Supercharger in an Eagle?
« on: July 18, 2007, 03:19:42 PM »
i was just curious, if i put a supercharger in my SX4, would that give it a lot more speed/accelaration, if so, roughly how much of a difference?  also, where would i be able to find something like that?

there is one for the 4.0.. i was thinking if i did keep my 258 id put a 4.0 head on it and use the intake then i could most likely use the supercharger.. but now im looking for a v8 and i found a supercharger for that. just no turbo

 gopac,
          Have you been keeping up with :censored: Datson building the supercharger from a Toro leaf blower impeller? Very interesting.

  The carb has to be tricked out too. Normally you can't pressurize the carb. the usual way would be put the carb inside a sealed box or draw air through the intake side of the turbo/super charger.

http://www.avengersuperchargers.com/ look in products, they have one for the AMC/Jeep 4.0 HO. Just $4295.00 + tax/s&h. & the cost of converting to Jeep EFI.  It would work great if you're a millionaire who's into Eagles. Ha.

Doubt it would fit under the hood.

How about this: From 505 Performance. http://505performance.com/



God that's sexy. No way it could fit into an Eagle, though.

This may be a little more reasonable: http://505performance.com/Our_Turbo_System.html Still almost $4grand, though.

Shucks;

You can turbo and/or supercharge anything you've a mind to.

Just approach it with the correct RM (or SouthbendM, in this case) slant - lol

It's all about desire and willingness to innovate.

Check this one out...

http://turbostude.com/

Some serious ingenuity from this brother gearhead!  ;D

I recall another guy using a FIAT turbo on a Honda Goldwing some years back too.

I did an old "AK Miller" turbo kit on a 2000cc Pinto one time and used radiator caps
for adjustable blow off along with water injection to help prevent unwanted
detonation. Crude - but, it worked well enough to blow off more than one Pinto
basher - including a friends Mercedes. :)

have a great one

There are some books about super charging AMC cars.  I see them on ebay from time to time but you can buy them from a web site too.  I had it marked before my hard drive failed.  I will try to find it again.

Depends a lot on your budget and native abilities;

Richard Datson's material is good and will give you a lot of
insight and food for thought.
Poor boys - like me - dig insight, inexpensive information and home brew solutions.
Check out the link to Datson's books on the above mentioned "Gator"
supercharger site. It helps too that He's a heck of a nice guy and a Studebaker/AMC fan.
If you've got the bones for "turn key" and/or low fabrication
intensive routes  :) you will find a number of vendors who can help you with
turbochargers, superchargers and fuel injection systems, etc..
In addition to Datson's 21st century turbo/supercharging book I liked
His AMC survival guide too.
My view is heavily slanted by my pocket book and some RM so keep that in mind.
My favorite thing - in my misspent youth  ;D - was dethroning the local fancy lads with
my low dollar "sleepers" -- waay, waay to much fun! -- Ah, the memories.
Whatever ya do have fun with it!!
The rule in our house is "If it ain't fun - get another hobby!"
Remember - If you can't "drive it like you stole it" without constant worry about how
you'll fix it if it breaks it won't be the kind of fun it should be for you.

Have a great day  :)
