I have just found out about these superchargers, is there anybody out there that knows anything about them? I can´t complian about torque, but my non efi 3F lc80 would probably welcome a little more power.

go get a real blower from CAPA or the like
they are electric and as such are not positive displacement and only run at one speed...

the faster the engine goes the faster a blower needs to run...hence belt driven or in the case of turbo's exhaust driven

Brother, dont believe what you read about them.....the best way to get more power from your carbi 3f is to (all jokes asside) tie it to a rope and use it as a anchor..
sorry couldnt help it.....no ive owned one, and it wasnt too bad in the 80....the valve problems were addressed, etc, etc, sooooo if you dont already, do this...
Extracter exhausts (Genie) and descent muffler when it falls off.
Electronic ignition (Pirahna optical)
snorkel (cold air ram)

Dozer, I´ve got a CraneCams electronic ignition, so, sounds like extractors should be next. Where do you get them from?, any perfomance shop? How much do they normally ask for them?

You mention valve issues, what exactly are we talking about? Is it something to do with the design? My engine´s got 280000kms on the clock, still goes well, no smoke, is there anything I need to now about it?

Hi
Any descent exhaust shop will get you some extracters, id say 5-700 for them and maybe another 1 for a descent muffler....earlier 60 series 3f's used to burn valves, but the 80 seemed to be ok, with richer settings in the carbi.
Your 3f doesnt like forced induction as there is only 5 main bearings on the crank as opposed to 7 on a later model motor like the 1fz

From memory they were basic, didnt put a hell of a lot of strain on anythiung but only gave an extra 1-2lb boost. The idea was to overcome issues while suffering turbo lag.
The boost they put out is beneficial for small engines as no power is sapped from exhaust or cam as per your normal turbo or super. The downside was they have very low output, and will not make a significant difference on large capacity engines, or after you get into mid to high revs. There was a mention of them a year or so back in 4WD monthly

Hi David O,

Julian Edgar of Autospeed did quite some quite thorough testing and a review on these. I think the result is pretty much predictable...
