What are the uses for a Eaton Supercharger?
The Eaton Supercharger is used to increase the overall torque power and driving ability. This also increases the economic benefits as the use of a supercharger leads to small cylinder tanks which is a good thing for your car.
Eaton M45 roots type supercharger
The M111.974 engine fitted to the 2003 R170 Mercedes-Benz SLK230 uses the Eaton M45 Roots-type supercharger.
It's an Eaton M62 roots type positive displacement supercharger with an electro-magnetic clutch
Eaton M90 Gen V
is a eaton m45
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.
A 1999 Grand Prix GTP uses an EATON M90 supercharger that displaces 90 cubic inches of air during every revolution. This results in a rating of 240 horsepower at the crank at 5200RPM, and a "pavement pounding" 280ft-lb of torque at 3600RPM!
5th gen eaton
Yes- Eaton setup. Came stock on IRLs.
Look into the eaton m62, I've also heard marsman.
Yes, its available from PFYC.com. It costs about $4400 and is made by a really nasty company that uses inferior bearings. If you can find one of the 18 Eaton/Magnausen kits then get one. They go on sale on grandamgt.com and gaownersclub.com from time to time.
The type of compressor is a Generation 3 Eaton M90b. It is a roots type blower.
Newer models have a bypass valve to lower parasitic power lose during cruising.
If you mean the supercharger look under intake box. Has a Eaton label on it.
Thomas Knight makes an Eaton supercharger kit for second generation Ford Probes and Mazda MX-6s. Check out boosthead.com.
it wont come compatibile but you can always make it
I have heard from a Jaguar Specialist that it is not that straightforward. That said, they did a conversion on an XJS to 5 speed manual and Supercharger at the same time. Some modification required to go into the XJS.
On a centrifugal supercharger(Paxton, vortech, procharger-yes. On a whipple /eaton- no because they are located between the throttle body and engine, BOV only work when the throttle body is between the supercharger and engine.
They have various kits available on-line if you Google it "eaton" supercharger. Or just get it from the dealer, it ain't that much.
Simply put, a turbocharger uses the exhaust to spin a turbine thus compressing air which is then forced into the intake. A supercharger is driven off the engine crankshaft and forces air into the intake. They both do the same thing but the turbocharger uses the exhaust gases to compress air and the supercharger uses the engine's motion.
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
A V8 Soupercoupe doesn't exist. There is the "LX" which has the V8 but the Supercoupe is a 3.8L V6 with an eaton supercharger.
yes of course,but it takes some work!you need a eaton m90 supercharger,fuel pump,biger injectors,blow off valve,intercooler if you run more then 7 psi boost,pulleys.....but you can do it with little bit of work!
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.
If your supercharger is an Eaton type supercharger and it is making noise that is an early indication that the supercharger might need a rebuild. A lot of times the noise is actually coming from a little coupler that is located in the inside of the supercharger. This coupler has 6 holes in it and over time these rounded holes will wear out and become an oval shape. Once it becomes oval shape the supercharger… Read More
The turbo uses exhaust gas the spin up the turbine in order to compress more air into the combustion chamber for more power while the supercharger uses serpentine belt driven from the crankshaft to spin up the turbine.
The supercharger is an engine power adder for vehicles. It's purpose is to make an engine more powerful instead of using a larger heavier engine. The Grand Prix GTP uses a supercharger on its V6 engine to make power levels comparable to some naturally aspirated V8 engines.
This all depends on what type of supercharger it is. If you have an Eaton supercharger it is possible that it might be a pressed on pulley. If this is the case then you will need a pulley puller. If the supercharger is a Vortech, Paxton, or ProCharger they all use key ways. So all you need to do is take the bolt off and the pulley might come off. Some times the pulley will… Read More
Neither is safer. they are two different ways of achieving the same thing i.e. compressing the air being fed into an engine. A supercharger uses engine power and is less efficient, but responds quicker. A turbocharger uses exhaust gas pressure, but there is a time lag penalty.
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.
