  • Supercharged VFR800

    I was reminded of this thread by the new discussion about turbo'ing a GSXR600. This is a complete home job, very impressive. I wasted about a whole day at work reading right through the whole thing...

                Well everyone on the VFR forum is alternating between hero-worshipping the dude and asking when he will make one for the 6th-gen&#39;s. It&#39;s slightly sickening to be honest...

                  How do you go about &#39;tuning&#39; the supercharger for VTEC. Coping with effectively 2 different cam profiles in the one engine must make it a bit difficult. You would need to compromise between the 2.

                    Barfie, You loose the Vtec when going forced aspiration to do it right.

                      aah, fair enough. I thought it would be a bit tricky to do with it still in place.

                      Cheers for the info

                        1998 Model VFR is non-VTEC.

                            I thought Vtec just opened all 4 valves over a certain RPM instead of using only 2???

                            If your going forced induction surely you&#39;d just have all 4 opening over the whole rev range

                              Yep it would be hard but this isn&#39;t a Vtec model! Vtec started in 2002; the first of the 800&#39;s still had the gear driven cams (which the Vtec doesn&#39;t) and a different chassis / running gear / fairing.

                              Supercharging the 1998 / 2002 model would be relatively easy and very cool!! With the sound from the gear driven cams and the scream of a supercharger - magnificent!!
