  • A little help

    I know this has probably been posted before, I just want some questions answered. What is the recommended centrifugal supercharger out there? Best power wise. I've heard bad things about SCDyne, so I'm staying away from that, but what else is there? Who has used what? How is it working for you?

    i guess it depends, you want quiet or loud? ive seen vortech v1 (cant remember trim) on a few saturns making some good power. i also have been informed on prochargers, which are pretty loud from what i understand. my case for superchargers, loud is good. i love hearing them whine.

      I don't really care about sound. I just want the power. If I get annoyed by the sound, I'll just turn up the music. Best charger to look for, toss it at me. I'm going to search for it right away.

        ok i just want to make sure too, you do know that its not going to be a kit. you are going to have to scrap everything together yourself and make a custom bracket to hold the s/c, which normally means removing the a/c unless you spend sometime getting around it. also you going to have forged goodness on the inside of motor? if not then you dont need something thats going to put out alot, unless you want to blow the motor.

        but i guess check out procharger and see if there is anything there that sparks your interest.

          I was thinking that I would remove the PS, and AC, toss the SC in the place of the AC, and what the fuck? I am using Abbreviations everywhere today. Anyways, yes, forged rods, but from what I read on SDA's website, I can use the hypereutectic pistons. I just want a reliable 190hp for now. When I feel like pumping MORE, I'll get another car and go TURBO. But, I will check out the procharger, thanks.

            YOu might as well get forged rods an pistons.

            You will find the hyper can be very strong, but they are also brittle. Under some detonation, a forged psiton will 90%of the time come out un damaged, but a hyper on the other hand will shatter. 90%of the time.

              Yeah.... I was thinking of that. I didn't want to spend too much on it, but at this point, looking at the cost-effectiveness of everything, I think I would want the high-end internals for my car. I'm also thinking, I like the SDA lightened crank, but I would like to take a 2000+ crank, and get that lightened, since it is stronger.

              Also, I was wondering, with the build, and the centrifugal supercharger setup, INTERCOOLED, about what would I be looking at in terms of WHP? Running about 4-5psi.

                DON't know power numbers. Not enough superchargers out there to measure 4-5psi on...off top of my head, 150-165ish.

                2000+ cranks are not stronger. They just have mor matrial to help absord vibraton...about 15lbs more material.

                  actually i put those sealed power hypereutectic pistons in my friends eclipse, and its detonated on him several times and detonated on me once (day i was putting new injectors and regulator on it). thats when i told him about it and he was like oh thats just a backfire. [img]{SMILIES_PATH}/shock.gif[/img] , but anyways pistons are still holding up. sure hypereutectics are so hard they do break easier, but i guess he has been lucky so far.

                    From what I read on SDA, they even survived a Rod Break, but the jury's still out on whether or not I'll get hypers of forged goodness. I have to see when I'm going to take it to the next step.

                      back to the start of this post, go take a look at speedmafia. they do a full kit for the ion, and i know you've got an s-car, but email them and see what they can do. i've been talking to them for a while working on a kit for the 2.4L ions, and they've been very friendly and eager to help. dunno if they can do an s-car kit, but it's worth a shot. (btw, they run prochargers on their kits)
