You might be attempting the impossible--or at least the inappropriate. If you are trying the SOR solution algorithm, I assume that you are trying to solve the Poisson equation. However, the character of the Poisson equation is elliptic. This represents incompressible flows well. For supersonic flows, the character is best described as "hyperbolic." So your equations should be wave-like equations, rather than the Poisson equation. There are special methods for hyperbolic equations.
