Supercharged Camira..

Craig and Adam\’s attempt at adding an SC12 to a JE Camira wagon

Happy New Year

Posted by superchargedcamira on January 14, 2008

Happy new year to those people who have been following this website over the last couple years. We’re getting there slowly.

Not an aweful lot has happened on the project over the xmas/ny break, other than the addition of the final tensioner on the supercharger bracket and the new supercharger inlet flange. Unfortunately the inlet flange has warped slightly from the heat of welding during the modifications, so some further work may be necessary to repair it.

I have taken a series of new photos showing the updated supercharger bracket, the whole thing mounted on the camira including the new inlet flange. For the first time in this sites history we now also have a video to demonstrate the unique sound that the supercharger generates.

Supercharger Video: When the button is pressed for the first time and the engine is revved, the whine that can be heard is the supercharger. When the button is pressed a second time to disengage the SC, that is just the original engine sound.
