Victor Orellana Mr. Fyffe English IV 04/16/2017 Leafblowers vs Snails The majestic leaf blowers(superchargers), is a car add-on that makes your car faster. As well as the snail(turbo). But both are different, way different. A supercharger is an air compressor that increases the pressure or density of air supplied to an internal combustion engine. This gives each intake cycle of the engine more oxygen, letting it burn more fuel and do more work. A turbocharger, or turbo, is a turbine-driven forced induction device that increases an internal combustion engine 's efficiency and power output by forcing extra air into the combustion chamber.This improvement over a naturally aspirated engine 's power output is due to the fact that the…show more content…
Oil requirement: turbochargers get very hot and often tap into the engine’s oil supply. This calls for additional plumbing, and is more demanding on the engine oil. Superchargers typically do not require engine oil lubrication.” Most people use turbo’s for drift cars or track cars. But mostly drifting vehicles because the more power you got the easier it is to drift as the wheels can spin up quicker and the less traction you got with the tarmac the easier.("Engineering Explained: The Pros And Cons Of Turbochargers Vs Superchargers." ) Now the pros and cons of the majestic supercharger. Pro’s : Increased horsepower: adding a supercharger to any engine is a quick solution to boosting power. No lag: the supercharger biggest advantage over a turbocharger is that it does not have any lag. Power delivery is immediate because the supercharger is driven by the engine’s crankshaft. Low RPM boost: good power at low RPM in comparison with turbochargers. Price: cost effective way of increasing horsepower.(Engineering Explained: The Pros And Cons Of Turbochargers Vs Superchargers. ) Now the con’s Less efficient: the biggest disadvantage of superchargers is that they suck engine power simply to produce engine power. They’re run off an engine belt connected to the crankshaft, so you’re essentially powering an air pump with another air pump. Because of this, superchargers are significantly less efficient than turbochargers. Reliability: with all forced induction
