What are they. For one, I know that its less maintainance than turbo, but doesn't give as much power....please elaborate on the pros and cons.
They have much less efficent compressors, plus they have parasitic losses to turn the compressor by the crank.andre said:What are they. For one, I know that its less maintainance than turbo, but doesn't give as much power....please elaborate on the pros and cons.
andre said:OK...I heard that as long as you give the engine good maintainance i.e. oil changes, that you shouldn't have trouble with the superchargers.....
And I heard that they're more efficient...meaning it doesn't take time spool like the turbo does.... Dont be afraid to elaborate.....I just want to educate myself a little on the subject.
Turbochargers can increase exhaust gas temperatures more than superchargers do. They can also increase underhood tempeartures.andre said:OHhh..thanks...someone else had told me that it causes more heat in the engine...and you say that a good turbo is more efficient...but I dont want to get rid of my header, and change my exhaust again (got 2" piping...damn expensive strumong). Oh well, as long as I get the facts straight. Thanks.
