.- "Dirt Cheap Supercharger" Page -.

This page is intended to be a forum for the discussion of  specifications & applications for the poor man's supercharger, AKA the "smog pump".

Click here to read the original E-mail post that started the avalanche of questions, for which I regrettably have not had the time to give proper attention.
Here in the original post, you will also find almost all the information and experience I currently possess on this subject.

-- Those of you who are browsing this page for the first time, as the result of a internet search for "supercharger".  Please note that although these pumps can be ganged and used on  larger engines, the aim here is mainly toward use with small displacements. (i.e. cycles, go-carts, etc...) --

Please send in your own pertinent comments, pictures, etc... and they will be posted here for everyone's benefit. (I promise!)

.......Attention -- If there is someone in the Chattanooga area owning a flowbench or high volume flowmeter who is willing to help in this research, please contact me, and I'll see that we get together on this project and post some meaningful figures.

P.S.  I apologize for the pathetic quality of the photographs.  I'll try to get some better ones up as soon as possible.
