The series 2 GM engines are built from the start to be supercharged, and the superchargers they use aren’t running all that much pressure.
Aftermarket performance parts of any kind rarely increase the reliability of a vehicle. Head bolts, beearing caps, etc… will always have limits. On your car GM shipped it out the door knowing that the whole drive train from the connecting rods to the drive axles would be fine for a long time with the amount of power that engine makes, with the amount of pressure it’s supercharger churns out from the factory because they engineered every last detail of it to be sure that it would.
If you doubled your boost with an after market supercharger, and increased your engine’s power output by 100 horse though I garentee things would start breaking (if not in the engine, in the transmission).[/quote]
Good thing the Cobra isn’t GM and is a Ford. [/quote]
That was all directed at the dude with the front wheel drive Pontiac. Your Mustang is slightly more hotrod mod friendly.[/quote]
Doesn’t matter if the 3800 series II was developed from the start to be supercharged. ANY car will start breaking down if you don’t add supporting mods (exhaust/tranny/ect) before you start adding hp.
What do you mean by more hot rod mod friendly? Other than being a pony car the only thing the the Mustang has over GPs is the sheer amount of aftermarket support. It’s the American Civic.
But I digress, OP check out those forums the other guys posted for ya and do your research before you drop that kind of cash.
