Supercharging is the compression of an engine's intake charge above atmospheric pressure by means of an air pump driven by a crankshaft. This is not to be confused with a turbocharger which is an air pump that is exhaust driven. A supercharger can provide boost faster than a turbo and over a much broader engine rpm range. The disadvantages of supercharging are higher power demands, more mechanical noise and more complex control requirements.
An air compressor designed to force air, under pressure, into the cylinder. Can be mounted between the carburetor and cylinders or between the carburetor and the atmosphere. It boosts the power of the engine. Sway Bar Sometimes called the "anti-sway bar," "stabilizer bar," or even "roll-bar." It is usually a round bar, which connects the left wheel suspension assembly with the right side. It may be found at the front and/or rear. Its main function is to keep both wheels rolling at the same rate when meeting bumps; but it also affects handling. A front anti-roll bar increases understeer and a rear bar increases oversteer.
Mechanical pump or compressor for increasing the pressure of induction air or gases. A supercharger can provide boost faster than an exhaust-driven turbocharger and over a much broader engine rpm range, however they have higher power demands, more mechanical noise and more complex control requirements.
