1970 Mustang Superchargers and Nitrous Kits
An engine swap isn’t always in the cards. Mustang enthusiasts who aren’t planning to pull their engine and drop in a more powerful one will be happy to learn that a significant boost in power is still within reach. Adding a supercharger or nitrous oxide kit is one way to get that performance increase in your 1970 Mustang with relatively little effort. In both cases, your engine will be able to develop more power thanks to denser air flowing into the intake. CJ Pony Parts carries all you need to upgrade to a supercharger or nitrous system, and they’re all available here through our easy-to-use online store.

1970 Supercharger Kits
Choosing Which Is Best for YouWhile they go about it using two very different methods, supercharging and nitrous oxide injection both allow your current engine to put out significantly more power. It’s important to understand how they each work before making your decision:
• Supercharging: A supercharger is a high-pressure air pump that is run directly from your engine using a pulley. Because the pulley spins as soon as your engine revs, you have boost sooner than with a turbocharger. This compressed air is forced into your intake and combustion chamber, and the result is more oxygen available for combustion and increased power.
• Nitrous oxide: Nitrous oxide is stored in a tank in your trunk. Available at the flip of a switch, the driver injects nitrous into the intake or combustion chamber, which lowers the temperature and provides denser air. As with the supercharger, this provides additional oxygen for more effective combustion and an increase in power.
For everyday driving, supercharging is the more popular option, as it requires no driver input and gives a more linear power boost across all acceleration speeds. It also creates less stress on your engine. Nitrous is really the ideal system for an occasional power boost, but you can’t use it constantly as it could damage your engine. And if you’re racing your Mustang, your driving style and racing class will dictate which power grab is going to keep you out in front!
