So what do you guys know about these electric turbos that fit onto the intake? Do they actually improve performance or is it just a buch of bologna. I saw these on e-bay if you are wondering.

There´s one made by a company called the E-Ram (its an electric supercharger, techically). The thing requires almost another battery and an alternator twice the power as stock to get like 1psi boost. the E-Ram was like 800 bucks too. I´ve spent another 1000 over that and its looking like I can run 8psi on the street and probably 10-12psi on the track right now.

Those things are crup and will like Blade said will give you max 1psi. But I think those things don´t work at all. There was a company who was designing full blown electric turbo that will push up to 9psi. Simply saing regular turbo pushed by hispeed rotary motor. up to 10-15k rpm.

I was pretty sure it was a load of [email protected] I´m mean if they did work and sold for 200 bucks on e-bay, I think turbo manufacturers would start going out of business. Thanx for the confirmation though. BTW, ignore the other post about this topic, unless your interested why the same two posts written by the same person exist in the first place. Really its not that important, but if you really have the NEED to waste time, feel free to do so.

Will any of the cosworth parts bolt up to the 2nd gens? It;s a shame if they don´t,the scort would look sweet if it could be done!!

For the most part Hole the Cosworth parts will not work...except I´ve seen the whaletale wing be fitted. But the headlights, grill, bumper, skirts, etc is different. And the motor is a 2.0L turbo motor, not a 1.8L.

These infact do not work. Yeah tops they give you 1 psi but when your runnin max rpm the electric motor aint doing anything but restricting air due to the fact the engine is pulling it faster than the electric motor can put it out.

What trash.. i feel sorry for a person that wasted there money on these. I am almost sure it would actually decrease air flow and lower your HP. Dont waste your money.. get a turbo.

People always forget that the alternator saps torque out of your engine every time you draw more power from it. Whenever you take mechanical energy (like the spinning of an alternator belt) and transfer it to electrical engergy (like in an alternator) and then put that electrical energy into an electric motor (like in the e-ram), you´re using more mechanical energy to make heat in the motor and from the beating of the air by fan blades than you´re gaining from pushing in a little more air.
