Consider the air flow rate into the inlet manifold and compare it with the flow rate of this electric turbo.
You might as well take some cooling fans off your PC and place them in the inlet pipe

Not so much forced induction as gently coaxed induction.

Electric superchargers are becomjng popular with OEMs, will be common place in 5years, but as 'torque curve fillers'not currently aimed to replace exhauat gas or belt driven 'chargers.

No idea if this ones any good, but one will be along soon that may make us all change our minds.

If you actually watch the wideo (they’re German) it actually looks ok.

I did consider a simialr home brewed version for the SS1 and even had a pretty chunky multi stage (3?) centrifugal fan but reckoned that I'd need a pretty hefty leccy motor to deliver enough wind at anything above tick-over. and not much spare space under bonnet :-(

There are standard 'nomo-graphs' in desk drawer at work (made up before days of tinternet) that show how much HP is needed to shift wind/water/oil etc , I'll try and look on Monday

I'm assuming this is for the V6 vauxhall? so even bigger leccy needed, just look at the width of a drive belt on a super-charger !!!!

Nomograms, don't you just love 'em... :D
I had to get the book out; the one I'm looking at relates torque factor to airscrew diameter to engine speed - perhaps I could fit a model aero-engine in front of the carb and get some boost that way.. 8)

Looks like very expensive snake oil to me! What you get and specs really say nothing relevant and pics show puny wiring....

yep, gives a fair indication of the figure, might not be accurate to n decimal palces but at least within sptting distance, and also makes sure that you have not typed in a wrong number into the equation, especially important if there are any square or cube factors :wink:
