    Supercharger ideal

    I was thinking about it and was wondering what would happen if you put a supercharger on the intake and then put one that would pull the exhaust out at faster than the engine could push it out. I think this would make a powerfull set up. What do you guzs think and can/has this be done?

    I think the power required from the engine to power the supercharger on the exhaust would be more than it would help and make for an overall net loss. I never heard of this done. The closest thing that might work is something like a procharger and then it goes through the exhaust side of a turbocharger before it gets to the engine and then use the other side to suck the exhaust out.

    Procharger or any other supercharger were not designed to handle these kind of extreme temps. Unless you intercool the air 1st before it hits the supercharger.. I cannot think of any way this would work.. Plus headers at WOT are really putting out some air, I would think putting a restrictive blower to suck the air out would be more of a hinderence..

    sorry for the spelling..
