Come by Gulf Coast Jaguar and see for yourself.
What is a Supercharger?
You’ve likely heard of turbocharged vehicles before. A supercharger is similar, giving the care more power by forcing additional air into the engine. Both turbocharging and supercharging are considered forced induction systems. They take the incoming engine air and compress it, which lets additional air into the cylinder. This allows more fuel to be injected, which in turn, gives more power than an engine without any sort of charging.
Supercharging can give an engine about 30 to 40 percent additional power, since it increases the pounds per square inch of pressure inside the engine from 14.7 psi to 20.7-22.7 psi. That’s a sizable jump! Supercharging does use a different power supply than turbocharging. Because it’s power comes from a belt, instead of the exhaust system, there isn’t any back pressure, meaning supercharging gives more boost at lower RPMS than turbocharging does.
