Re: Superchargers & Turbos

Listed below are links to various Supercharger and Turbocharger manufacturers.
I do not endorse or guarantee any of them.
I put the links here for member's convenience only.
I concentrated primarily on the units available for the 79-95 Mustangs, but many of the sites offer their products for newer Mustangs as well.
When available the titles in "RED" are linked to articles about that type of forced induction.

Re: Superchargers & Turbos

PREPARING/BUILDING A FACTORY STOCK 5.0/302 FOR FORCED INDUCTION
The following are the steps that I think should be taken and the parts I think should be used whenever you are considering adding forced induction of any kind to your stock 5.0/302 engine.


I know that a lot of people have "gotten away" with doing very little or sometimes nothing to their bottom end and using forced induction. Just remember they are the "exception" to the rule and not the norm. For the best results and longevity you should really consider the modifications and parts recommended.


At very low boost levels, say 5-6 pounds, you probably can get by with all stock components as long as you don't go wild abusing the car. For peace of mind though, follow the recommendations below.


Block Preparation

The block should be properly prepped, machined, cleaned and sonic checked for cylinder wall thickness and core shift. The block deck should be checked for flatness and machined to a suitable surface finish so it will hold a head gasket under the increased cylinder pressures. From what I have researched, the MLS (Multi-Layer Steel) head gaskets, such as the Cometic head gaskets will hold up the best, as long as the deck surfaced is flat and finished properly. Always use new head bolts or studs.


I would also add a Main Support System & Valley Girdle Pro to the engine block assembly to further stiffen and strengthen the relatively weak and flexible 5.0/302 factory block. Another worthwhile block strengthening mod is to replace the side freeze plugs with threaded cast iron pipe plugs. I believe the size is 1 1/4" MIP for the plugs. All that is required is purchasing the 6 plugs and drilling or reaming & tapping out the freeze plug holes.


For better engine oiling, I remove all of the oiling system plugs and oil filter adapter. then I use small sandpaper rolls and lengthened rods to polish the oil passages and round off any sharp corners in the system as best as I can. Polishing the lifter galley of the block and oil return holes therein will help return the oil to the pan faster too. If that is too much trouble you can use Glyptal Engine Sealing Paint to coat the lifter galley and other unmachined surfaces inside the block for better oil return.


Rotating Assembly


The engine rotating assembly is primarily comprised of the pistons, rods and crankshaft. All of these parts should be of good quality and forged components to be able to stand up to the additional stresses of forced induction. A number of Mustangs in the 79-95 year range have forged pistons from the factory, but the rods and crankshafts are of standard cast iron material used in many factory engines. They are not designed for nor were they ever intended to hold up under the rigors of forced induction. The final part that should be upgraded in the rotating assembly is the Harmonic Balancer. To cope better with the forces induced from a belt driven supercharger the factory cast iron balancer should be replaced with a Steel or Billet Aluminum unit.


Note: I am not, nor have I ever claimed to be an expert on this subject. The information presented here is what I have gleaned from researching the subject many times and over many years. I present it to you to be used as a guide and used at your own risk and discretion. I will take no responsibility for any failures or mishaps you may incur. That being said I believe the information I have presented is accurate and reliable as I can make it at this time and I wish you all the best in your modifications and builds.

If anyone sees any mistakes, errors or information that needs updating, please do not hesitate to let me know. You can PM me or post the info in the 79-95 Mustang forums and address it to me. I would also greatly appreciate any further knowledge or experience on this subject that anyone would wish to share.

More horsepower, torque and tire smoke for all,
TH

Re: Superchargers & Turbos

Estimating Flywheel HP after SC or TC Installation

Note: This is just a "rough" estimate and there will be losses due to inefficiencies and air density changes due to the heating caused by compressing the air. However, adding an intercooler will get you closer to the estimated Flywheel HP total.


Formula: 14.7 (1 atmosphere) + Boost Pressure /14.7 x NA HP = Estimated HP After


Examples at 8 psi of boost:

Example 1: 14.7 + 8.0 = 22.7 /14.7 = 1.5442176 x 405 = 625.4 (This is what my car makes now and what I hope to achieve with my Paxton Novi 2000 install.)

Example 2: 14.7 + 8.0 = 22.7 /14.7 = 1.5442176 x 225 = 347.4

Example 3: 14.7 + 8.0 = 22.7 /14.7 = 1.5442176 x 215 = 332.0
