    My money will be on the new revised design Whipple 3L supercharger. Mirrors our own supercharge Harrop/FPV manifold. except it comes with an intercooler. something that we didn't get to see happen.

    Comes with its own software tuning cutting the middle man Herrod.

    The Harrop/Miami way:


    “The 2018 Mustang proposed multiple packaging problems,” Whipple Superchargers Vice President Dustin Whipple said. “The first issue was the implementation of the direct-injection system. This took critical space in the valley of the block where we made such tremendous gains on the previous year. At the same time, the hood line dropped, posing a potential issue with hood clearance with the supercharger drive pulley.”

    “We had a few options to deal with the direct-injection system and packaging around it. We could shrink the intercooler core nearly 60 percent to fit, along with smaller passages, thus creating extra back pressure, increased temps, and overall performance loss, or we could go upside down and retool everything,” Dustin said. “We decided that using a top mount posed no advantage, in fact it was a disadvantage because of the small intercooler, small plenum area (above and below), and restricted packaging.”
    That’s right, rather than limiting the system’s performance to conform to traditional packaging constraints, Whipple did a stranger thing. The company took its traditionally top-mounted blower to the upside down. Because the boost definitely likes it cold, Whipple mounted the new 185-cubic-inch, twin-screw blower in the valley underneath a new larger intercooler.

    Rated at 700Hp @the crank I would say that's a relatively conservative tune and boost level. With forged internals, that motor even with higher compression should remain durable and reliable. Going on the bum-o-metre of the Roush kitted 2017 Mustang I have experienced there was alot of driveline protection mapped into the tune. Power was linear and came in more like a turbo, unlike any positive displacement supercharged car I have driven where the torqe pull was almost immediate. The worst part was the how the auto was matched to the blown tune, or should I say it seemed like it hadn't been. I hope that with the new 10 speed auto FP have made some improvements with this regard.

    Yep.

    When you look at the relative coarseness and crudeness of the aftermarket kits, you appreciate the amazing packaging and engineering feat that is Miami.

    And it shits me to tears when people call it a supercharged Coyote.
