hey just wondering if anyone has had any experience with electronic superchargers. Some questions i have are: do they work? are they reliable? etc, etc. lemme know if these are any good and how hard would it be to make one? thanks guys (and ladies).
conventional turbo: MECHANICAL - gas spins a turbine through physical contact
electric turbo : ELECTRICAL - engine CONVERTS mechanical energy to ELECTRIC energy, then ELECTRIC energy is converted to MECHANICAL energy via a centrifugal turbo.
The more energy conversions, the less efficient the system.
I´d probably just drop in a GTX, but I do also encourage thinking outside the box. 50hp does sound a little optimistic though. As does 10-15hp for a new intake. and 20-25hp for a new cat-back... those numbers are all high.
LMAO...u get one of those and i will surely come destroy your car for you...those things will NEVER give 50hp....those things push about 1 to 2 psi. All it is is a bilge pump for like a jetski sort of application hooked to a variable motor...TOTALLY RICE...U´d be lucky to get like 5 horsepower...but if u did gain like 10..u´d have to sacrifise ur dignity for it.
hehe...i can make some graphs w/ crayons....I´ll even throw in some pie charts...Those things will double ur horsepower if u increase the throttle rotor specs. or if they play with the crank case tinkering shaft u could pull about 100 horses off a electronic SUPER MEGA POWER supercharger...LMAO
Now correct me if I´m wrong but don´t superchargers run off a pulley on the crankshaft which then turns a rod connected to a turbine which compresses the incoming air?
I guess I´m just trying to figure out how is THAT a ´supercharger´ then? it looks more like a turbocharger and the other ones look like hair dryers.
All it´ll end up doing is slowing down the air creating more problems than it´s worth. $299 bucks. oh wait but it´s only $5.98 per horsepower! I agree with you pballer, I´d like to see some graphs and maybe even a car on the dyno with and without that product. :-?
