I know a little bit about turbo charged cars but i dont really know much about supercharged cars or superchargers in general. What is the diference between the two and is either one better than the other?
There's alot of information to cover there. Anything in specific you want to know?BoKaThUg1 said:I know a little bit about turbo charged cars but i dont really know much about supercharged cars or superchargers in general.

Does it bleed off boost after 4500? Can we fix that? Stock evos peak at 19 and taper off to 16psi at redline. When driving, it feels like they fall on their face. Simply holding 19 untill redline helps alot. It sounds like we have somewhat of the same issure here. If we could keep building boost past 4500 and peak at say 16+psi, there would be alot more top end. Someone needs to come out with an ECU reflash for this car.goofyguy said:thats not entirely true. The supercharger makes more boost as you get to redline but Ours hits the desired point at 4500 where it holds at 12psi.
Actually when the motor is at part throttle and there is a vacuum condition in the manifold the supercharger's rotors are creating very little parisitic loss because there is no load on them. They are spinning in a vacuum, kind of like being in space.myredline said:with supercharger you are always using the motor to drive the charger. And the Redline tested at 29 is a joke. I have driving this on road trips of more than 700 miles and the best that I could get out of mine was 22 on the highway. With Turbo if you stay out of the boost you don't use it. You are driving on just the motor.
That is a funny line because while at the extreeme edge of internal combustion engines the 8,000+ hp top fuel motors are superchargedThe turbocharged engine stands to produce more peak horsepower than a comparable supercharged engine, mostly because the turbo does not require any power from the crankshaft
