Street racing stories are strictly prohibited on this Forum. That being said, most Mustangs are SSEi fodder if the driver knows what he'* doing even with a stock engine.

Painting that supercharger the way you did is actually hurting performance.

Start a topic in Performance for help with that intake setup, and Forced Induction for the proper size SC belt unless you decide to stick to the proper size pulley for your mods.

Car looks clean and VERY nice from the outside. Looks like you could use a little help under the hood. Give a shout. We're here to help you.

Don't mean to get off topic but I don't know too many V8 Mustangs that are going to get beat by a stock SSEI. A stock GT is usually low 14'*, high 13'* IIRC whereas the stock SSEI is about 15s.

Looks like superchargers is polished, not painted. I don't have a l67 powered car but many on here do. I would suggest listening to the people with lots of stars next to their name or anyone with a resident gearhead rank. even if you know alot about your car, you will be amazed at what more there is to learn from these people

V8 mustangs are small potatoes to most SSEi'* in stock form. That'* a topic for a different section though. I've been up against dozens at the track with both of my cars.

Recieved via PM, but needs to be posted here for all (that'* the idea of a Forum).

That'* even worse. You've destroyed the ability of the supercharger housing to dissipate heat.

And plating the INSIDE? Tolerances are pretty tight in there. I sure hope you took the plating thickness into account after you measured the OD of each rotor assembly.

The rough finish of the supercharger increases surface area and allows the supercharger to cool more quickly.

you know i never thought of it that way. the housing stays cooler to me than the stock housin before i could not even put my hand on it too long now it seems alot cooler that the stock castin! and the inside you are right it was a pain so the guy said it wasnt very thick at all next time i take it off ill post some pics of the outlet and all so you can get a good idea of wat it looks like!

I'd be very interested in seeing your outlet porting, as well as your inlet, but from a heat standpoint, you might be better off going back to a stock supercharger housing and not polishing or plating.

This is the only thing you should ever do to the outside:

http://www.bonnevilleclub.com/forum/...ic.php?t=90826

At some point, you need to draw a firm line between cosmetics and performance. Performance can be achieved with cosmetics, but only with care and research. At this point, I'd say you have some mods that are a bit off-kilter. I suggest you post any questions you may have about your setup in Performance, and pay very close attention to the advice our members give you. We know these cars inside and out, and are VERY good at what works and what doesn't.

Chrome plating the inside of a supercharger sounds like a bad idea just for the fact that the plating will wear off and flakes of metal would get sucked in to the engine. I know from working at a tire shop that chrome doesn't bond to aluminum very well. I have seen so many chrome plated rims come in all chipped to hell. Add heat and friction and that plating doesn't stand a chance of lasting too long.

Looks to be in good shape......

However that is NOT a 2001 SSEi.

Your SSEi badges are wrong. They should look like this:



Your wheels are wrong. You should have the center caps similar to the ones in this thread.

If it is in fact an 01, I'd pull a carfax on it.

I guess its remotely possibly you got a mutant or super early of production of a 2001, but most I've seen have the 01 wheels and the red badges.....

i would be careful with this statement

the badge you posted is incorrect. the 00-01 SSEi'* share the same badge, and does NOT have a red I, never did.

92seand78z28 Has a 01 SSEI, and has the exact same center caps and badges.
