Reische 170 TStat and NGK plugs for me. You'll enjoy it for sure.

I am glad I never did the 3:55 gear swap. I read that 3:15's were better for FI in terms of traction.

No..they don't.

They will still require a return fuel system even if I will only be running pump 93? I don't have immediate access to E85.

you going to have to prepare for more money than just a supercharger kit cost only. I used to have one of those 1998 mustang gt back in the day and it got about 70k miles like you. I decided to put in a vortech supercharger to get some more power. I did my research and ask a lot of people. long story short, it blew a head gasket 2 weeks later. I replace it with a better motor and it cost pretty good. sometimes later, drive shaft seal and the gear broke a teeth. that is another few grand cause I upgrade to a better one.

Therefore, If you go fi, just be prepare stuff going to break earlier than expect.

This is not a 2v 4.6. At 600hp the Coyote engine isn’t even working. That’s like a light jog for a gen2 coyote even at 150,000 miles. These engines stock are capable of 1,000hp. There are 2018s making 1000+ on pump 93 and before anyone gets all huffing and puffing here is the proof

I am well aware of the risks of modifying my car. But based on research I have seen my power goals are well within the limits of the motor. If I am not mistaken the Roush Stage 1 puts out similar numbers on their tune.

I was leaning more towards the HO kit with the P1x or P1SC blower.
Get a Griptec SC pulley. This will allow you to greatly reduce the needed belt tension to keep traction on the pulley, which helps reduce the tension on everything the belt touches, especially the Crankshaft.

I also heard that Procharger updated their kit to relocate the maf sensor. Can anyone confirm this?
