JRSC ITR Build Up - Chapter 1
This clip shows the progression of my JRSC supercharged B18c-R DC2 Honda from it's humble beginnings as a turquoise Vti-R to how it look today.
This movie has a bit of a sad ending. Bye bye B18c-R.
Thats ok though, chapter 2 shows the re-power with a JE/Eagle forged B18c and a bit more Boost + methanol :)

**** For all the haters of the rear bumper, this video is actually getting pretty old now, the holed bumper is long gone, now replaced by a plain 98 spec. ****
Quick spin in the supercharged DC2
This is my DC2 integra running a jackson racing Supercharger on approx 12psi max Boost.
10:1 compression B18c-R with stock ITR cams, CP pistons and eagle rods.
It has a 275cc meth injection nozzle pre-charger to cool the charger and keep IAT values down.
The blue light on top of the steering column indicates when the meth is being used, it's controlled by an S300 Hondata ECU.
It was 215hp at the wheels without the meth, havn't had it tuned to make use of the meth yet.
Allthough its not a very impressive peak power figure the thing is a hoot to drive, so much pull down low. Vtec now comes in at 3000rpm and it's rare to bother taking it over 6000rpm as it's already making tonnes of torque by then anyway.
It sort of feels like a 3.5 vtec V6 out of an accord or something but without the extra weight. It does not feel at all like a turbo car does because the power delivery is so flat.
Water Injection Test: Civic Supercharged at 9psi
This is a Water Injection Test on a Civic Supercharged at 9psi
DevilsOwn Stage 1 kit using 100% of Water, no methanol or ethanol
No Water Injection: 42.7-88.0=47.3 C
Water Injection DO1 after (89cc/min): 38.4-81.0=42.6 C
Water Injection DO2 before and DO1 after (267cc/min): 33.3-70.4=36.8 C
Water Injection DO4 before and DO1 after (446cc/min): 34.8-50.4=15.6 C
Forced Induction - Supercharger vs. Turbo Charger
This video was made to describe in moderate detail the differences between Superchargers and turbo Chargers, as well as describing the components, advantages, and disadvantages to each. Complementing the speaking track is a slideshow of related pictures and videos. I hope this video helps some of you curious up and coming mechanics to better understand methods of forced induction. Please comment maturely, and enjoy!
