Mustang GT 2006 Whipple HO Intercooler. Less power over time?

Hello, I have a 2006 Mustang GT with Whipple HO intercooled supercharger, My first impression, after the installation It performed a brutal power, I come noticing, for some weeks, that the car does not have so much power as before, the access to the dyno is very far. I have the pulley of 3.125 installed and the stock engine. He would be grateful they could indicate me, it forms of verifying the power, for exm., times of recovery between speeds, 3ª 80 Km/H to 120 Km/H., 4ª 80 Km/H to 120 Km/H., 5ª 80 Km/H to 120 Km/H., Or the test that yours. consider to be opportune. Thank you for the attention.

Re-set your ECU:

ECU re-set procedure:
  • Put the key in the “on” position (all the way forward without starting the car).
  • Disconnect negative battery cable.
  • Let car sit for 15min.
  • Remove key from ignition.
  • Connect negative battery cable.
  • Start car and go drive.

When you go for a drive the ECU will start rebuilding all of its tables. You will be starting “fresh”. The ECU has a learning program built into it which for some reason makes the car run worse over time than better which I have to assume is what it is supposed to do. My F-150’s and F-250’s were all the same way.

I got this procedure from the guy who did all of the tuning and calibration work on the 2010 Cobra Jet.

You're used to the power now. I thought the same thing with my Whipple. If I drive my wife's car for the weekend...then drive my Mustang it feels fast again

OK, also I have noticed that the sound of the whipple, it is very tenuous, I have verified in youtube, since hereabouts it is not any whipple, Before my whipple was sounding this way, but now the sound has gone out very much. Thank you.

Did you install either an oil separator or breathers when you installed the supercharger? The reason I ask is that the oil that would be sucked through the pcv system will gunk up the intercooler which in turn will cause it to loose it's air cooling ability. That will lead to less timing and less power due to high IAT temps.

Your kidding right?:hihi:

How exactly will oil "gunk up" the intercooler when there is not enough heat to get it warm, let alone bake it off. And it has 8psi pushing whatever little bit there is through it. The oil may leave a non "gunky" light film on the intercooler but it will NEVER block or slow down a thing.

How long has it been since you installed the S/C? Check your spark plugs, they may be fouled. Pull one and see. I was losing power and replace the plugs and it is back the way it used to be.

I forgot to mention that I changed my plugs after about a year or 8k miles. I often read alot about plugs being changed often with S/C engines. Every year on average or every time after a run at the track.
My plugs weren't really fouled but the insulator was darker than it should be.
