    Those are called centrifugal superchargers. They pretty much work like a turbo except its driven by a belt instead of exhaust gasses. For a daily driver escort with a small turbo you really don't have that much lag.
    heres a picture of my setup since i never posted it in here.

    There i updated the last post with some of the parts. I wouldn't recommend going without an intercooler, though others have on like 5-7psi or something like that.

    i know im asking loads of questions but how much psi are you running atm?
    An do you think this would be a tall order for a 15 year old. not considering the money?

    Right now i daily drive it at 10psi but i turn it up sometimes when i want a little more power, runs 15psi without a problem. It really depends on the skills and tools you have avalible whether or not you would have a successful build. You'll need welding and fabrication done and and the know-how to put everything together and not blow the motor. Proper tuning is also very important and at 15 i assume you probably wouldn't have the knowledge yet to tune the engine. It takes a lot of research and endless reading of the subject to get everything figured out and know what needs to be done. The last thing you want to do is get in over your head and end up getting rid of the car like many other members here seem to have done because they could never finish their turbo project or blew their motor(s) due to poor engine tuning.

    How are you running so much?
    Did I miss the part about low compression?

    I just returned from Lebanon Valley to see what my EXP turbo will run. My best time was 15.4 at 96 mph on street tires (Pepboys Futura 2000 26.4 lbs of air pressure) and factory 2"exhaust without catalytic converter. Second gear wheels kept spinning on me, so on my best pass I didn't launch aggressively in first gear, and I slowly accelerated second gear to 3500 rpms then punched it. 15 psi full throttle all the way till the end of third at around 5700 rpms. I shifted both 1st and 2nd at 6000 RPMS. Track scale weighed my car at 1938 lbs.

    60' ------ 2.5 seconds
    330' -----6.8 seconds
    660' -----10.2 seconds @ 75.6 mph
    1000' ----13.1 seconds
    1320'-----15.4 seconds @ 96.1 mph

    Based on my seeing here, I have a high 14 second car if I get better tires and mid 14s with better exhaust.

    My setup

    1.93 CVH Hybrid (1.6 turbo head on bored 1.9 HO) Balanced and blueprinted by Northeast Machinery
    Gasket matched and ported head and EXP turbo intake manifold
    Custom designed forged .020" over free floating pistons, 8.5 compression ratio
    Nissan 240SX Silvia ARP Con Rod Bolts
    Shot peened rods
    EXP turbocoupe manifolds - IHI VJ11/T-bird Hybrid boosting 15 PSI
    AN stainless turbo feed lines
    Mustang SVO 36lb injectors, VAM, and PK4 processor
    FM Yonaka motorsport intercooler
    Cometic MLS Head Gasket,
    87 GT baffled valve cover
    88 t-bird flywheel,
    ARP flywheel bolts
    89 taurus SHO 9.25"clutch and release bearing ( Factory clutch is 7.875")
    Innovate LC1 programmable wideband air fuel meter
    REVO motorsports oil and boost gauges contained on a custom carbon fiber gauge pod.

    ^If you want better times I would look into an LSD. If you have an open diff all you are going to end up doing is spinning 1 wheel no matter how good your tires are.

    Thats true but the car reaching 96.1 mph was impressive enough. My LN7 will be the one to get more specific to details.

    Besides with 2.5" exhaust and a computer tune my acceleration will definitely improve in 3rd gear, and even without LSD. any performance tire would have better grip than my pepboys futura 2000's.
