Can one drive a vw corrado without the factory supercharger?
Of course you can run your VW corrado without the factory supercharger just remove the belt of the supercharger and you're done the engine will still vaccum air through the filter which's connected to the supercharger.
What will happen to the car other than that if you're intrested to know
1-The car will lose some of it's power cause of the lose of the supercharger. so if you try race your corrado your chances to lose are higher!
2- the car air\fuel mixture MIGHT be rich(more fuel than air) and as I said might.
3- You'll get better gas mileage cause the car is runned by a MAP sensor(Manifold Air Pressure sensor) which messuares the pressure the supercharger is pushing and converts that into a signal to the ECU(Engine Control Unit) so it knows how much fuel that air needs for the right combustion so when you remove your supercharger the air pressure will drop to be in the minus area meaning less fuel will be injected so you'll get better gas mileage.
I'm no god so this info might not be 100% accurate but what I'm 100% sure of that you'll get no harm AT ALL by JUST removing the belt of your supercharger.
ANSWER 2: not actually that simple. you'll need to bypass some things and you WILL lose a lot of power (a semi truck will be able to beat you off the line). mine also started to choke around 3500rpm. the gas mileage is worse. more info is to be found on www.corrado-club.ca.
Your 1998 Grand Prix GTP supercharger has failed so can you just remove the belt and drive it as a standard 3.8L V6?
this is actually a yes and no answer. because the supercharger only engages when the throttle is pressed hard enough, yes it is possible to drive it without a supercharger. the no part of the answer is that any time you try to speed up quickly or pass someone the computer will tell the fuel pump to dump lots of fuel into the injectors to compensate for the added air the supercharger is supposed to…
If you remove the supercharger belt on a 3.8l GTP are you going to have poorer gas mileage I know you will lose power?
The Supercharger can be disconnected. My 1998 Ultra had a pulley lockup which caused the belt to come off. I pulled the intact supercharger belt out of the way of moving parts till I had a chance to work on it. A few months later I replaced the pulley and belt, which required raising the engine, pulling bolts out of the motor mount, and weaving the belt into place. I'm not sure it was worth…
A supercharger is controlled by its pulley size. The smaller the supercharger drive pulley is, the higher in boost pressure you will see. Now if you go with a larger crank pulley, this too will cause you to see more boost. So, in all honestly, the only way to really over boost your supercharger is when you mess around with the pulleys.
You don't. It uses the same oil for lube as the engine. When you change the engine oil, you are changing the supercharger oil. * On the 92 PA ultra, The supercharger is sealed. The oil plug is next to the drive pulley, on the side closest to the firewall. Suck the old oil out with a turkey baster or similar, and refill with a high quality synthetic, or with GM specific Supercharger oil.
A supercharger, basically feeds more air into the cylinders to drive the pistons, so more combustion with the fuel is possible, and therefore more power. It is driven mechanically (directly from the engine) so it works straight way, opposed to a turbocharger which works from the exhaust pressure, and suffers 'turbo lag'. A supercharger is a device that makes the pressure of the fuel-air mixture in an internal combustion engine go up. A supercharger allows…
The simple answer is - you can't ! Professionally made computers have a recovery partition in the hard-drive for the user to restore the machine to its original factory settings if needed - OR - it comes with a recovery disk (CD or DVD). If you've built your own computer - it will not have a recovery option !
A lot of factors effect boost. The most common is belt slippage By pass valve is leaking Higher elevations will make you lose boost pressure Engine is running to lean or rich Supercharger is being over spinned. (out of it's efficency) A larger supercharger drive pulley was added to the supercharger A smaller crank pulley was added to the engine To much boost pressure for the by pass valve causing it to open up when…
How can you restore your acer aspire one or m1610 to factory settings and can this be done without a CD?
Theoretically any combustion engine can be fitted with a supercharger, but don't expect it to be an easy, bolt-on job. Carb, intake manifolds and drive pulleys would have to be heavily modified. If it's an EFI engine you won't have the carb to worry about, but would instead have to have the engine control remapped.
Turbo and superchargers are examples of heat turbines used to compress and pressurize intake air charges for higher power outputs. A turbocharger uses the heat energy from exhaust gases to drive its turbine. In comparison a supercharger uses the mechanical energy of the motor through the drive belt system to run its turbine. A supercharger produces parasitic power and fuel efficiency losses through this set-up. For these reasons a turbocharger has higher efficiency.
I'm no mechanic but i think i had the same problem. first off i would check all the pulleys and belts on the engine. assuming you already did this . it could be your rotor pack in the supercharger or it could be the nose drive. you can check your nose drive by taking it off the supercharger and inspecting it by turning the pulley. if everything is tight and no worn bearing sound is…
Depends on the how hard the vehicle is driven. 99% of all factory supercharged vehicles are using eaton roots type superchargers/Positive displacement. Eaton superchargers web site states, "they are designed to last the life of the vehicle". The only centrifugal (paxton,vortech,procharger,rotex type) factory superchargered vehicles (that I know of) are the previous keonisegg and the Alpina B7Centrifical superchargers. Eaton states that the oil in the gear case is designed for the life of the supercharger/doesn't…
Your car makes terrible noises when you have your foot on the break as soon as it's put in park the noise stops and a mechanic said it was the Supercharger and that it would cost 3000.00 to replace.?
Yes indeed it is very expensive for tyhe repair of a supercharger however you may still drive your car around without that belt being attached. Additional anwer: If you supercharger has oil then it is unlikely the culprit. I went through all this before and it ended up being the rubber isolator on the harmonic balancer that was creating the noise only at idle. When under load (accel/decel or constant speed) it went away. This…
