Ah.  Forced induction.  I don’t know how much background you want/need, but I’ll give you some.  (Click on the pictures to make them bigger and easier to understand.)

A naturally aspirated engine (no super/turbo charger) draws air into the cylinders by the vacuum created when the piston is on its intake stroke - and just by normal atmospheric pressure.  Which is great.  Lots of cars are naturally aspirated, and you can still get a ton of power out of an NA motor.  But using a supercharger or turbocharger changes the whole game.

There are a couple different types of superchargers.  Positive displacement superchargers (Roots, and twin-screw styles) and centrifugal superchargers.  The positive displacement type of supercharger sits directly on top of the motor.  Air is brought in through the “top” of the supercharger, is compressed by the rotors/screws of the supercharger, and then FORCED into the cylinders, cramming more air into the cylinder than is possible with just atmospheric pressure.  (Compressing the air makes it hotter and most people run some sort of an intercooler system to try and cool the compressed air before it actually goes into the engine - cooler air is more dense, and the more air you can cram into the cylinder, the more power you can potentially make).

The drawback to superchargers is that they are driven off of the crankshaft, which uses some power to create the extra power.  In ^ that picture of a positive displacement supercharger, you see the pulley that the belt runs on.  However, one of the positives of a supercharger is that you have almost instant power.  There is no “lag.”  You step on the gas, and boom!, you feel it.  Newer superchargers have a bypass so that when you don’t need boost (when you’re just cruising down the road) you are more fuel-efficient.  The more air you shove into those cylinders, the more gas you have to put in with it.

Centrifugal superchargers look more like a turbocharger, but again, they are belt driven, so it’s almost instant power.

image

This ^ is a Procharger (that’s the brand) supercharger.  Looks like a turbo setup, but obviously belt driven.  After reading the turbo description below, you can get an idea of how this operates.  Instead of being powered by the exhaust, it’s run off a belt - sometimes the main drive belt, other times its own dedicated belt.

AND… just for fun I’ll describe turbochargers, too.

Turbochargers don’t really have a downside, besides maybe finding space for everything.  They can have turbo lag, which is the time it takes for the exhaust gases to spool up the turbine, but that can vary depending on the size of the motor, size of the turbo(s), and whether or not the vanes of the turbo are variable.  Sometimes a smaller turbo is “stacked” in “front” of a bigger turbo, so the small turbo spools faster, which then helps spool the larger turbo.  Most people will do everything they can to eliminate turbo lag, because, well, to me at least, it’s annoying as hell.  My family’s Passat has horrendous turbo lag.  You step on the gas… and wait… and wait… and then suddenly the boost kicks in.  My Subaru on the other hand, is not nearly as bad.  It still has some turbo lag, but not much.  

Turbochargers use exhaust gases to spin.  The wheel on the exhaust side is spun by the exhaust gases flowing over it.  There is a shaft that connects the exhaust side to the intake side.  The blades on the intake side compress the fresh (outside) air, and then this compressed air is forced into your engine - again, typically through an intercooler setup.

Hopefully this helped explain forced induction to you a bit more!  If you’ve got more questions, feel free to ask and I’ll try to explain them as best as I can!

Bringing this back because I can

Holy. Fucking. SHIT.

Sabrina Reid just put me on to a police dash cam video from South Carolina regarding an incident that occurred between Levar Jones and a state trooper on September 4, 2014.

The video shows a state trooper pulling up to a gas station as Jones gets out of his car.

The trooper yells for Jones to produce his license.

Jones bends into his car to get his license and the trooper opens fire and strikes the man.

Jones, in shock, backs away from the car WITH HIS HANDS IN THE AIR.

In a stunning act of inhumanity, THE TROOPER CONTINUES TO FIRE UPON JONES—WHO CLEARLY HAS HIS HANDS UP.

Jones falls to the ground and the fucking trooper yells “Get on the ground!”

The wounded Jones, already on the fucking ground, says to the trooper, “I was getting my license. You said ‘get [my] license.”

The trooper continues to treat Jones as though he were guilty of some heinous crime, talking to him as though he had already been tried, convicted, and sentenced.

He walks over to Jones and tells him to put his hands behind his back.

Jones asks, “What did I do??”

The trooper ignores him and continues to tell him to put his hands behind his back.

“Are you hit?” the trooper asks.

“I think so,” the confused Jones says. “I can’t feel my legs.”

“Why did you shoot me?” Jones asks.

“Well, you dove head first back into your car.”

NO HE DIDN’T. HE FOLLOWED YOUR ORDERS TO RETRIEVE HIS LICENSE.

“I was telling you to get out of your car,” the trooper said.

Yes, but he SHOT Jones at CLOSE RANGE even before Jones had the chance to COMPLY with the BRAND NEW ORDER the trooper gave to get out of the car. He literally FIRED ON JONES WHILE HE WAS TELLING HIM TO GET OUT OF THE CAR.

