Little puff of smoke on occasion normal?

Got a supercharged '03 Mach 1. I've noticed that every now and then it'll briefly blow a puff of smoke right when I mash the throttle at full force but it doesn't continue to smoke as I accelerate. I am thinking this is normal as it's suddenly dumping a lot more fuel in. It is, right? Hope so, lol.

My '99 GT or '95 GT never did that, but then again they were not supercharged. Need a lot more fuel under load with a blower.


'03 Mach 1 5spd
Fully forged Manley rods/pistons, Cobra crank, ARP hardware, 8.5:1, Procharger P1SC w/ intercooler, AFM power pipe, 60# injectors, 03/04 Cobra tank with dual fuel pumps, Kenne Bell Boost-a-Pump, O/R X pipe and Flowmasters, Exedy stage 3 clutch, Steeda Tri-Ax, Front and rear upper + lower control arms, Ford Racing springs, Bob Monks tune 448 rwhp @ 9 PSI

Sounds like it's just rich on the hit. Better then going lean with all the added air

gq hit it right on the head. Better to be rich than leaning out at WOT.

You should've seen my Mach when it was tuned for the 39lb injectors in it but didn't have a blower strapped on. That sucker made some serious prius repellant and stunk like hell.
