Question
Want to enquire on supercharger. How do I determine the right size for the driven pulley. How and where do I fit the boost pressure meter and how do I work out the volumetric effect in relation to the boost pressure? Many thanks.

Answer
I suggest you speak with the tech dept of the supercharger manufacturer you intend to use. Each unit and application has its own specs for drive ratios and how to install accessories. Most companies will have a chart or calculator to determine ve vs boost.
