Supercharge Your Cessna 180/182
I would venture a guess that there aren't many 230 HP C-182's that will climb 100 MPH at 1400 FPM and 6,000 Palt w/700# aboard. Wow! I won't have to worry about climbing above the mountains now. Faster too!
. . . and by the way....I completely agree that you did produce one tough and reliable supercharger!
Forced Aeromotive Technologies is currently producing belt-driven supercharger systems for piston powered aircraft. Patented, STC'd systems, for Cessna 182's through the R models with the O-470-L, -R, -S, -U, Pponk, 520, and 550 conversions are now available.
Our systems produce sea level take-off power to approximately 7000 feet, and cruise climb power to 12,000 feet. Our test aircraft indicates 17 Kts. greater IAS at 12,000' in the supercharged configuration. Take off power is 28" of manifold pressure.
The supercharger is belt driven off the accessory drive, similar to the alternator. The supercharger is self lubricating and is not connected to the engine oil system in any way. It will run much cooler than a turbocharger and should result in much lower maintenance costs. It will add 5-7000 feet of altitude performance to a Cessna 182. Our system was tested in excess of FL200. Impeller speed is a function of engine RPM and therefore over speed and bootstrapping are not considerations. There are no MP fluctuations while adjusting the throttle, or mixture. Idle cool down periods are not necessary.
- Efficient - uses approximately 4.0 horse power at cruise
- Light weight - 30.5 to 31.5 pounds
- Cool engine temperatures
- Easy pilot workload - no bootstrapping or overshoot.
- No TIT to monitor
- No pre-shut down cool down required.
- Easy installation - no modifications to exhaust system, carburetor or intake system.
- No engine-oil driven control systems
- No scavenge pump
- No waste gate
- Self oiling and runs much cooler than the engine.
