Default Supercharger

Does anybody know what work is involved in fitting a supercharger to a 2.4 n/a engine?

Here's the guy to ask.....

PT whipple supercharger kit: IN, 46107


But it looks like you have a turbo/GT car and I'm pretty sure they were only made for the very early model N/A cruisers.

Without his profile filled in, can't tell where he's from. But he did say 2.4 N/A so I should have caught that.

Sorry I just recognised his sig from the uk site. Why we didnt get the turbo i dont know! I'd have bought it!

Darylh - I'm not sure that the supercharger is worth the money from reading other posts. If it was me I'd go down the turbo route but do a bit reading up first. Start with the link CREWZIN posted.

Man don't tell "fabreezai" that. He's in the middle of a whipple install right now. He's probably 3/4 of the way through. If you get a complete kit, it's MUCH safer to do a supercharger than a turbo retrofit.

Check out "fabreezai's" thread here;

I was just going on what ive read and the price some have paid for the kit. Ive always preferred schargers but the turbo seems more popular to retro fit in the uk since we never had a turbo model to buy new. Our government dont like us having fun you see! Prices will vary between us and uk.

Been keeping up with that thread as well

As an example, some insurance companies wont insure your car if you supercharge it. Others will but may double your cost because of it. The cost becomes more than what you paid for the kit in the first place. Therefore not worth the money and time you have spent. Either dont tell them and risk them not paying if you have an accident or find an understanding insurer. Not sure how it works in the US?

It's based on you vin# here as far as insurance. If you add it later doesn't seem to mater. Political climate here trying to influence manufactures on what to do and not. Based on what is best for the masses.
