CarCast Podcast co-host Matt D’Andria bought a 1995 Ford F-150 Lightning equipped with a Ford Motorsports centrifugal belt-driven supercharger.
Curious how much power the supercharger was adding, Matt drove the cherry condition Lightning straight to Banks for a run on the rollers. As Jeff from the Engineering Dept. strapped down the truck in preparation for a few dyno pulls, Gale explained the sensors the team had installed to measure air density gains across the entire intake system all the way to the manifold. After baselining the truck, Matt will know how must power he’s added or subtracted after adding an intercooler, upgrading his supercharger, etc.
Watch to see how it performed on the dyno.
