Supercharger?

Ive been thinking about it for a while, and it probably wont be a long ass time before I even will be able to get one, but whats the scope on superchargers for ludes? Ive scowered around and havent really seen anything about them, mostly all turbo talk.

any comments on the subject?

thanks guys

Re: Supercharger?

The only one that is every really talked about is the Jackson Racing kit, commonly referred to as the JRSC. This has been installed at least once on a 4g, though the kit was built for a 5g and I'm not sure what (if anything) needed to be modified to fit the earlier car.

As far as I know there are no centrifugal superchargers on the market that will work in a Prelude. Turbocharging is often seen as being superior but I see this mainly as bollocks. Both have their drawbacks and in all seriousness it comes down to personal preference.

Are you set on the idea of supercharging or are you open to discussion? Depending on what you want the car for a turbo may be more suited.

Re: Supercharger?

the main deal is realy I don't have the money or time or capability really to turbo my car. from what I have looked up, you always have to be checking your engine and professionally tuning it and whatnot, and idk if I could always be doing that. I just thought super charger because that stuff is easy to put in and would give a nice litte hp gain

Re: Supercharger?

As far as I know the, the only big modification to make a JRSC work on a 4G is that you have to pound on the firewall a little bit to get more clearance for the SC.

SDX...my advice is...just do research...lots and lots of it...Seriously. Otherwise you'll just be getting in way over your head.

Re: Supercharger?

You are mistaken about the turbo always needing tuning, and the SC not. You are still putting more air into your engine, thusly you need more fuel. You still need it to be tuned. And the reason people are always tuning their cars is because boost is a fricken addiction! Haha, once you have it you will ALWAYS want more and more! I guarantee that if you get a SC, you will be looking into a reduced pulley kit to push more air :P

Anyways, the JRSC made for the 5th gens, will fit our 4th gens. There is/was a couple people on preludepower that did them and just had to slightly modify their firewall ( see: sledge hammer ) to get it to fit properly. As of recently, it has been what I've been looking into for my lude, as I don't need/want big gains, but more spunk would be nice.

As many people say, set goals for yourself, and work towards them. AFAIK, people have reached 250 hp on h22's with the JRSC, which is plenty for me. If you want any more, I would strongly recommend going the turbo route. Hope this helps a little.

Theres the link to PP.com the build thread for it.

Re: Supercharger?

From what I'VE read, you can SC a 4th gen prelude by using the JRSC for the 5th gen, and as long as you run Innovative motor mounts, or some other sturdy ass mount, you'll be fine. Because there is a few inches at most between the belt and the firewall lol. But out of the whopping 3 Supercharged 4th gens I've seen, you can do it with nice aftermarket mounts

Also, supercharging typically is more reliable because you aren't adding as many parts, but a supercharger doesn't make half as much power as a turbo will... Typically. This could be false if you are running a tiny turbo that spools very fast. Although with a supercharger, you have instant power, with a turbo, you wait for it to spool up and then you get your oomph.

But the guy above me is correct, anytime you modify your engine in any way, I suggest a tune, but ESPECIALLY when going FI.

Re: Supercharger?

honestly, if I had the money, I would supercharge my car. I am happy with my car power wise right now, which is weird to hear anyone say. I just want a little more low end, my car has no balls outside of vtec.

Exactly. It would be so much fun having your 180lb of torque come in at probably 2500 rather than a whopping 150 only when above 6.5k :P

Re: Supercharger?

To solve all your problems...you should prolly just compound charge your motor.
