High quality construction
Featuring the advanced, high-speed ASA TM1-12 supercharger unit which combines the efficiency of a turbocharger with the drivability and smoothness of a supercharger. This is the only high-speed, turbo impeller supercharger unit on the market combining a durable, synchronized gear transmission with a innovative clutch system that completely disengages the supercharger unit below 1000RPM for 100% silent idle operation. This feature also improves idle and low speed cruising emissions and fuel consumption. As this unit is based on mechanical gears it does not suffer from the reliability issues that most other high-speed, ball-geared supercharger units are haunted by, it also removes the necessity for external supercharger oil cooling which reduces weight and installation time/complexity as well as providing a cleaner looking engine room.
