I'm starting to look at doing time trials and a lot of the class guides don't differentiate between the 05-09 and the 11-14 mustangs and some of them make me step up to classes with much more powerful cars because of my wheel and tire combo. My car is in a weird spot - it's heavy and has a large displacement engine so it ends up getting classed with modern muscle cars with a lot more power. I also want to start adding COTA to my regular HPDEs and all the people I've talked to say it really favors faster cars and in current form mine maxes out about 110mphWhat, did you think you could slip this one in and no one would notice? Come now. Why did you decide to go this route? Not knocking, just always curious.
As I went through the long list of power adders for the 3v, it looked to me like a supercharger is the easiest way to add a lot of torque and HP in a predictable fashion. I've read a few articles and watched some youtubes of people trying to get a 3V with bolt-ons alone and it looks like if you manage to get the right combination you can add about 100 but that looked expensive, complicated and failure prone and some things like LTHs might make getting state inspections difficult. Supercharger and turbocharger builds get good numbers by default and are mostly dealing with the aftermath of too much heat or power.
DOB has really good cooling options that were recommended by some of the local engine builders. I like that their kit is made up of GT500 parts with upgraded components where needed and their cooling solutions are detailed really well and well thought out. DoB has really good articles and Jason's been really helpful in answering all my questions. I'm going with their lowest HP solution with their strongest intercooler option (30GPM). I may regret it but I'll only find out by trying it. I've never owned or built a forced induction vehicle so no matter what I'll learn a lot along the way.
