FAQ's about the AEV Supercharger
How is a supercharger different from a turbocharger?
Superchargers are mechanically driven air pumps that are connected directly to the engine crankshaft via the serpentine belt. A turbocharger is driven by the flow of exhaust gas which is generated as part of the engine combustion cycle.
Why choose supercharging over turbocharging?
Because turbochargers depend on the energy in the exhaust gas stream to spool up and generate boost pressure, there is often a delay in the response of the engine at lower engine speeds where exhaust energy is lower. This delay is often referred to as “Turbo Lag”. On the other hand, a supercharger is directly driven by the crankshaft of the engine, and there is no delay in engine response at lower engine speeds. This allows supercharged engines to have instant throttle response and better vehicle drivability.
How is the AEV Supercharger Kit different than some of the other kits on the market?
The big advantage of the AEV Supercharger Kit is the supercharger unit that we use. This hybrid-roots supercharger is manufactured by Eaton, who is the preferred supercharger supplier for many OE manufacturers such as Audi, Ford, GM, Mercedes-Benz, Jaguar and Nissan. Eaton superchargers are completely self-contained, making them extremely reliable and virtually maintenance free. The hybrid-roots design of the Eaton TVS supercharger delivers power lower in the rpm-range and in a more linear fashion when compared to a centrifugal supercharger, making it the ideal choice for any daily driven Jeep.
Are superchargers noisy?
The AEV Supercharger Kit incorporates an Eaton TVS Supercharger with a specially designed bypass valve, which is actuated by a vacuum motor near the throttle body, and re-circulates the supercharger air flow when boost is not required. During typical driving conditions, the engine is under boost around 5% of the time, which means the remaining 95% of the time the engine is under vacuum, allowing for better fuel economy and a quieter ride. In addition, the helix angled rotors, along with specially designed inlet and outlet port geometry, also reduce pressure variations resulting in a smooth discharge flow and a lower level of noise during operation. The associated ducting and mounting used in installing the supercharger can play a major role in reducing the noise emitted by the supercharger.
What modifications are necessary to install the AEV Supercharger Kit?
The AEV Supercharger Kit is designed to be installed on a 100% stock drivetrain. However, we do recommend a general mechanical inspection and tune-up prior to installing the AEV Supercharger Kit.
How much power will I gain with the AEV Supercharger Kit?
The AEV Supercharger Kit will provide a 40% increase in horsepower and a 35% increase in torque. These numbers may vary slightly depending on the vehicle’s tire size, gear ratio, etc.
Is the AEV Supercharger Kit compatible with the AEV Snorkel Kit and AEV Heat Reduction Hood?
Yes, the AEV Supercharger Kit is compatible with the AEV Heat Reduction Hood and the AEV Snorkel Kit.
How will the AEV Supercharger Kit affect daily drivability?
AEV Supercharger Kit is ideal for the daily driven vehicle. The additional power that the AEV Supercharger Kit provides is available on demand, throughout the entire rpm range. Under cruising conditions, the compressed air from the supercharger is bypassed, and is recirculated in the supercharger, improving fuel efficiency. Under acceleration, the bypass is closed, and the “boosted” air is sent into the engine to provide increased throttle response and power.
What is the warranty on the AEV Supercharger Kit?
The AEV Supercharger Kit has a 3 year/36,000 mile warranty on parts.
Will a supercharger void my factory warranty?
This is best discussed with the service manager or service writer at the dealership where you purchased your vehicle. The Magnuson Moss Warranty Act states that the dealership cannot void the warranty on a vehicle due to an aftermarket part unless they can prove that the aftermarket part caused or contributed to failure in the vehicle. With that being said, adding a supercharger will most likely result in greater scrutiny, should a drivetrain issue arise. For best results, try working with performance oriented dealerships. For additional piece of mind, an optional is available. This warranty offers up to 60 months/100,000 miles of additional powertrain coverage.
What type of additional maintenance is required with a supercharger?
A big advantage of the AEV Supercharger kit is the lack of any scheduled maintenance. The only item to keep an eye on is the drive belt. Just as any drive belt, if it shows any signs of wear, immediately replace it. The drive gear oil, however, has a service life of 100,000 miles.
What octane gas will I need to use with the AEV Supercharger Kit?
Minimum of 91 octane fuel is required. Octane booster is not sufficient. We strongly recommend that an entire tank of 91 octane fuel is run through the vehicle prior to installing the supercharger system.
Is the AEV Supercharger Kit street legal?
Yes, the AEV Supercharger Kit is CARB approved and 50-state legal.
How complex is the installation?
The AEV Supercharger Kit is a 100% completely bolt-on system that utilizes all factory “push-lock” connectors. The average installation time is 8-10 hours.
Where is the AEV Supercharger Kit manufactured?
The AEV Supercharger Kit is proudly manufactured and assembled in the USA.
The AEV-Conversions Pro-Cal module is a must-have tool for anyone who owns a Jeep JK. This little Rockstar is a super-simple way to make a ton of changes that can't be done at the dealership or with any other re-programmer!
Things like correcting the speedometer and gear ratio after bigger tires are installd. Without correcting the speedometer, there is a big loss in the performance of the stability control (ESP), transmission shifting and your engine's performance.
Best of all it the AEV Conversions ProCal unit will do more than just correct the speedo. Your TPMS (tire pressure monitoring system) can be recalibrated to suit off road tires without setting off that annoying little dashboard warning light. You can even activate daytime running lights, make your turn signals "one-touch", enable a temporary increase in the idle speed of your engine (great for winching), clear engine trouble codes and even get the best ESP performance with a feature that helps your alignment techs get your Jeep perfectly aligned!
The Pro Cal Module is built with super simple DIP switches. Just read the quick reference guide that comes with the AEV ProCal module and you can flip a switch to make it do what you want. When the set the DIP switches, just plug the unit into the OBD port under the dashboard. The whole process takes just a few minutes and you can take all the settings back to stock just as fast!
