In light of all the interesting Supercharger talk that has been going on in the 80 series tech section recently, saw this video on the ole Instagram the other day and was baffled by the noise/whine that is coming off this supercharger, heck it sounds like a modern hellcat engine. Anyone have any idea what is going on here? ive been around a couple of our 80 SC before and have never heard anything like this. Custom intake? running crazy higher boost? one of those weird supercharger noise pipes people put on their mustangs lol?

Anyways just saw it the other day and had a sec to post now and figure why not share as it as I was stumped and figured it must just be an edited video with a sound overlay

I’ve done the same just to hear it on my 80z It sounds amazing. Haha.

I also had a “cold air” intake on my supercharged 3rd Gen 4runner and the whine from the supercharger was ridiculously loud.

Hmmm maybe a cold air on the 80 would really wake it up. However, it would truly be a shame to not run the OE airbox as its such a stout design.
