Welcome and congrats on the Shelby score!

My advice would be to drive the car as is for a stint… get used to boosted life. Once you’ve tamed the stock beast, then add power. KB 3.2 is a fantastic blower! A buddy of mine had it on his 2012 and loved it. He later sold the car. It hauled ass though.

I have a 2.8 KB on mine with a 3” pulley. I like it, Whipple are good too can’t go wrong with either. I go with the best deal.

Welcome to the site, congrats & good luck with the 08.
I was introduced to Whipple, ( 2.9 ) on my 2011, via an FRPP kit.

When it came time to upgrade my 14, I went back to Whipple again..( 3.4 )
Very nice !!!
Congratulations on the new ride Devin. That's one clean '08. Looks like it was well maintained. Welcome to the forum.

The 5.0 doesn’t hang in the same zip code as the GT500. These cars are on another level. Enjoy your car and drive like hell 😂
