Expert Solution
To determine

The statement that is not a characteristic of a supercharger.

### Explanation of Solution

The function of the superchargers is to increase the pressure and density of air into the intake manifold thus providing better torque. These air pumps are driven directly by the engine’s crankshaft with the help of a V-belt. The drive belt connects the engine to the pulley connect to the rotor shaft...
