|Step 13 - The Final Adjustment|
You need to start your engine and check to see if all your connections are tight and are not leaking or rubbing. The following check list pertains to both supercharger and turbo applications.
Idle Adjustment on Supercharger Applications
Your idle setting will most likely require adjusting. If you installed your supercharger you probably have already adjusted your idle control once before. You may experience some idle drop when you come to a stop. No problem, just need some fine tuning.
So What Do You Think?
It took a little bit of time, but you're done! Not only does the Track Dog Racing system look great, but it will also allow you to produce more power--and that's a great thing!
Heat causes detonation, and without the TDR Intercooler system you were probably generating close to 200° F or more into the intake of the engine. At those high intake temperatures you were required to reduce your timing to prevent detonation and rob yourself of horsepower.
The outlet temperatures will now be closer to ambient, lower than your intake used to see when it was naturally aspirated. We suggest you head for the dyno as soon as you can and work on your timing to bring your horsepower to higher and safer levels. Because you are running much cooler air into the engine, fuel may need to be richened as well. Consider running a smaller pulley on the supercharger if you have a good fuel management. There is power just waiting to be released!
