The American Car Centre are official agents for the world renowned Magnuson Superchargers.
WHAT IS A SUPERCHARGER?
A supercharger works on the same principal as a turbo in that it drives more oxygen into the combustion chamber giving faster burn and therefore more power. However, unlike the turbo, which relies on reversing exhaust gases, the supercharger takes its power directly off the crank shaft. There’s no doubt that using the exhaust as a power source is effective and a turbo will deliver you significantly greater acceleration and higher speeds. However, using the exhaust is much like putting a huge cork in the pipe and is therefore somewhat counter-prodcutive. A supercharger, on the other hand, draws its power directly from the crankshaft and drives air into the combustion mix without any negative effects on power. In a nutshell, it’s much more efficient.
WHY CHOOSE A MAGNUSON SUPERCHARGER?
- Whilst your Magnuson Supercharger will be a bolt on it will run as if it was factory installed because they are all manufactured and calibrated to Original Equipment Manufacturer standards.
- Magnuson Superchargers also use Eaton rotors exclusively – the same supercharger rotors found in virtually all of the OEM supercharged applications from Audi, GM, Jaguar, and Ford.
- Magnuson Supercharger Kits are tested to the highest air pollution and carbon emission standards
- Magnuson kits are known for their driveability and reliability, achieved through their Powertrain Integration approach. Simply put, this is the process of recalibrating the engine and transmission control programmes to work with the altered induction path and boost pressure of the supercharger. This results in a seamless and consistent delivery of power over the entire RPM range, not just high end. It also means that your vehicle will continue to meet emissions and fuel economy standards.
