I know someone has thought of pulling the A/C off the 2.2 and replacing it with a supercharger. Unfortunatly i know crap about superchargers. I think that this would be feasable. Maybe the problem would be where to put the intercooler?!? I dont think you even need an intercooler, but it just helps with extra hp. Maybe i could go pull a charger off of a totalled cobra, lightning, grand-prix GTP, etc. I know that one of the main problems would be finding some mounting brackets so it would mount properly, and the existing belt fitting the pull system. Can anyone tell me if this would be worth my time or not, and what probs i could run into?

They wont fit on our engines. You need a centrifugal s/c not a roots or eaton type.. If you wanted to use one it would take way more work and money to make it worthwhile.

a centrifugal supercharger bolts up like the A/C or alternator does..

A roots blower, like used on the Cobra, or GTP, are bolted onto the intake manifold..

ok.... yeah that makes a lot of sense. Hmm.... could i just buy a centrifugal charger on the internet and slap it after modifying the brakets

sounded super simple in theory but in reality it wasnt great was the general consensus of the thread if i remember right

how could it not be. If you regulate it to about 7lbs boost then it would be just fine for the engine.

If you could make the brackets, intake tubing, and design a belt system, you can supercharge almost anything. You just need the centrifugal supercharger, an FMU, and an add'l in-line fuel pump. Whether all the money and time is worth it on a 2.2 is another story... most supercharger setups that are properly designed and non-intercooled give you 40-50% more horsepower. So on a 2.2, your talking like another 60 horse if your lucky, and even so...thats still lousy total power... might as well shoot it with a 75 shot and save some loot.

Well its hard to regulate a superchager inless you put a bypass valve on which would be even more work!! The supercharger is ran off of a belt, the faster the belt turns the more air is forced through the supercharger.
