Affordable blowers

Hey was just wondering if anyone makes a affordable blower for the 302. I am talking something along the lines of what rpcaster has for the 4.0.

I haven't seen any kits like the RPCaster for the 302, but On3Performance does make a cheap turbo kit that is supposed to be pretty good.

Your gay for not understanding that you don't need to do that. Run a small turbo. It will spool at 1500rpm. Done. Cheaper, easier, more efficient, better gas mileage. Why the heck would you NOT run a turbo?

I'm pretty sure you can find some affordable blowers on just about any corner at the right time.

sorry but "affordable" and "blower" just dont belong in the same sentence. What id look into is something along the lines of a Procharger, its small wont hit the hood, can be had at a good price.

check ebay, usually you can get kits for cheaper.... and StrangerRanger is right about the turbos.... they are a bit more efficiant...if they were not why would more and more cars start getting them.....

Start going through the mustang forums classified sections. I see supercharger for 1500 and under on a regular basis.

Because if something goes wrong its going to be BIG. With the constant heat and cool downs turbos will essentially lose their settings as it were, fins can bend, housings can crack, BOV can be stuck closed and probably the biggest reason why we dont see more is because there are so many retarded people out there that they think just because they want to save some money and that all gas is the same they will run 87 octane instead of 93 and will pretty much kill the motor. There is just too many stupid out there for turbos on gas engines. Now if we were in England-land a turbo diesel vw or anything along that matter would be fine.
