Flow tubes on supercharged cars

Just wonder who is all running a flow tube with a slot style maf sensor on supercharged cars. Wondering what your tuner thoughts were about running them and if they were easier to tune. Thanks

All 05+ mustangs have slot style sensors from the factory. There are a ton of cars making 800+rwhp with the stock MAF sensor and Kenny belle has their boss making over 1000rwhp with the blowzilla kit. Running 8.89 in the 1/4 on 20s with the stock MAF. No need for an upgrade

Yessir, but when you have full suspension with coil overs, little weight loss, aluminator motor, 3.6LC Kenny belle @18psi, long tubes and full exhaust, with a 100 shot on top of it all.

Yeah I just don't know how they get traction with nt05rs at that power level. Pretty impressive.

My best guess was that they were really hot from having over 1000hp spinning them.

I have a set of 305/45R18s hanging out in my garage ... waiting for some nice weather to test them out.

They hook hard on the street. I imagine they will hook really well at my power level on a prepped track.

My only concern is drivetrain shock with the drag radials and manual.

Definitely going to have to bring your driving skills. Otherwise your going to bog down or spin out and nose dive on the shifts. First time I went out in my 5.0 I shifted horribly (with the stock shifter), and it cost me a 13.40. Second run was a 12.89 so it makes a huge difference.

Definitely. I've only been drag racing once so I need some driver mod. The boss manifolds exaggerates the bog or spin issue too.

Anyways. Sorry for the thread derail...

To say that they wear really fast is an understatement. I would expect around 8k miles on the street if you're nice to them. They do have a 0 UTQG rating after all. That's the price to pay though, softer rubber = more traction = faster wear.

I bet on my old 01 before the nto5r I had the 555r and was a handful in the rain. And that tread design was way more forgiving for wet apps compared to the nt05r

Like I said, "if you're nice to them."

This is what I did, I run a square setup of NT05s for corner carving and street durability (probably about a 20k mile tire), and have the 05Rs on a second set of wheels.

I drove the NT05Rs in the rain once. Never again. The NT05s aren't exactly stellar when wet either, but it's at least manageable if you keep your driving sane.
