Tell me about superchargers
I recently bought a 96 SSEi and this is the first car I have owned with a */c. I work on an ambulance with a turbo diesel and have some understanding of turbos, and I thought that the only difference in the two was that the */c is belt driven off the motor, and the turbo is air driven off the exhaust. But I am finding that my boost gauge shows negative to no pressure when I am driving casually and only goes to positive pressure when I get on the gas hard. Also why does the boost "step up" as the tranny up shifts and actually drops RPM'*. I am used to a turbo where you have more boost with higher revs, and it drops boost as you up shift.
