A year ago I put a build thread series on my channel about all of the steps involved in adding a centifugal supercharger to a stock C5 Corvette. Since then I have received a lot of questions and comments from people wondering what it is like to daily drive a 600HP C5. I put together this video as an effort to show the things you will notice after completing single major mod like this.

That's got to be fun to drive. I have a 15 Mustang GT at the moment with advertised 435 crank hp. About ready to pull the trigger on the Roush phase two supercharger kit that's supposed to take it to 727 crank. I can only image what that will feel like. There is a dyno about 45 minutes away so I can do some before and after pulls.

Thank you!! I believe that the Roush kit will produce soo much torque down low that traction will be nonexistent - unless you are at the track with slicks. I would reconsider if it is mainly street driven and look at a turbo or centrifugal SC. Good luck with whichever one you go with!!

You will get stuck on the white lines at intersections a lot lol
I had a chance to get an 14 Mustang GT that was already done. But I wouldnt have been able to bring it to CA so I passed on it.

Thanks for the vid!!

I understand the reasons behind what you are saying but find it more than a little depressing.
