Guys it’s RUvid having problems not my vid. Try skipping ahead to 7:00 if you get stopped, that seems to be working for people. If it continues, perhaps logout and back in. I know there was a recent app update... ugh 😑

For 2500 bucks for the price not worth it

The China turbo in the last episode was wired wrong because when it was turned on the Dyno with the Mustang it was spinning backwards. You need to revisit the old turbo on a smaller displacement engine.

Must be nice to have people hand you $10,000 gifts to review lol. That being said everybody should be aware that headers on a stock car are somewhat of a negligible performance enhancer however when added to a fully breathing open car it is a different story

Cut the exhaust off and if only they cut away where the wheel would spin easier with button off so no power loss and that would be sweet also would be cool if it produced up to 10 psi five is not quite worth the 2500 bucks

Put that in a actual powerful car! I bet you will be surprised even more!
You’re going to get 20hp with that system’s 70-80k rpms, to play that game you want 200,000 rpms. The Formula 1 Brabhams team of the mid-80s achieved 1400hp using a 1.5 liter cast iron 4 cylinder BMW stock engine block with one turbo (granted, almost as big as the engine) and 80 psi of boost. It won everything and the FIA banned it. Brabhams used stock BMW road car blocks that had over 100,000 miles on them (the engine originally powered a little sedan for decades) because the iron was reliably proven and wouldn’t blow up the engine with the boost. For comparison, the Bugatti Veyron/Chiron W16, made of billet aluminum, is 8 liters, uses four turbos to achieve similar horsepower, but requires THREE GALLONS of oil ($21,000 oil change). Iron’s melting point double that of aluminum.

You should have went with the SS Cobalt. A super charged turbo Cobalt SS would have been interesting to see. Not that this E-turbo isn't interesting enough by itself but a supercharged turbo car...come on!!

You should have run the car with some kind of filter first no? You really don't see filterless of na cars right?

You guys need to go do a little basic chemistry. Methanol has a higher octane than regular gasoline, that much is true, but octane isn't a measure of the amount of power or energy in the fuel. Gasoline has almost 2 times the energy as methanol on a per gram basis. The only reason racers use methanol in a race car instead of gasoline is because you can increase the boost easier in the engine without premature detonation (that's where the octane rating comes in) but if you were to use other methods to deal with the lower octane rating of the gasoline and were putting the same amount of gasoline into the engine as you were methanol the gasoline engine would have more power. If you want to increase the power without the detonation problem you might start with using either real racing gasoline, or aviation gas, either of which will have a higher octane rating than your regular gas. If you still have detonation problem then you can hook up a water mist to the intake so allow a fine mist of water into the combustion chamber which will also help eliminate the knocking from the turbo. Do those things and you should easily be able to go beyond 200hp with the engine.

try mapping it you dorks the it will produce more power without leaning out duh. higher octane wont release more power without mapping. high octane fuel doesnt halve more energy it just resists det more.

WTF... this is an electric SUPERCHARGER. Turbos are driven by exhaust gases, the exact definition specifies it is a "turbine driven" device.

I mean I don’t believe in the turbo, but this is a completely worthless test... how are they adjusting for fuel? If you are adding a bunch of air with no fuel, you won’t make power
Rowdy Flyer1903
Rowdy Flyer1903 Month ago
One other observation is it seems to be an adaption of an existing Garret or Borg style turbocharger. Is that the most efficient? Could another system which might be used for another industry such as the aircraft turbofans or jet be better? Of course not at such a reasonable price.
Rowdy Flyer1903
Rowdy Flyer1903 Month ago
Well why the heck not? I do not know what kind of horse power is required to have an effective boost. 750 watts of electric motor power is 1 horsepower. I don’t know how many amp hours this system has but if you can relate 9.6 amp hour battery and a 350 watt motor will propellant electric bike for an hour. It’s a grand idea if a worry free interface with the engine engine control unit. Is there a Megasquirt for this rig? I’m in!

So if my Cadillac is 444hp if I hook that up to the intake I will have 563hp? For real 😳

I appreciated your time and I appreciated your intelligent comment however the mere fact that you are putting those on a stock car in the gates any questions regarding power gains. I would think most of us in this community realize that headers make the most difference in addition to all the other ancillary improvements you can make in airflow period headers by themselves probably not worth it however in a fully built car that's breathing it's a different story

you have to use a bypass, so you have no loss with build in but not used turbo.

It it didnt eat power when not on it would be ok . 160 at the wheels for a cobolt 2.2 is big power. A “button” supercharger like this is cool for an NA car or to get rid of lag but it can’t run through the intake eat power all the time it’s not on plus add weight so except for drag racing a cobolt it’s a fail . The price makes it a fail as well .
McGee Month ago
Imagine a power surge like that and it happens on account of a little solenoid which activates your secondary cam lobe... Yeah, that's just VTEC folks. Best part about that is, raised RPM limit, longer pull in lower gear takes better advantage of gearing ratios and scoots along quite nicely. So there you have it.
