Can a supercharger and a turbo attach to the same engine?
Hello, No. Both systems blow compressed air to the combustion chamber and you have to choose 1 option or the other. Hope this help.
No, it is possible. VW has done it to their Golf a few times apparently. Check out this thread on it. http://www.answerbag.com/q_view/81096
yes, you can have both, but the turbo must feed the supercharger and it'd have to be custom.
yes it's been done, but it reqires a water metanol injection kit for once it exceeds 1 atmosphere of boost. it has been done to a mustang gt500 and made 1000hpwith no other engine upgrades besides fuel mapping and the water/meth kit.
i know u can do it with a grand prix gtp but idk bout a camaro....
Yes, it is possible, it is called Twin Charging. Google search it for more info.
ya but you will need to see if your tranny will handle the hp and torque that the motor is gonna be throwing out because its not a pretty sight when one comes undone
Yes. But its dumb. The motor will only handle so much boost at a reliable level. And either system should be able to supply it by itself. Why run 8 pounds of boost from the turbo, and 8 pounds of boost from the supercharger, when you can fun 16 pounds of boost from just the turbo or the supercharger?
i agree one or the other or you could put twin turbos and not use a super charger but both would be a waste
Yes, as others have pointed out it's called twin-charging. The systems are complicated but also very effective... The Lancia S4 built for Group B rally is a prime example. Typically the supercharger is connected to the drive-train through the use of belts and an electrically controlled clutch that allows it to disconnect once the turbo has spooled up.
zzperformance has performed the setup on the GM 3800 and the results are insane
if you have enough money i would go with a ProCharger man........that is one crazy charger man...
yes a turbo and a supercharger can go on the same engine........but if your not running a diesel engine then its not worth going through the trouble....and the turbo must feed into the supercharger........of you feed the supercharger into the turbo....you will lose the turbo in about thirty seconds.....
