That's interesting. I never heard that before.Wastegate setup. Pulley for what ever boost you want to happen at what ever down low rpm you want and dump the excess boost before running it through the intercooler. No sense cooling air you won't use anyway. If you pulley for 30 psi at 6000 you will have 15 at 3000 and 10 at 2000 and 5 psi at 1000. You'd hit 8 psi at 1600. Once you hit your target, you can more or less hold that psi. In principle it's the same thing turbos do.
Thanks!There was an article years ago in MMFF about it.
EDIT: I found it!!
Turbo People Added A Wastegate To A Centrifugally Blown Mustang And Created One Sick Street Beast - Muscle Mustangs & Fast Fords Magazinewww.mustangandfords.com
My search turned this up too. It's GM but the principle is the same.
A little turbo technology gives centrifugally blown engines a significant boost in torque. Click here for more details or check out the November 2012 issue of Super Chevy Magazine.www.superchevy.com
Happens when chasing belt slip. Crank snout ends up side loaded and breaks eventually. Stock crank problem as far as I've even heard about. 4.6's don't seam to suffer the problem.Is this just a cast crank concern? I have never really heard of this on forged ones outside of hardcore applications like cogged setups.
I made my own manual tensioner and it reduces the amount of tension you need to solve belt slip. Post is old so the pictures don't work anymore.Happens when chasing belt slip.
