Saleen SPEEDLAB Superchargers and Boost Gauge Statement

It has come to our attention at Saleen that there is some confusion with regards to how our supercharger works and what kind of boost pressure it should create. The following information should help you and yours assist customers with any questions they may have.

The first thing that has come to our attention is customers and dealerships saying, “the boost pressure gauge does not move no matter how fast I’m going.”

The only time the vehicle will produce boost is when the car is under load, meaning hard acceleration in 2nd or 3rd gear. You may see boost in all gears at wide-open throttle but, the amount of boost you will see will be small (2-3 lbs. In 1st, 4th and 5th gear compared to the 5-7 lbs you may see under hard acceleration in 2nd or 3rd gear).

Our Speedlab supercharger works with a by-pass valve system similar to that of a 1993 Ford T-bird Supercoupe. When the air fuel mixture enters the inlet tube (the tube that connects the throttle body to the back of the supercharger) it has two routes it can take, either directly into the manifold or into the supercharger. When it gets routed to the supercharger the car makes boost. The way it gets routed to the supercharger is based on the by-pass valve and how much vacuum the car is making. When the car makes a lot of vacuum (hard acceleration) the butterfly that directs that air fuel mixture in the inlet tube closes and sends it to the supercharger thus, creating boost.

When the car is under normal driving conditions (even accelerating from a stand still to 80 mph) the butterfly in the inlet tube stays open, directing the air fuel mixture directly into the manifold thus, not making any boost.

Again the car has to be at wide-open throttle to produce boost.

on this boost conversation. i have an 07#349 SC an i was told that it has Adaptive Lesrning, if i drove like Grampa it would not perform when i wanted it too. so! ive driven it like i own it. with respect to laws!! BUT ive found the greatest boost point to be under heavy throtle, an also between speeds the boost can be felt greatly between 2&3, 3&4 4&5(or OD) (between 4&OD ya better be on the highway! with noone in front!) just my little in put on this subject. but am seriously thinking of an upgrade!!.

gomez331sc 11-25-2008 04:56 PM

i had that same problem once! i was driving on winding country roads an had shut the Over Drive "off" an forgot it, an got on the highway an had a serging an pulsing feeling, then looking at the cluster i noticed the OD lite lit!!!!!!!!! clicked OD an all was fine! hope that helped?

How about the TSB about the rear end shutter in these trucks? Can we get that one posted? I know that it is caused by too much negative pinion angle (some people have had up to -9 degrees pinion angle from the factory!! It should be -1 to -2 degrees.

Is there a TSB on these electric fans kicking on and off ever 10 seconds?

5-7lbs of boost? I have driven my truck under any and all conditions....full throttle up to 110mph....45 degree ambient temp to 105 degree temp. My gauge has never read about 4.5PSI. Or maybe this bulletin applies to the superchargers as a whole, including the mustang?? I wish this truck made 7PSI!!! lol

2007 S331 3V & SC with 15” Brake Upgrade - Wheel Hub Assembly Update
1 Attachment(s)
2007 S331 3-Valve & Supercharged with 15” Brake Upgrade
Wheel Hub Assembly Update

Saleen, Inc. has decided that a defect which relates to motor vehicle safety exists in certain 2007 S331 Supercharged and S331 3V vehicles with the 15” brake upgrade option. These vehicles have a bearing held into each front hub by a C-clip, and some of the C-clips may not have been installed
properly. The potential failure modes of this issue are that the hub will come loose within the spindle and will force the rotor to contact the brake pad. Ultimately, depending on the driving condition (i.e. applied load), the bracket holding on the brake caliper could potentially fail, resulting in the rotating assembly (wheel, tire, hub, and rotor) separating from the vehicle. The Service Portion of this bulletin provides instruction on how to install this new wheel hub onto the vehicle.

This campaign is identified by 07V-188. This number must appear on all communications and documentation associated with this campaign.

The number of vehicles potentially affected is 163.

It is the dealer’s responsibility to inspect and repair each vehicle affected by this voluntary safety recall which for any reason enters the service department. This includes vehicles purchased from private parties or presented by transient (tourist) owners and vehicles that are in the dealer’s

f anyone needs an install manual for any body components, s/c, or the exhaust, I have the Operatios Description Sheets. They may help, since many S331 parts don't have actual end-user manuals... Let me know...
