Sprintex Twin Screw Superchargers
Twin screw superchargers contain a male and a female rotor which mesh and form helical ‘packet’ volumes. The twin screw supercharger is also a positive displacement device however the different shaped rotors mesh very closely meaning that there is minimal internal leakage. This makes it very efficient from a very low speed right up to the supercharger’s limiting speed, no other supercharger has such a broad efficiency window. As the supercharger rotates, it compresses the air inside the supercharger before then releasing it to the intake manifold. This internal pressure ratio can be changed to suit certain applications making the twin screw very efficient in its designed application. It also makes the twin screw compressor capable of very high boost pressures if needed. The Like roots superchargers, twin screws are also typically installed in or on the intake manifold making it a compact and neat install.
Before you begin your installation—read the instructions! This means read all of them.Explanations of all of the features are included in the system and available for download before you even purchase. There are further tips and advice in the instruction manual of your chosen Sprintex Supercharger system.
Make sure your work area is clean and uncluttered.
Make sure all necessary tools are available at the time of installation (no specialist tools are required for you to fit your Sprintex system). Sprintex recommends that you run at least one fuel tank full of premium grade fuel through you system prior to doing a system install. The use of mid or lowgrade fuel after installation of the supercharger can impact the performance of your engine creating detonation and pre-ignition problems.
Make sure you’ve got a healthy battery! If your battery is old and worn, replace it. Calibration devices require a full charge and stable voltage for a successful installation of the tune. If in doubt connect a battery charger while programming the vehicle.
Should your vehicle be requiring or close to requiring a routine scheduled service we would recommend this be undertaken including the installation of new spark plugs prior to commencing installation.
Change your fluids if you have been putting it off. If something is wrong with your driveline, it is better to find out beforehand by analyzing fluids and checking any magnetic drain plugs for shavings.
Do not remove the protective tape from the supercharger including the intake manifold, inlet and discharge ports until you are ready to attach to your vehicle. It is important no debris falls into the superchargers during installation. Pay special attention to the seals and sealing surface of the components. If damage occurs this can cause air leaks between components. Small vacuum leaks can be hard to diagnose and cost time.
Sprintex superchargers run a self-contained oil set up. OIL LEVELS ARE SYSTEM SPECIFIC. Special attention must be made in order to fill and maintain correct levels. The correct oil level required for each system can be found within the installation manual. WARNING. Incorrect oil levels can cause permanent damage. Please also ensure the use of the correct grade of oil. Sprintex recommends Redline 75W90NS. Prior to starting the vehicle after installation double check fuel, coolant and electrical connections.
When initially started allow the engine to warm up whilst checking for any leaks before driving and recheck oil and coolant levels. Take care and follow the instructions for a successful installation. Also, remember routine maintenance as you enjoy your Sprintex Supercharger over time, check supercharger oil level (do not overfill) as part of your vehicle servicing schedule.
