Judson Supercharger (1954-)
One of the most rare items for fifties' and sixties' Volkswagen is a Judson supercharger, mechanic charger positioned between carburettor and manifold.
The charger was available at first as a 30hp model and later in sixties' also as a 34hp model. The supercharger kit includes of course the charger, aircleaner, crankshaft pulleys and pulley belts, Marvel oiler, throttle linkage, air jet and stronger fuel pump spring. In 1957 Road&Track tested Judson-powered beetle and acceleration 0-60mph time cutted in 18 seconds (without Judson 28 seconds) and the horsepower increasing was almost 50%.
