INFORMATION ABOUT THE SUPERCHARGER BYPASS OPERATION
There is a great deal of misinformation about the function of supercharger bypass systems. The supercharger is a positive-displacement pump; that is, so long as it is rotating, it is always pumping air. During low demand or high vacuum operation (i.e. idle, deceleration, and light throttle cruise), the pumping action is undesirable as it creates unwanted heat and noise. The bypass circuit, when open, prevents any pressure buildup across the supercharger and allows air to circulate through the rotors, allowing the supercharger to idle freely during these conditions. This results in reduced noise, and by reducing heat buildup in the intake, significantly improves street and strip performance. As throttle demand increases, the bypass circuit is closed, resulting in full performance from the supercharger. The bypass circuit is never used to limit or control boost during full-throttle operation and defeating or altering the bypass function will not result in improved performance in any condition, and will result in poor drivability.

- Install the Degas Bottle Inlet Hose (13118D031) from the upper intercooler turret to the upper degas bottle fitting using (2) Ύ constant tension clamps. Orient the clamps so the I on the hose is in the center of the clamp tangs.
- Reinstall the upper radiator hose.
- Reinstall the factory degas bottle onto the fan shroud and torque the bolt to 10Nm.
- Before reinstalling the factory heater feed and return hoses you must first install the protective sleeve material supplied with this kit in the areas shown below.
- Install one length of protective sleeve onto the passenger side heater hose. Slide it over the quick connect fitting and along the heater hose. Apply electrical tape over either end of the protective sleeve to secure its position on the hose.
- Install the second length of protective sleeve over the quick connect fitting and along the heater hose on the drivers side. Apply electrical tape over either end of the protective sleeve to secure its position on the hose.
- Install the 3/8 Engine Bottle Degas Hose (13118276) from the engine degas bottle to the fitting on the driver side cylinder head. Secure with the constant tension clamps removed from the factory hose. Ensure both Ύ intercooler hoses, the degas hose and all clamps and wiring have been installed to provide maximum clearance to the supercharger belt.
Air Induction System
- Install the Upper Airbox Lid (13119643NLHC) onto the lower airbox using the factory clips. Connect the MAF wiring harness to the MAF sensor.
- Insert the Vacuum Fitting (383004-S) and the Ό Vacuum Cap (CS515) from Hardware Kit A into the Clean Air Tube (13119B659) in the orientation shown.
- Install the Clean Air Tube in the vehicle using (2) hose clamps (R07130015) from Hardware Kit A. Torque clamps to 3 Nm.
- Install the PCV Fresh Air Inlet tube (13116758) by connecting the 90 deg fitting to the driver side cam cover and angled fitting to the PCV fitting in the clean air tube.
- Fill the engine cooling system (using a proper coolant mixture) to the marked level on the radiator degas bottle.
- Using the same coolant mixture, fill the intercooler system. The coolant should be approximately one inch below the top of the cap.
Important: Both coolant systems can trap a large amount of air. It is very important to verify that the air is purged and that coolant is flowing properly through both systems. Ford Racing recommends vacuum filling both systems to properly evacuate the trapped air.
- Fill the supercharger with the Supercharger Oil provided.
- Reinstall front bumper cover, lower close-out panel and inner fenders by reversing the removal procedures.
- Reinstall the front wheels/tires. Torque wheel lugs to the factory Ford specifications.
- Inspect all underhood wiring harnesses for potential interference issues. Use zip ties to safely position the harness away from any areas of concern.
- Reinstall the radiator trim cover by reversing the removal instructions.
- Reinstall the battery connections by connecting the positive cable first then connecting the negative cable.
- Reconnect the fuel pump control module electrical connector located in the spare tire stowage compartment.
