cheap way to add a s/c


Well-Known Member
ok here we go, first you will need to find a used or new vortech headunit. which ever trim you want or find. now you could prob find a shop around here that could rebuild it if it needs rebuild. not a bad thing if it does. also vortech will rebuild em for around $350. so take it that you could have one rebuilt or bought one for under a grand easy.

ok here is where the next part comes in, buyin the tubing and all the parts to make it go on. on the link below is the web site i would buy from, you can buy part for part and that way you don't have to throw down a chite load all at one time.
Vortech Mounting Bracket Assembly for 2003-2004 Ford Mustang MACH 1

Vortech Air Intake Assembly for 2003-2004 Ford Mustang Mach 1

Vortech Discharge Assembly for 1999 & 2001 Ford Mustang Cobra and 2003-2004 Mach 1

Vortech Radiator Pipe Relocation Assembly for 1999-2001 Cobra, 2003-2004 Mach 1

Vortech/Paxton Supercharger Oil for Vortech/Paxton SL Superchargers (3 Pack, of 4oz.)

those are the links to the different parts, another way to make sure you are getting everything is to call vortech get the install manual and make sure you get everything, it will show a picture of the layout of the s/c

there were a couple of things missing, the BOV, belt, spark plugs, maf, fuel injectors, fuel pump. which those won't be hard to find, they have vortech BOV and the piping for it.

now with only wanting 400rwhp you don't have to do a intercooler, you could do a meth injection kit which is around $300 bucks and runs off of windshield fluid.

i believe this is all, but i may have missed a couple of things, overall this is all you need to get your s/c and be about $3K spent

i wrote this up for another mach owner, but you can do this w/ any stang, but thought i would share with ya'll
