Customer Question
Have no boost from...

Have no boost from supercharger on a 95 Rivera

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your 9-5 yourself? What have you tried so far?

Engine and tranny rebuilt supposedly same with supercharger but it acts like a normally aspirated 3.8, no surge in power. How do I check to see if I'm getting any pressure from the supercharger?

Mechanic's Assistant: Besides this, what condition is the car in?

Excellent condition inside and out
