When adding a supercharger and gaining say about 100 torque on the car , how noticeable is that much torque in the drive? And when do you feel/notice it the most?

It depends on the supercharger. In general, you will definitely notice 100lbs of torque, that is nearly a 20% increase. But the Coyote engine is small displacement, so max torque normally occurs at higher rpms. A centrifugal supercharger would increase the torque mostly at higher rpms. The positive displacement (twin screw, TVS and Roots) superchargers increase torque delivery at lower rpms; much more noticeable.

Id take 100hp instead.
Horsepower is a derived figure...

100 more ft-lbs at 6000 rpm is 114 HP. You only need about 88 ft-lbs at the same rpm to get 100 HP. PD superchargers tend to evenly increase torque across the rev range. With a high-revving engine like the Coyote, that means more HP as the revs climb.

Ok.......I'll still take the hp if you got any. For example....ill take the low torque/high hp coyote over a pretty even hp/torque of your scatpack.:wink:

Methinks you missed the point...and that I also have a Mustang...

Adding a 100 ft-lbs. across the rev range nets more than 100 HP on the Coyote (133 at 7k RPM).

Methinks too many mustang owners spend too much time calculating rather than racing. "how does something feel" is irrelevant as everyone's opinion will differ. The question should be more like "how fast have guys gone with 550-600whp in boosted coyotes".

Coyotes55086: 100 lb. ft. Is very noticeable. If you are considering a blower, my advice is to stop considering and start installing...you will LOVE it!

100 ft-lbs will definitely be noticeable but it will be delivered differently depending on the specific power adder. Positive displacement will punch immediately and continue throughout the rev range, centrifugal will come on later (after 3k) and continue on from there in a linear fashion. Turbos are different story.
