New for 2019
Introducing Hamburger's All-New Centrifugal-Type
SUPERCHARGER KITS
Specialty Vehicle Engineering, our parent company (formerly SLP) has been manufacturing performance parts and specialty vehicles for GM dealers and performance enthusiasts for over 30 years. From 1996-2002 we built over 55,000 Camaro SS, RS, and Firebird-based WS-6, Firehawk and Comp-TA specialty vehicles as GM’s Tier One supplier. As of the 2018 model year we’ve also built over 1000 supercharged Camaros, Full-Size GM Trucks and SUV specialty vehicles.

When it comes to superchargers, we've been installing aftermarket superchargers for quite a number of years, so we recognized the need for an OEM-quality supercharger kit in the aftermarket offering quiet operation, improved performance and compact size. We've been able to incorporate all of those improvements in our new supercharger kits being offered in this catalog, through extensive design work and testing, resulting in easier installation, better serviceability, and best of all increased performance.

The new HAMBURGER'S Supercharger kits for GM, Dodge and Jeep applications will impress you from the moment you open the box, to the first time you start your engine.

Aftermarket Centrifugal Supercharger
The superchargers we offer use a state-of-the-art traction drive system to drive the impeller, rather than the traditional gear drive system aftermarket companies use. This allows the superchargers we offer to spin higher (impeller speeds up to 90,000 rpm vs. aftermarket units @ 65,000 rpm), along with virtually no noise or "gear whine" that is typical of other superchargers.  This Traction Drive System transmits power through the friction created between its planetary rollers and a unique hydraulic fluid, rather than through the gear drives aftermarket companies use. To ensure optimum performance,  we use a unique traction fluid in the system that is designed to increase viscosity under high  surface pressures. This fluid gives the rollers additional "grip" and prevents slippage by increasing the friction between the planetary rollers, while also cooling and protecting the system. This traction drive system combined with the latest technology in centrifugal compression provides greater efficiency and lower noise, giving the superchargers we offer much higher efficiency compared to aftermarket centrifugal or positive displacement superchargers, along with very quiet operation.

3 – MORE FUEL EFFICIENT
Positive displacement superchargers can have significant parasitic loads, a characteristic that decreases fuel economy at light throttle driving conditions, while the centrifugal superchargers we offer will not adversely affect fuel economy under light throttle driving conditions. 
By using a physically smaller supercharger that still meets the airflow demands of the engine, we reduce the system inertia, which results in less wasted power spinning the compressor.

4 – SELF-CONTAINED TRACTION OIL SYSTEM
HSV Supercharger Oil System
The superchargers we offer use a dedicated oil system that ensures both lubrication, cooling, and actual torque transfer.  The traction oil is circulated by an internal oil pump through the traction drive and the external oil circuit.  The oil system contains an oil canister, oil cooler, filter, hoses and fittings.  The traction oil has an incredible life of 24,000 miles or 2 years before it needs changing, compared to other centrifugal superchargers that have a required 6,000 mile oil change interval.  This means less time in the shop and more time on the road.


5 – EASE OF INSTALLATION
Designed and engineered with easy installation in mind, our supercharger kits utilize the highest quality materials and OEM-style wire harnesses and connectors to ensure a quick and professional looking installation. 
One of our supercharger kits typically installs in less than a day for the first time installer.

6 – MORE EFFICIENT
A cooler intake air charge produces more horsepower! 

The centrifugal supercharger kits we offer utilize the most efficient air-to-air intercoolers for all of our vehicle applications. Our intercoolers are designed to pull out the maximum amount of heat, providing the lowest intake air temperature-increases, compared to aftermarket superchargers.  The overall efficiency of heat transfer is reduced with a positive displacement supercharger, because these systems use air-to-water-to-air intercoolers. This means that the heat generated by compressing the air is first transferred through a small heat exchanger inside the supercharger.  Some heat is taken out via the circulated liquid coolant and brought to a secondary heat exchanger in the front of the vehicle, where the heat has to be taken from the coolant via the airflow across the front heat exchanger. 
Since there is no such thing as a perfect or ideal heat transfer, the overall efficiency is reduced, because there are two heat transfers that need to take place instead of only one.  With air-to-air intercooling like ours, there is only one heat transfer and no moving parts, so the system is simpler and 100% reliable all of the time.  There are no coolant pumps to fail, or electrical connections to worry about, which could lead to catastrophic damage in the event of a failure. In a positive displacement system, the heat exchanger inside the supercharger is almost always undersized and limited to the space inside the supercharger case, while an air-to-air intercooler can be optimally sized, and placed at the front of the vehicle where there is much more space and higher airflow.

7 – MEETS OR EXCEEDS OEM STANDARDS
These supercharger kits were designed to meet OEM standards for compactness, efficiency, and silent operation. Their compact design allows superiorlow engine speed performance, compared to aftermarket centrifugal units.
Where the efficiency of roots and screw type superchargers fall off at higher rpms, the superchargers we offer continue to increase power at higher rpms, while the traction drive allows for quiet operation.

8 – EMISSION LEGAL IN ALL 50 STATES (EXCLUDING TUNER KITS)
Emission compliance is very important to Hamburger’s Superchargers, so our engineering team has worked hard to ensure that our supercharger kits CARB D-774-2meet the compliance standards set by C.A.R.B. (California Air Resources Board) for those vehicles we offer a supercharger kit and PCM calibration for. Our supercharger kits are 50-state emission legal and are covered by the appropriate E.O. numbers. 
The supplied calibrations are intended for stock vehicles with or without a cat-back exhaust system, but with no other engine modifications made.  

For those individuals wanting to push the performance limits of their engine, and use other aftermarket performance parts, we also offer a "tuner" kit which comes without a calibration. Our Tuner kits require a custom calibration which can be provided by a local tuning shop with calibration tuning capabilities. Tuner kits are not 50 -state emission legal and not available for sale in California.

9 – STANDARD 3 YEAR/36,000 MILE LIMITED PARTS WARRANTY
Hamburger’s Superchargers warrants its supercharger kits and components to be free from defects in material and workmanship for 3 years or 36,000 miles, whichever comes first.

10 – NEW STANDARD 3 YEAR/36,000 MILE LIMITED POWERTRAIN WARRANTY
Hamburger’s Superchargers Optional Limited Powertrain Warranty covers the vehicle’s engine, transmission and rear axle assembly, for a period of 3 years (from date of purchase from Hamburger’s Superchargers) or up to a total of 36,000 miles (as shown on the odometer), whichever comes first. 
Not available on Stage II kits or Tuner kits.

11 – ENGINEERED AS A COMPLETE KIT
All of the superchargers we offer are designed and engineered as a complete kit. They include everything necessary to ensure a clean and simple installation. All installation hardware is included and parts are organized into individual sub-assemblies in the boxes they are packed in.
Our detailed installation manual will walk you through the install process step by step.

12 – DESIGNED IN 3D CAD
3D Cad Screenshot
Our supercharger kits are completely engineered and designed in 3D CAD to ensure precise fit  and maximum performance. All of our mounting brackets are machined from aircraft quality 6061-T6 ½” thick aluminum. All of our hard air tubes are rotationally molded using automotive grade composite resins,and soft air tubes are manufactured using high temperature reinforced silicone.  Our intercoolers are optimally sized for their respective applications, and are vacuum brazed and pressure tested during manufacturing to ensure the highest quality.  We utilize OEM quality double bearing idlers where necessary, for maximum reliability, as well as OEM style connectors and wire harnesses for an easy, clean, and reliable installation.
