Is a Optimax Super charged?

As I understand the Optimax engine has an compressed air system that injects high pressure air (80psi) into the cylinder along with the fuel. Now in my book thats supercharging, or am I missing something.

No and yes!


No it isn't supercharged and yes you are missing something!

It uses a smal amount of compressed air in the fuel injection process - it doesn't compress all the air going into the engine like a supercharger or turbocharger does - hope that helps - Cookee
