just checked with kenne bell and they do offer a supercharger for 91-93 5.0 tbirds, the price is listed at $3299.00 I left them a message regarding a group buy and how much of a discount will be issued if 20 units are purchased, I also sent a few other questions regarding the installation, I know some of us have had issues with the procharger and vortech kits for thunderbirds. I'll post back as soon as I hear anything.

also if anyone is interested in a supercharger for their 91-93 bird tis would be a good time to scoop one up

You will never get twenty people and you won't get even five. Last I heard they dropped the MN12 setup.

Hmmmm i might be a third....But I would have to change out my pistons to lower the compression. Check to see if you get maybe 5 people what kind of discount you can get. 5 People would be way more reasonable because 3 G's is alot to front.

I doubt you will even get a answer from kb. I have spoken to them a time or two and if it's not for a mustang they don't want to talk to you. Your best bet is to never tell them it is for a thunderbird or they are liable to hang up on you or ignore you.

You might have to use a 94-95 mustang kit. I doubt that you could get 5 to get a group purchace. If you get 2-3 you are extreemly lucky. Kb will give you what you are looking for.

I would personaly chose to do a 331 stroker motor with the possability of adding a centrifical supercharger later. I would always do a intercooler possiably a large air to air ic infront of the ac condensor.

actually i think KB wouldn't even be my first choice, unless the price made it attractive

is there a way to use the supercoupe sc on a 5oh? would be easy to find a charger if we could make a lower intake

Then you don't want a KB...they are pretty much whisper quiet. I have timing gears as well, but I can't even hear them over the exhaust

from what i've been told the eaton m90 doesnt flow enuff to suit a 5.0, i played with that idea as well

however there was a guy that had 2x m90s on a 351w and was making some serious torque
