: procharger whine and idle
07-10-2007, 02:06 AM
this is just a general question cuz a lot of my friends are mustang guys and ive heard a lot of their cars....do the prochargers on the focus whine at idle and under load like they do on stangs?
does anyone have a sound clip?

Yes, they do. Just the same as the stangs. It is mostly from the straight-cut gears in the unit. If you have heard a stang , you"ve heard the focus.

Hmmm I can't hear mine under boost.....only at iddle ;-)
07-10-2007, 01:54 PM
can you get my a sound clip of idle?
im sure your exhaust kinda drones it out under boost...

Theyre not nearly as loud as a Mustangs except at idle and theyre fairly noisy at idle. They also sound as if theyre knocking at idle too.

I love the wine of superchargers

My friend has a PW on his Zetec and it total opposite of mine PC setup...at idle, u can't tell that he is boosted, and my car "squeaking" so u know there is either SC of something wrong with it heheheh..under boost his PW is 1000000x louder and has nice wheeeeeeeeeeeeee sound ;-)

07-11-2007, 03:28 PM
U getting PC for normal ZETEC ?
07-11-2007, 03:32 PM
uh i can get either. because im getting a manifold made i can place te TB anywhere..but ya prolly regular.
07-11-2007, 03:49 PM
I was asking this because if u don't have SVT, I would consider Powerworks for your setup.....
07-11-2007, 03:57 PM
PW simply doesnt make enough HP for me.
07-11-2007, 04:07 PM
^^ Have you driven a PW car?
07-11-2007, 04:29 PM
^^^ Exactly...I'm saying this because I have SVT with Procharger, ZTW N/A and I see the rpm differences between those two cars....SVT loves higher RPMs....my Friend has his ZX5 with PW and it's totally different car....I love it....
07-11-2007, 05:35 PM
no i havent but god id like to.
i am building a forged motor and itll rev higher then an svt.
07-11-2007, 05:38 PM
Then I'm quiet ;-)
07-11-2007, 05:59 PM
hahaha...you didnt think this was going on a stock motor? who the hell does that? uh...i have crazy crap going on.
07-11-2007, 06:20 PM

07-11-2007, 06:22 PM
