Indicated on dynamometric stand LPS 2510 dependences of the engine power and a torque on the crankshaft frequency have been presented in the article. The car VAZ 2123 "Chevrolet Niva"(without catalytic converter) and the engine VAZ 21214 with the mechanical supercharger (compressor) PK-23 have been tested. It is established that configuration of the engine with the compressor has allowed not only to restore the lost power of the motor as a result of extended operation, but also to increase it. It is shown that the content of carbon monoxide and products of incomplete combustion of hydrocarbons in the exhaust gases does not exceed standard values of volume fractions of CO and CH. It is established that registered by the indicator of OKTAN values of gasoline are identical to those declared by the manufacturer. © Published under licence by IOP Publishing Ltd.
