9780857330925: The Supercharging Story: The Exciting Century-long Saga of High-Pressure Engines in Road and Racing Cars from the Earliest Blowers to the Latest Turbos

Supercharging is the most exotic and exciting feature ever created to go under the hood of a car. The cost and complexity that made blowers so rare in their early heyday of the 1920s and 1930s were the limiting factors that made supercharging so dramatic and indeed desirable. It seemed abandoned until the turbocharger’s perfection brought back high-pressure boosting for both racing and road cars. Award-winning expert Karl Ludvigsen takes you behind the scenes of supercharging’s roller-coaster ride and the advanced technologies that find it in more and more 21st-century cars on both road and track.
