Starting a new project on the GT500. I bought myself a slightly used Ford Racing TVS supercharger. ;) Couldn't pass it up for the price that I paid. Was going to get a Whipple or Kenne Bell, but what the guys are getting out of these babies is pretty impressive. Same about of HP as the other blowers at 18lbs and under but with more torque. Above 18lbs the others just pass it out. I never plan on running race gas so this guy is perfect for what I want. Plus they just drop right in, no need to drop the motor or dent the firewall to make it fit. Of course I can't leave the TVS alone. It is going to be ported and I am debateing sending it out for a show polish finish. B)


Here is the engine bay before I start.

Nice little TVS as I got it. Came with a 2.6" pulley from VMP. It also arrived with a Ford Racing 63mm throttle body and 113mm Ford Racing Mass Air meter. I sold those to help recoup some funds from the purchase, plus they are too small for what I want. :D

Posted Image

My VMP ported elbow and Tasca Racing L&M 72mm throttle body. Going on the new TVS.

Posted Image

Here is the intake of the TVS. Marked out to port for the VMP D-shaped elbow. I will be port matching them.

Posted Image

Here is the inside of the stock supercharger. See how much smaller the inside of the blower is compared to the TVS. :)

Much more to come..................

New toy arrived the other day. Innovators West 10% lower crank pulley. What a piece of artwork. ;)

Also torn down the blower and port matched it to the D-shaped elbow. Ready to go. Still on the fence for a show polish. Received a price from Mirror Finish Polishing and it wasn't bad.

I'm SO glad I spent the extra $300 for my *polished* Whipple 2.9L when I pulled the trigger.

It looks SO nice vs. the black version and at only $300 more, it was a no-brainer.

I gotta tell you, that big hunk of polished aluminum really grabs people's atttention when they take a look under the hood. It's the "Center Piece" of my engine bay.

I haven't had it dyno'd yet. I have a couple of choices up here in Co. Springs and Denver so I *will* at some point, just to satisfy my curiousity.

I have a friend (former racing adversary) in San Jose CA that has a dyno and I've already contacted him for when I get the car "back home" to get a Sea Level dyno too.

The Ford Racing numbers are *very* accurate so I'm satisfied that I have AT LEAST 750 at the crank, then add a few for the headers and open exhaust system.

But then take 20% away from that due to the thin air!

I'd just be guessin' if I gave you a number but I'm GUESSING about 765 crank HP and around 550-600 HP at the rear wheels. Again because of the thin air (almost a 20% loss @ 6000' altitude and then another 15% parasitic loss on top of that (transmission drag/rear gear drag/PS pump/Alternator/water pump/clutch slippage/etc).

I'm thinking *corrected* HP should be around 650 HP at the rear wheels (REALISTICALLY!), if not just slightly higher.

Regardless, it's a LOT. More than the tires can handle so any more would just be wasted (what isn't wasted already).

Your right Phil, I had a polished Kenne Bell on my 03 Cobra and I loved it. I am sending out the TVS this weekend to get polished. A polished blower is like a fine piece of jewelry on top of the motor. They want $600 to polish it now. Too bad they don't offer it on the TVS's.

you're gonna be over 18psi with the IW pulley and VMP 2.6. i peaked 18.8psi and held 18.3psi from 4k up. once the temp dropped i dynoed at 19.3psi this Oct. i have headers and no cats and still hit that boost. that was in low 60 degree weather. when my motor popped on the first sub 55 degree day i was over 20.psi. just a heads up, we get shitty gas in the North East. CT as well as NY passed a law allowing for up to 15% ethanol in the winter gas in April 2011. the gas stations do not have to put up a sticker stating it's 15%. the EPA required a sticker stating 2001 and newer cars can use the E15, but stations haven't been doing so and the states aren't enforcing it. you will be on the edge with 93oct. enjoy the blower,

Thanks for the heads up. I will pick up a larger upper pulley just in case. Tasca should have those in stock being it is one of their swappable setup (taken from my stock blower). I am running a full 3" Bassani exhaust from the manifolds back. I was hopeing that would cut down the boost enough. The guys on other forums told me I would be at 18. Better knowing from you, real world and in my area. Thanks again.

Thank you for posting your current project. I have been trying to figure out what blower is on my car and it sure looks exactly like the one you are swapping out. I recently purchased a 2007 40th that is well documented except for the blower. I know it was upgraded, but don’t know what blower or what else might have been replaced. I would really like to know, but not tech savy enough to know exactly what to look for.
Keep those pics and descriptions coming!

Had a little spare time today so I tore off the stock supercharger. That was wayyyyy to easy. Think it took about 30 minutes. I was used to working on my 03 Cobra, that was a pain on that car. Also sent out the TVS for show polish. Can't wait till that comes back in about 4 weeks. Add a little show under the hood. :)

Sure looks like a TVS to me.
Freedom exists because there are men and women willing to do terrible things to those who would threaten it.

It is the Marines, Soldiers, Sailors and Airmen who salute the flag, who serve beneath the flag, and who's coffins are draped by the flag, that allow the protester to burn the flag.

I'm not a Shelby guy, I'm not a Mustang guy, I'm not a Camaro or Chevy guy, and I'm not a Dodge guy. I'm a car guy. I don't care what the fender says, if it looks cool, is fast and fun to drive, It can be called a Poo-master 1000 for all I care. I'll still like it.

Yup, that's a FRPP TVS with the 113mm intake.

Probably the full kit with their tuner. Nice ride you have. Must move pretty good.

Very fortunate to have found such a sweet ride. It flat hauls, if you can keep the tires under it. I have had a few stock GT’s 1983, 1999 and 2000. Simply amazing what SAI and Ford have been able to put together.

So based on the photos, it looks like the upgrades are. . .

FRPP TVS (any idea of HP?) Not sure of install date, think it was prior to 40th conversion in 2008
FRPP 113mm CAI
Tuner??? Not sure, I have not found it if it should still be with the car. Possibly tuned at SAI during conversion

Notice anything else?

Curious if any other components were changed out during blower upgrade, pulleys, dampener, throttle body etc.

Thanks again to all giving feedback

pony23 - Really like those red valve covers. Keep those pics coming. Those of us not having the stones to tear our motors down appreciate those pics.

Hey did you ever get this back polished?

I'm thinking of doing the same thing, although $600 is a bit steep for me so I'm really on the fence about it.

Are you curious to look in the intercooler to see if there are signs of oil buildup?

I ended up getting rid of the TVS just before I finished the install. Got a great deal on a 2.9 whipple. Also sold the 2008 and bought a 2010 GT500 which now has the Whipple on it. Put down about 680rwhp and the thing is a monster on the street.

So take it you like the Whipple better then the TVS setup?

The whipple definitely looks waayyyyyy meaner than the TVS. It would probably be at the same power level right now. If I ever wanted to turn up the boost I have some wiggle room now.

I ran the stock clutch on my 08 and it was still fine. Not sure if the TSB was done on it.

The stock clutch is still doing fine on the 10 also. I am not a drag racer so there haven't been any launches or really sticky tires on it.

I ran a TVS on my '10 for 15k miles, and I didn't baby it. Not a whimper from the clutch. Definitely the best I've driven so far.
