Adjustable boost on supercharger?

hi, i was just curious if it is possible to have an adjustable boost setup on a supercharged engine? & if so how is it achieved?
Thanks.

Re: Adjustable boost on supercharger?

the capa kits are set at 9psi

to adjust this all you would need to do is put a smaller pulley on the front of it - which would make the blower spin faster - therefore more boost

yes it is possible ,but the arrangment would look ugly using and variable speed drive belt assembly as used in industry.would have to be mechanically operated.

Re: Adjustable boost on supercharger?

The other way is to stick on a really small pulley to spin the absolute shite out of it then set up a controller of some type to pulse width modulate a valve/vent to vent off the excess pressure. This works well on centrifigal blowers to get more low down boost.
