    That's not a supercharger, that's a scam. A legit supercharger will run you $3,000-$5,000 . You will get zero HP gains with that thing, you'll probably actually lose power.

    Contrary to what James D mentioned the 4.6L isn't particularly fragile. I've had a Kenne Bell supercharger on my 2003 Mustang GT for around 65k miles now, and haven't had any problems with it.

    The stock 4.6 had very fragile parts.it would destroy it.the gains in hp wouldn't be even close to being worth it.i have a 1998 f150 with the 4.6.it is a long bed with a cab and extended cab.not a light weight by any means and it has plenty of power to merge onto a fast moving interstate etc.i don't see what your problem might be.i also tow a 3000 pound trailer with it 5000 when loaded.no problems.if you just want a hot rod to blow up then buy an old 5.0 fox mustang for 2000.its way cheaper than a supercharger.

    Zero. That thing's a toy meant only to get $23 from suckers.
