The concept that I had in mind for a bypass would assign an electrically clutched pully (Think AC compressor) to a small SC unit. Near enough to zero power usage while turned off, but when the power is applied, power is applied.
Now this raises questions of a clutched pully that is going to be durable enough to take the abuse of running a supercharger and then the matter of plumbing with bypass gates and all of that. Sadly enough, this is about the point where my research broke down. I ended up getting cars that wouldn't take kindly to fiorced induction or ones that it would be just plain silly on (A blown '73 Dodge 1-ton work van?) and the planning stages never really crossed from the theoretical into the practical.
So now I ask those much wiser than I in these matters, is this a viable plan? Can I have 'instant-on' power without resorting to nitrous? Would something along these lines work or would I have to experience the HP drain under 'off' running conditions?
Maybe this should go in the FI thread, but that seems more turbo oriented which is not what I'm looking to research. An additional question, assuming all the other stuff can be worked out, would be the choice of cam and valve sizes. What's it going to take to get 200 bhp out of the motor with the blower on? Can I get 100 with it off and 200 with it on?
Okay, I'll stop asking questions now.
