Superchargers have become one of the most popular performance bolt-on products for all engine sizes--from the diminutive, but powerful, Honda and other import four cylinder engines, to Porsche and BMW engines, and Detroit's V6s and V8s. However, bolting a system on that works to the enthusiast's expectations and at the same time is reliable has been a "mystic art." No longer! As with turbochargers, Corky Bell provides clear and comprehensive information on how to select, size, and install a complete supercharger system that is both successful and reliable. This comprehensive book with numerous illustrations deals with all aspects of the supercharger system from the initial planning stages--what performance do I want from my vehicle? to how do I go about the installation? Corky begins at the beginning devoting chapters to the three basic types of superchargers, giving the reader a grounding in the pluses and minuses of the Roots type, centrifugal, and screw-type superchargers. From there he moves onto to the,other elements of a super-charger system, devoting a chapter each to: intercooling, electronic fuel injection, secondary components, and drive mechanisms. There are also chapters devoted to engine preparation, mounting the supercharger, and testing procedures. Each chapter is complete with accurate information, such as formulas for calculating necessary elements of the system.

How to Build Honda Horsepower

Honda performance enthusiasts all have one basic question when it comes to making their cars faster: "What parts work, and what parts don't?" The only way to answer that question is to install various parts on a car and test the power output on a dynamometer (dyno). Richard Holdener has done that in High Performance Honda Dyno Tests. Holdener's extensive testing provides dyno-proven data for all popular Honda performance parts, from air intake systems to exhausts, cams and cylinder heads to nitrous, turbos, and superchargers. There is even a chapter on engine build-ups. In addition, dyno tests on nearly every Honda model, from the single-cam DX to the 2.2L Prelude, are included. Acura models are covered as well, from the 1.8L LS through the GSR and Type R all the way up to exotic NSX. There is no better place to find performance answers than in this book.

How to Supercharge and Turbocharge GM LS-Series Engines

GM LS Series engines are some of the most powerful, versatile, and popular V-8 engines ever produced. GM LS series engines deliver exceptional torque and abundant horsepower, they are in ample supply, and a massive range of aftermarket parts are available. Some of the LS engines produce about one horsepower per cubic engine in stock form-that's serious performance. One of most common ways to produce even more horsepower is through forced air induction-supercharging or turbocharging. Right-sized superchargers and turbochargers and relatively easy tuning have grown to make supercharging or turbocharging an LS-powered vehicle a comparatively simple yet highly effective method of generating a dramatic increase in power. In How to Supercharge and Turbocharge GM LS Series Engines, supercharger and turbocharger design and operation are covered in detail, so the reader has a solid understanding of each system and can select the best system for their particular budget, engine, and application. The attributes of Roots-type and centrifugal-type superchargers as well as turbochargers are extensively discussed to establish a solid base of knowledge. Benefits and drawbacks of each system as well as the impact of systems on the vehicle are explained. Also covered in detail are the installation challenges, necessary tools, and the time required to do the job. Once the system has been installed, the book covers tuning, maintenance, and how to avoid detonation so the engine stays healthy. Cathedral, square and D-shaped port design heads are covered in terms of performance, as well as strength and reliability of the rotating assembly, block and other components. Finally, Kluczyk explains how to adjust electronic management system to accommodate a supercharger or turbocharger. How to Supercharge and Turbocharge GM LS Series Engines is the only book on the market specifically dedicated to forced air induction for LS series engines. It provides exceptional guidance on the wide range of systems and kits available for arguably the most popular modern V-8 on the market today.
