    Supercharger power button.

    I cannot believe how silly and wasteful we are!! Many of us with a supercharger just drive around all willy-nilly really just using far too much air and fuel. So.... hear me out. This was on a movie last night and got me thinking, how come NOBODY here thought of installing a supercharger on/off button? According to this short clip, it seems pretty straightforward. Then, you only use what you need when racing, being a get-away car, or even handily dusting off that Saturn Coupe with the unpainted urethane body kit. Plus, it makes the whine wayyyyy louder.

    Plot twist: The supercharger was fake; the switch that was flicked on was plugged into Chuck Norris's body and it was his adrenaline that boosted the engine...

    Mercedes has clutched superchargers from the factory, they work flawlessly according to a benz enthusiast friend of mine.

    I think one of the Mad Max movies had a car with a switch for the supercharger.
