    Boosted VW power gains
    Posted on Tuesday, 04 June 2019
    A question I get asked a LOT, is "how much power will my engine make with one of your supercharger kits on it?" It's the proverbial how long is a piece of string type of question, so my standard response is that it all depends on how much boost yo...

    VW AMR 500 Supercharger in 1970 Bay - Boost
    Stock 1600 twin port supercharger conversion in my early VW bay bus that I am developing as a kit.

    This is a shot of the boost. It's reading about 7psi although the engine wants to stall when on boost so I'm not sure if this is the max or if it's possibly got some more to go.

    I managed to take the bus for a drive and found that it's pinking (detonating) really bad so I'm guessing that the main jets are far too small ( I'm running a Dellorto DHLA.) If it is leaning out on boost / under...

    I managed to take the bus for a drive and found that it's pinking (detonating) really bad so I'm guessing that the main jets are far too small ( I'm running a Dellorto DHLA.) If it is leaning out on boost / under revs this could possibly be the cause of the stalling. I really need to get some bigger jets before I can progress any further

    VW AMR 500 Supercharger in 1970 Bay - Second Idler pulley / Stalling on boost
    Stock 1600 twin port supercharger conversion in my early VW bay bus that I am developing as a kit.

    In this video I've added a second idler pulley to help with the belt slipping. Whilst the belt is not as wobbly as without it - it's still not a great fix. I will need to look into a spring loaded pulley arrangement to make sure the slack is kept out of the belt

    Another thing to note is that the engine seems to want to stall when it comes on boost, not too sure what the cause is. You can see...

    Another thing to note is that the engine seems to want to stall when it comes on boost, not too sure what the cause is. You can see it in this video when I open the throttle fast - the boost increases and then the engine wants to stall. If I open the throttle slowly the engine will pick up speed no issue.

    VW AMR 500 Supercharger in 1970 Bay - Wobbly belt
    Stock 1600 twin port supercharger conversion in my early VW bay bus that I am developing as a kit. This is the first time that the engine has run so working though some issues. Belt tensioning is a problem with the way that I have the drive setup so need to add another idler pulley to keep the belt tensioned correctly. Also finding that the engine is stalling when it comes onto boost. Not sure what's causing that but will work through the issues one at a a time until it's done.

  • Inspired by my recent trip to speed week it's time to get back into the supercharger project. Had a bit of a rethink about the setup and made a few design changes. Been sorting out the final design issues tonight and will make a start on the fabrication later in the week.
