Performance with Economy - The RamAire System 670109

A novel method for the intermittent supercharging of an internal combustion engine in a vehicle is described. During full throttle operation, high pressure motivating air entrains ambient air and compresses it to an intermediate pressure in the diffuser of an air ejector. Flowing through the carburetor and into the engine, the supplemental air augments engine power, reducing vehicle acceleration time by as much as one-third. By allowing engine size to be reduced, better economy without loss of performance is possible. Typical vehicle installations are described and problem areas discussed.
