Forced Induction Problems

So not long after we did the supercharger I noticed a loss in power under hard acceleration and then sudden gasps. No check engine light so I knew all the sensors were good and whatnot. Turns out the intake boot couldn't handle the boost. All hail mighty duct tape. Runnin 12s again.

what a dirty motor.   whats the ride ?   twelve aint fast anymore .   I did better then that 35 years ago when it was fast. I put a k&n air filter and premium gas in my hemi truck and run close to 13s today  lol...….

 

I had a 455ho with twin 650 holleys and a big old tunnel ram sticking out the hood with added internal parts and 411 gears.   ran consistent 11.7 at the track but did mostly street racing

I just love when anyone claims that a K&N filter added any appreciable horse power gains. :laugh:

It adds a little noise, that's about it. And makes the engine compartment a bit roomier.

Makes almost as much hp gain as splitfire plugs

That's about it. Cold air intakes are another one. Almost all cars on the roads these days all have cold air intakes from the factory. And if they don't keep up with the maintenance on aftermarket filters, you're way better off with a paper filter. In most cases a paper filter is best anyways. The oiled type like a K&N only end up gumming up the MAF sensors and it starts running like dog ****.
