The following formula is used to convert boost from supercharger into generated horsepower.
Boost to HP Formula
HP = B * .07
HP to Boost Formula
B = HP / .07
- Where HP is the horsepower
- B is the boost (PSI)
Boost is defined as the total pressure, most often measured in PSI, that a turbocharger or supercharger injects into the engine of a car. The injected air increases the horsepower of the engine for a small period of time.
Boost to Horsepower Example
How to calculate horsepower from boost?
- First, determine the total amount of boost.
Measure the pressure in PSI delivered by the supercharger.
- Next, determine the generated horsepower.
Calculate the estimated gained horsepower from the boost using the equation above.
Boost is the pressure delivered to an engine from a supercharger that temporarily increases the engine horsepower/output.
