1998 Mustang GT with Allen Supercharger
This is Tim Kraushaar's 98 GT.
I recommended and installed the Allen supercharger kit. Although
I always thought the Allen kit would be great, this was the first Allen
kit I installed. The install took 2 days making it the hardest system
I have installed to date. To it's credit however, it is everything
I expected as far as quality. There are several precision cast and
machined aluminum parts which were very well done. It made use of
nearly all the real estate at the rear of the engine V where the intake
manifold originally was. It also drove as I expected. Throttle
responce was excellent as was the power delivery from one end of the tach
to the other. Without any modifications to the timing, there was
very little ping even on regular unleaded. With premium fuel the
ping was under control. The blower was silent until you went into
boost. Then you would hear it but it was still not loud at all.
The intercooler pump was a bit noisey however and it ran all the time.
It turned out the first pump we got was faulty and Allen quickly sent a
replacement that was much better. I would definately recommend this kit
again. Out of all the kits I have installed, this was both the hardest
and the most worthwhile.

C&L 80mm MAF
kit with conical K&N filter
Ford Motorsports 30lb/h injectors
Aeromotive adjustable fuel
Allen has a unique FMU setup. It has a control rod that goes
into the vacuum port of a regular fuel pressure regulator. Under
boost, the upper diaphram will push the rod down causing the fuel pressure
to rise just like any other FMU. This FMU was removed however
when the MAF and fuel injectors were upgraded.
Below is a picture of the bottom of the blower showing the bypass valve.
The IAC and EGR are also tucked below the intake manifold to a throttle
boday adapter housing which attaches to the back of the blower.
