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.

Yes, you can drive without the Supercharger belt for as long as necessary.

I think you mean the Supercharger belt? You cannot drive anywhere without your accessory belt... You can drive as long as you want without your Supercharger belt but be prepared for a substantial loss in power.

now a days superchargers are replaced by the turbocharger. supercharger is taking drive from engine while turbocharger taking drive from exhaust gases.

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 be ramming into it. if the supercharger isn't producing air the engine will flood and stall.

A turbocharger is not typically more powerful than a supercharger but is able to offer a boost at lower speeds. The turbocharger is powered by engine exhaust while the supercharger uses power from the drive belt.

do not remove your supercharger belt, the engine is set up to work with supercharger. my belt broke on mine and i was told to replace it before i drive it to much

Yes, I once drove mine 300 miles home from a vacation this way with no damage done.

This car is equipped with a Supercharger. All superchargers whine. This is normal and is inherently something you live with when you drive a car equipped with a supercharger.

yes. I've had my 97 riv over 4yrs and have thrown 3 serpentine belts and have went without one for 4 months before replacing it again.

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.

If the vehicle came from the factory equipped with a left-hand sideview mirror, it must be on the vehicle.

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 the effort. The car runs very good without boost, for most driving. I continued to use premium fuel, of course. One could just cut the belt off and drive without the supercharger, if desired. So there you have it. P.S. go to Discussion for more tips.

The Buick that was supercharged was called the Ultra. On the engine there is another unit mounted on top of the engine. It is driven by a separate belt from the drive shaft. The engine without the supercharger has only one serpentine belt.

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 engine to be more efficient.

Need to remove, engine cover throttle body/intake drive belt fuel lines pcv valve hose spark plug wires for rear bank than you should be able to unbolt the supercharger

No! It is illegal to drive a car without a licence.

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 slippageBy pass valve is leakingHigher elevations will make you lose boost pressureEngine is running to lean or richSupercharger is being over spinned. (out of it's efficency)A larger supercharger drive pulley was added to the superchargerA smaller crank pulley was added to the engineTo much boost pressure for the by pass valve causing it to open up when you hit higer boost pressuresLeak in the ductingSupercharger is going badThose are just some of the more common reasons.
