Re: [T3] Hill Climbing and power loss.


JimA=> if the supercharged system was set up to always
=> give sea level intake pressure, then the fueling system
=> would never see any change.

What I meant to ask, rather, is that if the supercharged system is 
set up to provide the correct fuel mixture at sea level, wouldn't that 
mixture still change at altitude? The mechanism is constant, but the 
air density is not, right? Or are you saying that with elevated intake 
pressure, the density differential just becomes negligible?

=> Supercharging, even if it only brought the intake pressure 
=> back up to sea level, would keep our outputs constant

Are we comparing no supercharger at sea level vs. supercharger at altitude?
