I don’t see how adding boost to anything can be considered a mistake, but if you do it wrong I guess it can seem like it. Richard is back at it as always, and he’s got all kinds of great tests and great data to share with all of us. Watch the video below and be inspired to add boost to your mod motor too!
WHICH ONE MAKES MORE POWER, 4.6L VS 5.4L? HOW MUCH POWER IS A VORTECH SUPERCHARGER WORTH? CAN I RUN BOOST ON MY 4.6L 2V MOTOR? CAN I SUPERCHARGE THE 5.4L 4V NAVIGATOR MOTOR? IS A 4-VALVE MOTOR BETTER THAN A 2-VALVE MOTOR? SHOULD I MODIFY THE MOTOR BEFORE ADDING BOOST? HOW MUCH ARE CAMS WORTH ON A SUPERCHARGED MOD MOTOR? CHECK OUT THIS VIDEO WHERE I RAN A FIRST MODIFIED A 4.6L 2V NON-PI MOTOR WITH PORTED PI HEADS, COMP CAMS AND PI INTAKE, THEN ADDED AN INTERCOOLED VORTECH SUPERCHARGER. ALSO INCLUDED AS A TEST WHERE I ADDED A VORTECH SUPERCHARGER TO A MODIFIED 5.4L 4V MOTOR, THEN TESTED WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU ADD ICE WATER TO THE INTERCOOLER.
