - in this case it would be an R.
    Thanks....

    Driving the car devalues it. If you've already driven it just enjoy it the way the Shelby himself would have wanted it. To be driven.

    Bah. Drive the car the way YOU want to. Adding a blower is not going to do anything to the car that your everyday driving will do in value. Doing F/I on the 350 can be a lot of fun. I first bought my 17 thinking I would do twins...Then I did LT's and tune. Its a lot of fun as it stands. But honestly I have to fight the urge to toss a Procharger or such on the car...

    Man I need a project..

    Subbed.....same as OP, looking to boost this year. Have done a lot of reading, would be nice to hear from boosted owners on the pro's and con's if any! Maybe something you would do differently, or would have done first.

    Thanks guys!

    I'm still working on mine. I'm 75% complete. It's not a daily driver and I've had a ton of other stuff going on this new year so its slow going. Plus I did the OPG/CS at the same time. Big job.

    2017 Gt350, Whipple Gen3, 3.75 pulley, Kooks Longtubes, Magnaflow catback, Snow meth injection, 9-11PSI 800-835rwhp depending on dyno. Put the blower on at 2k miles, now have over 12k and absolutely zero issues.

    Pros- it is an absolute destroyer of souls on the freeway from a 60 roll. The supercharger just made the car better everywhere. Like Barry Bonds on steroids

    Cons- None really, Ive been completely happy with the supercharger.

    I've got a GT350 that Fathouse Twin Turbo'd for me. The car is simply incredible with 1318 whp. I would highly recommend Fathouse to anyone that it considering Turbo's or supercharging their car. I went back and forth with the Whipple before deciding on the turbo route. I have other TT cars and a Demon, Hellcat and Cobra Jet with Whipples and they're also big fun, and high quality. Definitely, at a minimum change out the OPG/CS.

    I would love to have the Fathouse setup..but man..it's costly. The 800 boost package is 20k.....That would be on top of getting my car from FL to Indiana.
