95 Mustang GT w/YSi-Trim

Ok, I have a delimna. I am ready to start on my engine and I have decided on a NA 342 with 10:1 compression, but I have this YSi-Trim Vortech sitting in my garage and I am wondering if I should go ahead and do a 9:1 compression and run with it. If so, I will only run up to 10 lbs of boost, no more.

The car will be 70% street, 20% AX, and 10% open track events. The reason I had originally decided to go NA was that I thought running the supercharger on the track would be too much in the way of heatsoak.

What are your opinions? Has anyone else tried this?

I know there are plenty of supercharged mustangs running at Auto X and open track events...like 03-04 Cobras...

At 10psi, that YSi will barely be breaking a sweat...

Yeah to both. Mostly autocrossed in Houston, and open-tracked at Hallet at the Mid-America Shelby Show & Meet. Why?

I'm sure he was checking your experience before he gives the old "learn to drive before you worry about more power"

Which, is excellent advice.

I'd say make sure your running a good tune, keep that air cool, and make sure your gauges are accurate!
