Blow-Off Valve: A blow-off valve is used to relieve boost pressure. Boost is created as throttle input is increased, and the engine’s RPM begins to increase. If throttle input is decreased, the boost pressure must be relieved. A blow-off valve allows this pressure to be vented to the atmosphere, and not enter the engine’s intake when it’s not needed. Sometimes with smaller boost installations of 5 psi, a blow-off valve may not be used. As boost pressure increases, however, the ability to relieve the boost pressure becomes increasingly important, as engine damage could result.
The biggest advantage of the centrifugal supercharger is fitment. It mounts to the front of the engine much like an accessory would. They generally use an air- to- air intercooler. The compressed air is pumped through the intercooler before it enters the intake plenum. The intercooler mounts to the front of the engine bay and is also similar to a radiator just like the air-to-water intercooler. The disadvantage is full power potential isn’t reached until you’re pretty much shifting gears.

If you’re more into autocross there are plenty of wheel options out there for you as well. Just like selecting a set of wheels for drag racing, you want to choose something both lightweight and durable enough to endure the abuse at the track. With autocross wheels you want to make sure the width of the wheels is the same. However, if you do decide on a staggered setup, you have to confirm the correct offset and backspacing in order for the wheels to fit properly. You already know how larger diameter rims reduce flex (bonus!), but keep in mind a small sidewall tire offers less protection of the rim when driving on the street.
Depending upon the exact type of positive displacement supercharger, there may be more than two rotors used. With the modern positive displacement superchargers used on Mustangs, twin rotors are normally employed. Just as with the centrifugal supercharger, the rotors spin at high speeds and lubrication is required inside the supercharger. Positive displacement nearly always use a self-contained oil system, which will requires oil changes on a regular basis.
Looking for different tire sizing calculations, or just want to see how much those new rims are going to throw off your speedometer? A tire size calculator will help you solve fitment and spacing issues as well as give you insight into measurements and differences between tires.
The centrifugal supercharger became a very popular option for the Fox-Body Mustang , although its first use on the Mustang date back several decades ago. Carroll Shelby starting using Paxton superchargers on certain Shelby Mustangs back in the sixties. These particular Shelbys command a very high price tag among car collectors today.
This is in regards to the size and difference between our AmericanMuscle center caps and the Ford Racing center caps. Both of these center caps are inches in diameter, but they are NOT the same and are not interchangeable. Specifically:
If prominence and bragging rights are what you’re after, or you have a Roush, Saleen, Foose Mustang , etc. then a set of authentically produced wheels may be for you. If you are just after the looks and performance aspect, you might be more interested in a set of reproduction style wheels.
Anyone who gives you the line there s no replacement for displacement when asking about a supercharger has probably never driven a boosted Mustang before. Neck-snapping power and the feeling of control over the road are only two of the many awesome byproducts of installing a blower on your Mustang.
