  • Can the FFS Supercharger kit take high temperatures?

    http://www.accuweather.com/en/weathe...ather/14619950

    Today it hits 128*F in Death Valley. So what? Well, we have a customer with a Fast Forward Supercharger kit that spends 5 days a week there and has for quite some time with no problems. Yep. I think it can take the heat.

    Well, you ask, what about altitude. When he leaves Death Valley at the end of the week to go home, he climbs about a 10% grade for 11 miles to go from below sea level to over 5,000 feet. I guess he needs to spend some cooling off time? :-)

        No problems with it, The surprised look on peoples face when you pass them going up the hill in their rentals is priceless. Especially the ones who decide they are not going to get passed by a miata....And they haven't got what it takes.

            Thanks for posting. I forget, what is the grade that you climb out of DV and how long is the climb.

            ps. Enjoy the 129*. Personally, I think 119* is hot enough.

              The grade starts at Stovepipe wells at 29 feet and ends at 4754 feet about 16 miles long. Going in is 8 miles of 7.6% to 9.3%. Great for testing...

                Probably 120F at the bottom and 75F at the top? :-)

                  It actually doesn't cool off but about 10 degrees in the summer.

                    Sorry. I meant at the bottom of the run in Death Valley and the top of the run at 4700 feet.

                      Yeah I knew what you meant, only about 10 degrees cooler at the top of the hill as compared to the bottom.
