How to install a Supercharger
The supercharger serves the purpose of aiding the engine in generating more power. It sends more air into the engine making it acquire more fuel, thereby generating more power. The superchargers and turbochargers perform the same function. The way they get energy to operate differs; the supercharger takes energy from the engine while the turbo takes energy from the exhaust gases. The supercharger install guide below explains the removal and installation instructions:
