Surbo's effect on supercharged cars
A supercharger is used to compress air for more engine power. It is driven by the pulley of the engine, and as such, it loads the engine initially as an airconditioner would. If the vehicle is automatic, this may be a hindrance at low speeds, when the rpm is low and the gearbox changes up too soon. As the Surbo pre-compresses the air, it provides more very low rpm torque to the engine, so that it can rev faster, and therefore turn the supercharger sooner so that it can start compressing the air earlier.
We've fitted the Surbo on a 2008 Mercedes E class car with a 1.8 Kompressor engine. The effect was a strong buildup of torque from the mid range, and easy gear kickdown. There was a sporty engine note. The Surbo was fitted inside the original conical filter element, and totally hidden from view.
The owner said pickup was better. The car originally had a fuel consumption of 13 km/l in Singapore and would cover more than 600 km per tank, but on a trip to Ipoh from Singapore averaging 140 kph, it consumed only half a tank.
This was the same method as for the 2003 Mercedes C180 Kompressor as the filter was the same. For the C180, normally the supercharging would only be felt at around 70 to 80 kph, but with the Surbo, the assistance would come earlier.
Done by our dealer in Thailand, the 407 bhp supercharged and turbcharged hybrid Volvo 2017 XC90 T8 2.0 had a "violent first gear" and could reach top speed very quickly. Videos to be uploaded soon.
Another supercharged car to have Surbo fitted was the VW Tiguan 1.4 (twin charged with turbocharger). This felt even stronger than the Tiguan 2.0 turbo with a Surbo. A Jetta with the same engine but tuned to over 200 bhp was also equipped with Surbo. Just added is a twin-charged Golf GT 1.4 with 168 bhp, owned by an old customer. So far so good, he said.
If you also have a supercharged vehicle and wish to have even more engine power, please come and try the Surbo.
