Well, make it $42K then. Still a smokin deal for a new car that runs 10's, has most needed creature comforts, and will be damn reliable. .

Here is my car costs. That new car is about 3 grand more than my 14 was.
My car is probably about 100 lbs lighter than new one's, but new one's can take way more boost (power) than gen 1's.

14 GT (auto as only option)-------- $27, 529

305/35-18 MT STREET S/S DR--$629.90
AMR -18X10 and 18X8 RIMS ---$559.96 (used stock 235's up front)
UPR X-pipe------------------------$259.46
Roush Stg 3 TVS------------------$6199.99
SCT tuner and VMP tune---------$712.64
Octane boost----------------------$59.98
Roush upper control arm---------$253.95
Roush alum lower control arms---$200.00
Lightweight battery/terminals-----$120.25

Total---------------------------------$8996.13

Free stuff-------
Removed spare/jack/trunk carpet
Homemade rear seat delete (cardboard and some black fabric)
Removed mats

Total--------------------------------- $36.525.13

Nice build.

Indeed. If a shop is going to install everything above, double the numbers above (minus the vehicle cost). While installing a screw style supercharger isn't rocket science, if you aren't careful, there's a lot of things that could go wrong. Nice work on installing all that yourself.

Of course, if you don't wrench, will have to compare closer to factory offerings.
Then again for $44K, auto, 3 yr warantee and CARB cert........ https://www.lebanonfordperformance.com/2020-supercharged-mustang-for-42495/

Just have to prioritize straight line speed over cornering and doodads, but these new stangs, even in base GT trim, handle and brake pretty good (without PP1 even).

and this is why someone will do the swap. with these types of numbers, I could really see this replacing the 460 in many engine swap applications.
Agreed. Hell, it's going to replace 351w/stroker swaps as well.

I'm considering for my 71 mach 1 instead of a 460 stoker, and also replacing the 460 stroker in my 82 bronco when the time comes. If it weren't for the fact that I enjoy the simplicity of the carbed 351W and C6 in my daily driver 86 bronco, I'd consider it there too.

Does anyone on this thread remember this is a S550 forum? :facepalm:

Oh never mind, carry on. :like:
yes, but I think we can all agree by now that the only people who will swap a 7.3 into a S550 are those with money to burn and looking for car that ONLY sees the drag strip.

Curious how heavier a 7.3 is compared to a Coyote (both manual or auto). With an iron block, my guess is north of 100, but let's see :).

Apples to apples it was ~130lbs heavier. The CG however should be a fair bit lower though in the 7.3L.

how much does a Whipple s/c kit weigh and for comparison a twin turbo setup ?

I'm still not impressed/don't get it...FOR A MUSTANG APPLICATION SPECIFICALLY.

But it's nice to see that if someone wanted to supercharge their F250 Tremor for instance, that could be a compelling package. Or if someone wanted to resto-mod an old F100, that would be pretty cool too.

Is the Godzilla cast iron or compacted graphite iron? If it's CGI, that's usually a 20% weight savings but a block housing 7.3L is a LOT of material.
