Supercharger systems and installation is only available through G3i.

All systems are custom to application**

MSL power @ higher altitudes.

Don’t settle for less manifold pressure
 

Aircraft Supercharger KitSupercharger Alternator Drive

 

The G3i Forced Induction Aircraft Supercharger, are designed to mount to a stock Lycoming vertical draft sump. The Supercharger system is driven from the flywheel, through the alternator by a 6 rib multi-belt, also known as a serpentine belt. This provides multiple choices of drive ratios for different end user manifold pressure requirements. All superchargers utilize a rear air intake inlet. Fuel delivery options are fuel injection pre or post compressor and carbureted pre-compressor. To maintain original fuel nozzle positions, post supercharger will require upper deck reference supply signal system, which we can supply. Installation component design and fabrication is done in-house at G3i. G3i supercharger components can be customized to fit different type of aircraft applications from high HP demands to high altitude cruise performance.

About the Supercharger:

The compressor is mechanical, belt driven systems that utilizes EATON’s latest 6th Generation (TVS) supercharger rotor technology. The Twin Vortices Series (TVS) Superchargers feature a pair of four-lobe, high-helix rotors with 160-degrees of overall twist that are housed in a high-flow housing. This highly efficient package requires less power to drive, and delivers cooler discharge temperatures not requiring the use of intercoolers. To maximize efficiency during cruise power settings is obtained by the supercharger’s integrated bypass valve that is vacuum and also vernier controlled. This vacuum operated system allows air to bypass the supercharger and the rotors to “free-spin" under lower MP requirements. During this situation the parasitic loss of the supercharger system is essentially negated taking less than one-third of a horsepower to turn the rotors. This bypass valve also being vernier controlled allows to set up for target MP at different altitudes.

g3i supercharger mounting IO-360burkut conard supercharge

 

This application is going into a Berkut pusher.

The supercharger belt drive system utilizes two 6-rib belts. One drives the alternator from the flywheel and the other drives the supercharger from the back of the alternator through shaft. This allows during set-up, multiple choices of drive ratios for different end user manifold pressure requirements.

 

supercharger.0788 lycoming 540 0791

 

Custom, Lysholm supercharger set-up on a Lycoming IO-540. Self-contained oil system with reverse anti-back lash helical cut idler gears. Single multi-rib belt drive. This engine on the dyno @ 2650rpm, was putting out over 330hp/ 657ft-lbs torq. (Uncorrected horse power) at 8200ft density altitude.

 

 

(Note)**

1) Supercharger mounting plates are individually machine fitted for each engine application.

2) G3i  requires the engine for proper installation, or mechanical drawings for bolt/stud mounting coordinates.

3) All engine set-ups can be dynometer tuned prior to delivery.
