So everything has been running fine untill i went to the race track the other day, i ran the quarter mile about 5 or 6 times and didnt notice anything wrong actually ran pretty good. As i was leaving the track and earlier today i put the pedal to the floor and the acceleration was about 70% of what it normally is and the sound out of my exhaust was a bogged down sound. Now at first i thought spark plugs or something like that but the weird thing is it comes and goes.....after it was boggy and slow i let off the pedal and went the speed limit haha, anyway it went away after a few mins and speed and sound were back, but it did it again a few miles later, PLEASE HELP ME GUYS....i love my car and im afraid something serious is going on and i dont want it to get worse.

is your engine light on? is there a bad smell from your exhaust? fuel or rotten egg smell.

No nothing like that, just loss of power and a bogging sound

is your fuel pump adjustable? sounds like you have a fuel issue. can you get it to a dyno for a tune? maybe a tune will help.

Couldnt hurt to throw some seafoam in to try and clean it all out and see if that helps. Thats one of the first things i would do if i was having the problems that u described. I usually seamfoam my engine about every other oil change just so i know everything is running clean.

i want to try seafoam on my mustang. does it work well for you? i can't get it here in Newfoundland. i wanted to find someone who used it regularly and see how it helps. if you know of any parts places here in canada that carry it drop me a line.

I would start by looking at the connections for the supercharger, ie. the intake piping, vacuum hoses, etc, you may have blown one off or loosened it. I'm not a big fan of seafoaming an engine, and twice as much against it as a method of fixing a problem as its more like masking one. Also check the spark plugs and coils. The first thing I thought of was maybe you had part of the exhaust clogged, but it says you have an o/r x pipe, so that's out. Hope this helps.
