from the thread... http://focusfanatics.com/forum/showthread.php?t=105273Me!!! said:Jackson Racing Supercharger - Old Faithful.
The Jackson Racing Supercharger is the oldest of the bunch. It is an Eaton m62 blower on a focus specific intake manifold with extremely short runners. It is the cheapest and lowest yielding of all the forced induction options. Not saying its bad, but with the addition of the Ford Big Boost Kit the blower is pretty much maxed out. It is un-intercooled and maxes out at about 10psi. Some have tried, with disasterous effects, to up the boost and have had good effects until the IAT's were high enough to detonate the engine to failure or melt a piston. Due to the inefficient nature of the roots blower, the JRSC is prone to heatsoak. This can be solved by both lowering the temperature of the engine bay and chemically by water meth injection.
Would be a good idea to upgrade...
Clutch for increased tq capacity.
Works well with beginner mods...
Could benefit from the 67mm Throttle Body.
Functional Hood Vent, removing the cowl-hood seal to release heat, creative ducting to introduce cool air onto the blower itself.
Thanks for the input man. That right there is going to make me want the setup. All I really needed was some input like that.I've read a few threads like this, and thought I'd finally chime in. The SVTF is a great litttle package right off the shelf, with some nice pop for a 4-banger. Add the JRSC with the Ford BBK, and you've got plenty of juice to get you in all kinds of trouble before reaching third gear. I've had mine in just over a year now and absolutely love it. Installation was straight-forward, it fits in the engine bay nicely without getting in the way of most everything else, and with the included Ford tune, is good, dependable holy crap! fun. Sure, you could spend more for a few extra pounds of boost and bragging rights, but what's the point? There'll always be somebody faster. The JRSC/BBK combo is a great performance enhancer for the money, and at the same time will be easier on the mechanical parts downstream than some of the other higher-boost/higher-priced applications. Just MY 2 cents... buy it, and enjoy the whine.
That would be great. I will contact you sometime.We have sold and installed a number of these kits. The FR BBK kit is a very good tune out of the box and it picks up a stock car nicely. If you need a kit let me know.
