SDG Motorsports is well-known for its expertise in supercharger components and upgrades for high-performance vehicles, including the Hellcat, Demon, Trackhawk, and Redeye platforms. One of the most common performance-enhancing services offered by SDG Motorsports is supercharger porting. In this blog post, we will discuss the process of porting a blower, its benefits, and how it can help you achieve even greater horsepower with your supercharged vehicle.
What Does Porting a Blower Do?
Supercharger porting is the process of modifying the internal surfaces of a supercharger, specifically the inlet and outlet ports, to improve airflow.
Porting involves carefully reshaping the ports and removing any restrictions or imperfections to create a smoother path for the air to flow through the supercharger.
The goal of porting a blower is to increase its efficiency and overall performance.
What are the Benefits of Porting a Supercharger?
Increased Horsepower: Porting a supercharger can result in a significant increase in horsepower by improving airflow and allowing the engine to generate more power.
Enhanced Efficiency: A ported supercharger operates more efficiently, which can lead to better fuel economy and reduced stress on the engine.
Improved Throttle Response: With improved airflow, a ported supercharger can provide quicker and more responsive throttle action.
Cooler Air Intake: Porting can also help lower the temperature of the air being drawn into the engine, which can contribute to increased power output.
How Much HP Does a Hellcat Supercharger Add?
The stock Hellcat supercharger is designed to add a significant amount of horsepower to the vehicle, typically boosting output by more than 200 HP.
With professional porting and other upgrades offered by SDG Motorsports, such as the Hellephant Killer Snout and X-treme Billet Bearing Plate, even greater horsepower gains can be achieved.
What Does It Mean to Get a Supercharger Ported?
Getting a supercharger ported means having the internal surfaces of the supercharger professionally modified to improve airflow and overall performance.
Porting is typically performed by experts like SDG Motorsports, who have the necessary knowledge, tools, and experience to optimize the supercharger without compromising its reliability or durability.
Porting a supercharger is an effective way to unleash your vehicle's full potential, and SDG Motorsports is your go-to expert for this performance-enhancing service. By improving airflow and increasing horsepower, a ported supercharger can transform your Hellcat, Demon, Trackhawk, or Redeye vehicle into an even more formidable machine.
