A supercharger with a low-boost fix and how it was almost never made. Published in the July issue of Power and Performance News In their delivery of instantaneous power, superchargers flourish when compared to turbochargers. They suffer no turbo lag.

Changing pistons with buttons not only reduces the time taken to replace pistons at the race track, but it also ends the frustration of fiddling about with round wire locks or double spiral versions. “Some years ago, when we were developing the original concept,” says Gibtec Piston’s Robbie Giebas, “the button seemed to offer a further advantage…Read the full story courtesy of Drag Racer...
