More About This Book

Overview

The supercharger and turbocharger in their various forms and applications have both been around for well over a century. What makes them so popular? Looks, power, performance, sound, and status. And how do they relate to, and improve upon, the performance level of a small-block Ford pushrod V-8 engine like a 289-302, a 351-Windsor, a Ford 351-Cleveland, or even the latest generation 4.6L/5.4L "modular" small-block V-8 engines? That's EXACTLY what this book is all about! While Ford dabbled in supercharging and turbocharging on production cars all the way back in 1957 with the legendary Thunderbird, and then again with Shelbys and over-the-counter kits, and then again in the late '70s and early '80s with turbocharging 4-cylinder applications in Mustangs and SHOs, the real revolution in supercharging and turbocharging Ford products has come through the aftermarket in more recent times. The Fox Mustang, created in 1979, and the platform that would eventually feature fuel injection in 1986, allowing much more boost, created a genre of lightning-quick and affordable performance cars. Featuring legendary supercharger and turbocharger manufacturers like Paxton, Vortech, Pro-Charger, Garret-AirResearch and Power Dyne, as well as traditional Roots-style systems, this book covers everything you need to know about supercharging and turbocharging your small-block Ford.