Yes, I would highly recommend it. The supercharger uses a speical oil called, "Supercharger Oil." You can get this oil from GM, however it does cost around $8-$12 a bottle. The oil should be check every 3000 miles and changed out once it smells bad or looks dirty.
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… Read More
Haha. Well! Your in luck! I have a 1995 Mercury Cougar XR-7 We both (You and I) own Supercoupe cars! The V6 supercoupes used an Eaton M90 Supercharger, But for the 4.6 Litre engines, I am planning on using a Kenne Bell Supercharger That fits flush with the stock hood! Check it out! http://www.kennebell.net/superchargers/ford/gt96-03_2v/gt96-04.htm
Engine Name: 3800 Series II Supercharged Engine Type: 90 degree V6 Displacement: 3.8L (231 cubic inches) Horsepower: 240 HP at 5,200RPM Torque: 280 ft-lb at 3,600RPM Compression Ratio: 8.5:1 Supercharger Type: EATON Generation 3 M90 Supercharger Displacement: 90 cubic inches per revolution.
Turbo belt? The Turbo operates from exhaust from the engine ... A supercharger uses a belt perhaps.
The supercharger, which uses a belt, driven by the engine, to forcer more air into the intake manifold, and a turbocharger, which uses a turbine driven by exiting exhaust gasses, to do the same thing.
The supercharger uses a belt to drive a compressor that feeds more air to the engine such that more fuel can be ignited; which produces more power. This does have a parasitic drag on the engine, negating some of the gain in power. The turbocharger uses otherwise wasted exhaust gas heat and pressure energy to spin a compressor. This does not have the same parasitic loss as the supercharger and therefore yields a higher efficiency.
Yes you can. There are many things you need to do to compensate for it. The compression ration of the GT is 9.4:1, whilest the GTP is 8.1:1. You need lower compression pistons to handle the boost. ZZPerformance.com, and 3800performance.com actually sell kits that give you everything you need in order to apply the supercharger to your N/A 3800, including the Eaton M90 Roots Type Blower. Check it out! I ordered mine from ZZP. Hope… Read More
Every manufacture measures it differently. Some will take the inter-rib and measure it to the other inter-rib. Others might take the outer-rib to outer-rib. Vortech, Paxton, Eaton all do inter-rib to inter-rib. Thank you, From www.SuperchargersOnline.com
The SLE is a Limited Editon Sedan with the 3.8 fuel injected V6. The SSEi is the sportier version with a Eaton Supercharger which ads about 35hp to the same engine. At least, in my experience. There may be some smaller engines in the SLE but the SSEi, I believe, always has the 3.8.
While it's very changeable via tuning and physical modifications, I believe the stock WRX is 7-8 psi, and the stock STi is 14 psi. To get really into it, an Eaton M62 supercharger installed with stock pulleys is usually between 2-5 psi, and an Eaton M90 installed with stock pulleys will net 7-9 psi (just incase you're cool enough to try going the route of supercharging)
Eaton, Ohio, is in area code +1 937, the same as Dayton. (The plus sign means "insert your international access prefix here." From a GSM mobile phone, you can enter the number in full international format, starting with the plus sign. The most common prefix is 00, but North America (USA, Canada, etc.) uses 011, Japan uses 010, Australia uses 0011, and many other countries use different prefixes.)
It uses a special blend of oil that is called supercharged oil from GM. Here is a link similar to the one you are looking for www.superchargersonline.com/product_listing_2M.asp?Cat2=accessories_sc_oil
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
Open and read your owner's manual. Most superchargers utilize engine oil for lubrication, as opposed to self-contained supercharger lubrication. If that is the case with yours, which I think you will find it is, then changing the engine oil/filter is all you need do. Correction: GP Supercharger uses a separate oil from that of the engine. Read the manual, check out Grandprix owners groups like ClubGP and GrandPrix.net.
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"
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.
gm supercharger oil for the supercharger. any oil you prefer for the engine oil.
in 1990 the eaton supercharger only contains oil (self contained) air charge is cooled via air to air intercooler. looks like a small radiator, that is what all that cast alum.tubing goes to and from.(3.8L sc)
