Mini Cooper Supercharger is a compressor for pre-compressed air or a mixture of air with fuel entering the cylinders of internal combustion engines. As a result of the higher total caloric content coming into the cylinders of fuel-air mixture, supercharger kits increase engine power. Such car turbo system was first installed on the car by the German engineer Gottlieb Daimler in 1885. In 1902, Louis Renault patented his design of Mini Cooper supercharger.
First Mini appeared on Aug. 26, 1959. Its designer, Sir Alec Issigonis even could not imagine what impact his little car will have in the world culture, society and, of course, cars. Mini was designed simply as an affordable small car, having seats for 4 adults and safe for travel. Now the car is available in three basic models: Mini Cooper (Cooper One, Cooper S), Convertible, Mini Clubman.
There are two types of superchargers kits for the Mini: mechanical supercharger (driven by the crankshaft or other means) and Turbos (driven by the exhaust system). The latter, though, and have common roots and purpose, still a fairly isolated branch of car turbo systems. This type of Mini Cooper superchargers include: centrifugal supercharger, screw compressors or superchargers of volumetric type, gate or lobed superchargers, etc.
Many believe that the use of turbo kits for cars can adversely affect on the life of the engine. It can be different, throughout the measure is needed. Start with the fact that usually speed increase cause damage to the engine. Consequently, the use of a supercharger, boosting torque at low and medium speeds, cans, conversely, positive impact on the life of the engine. On the other hand, if you make really big increase in power, many regular items should be replaced by more durable when using a Mini Cooper supercharger.
