Installing a Supercharger is not rocket science, but it can seem like a daunting task. With every supercharger kit we carry, you can be sure that clear and concise instructions will be provided. Installation can usually be completed within a 6-8 hour timeframe. Manufacturers take serious measures to ensure that each kit is complete with everything you will need including do-it-yourself instructions to install a supercharger. On top of that, highly trained technicians are just a phone call away if you run into problems during your supercharger install.
How Superchargers Work
What do superchargers do? A supercharger is a compressor wheel spun by a pully on the engine. This air is then directed through the intake manifold into each cylinder. By adding more air, we now have more room for more fuel. In a nutshell, it forces air into your combustion chambers rather than just a passive intake—this gives your motor an oxygen-rich air/fuel mixture, which results in added power and performance. With all this extra air and fuel it becomes necessary to start thinking about upgrading engine internals. There are three main types of supercharger: the root style supercharger, the centrifugal style supercharger and the twin screw supercharger. The difference is in the configuration, but in the end, they all do the same thing—deliver a giant pedal punch to the tune of triple digit horsepower and terrific torque.
