supercharger info update

I posted a while back about superchargers for toyota 22r's that 'might' be adaptable to samurai motor, but cant find the thread that it was part of. Anyway, there's been a recent update in the LCE newsletter - here's a link to the thread on the toy board for those who were interested.

Re: supercharger info update

Yep, looks like the same worm that calmini was using.

60 + 45% = 87 HP

That ain't much for the $2,500 they probably charge.

If you search around, that kind of money will get you a 95 sidekick with a 16v engine = 95 HP.

You can use the seats, the motor, the FI (no stalling on hills), the ecm, the larger fuel tank, all the smog crap to stay legal, and still have enough stuff to part out and recoup some of the expenses.

A long time ago I was saving for Calmini's Supercharger, until one of the mags had a picture of their rig smoking in the rubicon (kaboom!). So ever since I have been waiting for the right displacement solution instead.

It is certainly a cool option for those that want to have a hyped 1.3.

I love the idea of being blown [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img] but the new smog laws will be hard to skirt here.

That would be trick on the 1.3 swift GTi. With a sumo 2 head. You would have a smokin 1.3, a real sleeper. The nice thing about those is how fast you can get your rpm's up.

Re: supercharger info update

Ionsponge - wish I could find that other thread - the topic was superchargers on MODIFIED motors...not necesarily just for the 1.3's. I agree entirely that for 80-90 HP, its a lot of $$$.
my personal take on 'blown' motors is that turbos are a WAY better way to go on an all-purpose rig, not to mentoin that tehy're much easier to b uild topass emissions testing. ( legitimately) thus, if I ever get my 1.3l test mule, the eventual plan is to work up a kit for 1.3 turbo/FI/intercooled, same basic concept would apply to 1.6, and 1.6 16v motors...but the 1.3's need the help the most, so thats were I was planning on starting.

Re: supercharger info update

It's all good [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

I don't know why I'm being picky, my butt has been unemployed for 3 months now and unless I land one cherry of a job soon (IT), The sam is not going to pass inspection.

Since I need to pass smog I have been looking into a FI engine swap. ...Hence my bias?

Thanks for sharing though.
