View Full Version : Supercharged recips?

I am looking for good reference work on the inner workings of turbo/supercharged reciprocating engines. Engineering stuff with all the gory details in excruciating detail.

Online and book references alike. Yes, I've read the Pelican's Perch series. :)

Being a child of the jet age, my education sort of skipped over high-performance aero recips. Most depressing. Turbos will never come anywhere near a 2000+ hp V12 or corncob radial in raw power-generating appeal!

Cheers,
Fred
