Hi,

I´m thinking about going supercharger. Mechanical question (instalation of supercharger, fuel pressure, etc.) I have answered. But I don´t know what stock ECU will say on boost. My car has no MAP or MAF sensor. I have only Intake Air Temperature sensor in my car. So can I instal superchager and driving or I will have problems with engine management??

It´s my engine. You can see that are not sensor between airbox and intake manifold. In this time my engine looks different, but important thinks (hose from air filter to throttle body is the same).

You might have engine management issues. Factory tuning does not necessarily mean it can run safely with boost.

It´s 1997 elantra/coupe betaI engine.
Even with that year of car, running boost with a ECU set for a N/A mapping likely will cause problems. Normally, the ecu advances timing as the rpm rises. With a boosted engine, you don't want the engine to have the timing advancing as far.

You need to consider the additional fuel requirements, which the ECU likely won't be able to compensate for as well.

If I understand somethink as Apexi SAFC can help me. I know Standalone ecu is the best way but I don´t have experience with engine management.....
