Re: Rimmer super chargers

[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/tongue.gif[/img] You know, if the truth be known, a supercharger is really the way to get performance. It always has been. Turbos are nice too, but there are a lot more problems with turbocharged gasoline engines, and one of them is cool-down time, since a gas engine passes very little air at idle. When Joe Carowner gets to his appointment he just shuts off the engine and the hot turbo cooks the bearing lubricant, whereas diesels pass 100%(minus the losses) of their displacement through the engine at idle and cool quickly. Superchargers don't have the cooldown problem since they aren't handling exhaust gases. There were several different superchargers sold as far back as the fifties, and they worked pretty well, since cars were generally low compression. If you really start squeezing the air in though, detonation is a problem unless you use water injection or some other means to prevent it. Believe it or not, the indy cars of the early fifties were less than five liters and really cranked out the HP, supercharged of course.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif[/img]

Re: Rimmer super chargers

I looked at their stuff for my 4 banger, but I don't have the 3 grand. I did find a way I should be able to get an extra 20 horses out of my motor though. You can use a shop computer to retune the computer on the Jeep. It's kind of like a Jet chip only cheaper. I should have the results Monday night. I'll put up a post about it as soon as I can.

Re: Rimmer super chargers

I don't know how much I'd be able to mess with my 'puter. Currently, I have a 258 block, 4.0L head, MPI, cammed, bored TB, adj. fuel press. reg., header, Jacobs Omni Torquer, etc.. I plan on building a 4.0L stroker this Spring, and I'm wishing that I could come up with the $$$ to slap a SC on it.
Anyone want to buy some slightly used kids with low miles? =8~>

Thanks for all the responses folks!
