    1986 Mustang SVO Turbo/Supercharger (Engineering Senior Project)

    Hi, I'm new to the SVOCA community I am an engineering student and I am going to use my Jalapeno Red 1986 SVO for my senior design project. This project will consist of the combination of a turbocharger and a supercharger with the goal of improving volumetric efficiency. Basically, both power adders will work together to eliminate each other's draw backs and mimic the behavior of a larger naturally aspirated engine. I will be using the Gnari performance turbo kit because it is a pretty complete kit, it is designed to be a direct bolt on to our cars. I am going to be modifying it to adapt the super charger to the kit Shaun has given me great customer service and is being a great help with this project providing me with all the components I am going to be needing to make this happen. As a Engineer I have been working on the design and all the analysis for some time now in order to insure that this innovative concept will work if you are interested please follow along in our journey we will be posting pictures, data, and results of our progress as it all comes together. Along the way I will also be reviewing the overall built quality and reliability of the Gnari Performance turbo kit.

    What Computer are you going to use to control all this, coupled with I imagine EGT and Fuel sensors at what Boost?

    Sounds like a very cool senior project, cooler than my integrated jacking system. Would be great to see your progress through the build and will likely move this into the 'project' forum.

    That Ranger is certainly a bit of redneck, could have packaged it a bit better unless you were looking to use a spare Pro-Mod hood scoop. This project is more on the lines of the recent 2.0L engine Volvo engine that came onto the scene a couple of years ago:

    Good luck and let us know if you have any questions...not sure if we can help, but always worth a shot.

    Sounds interesting for sure. What model / type of supercharger are you thinking of? Something with a clutched pulley that can be controlled by the ECU like Mercedes has used?

    @kiwi we are going to be installing a stand alone ECU to control all of this including the electro magnetic clutch in the supercharger

    - - - Updated - - -

    @fast Ed you have done your HW we are using a Mercedes supercharger with a clutch and we are going to be controlling it with our stand alone ECU

    - - - Updated - - -

    We are currently preparing for our midterm presentation we will be posting pictures and videos soon...

    Definitely looking forward to hearing about the results. I've owned a few Eaton-supercharged cars including my current Jag XJR, so I'm familiar with many of the variations that the OEMs used.

    Yep it's called "compounding" pretty cool stuff. Definitely interested in seeing your project come to light. Not sure how well it will work on a small engine but interested to see the results. Good luck. Post lots O' pics for these gear heads.....

    Volvo is getting good numbers out of their "twin charged" 2.0L 4 that's used in a few vehicles now, it was a Wards Best Engine winner last year.

    Thank you guys for all of the positive feedback this is my senior design project and I need to finish it on time in order for me to graduate from Engineering School so I'm working really hard on it. I have currently installed all of the turbo components such as turbo manifold, wastegate with burn pipe, turbo and all the plumbing, intercooler, I also had my intake manifold ported and rotated 120 degrees and I already installed it. I am currently fabricating the bracket for the supercharger, the piping for the intercooler and at the same time taking care of all the wiring for the stand alone ECU. Please be patient I am taking allot of pictures and I'll be posting them very soon. FYI I am really impressed with the quality from the full turbo kit I got from gnari performance I really recommended to any of you guys who want to turn up the boost on your SVOs

    Just don't post them all to facepalm. That would be a fail!

    So, what ever happened to this project? Inquiring minds want to know.
