    I was in the middle of doing the top end on my mostly stock 1995 GT 5.0L 5 speed manual. I saw a nice vortech v2 s trim supercharger for sale and thought maybe I should supercharge my car as well as do the top end. I have the GT40P heads and trickflow intake. I want to know what cam I should run if I supercharged it with this blower. F303? Others? Also, what other mods would I need to do if I ran this supercharger at say 6-8psi. I know probably 42lb injectors. Anything else I dont really know. Maf? Fuel pump? Any and all help will be so much appreciated.

    42lb injectors and a pro m maf bigger fuel pump ... I would run 10lbs right from the start ... You will get bored in 5 days at 6-8psi

    f303 will work fine or a even a tfs1 I run a comp 282hr

    ^I like all this. ha.
    I run a 255 lph fuel pump, 42lb injectors, and a Pro-M MAF, and I switched to a 12lb pulley off the bat..

    To the OP, have you already upgraded your throttle body? with the larger intake manifold and heads, you would benefit from a 65-70mm throttle body.

    get 42# right away, you won't regret it. you'll need a tune too. as far as the boost level, you can always put a smaller pulley on later. i'd rock the stock pulley until you get used to the new power level and are more comfortable with the setup.

    i rocked a f303 for years before my 331. it was a decent cam, but there are betters out there. i like my anderson blower cam.

    I am in the process of doing the same. Got a v3 for my 95 gt. Done a ton of research and seems like 42# injectors, pro m maf or lightning maf, 255 in tank fuel pump and a tune is the way to go. Oh and I have also been recommended a clutch upgrade. Doing a spec stage 2.

    Doing something similar to my 95 cobra. Kept the motor stock except for the Steeda # 19 cam/42lbs FPPR injectors/ 90mm lightning MAF/ 255 walbro in tank and 190 T rex inline pumps/better valve springs/retainers/seals/ Ford Racing timing chain/Vortech V2 with AMS Power pipe/ ford racing headers/ BBK h pipe with Borla cutback. Waiting to get it tuned now.
