Re: [DML] SuperCharger and Engine Vacuum



Nick - you will need to provide an alternate vacuum source if you 
supercharge your car.  An electric vacuum pump and a reservoir 
will be enough to run accessories like your power brake booster
and HVAC system.  Devices that rely on the difference between 
manifold pressure and absolute pressure - like the advance for 
the distributor need a different kind of change.  The distributor on 
my Esprit uses a push-pull mechanism.  The diaphragm that drives
the advance has a port for a vacuum line and one for a pressurized
line.  This way, as boost builds, you don't lose advance.  I haven't
looked at what systems use manifold vacuum, but a similar system
could be devised for them.