And why? Because the man unbuckled his seat belt before coming to a full stop in the gas station.

Yes, y’all.

This was all over a seat belt.

….

Look, I’m fucking tired.

I’m tired of marching.

I’m tired of praying.

I’m tired of talking.

I’m tired of singing spirituals.

I’m tired.

If Stuntmen from the old movies don’t have your full respect then I just don’t know what to say to you

l tried really hard not to reblog this

Yeah, it is indeed really hard not to reblog a fucking thing.

Can we all agree that the man in the first gif is the manliest man in the world?

Are we just going to all silently acknowledge that the last guy is clearly dead and that we just saw him die. 

HOLD UP FOR A SECOND

ALL OF THESE GIFS ARE ONE MAN

THE SINGULAR BUSTER KEATON

WHILE FILMING THE GENERAL

HE SNAPPED HIS NECK ON THE RAILROAD TIES AND WENT HOME AND ICED HIS BODY

AND CAME BACK FOR WORK THE NEXT DAY

HE ONCE GOT HIS HIP RIPPED OUT OF ITS SOCKET BY A MALFUNCTIONING ELEVATOR AND WAS DISAPPOINTED WITH HIMSELF FOR BEING INJURED

HE ONCE HAD TO FALL 100 FEET DOWN A WATERFALL INTO A NET

A STUNTMAN TESTED IT AND BROKE BOTH LEGS AND DISLOCATED HIS SHOULDER

BUSTER DID THE STUNT ANYWAY AND LANDED WITHOUT A SCRATCH

IN ‘THE HIGH DIVE’

BUSTER DID A TRICK DIVE THROUGH A CARDBOARD DECK THAT WAS CAMOUFLAGED TO LOOK LIKE THE REAL DECK

ONLY HE COULDN’T TELL FROM 100 FEET UP WHERE THE CARDBOARD STOPPED AND THE REAL DECK STARTED AND THERE WAS ONLY LIKE A THREE FOOT MARGIN FOR ERROR

AND WHEN HE HESITATED A SUDDEN BREEZE LITERALLY KNOCKED HIM OFF THE DIVING BOARD AND HE HAD TO JUMP ANYWAY

AND HE MISSED THE REAL DECK BY LESS THAN A FOOT BUT HE MADE IT

IN THE SECOND GIF HE’S RECREATING SOMETHING THAT THE ACTUAL GENERAL PURSUERS HAD TO DO IN THE CIVIL WAR

IF HE MISSES THAT TIE

THE TRAIN WILL BE DERAILED AND HE WILL DIE IN THE EXPLOSION

IN THE THIRD GIF AN ENTIRE HOUSE IS FALLING HE HAS ONE TAKE AND IF HE HAS NOT DONE THE CALCULATIONS CORRECTLY HE WILL BE CRUSHED

HE HAS AN INCH-WIDE MARGIN ON EACH SIDE

AND THE HOUSE LITERALLY BRUSHES HIS LEFT SHOULDER ON THE WAY DOWN

YOU CAN SEE HIS LEFT ARM JUMP BECAUSE HE’S FLINCHING FROM THE PAIN

THAT LAST GIF

HE WAS SUPPOSED TO MAKE THAT JUMP

HE WAS NOT SUPPOSED TO FALL AND THEY HADNT PLANNED FOR IT

BUT HE SURVIVED

BUSTER KEATON SURVIVED 100% OF THINGS THAT WOULD HAVE KILLED LESSER MEN INCLUDING WWI, TORNADOS, HOUSEFIRES, ALCOHOLISM, BROKEN NETS, CRUSHING DEPRESSION, THE DEPRESSION ITSELF, THE MCCARTHY WITCHHUNTS, THE END OF SILENT CINEMA, AND ABOUT 900 MORE OF THE STUNTS YOU SEE ABOVE

BUSTER LIVED TO BE 70 YEARS OLD

FATHERED LIKE FOUR KIDS AND EIGHT GRANDKIDS

HE CAME OUT THE OTHER SIDE OF ALL THAT

THINKING THAT LIFE WAS GOOD AND PEOPLE WERE WONDERFUL

BUSTER KEATON IS NOT JUST A STUNTMAN

HE IS A GODDAMN SAINT

BUSTER KEATON’S PARENTS WERE PART OF A TRAVELING SHOW.

THEY WERE ACROBATS.

THEY TOOK BABY BUSTER UP HIGH IN THE AIR WITH THEM.

THEY DROPPED HIM.

LUCKILY SOMEONE WHO WAS STANDING UNDER THEM CAUGHT BABY BUSTER.

THAT MAN WAS HARRY HOUDINI. 

HARRY HOUDINI SAVED BUSTER KEATON’S LIFE.

if you don’t think that’s the coolest shit you can get right out.
