Some basic supercharger info

I am NOT advocating S/C over turbo or any specific kind of S/C. Just some basic S/C info in case anyone is curious and wants to know more.

'Roots' supercharger (TRD)


Twin screw supercharger


Centrifugal supercharger (URD)


More supercharger information.

A little more information.

Superchargers (these days) are quite reliable and resiliant.

There are a couple places where the type of supercharger needed for our activities might cause some problems.

A gear driven twin screw supercharger (Whipple for those of you who are familiar with them) would need some way to blow off backpressure when you rev the engine to get out off the line. The centrifugal type, since it is a fan type, will allow this pressure to flow back over the fan without (much of) a problem. As far as the engine goes, very high pressure is what causes problems and so no worries there.

I *might* suggest very closely logging your engine and seeing what kind of use you are putting your vehicle to. Then, after getting the supercharger installed I would see about getting a custom PCM tune made for it. Continue logging to see what, if anything, should be changed on your tune.

Check into an upgraded fuel rail. This does not appear to be a problem so far, once I have the car and can do some logging I can check and see what the actual need is. Don't forget a CAI. Not a lot of use to have more air in there if you can't feed in enough fuel.

ABSOLUTELY check into beefing up the following things with a base S/C install:
transmission mounts
engine mounts
diff mounts

Optional but advised if you go above the base install or get into more pressure:
transmission
clutch or torque converter.

If you are using this for highway and more speed, brakes, BIGGER ONES!

It is always good to get a 1 range colder spark plugs as you are pushing denser, colder air into the system and it helps a little to control any tendencies to precombustion. This is a BAD THING®
