Default increase boost w/ a supercharger?

is it possible to increase boost w/ a supercharger like you can with a turbocharger? i know they're not the same applications as far as forced induction but i'm new to this..

Sure, you just change pulleys on the supercharger. A smaller pulley will make the vanes turn faster, and you will get a higher boost pressure.Just make sure the engine can handle it!

yes!my friend just boosted his supercharged MINI Cooper S.if you wanna boost a Supercharger, you gotta make it spin faster and it squashes that air in faster.if you wanna spin it faster, you gotta install a smaller pulley.(just like a bicycle backwheel has big gears for slow speed and small gears for fast speed)The supercharger is running because it's attached to a rubber belt. The rubber belt is turning the supercharger because the belt is attached to a pulley just like alternator, water pump, power steering pump, and a/c compressor.

Yes, as mentioned, it's possible to change the size of the pulleys, thereby increasing the RPM & accompanying manifold boost. HOWEVER, be careful! Superchargers use sealed bearings because they turn as much lower speeds that turbochargers. Altering the speed of the supercharger may overheat the bearings. Also, overdriving the supercharger may result in detonation (i.e., pre-ignition) of the fuel mixture. Many modern engines are equipped 'anti knock' sensors that retard the ignition to avoid detonation. If that condition results from continuous excessive intake manifold pressure, you could cause fouling of your plugs & excessive carbon buildup. Forced indution setups need to be thought out in advance...best to buy a kit that's been well engineered, then use it as it was designed w/o 'one off' mods.
