BBM FAQ

My engine has fairly high miles on it. Can I safely boost my engine with a supercharger or turbo kit without it breaking it or causing problems?

Even engines with high miles can be in great condition and a candidate for adding boost. Engines that are running good and that have been maintained are typically still very safe to boost. Engineered bolt on forced induction systems are tuned to run the correct air fuel ratios and to not detonate. So long as your engine still has good compression and does not have rod knocking or other mechanical issues, you should be good to go. You should have a good tune-up and no other underlying running issues when adding a boost system. We do also recommend that you replace the timing belt / chain, oil pump and water pump on engines with over 100k or more miles.
