Make 450-750rwhp

 

What differentiates the GT450 kits from everything else on the market? The answer mostly boils down to flexibility and price. The GT450 kits are the only kits that allow you to do everything from a do it yourself (DIY) kit tailored directly to your needs to a complete kit that contains everything you need to get supercharged

 

 

Entry Level Supercharger Kits:

All supercharger kits are entry level kits.

Are you looking for an entry level kit? Will you be running it on a stock shortblock (450rwhp limit)? If so the GT450 kits are probably going to be your best choice. All the kits available will be limited to 450rwhp (the safe limits of your stock motor). The GT450 kits will make that same 450rwhp every other kit does but at a lower price, and that is if you buy a complete kit. If you take the DIY route you can save even more money! There are no performance penalties when running a GT450 kit opposed to the other kits available. None, zero, zilch. In fact, the GT450 kits at 450rwhp perform as good as or better than any other kit available because it has the best intercooler available. And that means cooler running, which translates into more power, more of the time. The GT450 kits have an intercooler that is capable of removing up to 35% more heat than any mass produced kit for the 2005-2010 Mustang GT.

If you’re looking to get blown but not interested in spending the thousands upon thousands of dollars that are required to make more than 450rwhp the GT450 kits are probably you best option. And if you’re looking to make more than 450rwhp they still may be the best option for you.

 

You can custom tailor the kit to your exact desires/needs:

Let’s say that you’re looking to make 450rwhp but you want a few more bells and whistles than entry level kits come with. An example of bells and whistles would be the heat exchanger and intercooler water pump. All entry level kits come with entry level heat exchangers and water pumps. Which give you entry level results. Which are barely adequate. There is a reason that there is a big market in aftermarket heat exchanger and intercooler water pumps. A majority of people that have blowers on their car quickly realize that their entry level kit doesn’t stay as cool as they would like it to and in turn they are down on power (sometime LOTS of power). They then go down the road of upgrading their heat exchanger and water pump. Which means that they bought those components twice. Once when they bought the kit (the ones it came with) and again when they upgraded. With the GT450 you can skip the entry level stuff if you want to and go directly to the top performing components. Which saves you time and money.

Now let’s say you want to make 550+rwhp. First you will need to build a forged shortblock so you don’t chuck your rods out of the motor. But the expense doesn’t stop there. Most of the kits out there include a blower that is capable of making 550rwhp. The problem is that not much else in the kit will be able to get the job done. To make 550rwhp you will need a bigger heat exchanger, better water pump, bigger fuel injectors, more/bigger fuel pump(s), a better drive belt system and tensioner and maybe a bigger mass airflow sensor, throttle body and cold air kit.

If you buy any of the supercharger kits to make 550+rwhp you end upgrading a whole bunch of components. Which means that you bought all those components twice. When going the GT450 route you can get the right components for your goals from the start, so you only buy those parts once.

 

Build It As You Go:

Do you want a blower for your car but can’t afford to plop the whole chunk down at once? And saving up the money never seems to work right? There is always some sort of emergency ready to raid your toy fund? Most of us are in the same boat. One distinct advantage of the GT450 is that you can piece the kit together over time, you don’t have to get the whole thing at once. Another advantage of building you kit over time is because you don’t need your parts “right now” you can search/wait for killer deals to come up on the parts you do need.

 

Reliability and Ease/Cost of Maintenance:

The GT450 kits are incredibly reliable and if something does go wrong inexpensive and easy to fix. The GT450 kits use many, many stock/OEM parts. Most of them GT500 take off components. If you have an issue with other kits on the market you may have to go to the kit manufacturer to get replacement parts. With the GT450 kit you can get most replacement parts as easy as you can get an oil filter.

The Kits:

GT450 Phase I

The GT450 Phase I is the manifold kit. This is the kit you want if you want to build up your own kit around the GT450 manifold.

For detailed information on the GT450 Phase I click here

GT450 Phase III

The GT450 Phase III is a complete kit with everything you need. This kit is for those people that want everything ready to go in one box (well, technically two boxes). If you already have some of the parts to put a system together (a blower for example) but you need everything else this is in the kit this is the kit you want too. Items can be subtracted from the Phase III to suit your specific needs.
