This is a special Technical Info article, reprinted from the original (and rare!) book that was supplied with superchargers purchased from Eldred Norman, Aussie racing legend and manufacturer of Norman Superchargers.

Although not a common method of modifying an FE or FC, the theory and information about fuel induction, carburettion and so on is fascinating. Many thanks to Tony (IhadaV8) for obtaining the book and providing it to us. Tony in turn thanks Mike Norman, for supplying a copy of his father's book.
