I have a couple of ?'s about this kit. How much power will it make if any over the stock supercharger? How much power did D3's Cts-v make with this supercharger? How much does it cost and is it available for overnight shipping? I asked in another thread and never got answer.

Didn't they use a 3.6L KB on their car?

It would have a ton more power potential than the stock blower and like you I'd like to hear answers to the other questions you asked. The first shop that makes a reasonably priced kit for a KB or Whipple twin-screw for my "V" will get my $$$.

It will make a bunch more power more efficiently over your stock S/C. How much, we don't know yet as it has not been release. It's not available for over night, since it looks like you have to have them instal it.... Good luck and have fun. Wanting to get into the 8's eh? :)

Did you get your tranny worked on yet?

I would be interested in knowing as well. Hopefully, they will see the thread and reply. You may have to speak to them directly to get specifics and pricing.

You may already know this was on their site. Since it is only available for install at their facility, I would assume the price of $9,995 for the 2.8L includes install.

I am assuming there is alot more to this than just slapping it on and tuning. I know 600 is forged but what about trans being the week link.

I will wait a bit until these kits are out and been in service for a while.

Someone needs to make a bullet proof trans to handle this.

Just slapping on a 2.8 KB on the existing motor (no other significant changes) probably won't yield you much of anything, save for low IATs. I believe the camshaft would be woefully saturated with such a large supercharger on it. Anyone opting for this giant supercharger should expect massive/significant changes, if not a complete engine switch (427 anyone?).

Magnasun has a nice 2300 supercharger, which, in my opinion, would be the next logical step.

A 2.8 KB? Good grief...that's just gigantic...

The 2300 Magnason is a waste of money compared to the stock blower. I dought it would make more power than the stock blower. A 2.8 KB is far from to big on a 6.2 litre motor. I know guys running bigger blowers than that on Mustangs with smaller cubes. I would actually like a 3.6 or bigger but it seems like you have to modify your hood to make it fit. I am not changing my hood so the 3.6 is out of the question.

Please explain that comment

With the stock cam and heads? Please point me to a single person who did that...

And I bet you are correct in that it would require a change to the hood---or drop the motor with a change in motor mounts...or, perhaps, a combination of the two

I heard they were going to try and make the 3.6 fit with out any hood mods..... but I just heard that.. not sure if they will..... I wanna see the dyno's for all of those new mod packages they have.... Want to see them actually run, and not just an ad.

Ditto on that comment! Before I drop that kind of cash, I need some to be convinced there will be no issues down the road.
Personally, I am at a point where my car will become uncivil, if I add more power. I want to enjoy getting into it everyday,
without worrying about issues developing. IMO

I agree. I mean I can do the math in stuff and put parts together and say they make x hp, but lets see the results, and real day to day driving.... I mean as anyone out there that cruizes the forums you know there are big hp builds out there and it there are always issues.... lets see these sexy beasts in action :)

A 2.8L Blower is far from too big for our motors (I'm upgrading my 2.3 Whipple with a 2.8H KB on my 4.6L Cobra motor right now). Personally, I think a 3.6L KB might be a perfect match for our cars. I know the shop that assembled the top end of my Cobra motor has been putting those on the SRT8 Mopars for a while now with good results. Unfortunately, none of these blowers would likely fit under the stock hood on a "V".

Even with no changes to the motor, a twin-screw should yield worthwhile gains. Less drag spinning the blower (for given boost level), cooler IAT2's and the ability to efficiently spin it up to 20+ psi would yield big #'s. I'd guess engine and trans. durability would become real concerns at this point though.

Not exactly apples to apples, but years ago with no other changes on my Cobra switching from the stock 1.8L Eaton to a 2.3 Whipple yielded ~100 more rwhp at only 2 more psi:
