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 need changing, but say if they are frequently raced 20k miles cahanges are ok. I know centrifugal types have problems with drive belt life, especially when pushing higher boost. Prochargers recommend 6k mile oil changes for thier self containted oiled superchargers.
The Edelbrock E-Force supercharger does require forged internals if you want your engine to last for a long time.
Yes, you can drive without the Supercharger belt for as long as necessary.
The most common and normal signs will be: * Oil leakage from the supercharger * Supercharger making a knocking noise * Lower or no boost pressure * Oil not present inside the supercharger
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.
Procharger is a supercharger. It is a brand of centrifugal superchargers.
I am a used car wholesaler and although I do not know about a 2004 I have seen 98s-01s with 145k or more that the supercharger is still in great working condition so i feel it would be a safe purchase.
gm supercharger oil for the supercharger. any oil you prefer for the engine oil.
Depending on the supercharger, it will require a special blend of synthetic oil. This synthetic oil normally is located in the supercharger itself. Most superchargers will have a hex nut located on the front of the supercharger. This area is used to drain and fill up the supercharger oil. You cannot use just any synthetic oil, you will have to use "Supercharger Oil"
Can a supercharger work on a 97 ford probe
No supercharger. SS stands for Super Sport.
A supercharger is belt driven and a turbocharger is exhaust driven
Supercharger - comics - was created in 1997.
by using a supercharger u get 30 to 40% more horse power than when compared to an engine with out a supercharger....
Wynjammer is about the only company that makes a supercharger for the chevy 4.3L. It's a belt driven turbo style supercharger like a Vortech instead of a roots type supercharger like an Eaton or Whipple.
any internal combustion engine can use a turbo or SC, the question is how much $$ and how long will motor last with the added stress. Which will be determined also by how much boost you choose to push.
no you cannot intercool a neuspeed supercharger, a supercharger runs on a pulley not a pipe there is a way to cool them down but its pointless unless you have enough money to do so.
A supercharger is a group of products that add significant horsepower to your vehicle. Generally they are after market modifications, and can be very expensive depending on the type and impact the supercharger makes.
You don't have to replace the supercharger you will just have no performence power and bad gas milage, but you will not harm the supercharger. Same thing happen to me, year later I replaced my supercharger belt and supercharger was fine.....dont wait get it fixed dont hurt the GTP!!!!!
There is no button for the supercharger. The supercharger is always on because it is being driven by the belts of the engine. When you step on the gas, there is a vacuum line that is hooked up to the supercharger in which will close a little valve causing the boost to be diverted into the engine.
Last I heard, "no" but one may be in development. Check out www.mazda3forums.com , it's a great resource.
That depends on how big the supercharger is. -it is 7.0 psi-
Eaton M45 roots type supercharger
Go with the supercharger if you can.
Go with a supercharger or a turbocharger.
Yes, on 1997 and 1998 only. TRD supercharger.
