I talked with Jackson Racing and they said that they are working on a TypeS supercharger based around the eaton blower as per usual. This should be out by middle to late this year with the base version near the end of the year......

It'll be interesting to see how they deal with the variable cam timing.

Read: this year, unless you think its still 2001....

JR has dealt with variable valve timing before (b16,d16,b18c), i dont see why it will be a problem now.

increasing airflow won't be a problem for the engine. only thing i would be worried about is running to lean but the ECU will sense more air being crammed in and adjust to more fuel. also a few mods like maybe a bipes ECU (which will trick the ECU into running more fuel and less timing) are cheap and relatively easy to put on.

if you can gain 40hp to the wheels off of it and lose some weight, drop a LSD and new clutch and flywheel you have the potential to see 13's tuned.

Heh, A bad attempt at a joke on my part. I meant that their stuff is never out when they say it's going to be. Exhibit A: the prelude kit. It came out years later than they projected.

And they've never had to deal with variable intake cam timing (iVTEC). I bet there's a lot of power to be found with it if tuned properly for a forced induction application (reducing overlap).

Those had only two cam settings, the RSX has an infinite amount. Much harder to deal with.

To those wondering-I bet that some boost kits will simply shut the VTC off. Seems to me it would be much simpler and cheaper.

it only took JR 4 months to get the supercharger out for the civic SI and to also get it carb approved. who knows how long it will take but i assure you they are workign on it.

WTF are talking about?:dontknow:
I doubt you can tell me anything I don't know about how i-VTEC works.

Here is my problem. We have high compression engine. That doesnt mean that you cant run boost it just means that you cant run very much boost. Moreover, our cams are completley variable and advances the timming under WOT. The very last thing that you want to do is to ADVANCE your timming under boost.

It just seems like a bad combo(ie boost/adv. timming, and H.C.)
