that may not be tru, there is one I forget what it was called though, donnie mentioned it a while ago, he said it was an option for him a while back. Ian ask donnie he should be able to help you out.SHAWN said:Sorry there are no bolt on superchargers avaliable for the KA24DE !!!!!
Oooh! Post the name/address! I'd be really interested in talking to these guys.Sleeper said:I was seriously looking into this last spring. No one makes one for are car, at least at that time. I called vortec and they said that they don't have one for our cars and nothing was in the works. But, they gave me a shops address in California that will do custom one of a kind set-ups for about $4000 and they need the car for 3-4weeks. I'm in CT so that was out. I guess once they do it once they might have a kit. I forget the shops name but do a search, I posted it several months back.
yes understandable but who really cares? our cars make that mid range hp and tq already. so a supercharger isnt all that needed, at least IMO. Correct me if i'm wrong but supercharger it speeds up the belt timing, while a turbocharger adds boost pressure for the air? so what i'm saying a supercharger adds lowend speed (which i think the altimas already has enough lowend) while turbo's boost raises at a higher rpm.. which in theory with the 4000 rpm peak hp... would sustain and higher that on the topend?mrdeucie said:turbos and superchargers give you power in different parts of the powerband I think.

Both a turbo and supercharger add boost ... the difference is where the boost comes in , turbos are exhaust driven and take some time for the exhaust to turn the turbine fast enough to make boost ,thats called lag , where a supercharger is driven by a belt off the crank , so it is instant boost , no lag .... they will both make boost on the high end so they will both make high end power , but a SC will make power off idle wher a turbo usualy wont make good boost untill about 2500 or so depending on the size of the turbo and a ton of other factors ..... The big problem with a SC 4 cyl. is than you usualy have to run less boost with a SC than a turbo because the 4 cyl. will blow up when to much boost is added at low RPM'S , where the turbo doesnt make much boost at the low RPM's so that isnt a problem .........
