Just for good measure I think i'll throw one of these on TURBO MAGNETS ! http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Turbo...QQcmdZViewItem

and finally I think I'm going to put a set of these on my open headers when I go to the track. http://www.spiralmax.com/tet.htm

I figure by the time i'm done I should be making about 600hp and getting 40-50 mpg
This idiot is right. In the ad it states "How long will it take before I see an improvement in my mileage?

You should notice a change almost immediately. " Yep you will notice a change of your wallet being $26.90 lighter.

we used to tell folks at the gas station I worked as a kid that we had mickey thomson air for tires. This makes me want to charge up some canisters and see if I could get some bids on racing air in a can..... just unbelievable what one sees on EBUST. good catch, very funny. I do not feel sorry for the morons that buy this kind of stuff, cause they are after cheep horsepower and deserve to get the right value for their money. You known the saying if it is cheep or free it must be a good deal...... right? and a blower motor for 149.00 ........... pretty cheep, ah but not free..

I buy parts for real(GMC) blowers on Ebay occasionaly,and find that there are literally hundreds of auctions for these "electronic" superchargers.They must be pretty popular with the ricers.

Just as a point of reference,

a close friend of mine works for Emerson electric motors and they are prototyping a bad little motor to be put into a electric "turbo" system (that's what they call it, although it's clearly a supercharger).

But it's only going on a very small 4 cyl. car. Can't remember which, and I said it's a proto. Don't know if it will ever make it into anything.

Assuming the electric motor and fan are capable of actualling creating some boost (I think the proto was supposed to do 2-4psi IIRC, don't know the flow at that pressure), it may work okay on a small motor - and look at the mechanical simplicity. No belts, fancy exhaust tubing, blah blah. Just ON and OFF.

Now all we need is an alternator (or two ) that will support that much current draw - course I guess it would only be on a small percentage of time (WOT).

That being said, that eBay version surely would be worth $5.00.

I bought one of the "Superchargers" once and took it to the dyno to prove a point a few years ago. I accually lost 5hp if I remember right. I will look for the video and post it up.

That hair dryer will probably restrict airflow at high rpms...

But, wasnt Mazda dumping serious money developing these type of turbos a few years ago?

I got this article via google on Rotarynews.com:

Car and Driver Magazine is reporting...RX-8 concept at the 2003 Tokyo Autoshow. The electric-motor-assist turbocharger is used to maximize the effectiveness of forced induction throughout the RPM range. At low engine speeds, beginning at approximately 1000 rpm, an electric motor operates to assist the turbocharger and increase induction efficiency. At high rpm, the turbocharger is driven in a traditional fashion, by the flow of exhaust gas alone.

Now that's a good idea ! If you can suck in .5% of the millions of morons out there you will be rollin in the doe ray mee . I think I'm going to go work on a turbine that sticks out of your hood and catches the air .Hmmmmm the faster you go the more CFMs it could be limitless ..... at 80 it could be spinning at 2000 cfms which would almost instantly shot you to 120 but then it would be spinning at 3000 cfms which would almost definetly shot you to 150 where would it stop .........I gotta get to work on this!!!

I never thought of that and most of the R@D is already done .Probably have to beef up the bearings as the wind rarely gets over 50 here.And if you put one on each side of the hood, for a few extra dollars you could have the twin attic ventilator horsepower adder. Limitless just limitless!
