Superchargers available for 4.6

Just wanted to make a website list of common supercharger "kits"available for your 4.6L Thunderbird or Cougar.
**Note: Most of these don't come to you as complete kits, but require some fabrication to make them work...these are marketed toward the Mustang crowd.

Allen Superchargers (AED) - Now defunct
Ford Racing parts/SVO - You can contact the Preferred Vendor for TCCoA or other vendors that have treated our members well.

Tork Tech
Kenne Bell
Vortech
Procharger
Paxton/Novi

Again, only the AED and FRPP/SVO came/come at "kits", per se. All other will require some imagination and ingenuity.
As always, these kits make their way to Ebay, so you might be able to find a deal on a used "kit".

A man may smile and bid you hail
Yet wish you to the devil;
But when a good dog wags his tail,
You know he's on the level.

I have a Vortech supercharger on my 96, but I would highly reccomend a roots style blower for a daily driver. - Either an Allen or a KB.
The problem with centrifical superchargers is that it makes all of its power high up.
I don't start making boost until 3500 rpm's, while this is ok with a high stall tq converter,
the supercharger doesn't throw you back in your seat like it should.

Current rides: 09 CTS-V (went to dark side) & GSXR-1000

There are a few with AED's.
The difference between a pre-96 installed AED and a 96-97 is that you have to upgrade a few parts in order to get it up to snuff for the install. See AED's website for the details or do a search. It's here, too.

This supercharger I stumbled upon on ebay looks a bit over simplified, would it work for our vehicles or is it a waste of $, I don't plan on a supercharger anytime soon but I thought I'd look around a bit and start doing homework

I've been running that charger for 90,000 miles on my bird. Great unit as long as you understand it's limitations. Took 8 hours to install including dropping the tank for the new fuel pump

Vortech will be the easiest to install out of any of the other superchargers.

You can do it, but you need to cut the hood in order to get it to fit.

The KB is not a full kit, even for the Mustang. I've heard that if you call KB and ask for a GT kit and you mention that you want to put it on your Thunderbird, they'll laugh and hang up.
Now one person here has done it...Bullittbird. It takes a lot of custom fab work and way more money than your probably want to spend on a forged motor and other goodies.

through the grape vine i suppose. not too long ago they were up for sale as listed on their site. i seem to remember a thread where several reputable people were talking about it. supposedly they stopped answering their formerly listed phone number a couple weeks back. maybe i should have said "im almost positive they are out of business". ask 95Silverbird, i believe he knows whats up.
