    Supercharger differences

    Hey everyone, I have a quick question, I am looking at buying a used supercharger off ebay for a little side project. I was looking at the red 185 hp and the black 215hp superchargers that come on the 2004-2006 4 tec's ect... My question is what is the difference between the two superchargers besides the color? Any help would be appreciated, thanks

    Jay

    Pretty sure its just the gear on the end. I think the 185 and 215 have the same wheel and housings. Either way, you should rebuild any charger you buy second hand. Not worth the $300 finding out they lied when it lets go.

    Thanks Lilman! yeah thats good advice. They look the same, But I just wanted to be sure before I made the purchase.

    you will need to use the gear that fits your motors flywheel
    and if it is a 155 there is no flywheel to drive the SC

    Just note foe ya....
    The difference is the amount of teeth, the 185 spins slower.
    What kind of seadoo do you have?

    You guys are one step ahead of me But yes thats my next concern... The "gear" to run the supercharger... Let me start off by saying Iam thinking of taking a seadoo supercharger and puting in on my Skidoo 800 rotax two stroke, I think it will be a good match to the motor cc wise... Because I am unfamilar with the supercharged engine, Iam learning all this (so thanks for your patience) like you say, the supercharger runs off of the flywheel directly?? like teeth on teeth? no chain? ( flywheel directly on the supercharger gear)?

    Or are you saying there is another gear between the flywheel and the supercharger gear?

    sportsjunky the seadoo SC is not a good candidate for any other motor than the 1500
    it needs too many special parts to make it work
    the seadoo SC runs at 6 times the crank
    so at 8000 rpm the SC needs to spin 48000
    it will need a flywheel about the size of a electric starter gear on a 800
    I know it seems simple just to bolt it on
    but in reality it is not worth all the fab work

    dont reinvent the wheel
    put a small turbo on where the muffler is now and hang on
    you can find many used turbos
