Question Supercharger Lag Question.

My super charger takes a 2-3 seconds after I push the gas pedal all the way down to spool up. Is that normal?

Your S/C is controlled through the ECU and kicks in at around 2,000 rpm if there is no load on the engine and much lower if there is load - such as when you accelerate after a stop. I would say that the S/C in my 230 (manual transmission) is up in speed almost instantaneously.

How do you notice that yours is taking 2-3 secs to spool up? Are you driving a manual or auto?

I'm driving a automatic, and I didn't remember it taking a few seconds before to kick in so I timed it.

I had a person at autozone scan my computer. I got the error P0455. Could that cause the problem?

Is there any easy way to find out where the leak is coming from?
