Something new...

I have completed the installation of a Sprintex 5s-210 supercharger on my zetec. 210 liters/second .94 liters/revolution (57 cubic inches). This will lower intake temperatures and allow for more boost.

This is replacing the Jackson Racing M45 eaton unit. A couple bits and pieces to sort out then off to the tuner.


If the photo doesn't load try this:

The Sprintex SC is a positive displacement supercharger (twin screw) similar to the Kenne Bell type. I adapted it to the Jackson Racing manifold already in place (although, the JRSC manifold is less than optimal).

BTW this is in my 1959 Austin Healey Sprite, it is a rear wheel drive setup, using a Mustanf 5 speed and Mazda Rx7 Rear End.

The picture is kind of a memorial to the cat, he passed away a few months ago at the age of 18, but he loved cars...

The sprintex is suppose to be good for 300hp, but, that doesn't include the restrictions in the JRSC manifold. One of the big advantages over the roots type s/c is the boost comes in at very low rpm, should be able to have 14psi at 1800rpm.

Tom, you're right about how close the belts are, but, i'm using the JRSC pulley set-up. If they contact I'll be able to tell when it launches through the fiberglass hood...

That's the normal JRSC belt set up, i don't think he should have a problem. We have plenty of people on here running JRSC with no problems with belts touching




But is the twin screw SC making more power though?

I am curious as to how difficult it was to mount the Sprintex SC on that JRSC manifold? Was there a lot of modification required?
