Getting the supercharger installed is always the easy part (especially if you get it done with us!) but there is still a lot that needs to be done. This is where our supercharger tuning & maintenance tips coming in handy. A supercharger is a more sophisticated alternative to the well-known turbocharger and with sophistication comes variety. First of all let’s start off with supercharger tuning tips.
When it comes to your car, you need to know the make and model of your car, and the year, size and type of the engine. The engine type is particularly important as everything is based around that. You will need this information to find the right types of supercharger or blower kits for your car – Root, twin screw or centrifugal (the three main types). Be sure to understand if your car is street legal. A lot of superchargers are designed for street racing and there’s a good chance they won’t pass normal car regulations, something you should understand coming in.
