i'm looking to supercharge a b18c5 motor instead of turbo because its suppose to be more reliable...what components would i need to run stock boost?? do i need bigger fuel pump, injectors, fuel pressure regulator, boost retard??

no, it only comes with a regulator. You can retard the timing on the engine, or you can buy a map controller and run stock timing. No fuel pump is included.

Type R's do not see much gains with the Jackson Supercharger......
and the jackson runs 5.5 psi on a type R.....

my friend who had the kit that i now have on my car ran a 14.02........which is only a .7-.9 seconds faster than a stock type R


but yeah they are alot more simple than turbo's.....

.7-.9s is a lot of improvement!!!

well considering with the exact same set up i took 1.8 seconds off my quarter mile, and ran only .7 seconds slower than a type r with the same set up seems a little unimpressive....


and im sure the boost does help a lot better with road racing....
i was just refering to Time slips at the drag strip...

SO you're saying you have a type R with a SC but ran faster then your friend or what? You're confusing. AT first you said that 'Type R's do not see much gains with the Jackson Supercharger......
and the jackson runs 5.5 psi on a type R.....'

Now you're saying that you took 1.8s off your quarter mile in SC type R? All I'm saying is even though its .7 that is still a lot although it could have been better. Drag time depends alot on the driver and traction.

13.1 and 223 WHP is weak. A JRSC on a GSR with a standalone at 8 PSI can hit close to 223, but it's times will be better because it's all about the area under the curve, the torque curve that is. There is an SI at 5800 feet with the vortech hitting 15's and 16s consistent, partially because he can't drive worth shit, partially because the vortech kit sucks on small displacement motors. 10 PSI JRSC'd SIs were hitting 14.7 up here untuned!

#1) Unless you're running really high boost with the Vortech, it's a no-no on a small motor. Period.

#2) I wouldn't boost the ITR. The internal components are lightweight and don't do well under that kind of stress. If you've got an ITR, go all motor. You can boost it any way you like, but I advise against it.

Where did you get this info from?

As far as I know, no forced induction stop the second set of valves opening.

"The problem with the VTEC is that the intake event is too long, and the exhaust isn't really the problem. As for optimizing cam shafts for the VTEC engines, some day we will, but we're going in so many directions now, there's no time. The other thing that you must understand is that with the blower, you already have too much torque at low rpm, and it's almost impossible to stay off the rev limiter in the first three gears because the engine accelerates so quickly "under pressure". Once you ride in one or better yet drive one, I really don't think you'll be thinking about the VTEC for a while. Pressure is a wonderful thing."

energy dynamics.......maybe its just on their supercharger

hmmm.... i dont know about all that...like i said my good friend has the vortech and the motor still doesnt seem to make much power till the vtec kicks in....and ive drivin it many of times

heres pics of his ride
