SVT + JRSC + BBK - Is it safe?

They are claiming approximately 10psi (on FRP)

add that to the SVT's already 10:2:1 compression.

Is this going to be safe?

I dont want to be blowing my engine in two

I run 19psi on 93 octane........

10psi should be safe, after all the kit comes with a reflash from Ford.

Did you lower the engines compression to compensate for the f\i pressure?

That kit has been tested by JR/FR and tuned by FR/FR.
I can only assume that they have done their homework/research on the engine and the tune/program they created to assure it adds power/boost to the engine safely.

And to top it off Ford is working to have their kits CARB approved. We will be able to smog our cars in Cali without the hassle of swapping parts.

It feels good to know that Ford has somewhat accepted the roots type Jr blower for its foci.
