Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

With great power comes great responsibility; when working with superchargers, you’d better know what you’re doing if you don’t want your engine to wind up on the scrap heap. This book contains the critical information you need to know to make more power and do it safely. Whether you want to learn more about your factory-supercharged vehicle, increase its power level, install an aftermarket supercharger, or create your own forced-induction system, the Supercharger Performance Handbook is what you need. You’ll learn:
 
* How different superchargers work, including Roots, twin-screw, centrifugal, and many more
* How to plan every aspect of your supercharger upgrade or conversion
* Why managing heat is critical for any supercharged engine
* Why supercharged engines need excellent fuel and ignition management and how to get it
* How supercharging started, how it developed, and where forced-induction technology is going in the future
 
Put simply, the Supercharging Performance Handbook is the one book that anyone interested in superchargers must read.

Synopsis:

The Supercharging Performance Handbook covers all aspects of supercharging a vehicle, whether carbureted or fuel-injected. Packed with thorough explanations of the different types of superchargers and aftercoolers available, expert guidance to help the reader decide which supercharger is right for which application, and in-depth discussion of such topics as efficiency, proper sizing, proper installation, and supporting systems modification, Supercharging Performance Handbook provides the knowledge you need to significantly increase your vehicle’s horsepower.
