Blower / supercharger

I searshed the forum for threads about superchargers, but I didnt find what Im looking for.

I bought an old blower this weekend, is it any idea to try to mount it on my 6.2 or is it a waste of time? would look nice on my truck


I mostly do offroading and as I understands it a supercharger givs power at low rpm, that would be nice.

My baby

It will take some work to mount that blower. Superchargers have been installed in 6.2/6.5 diesels, usually other models than the one you have. They give good low end torque. They also rob power. They are operated off the front belt of the engine, so use engine power to operate. In contrast the turbo is spun by exhaust gasses, an almost free application. A number of H1 Hummers owners have supercharged their 6.2's. there are some web sites out there describing their conversions. There are turbos kits available for the 6.2/6.5 so few have gone the supercharger route.

As Craig M stated - there is a gain and a loss from using a gear or belt driven supercharger. Technically, a turbocharger IS a supercharger - just happens to be gas driven instead of mechanically. A turbocharger is the most efficient of the superchargers - in regard to how much power it robs as compared to how much it makes.
But - none of this matters much if all you care about is low-end boost.

Well, it will be some work to mount the blower on the motor
, but what do I need to do more, diesel pump etc.

I'm thinking about making a new intake manifold to fit the blower, have anybody done that? I think Ill do it in stainless steel.

Have anybody done headers for a 6.2?

Frankly, I think that if you could figure out how to mount it it would be a very cool setup. It will give you all the low end boost you want and no turbo lag...

The problem is... How do you mount it?

I can tell you this... If I had a supercharger, it would most certainly be going on my truck... One way or another...

Extra fuel pump is already mounted up for you in the pic. Be heck servicing the injection pump.

Here's a marine supercharger. http://www.marinedieselusa.com/marin...e-inboard.html

roots...

Did you get this off a 6-53? it certainly looks like a roots style blower off a gm 2-stroke...if it is it will take rather a lot of h/p to turn,and generate lots of heat.this type dosn't compress air on it's own...it just pushes it.by pushing air into the manifold it sorta generates boost out side itself by sheer force and volume...very inneficient.

the marine diesel in the link uses a lysholm...slang term Twin-Screw.this one compresses air in the case,and generates a-lot less heat doing it.also uses far less power to turn.iirc it can use as little as 10 h/p at cruise while generating 5.psi boost.much more effective.

definitely a cool idea and a doable project,with some work and thought/planning.it's gonna take a serious set of pullys to drive that monster...

It looks like a blower off a 2 stroke I-4 detroit diesel.
Those I-4 detroit diesels were only rated for like 170hp.
The V-6 53 serries blower is a lot bigger. It looks more like some thing that should be on a top fuel dragster.
