you know... I thought about that a long time ago, and EVERYONE I talked to about it laughed their heads off at me.. :| I think I have to find an old blower motor and start playing now.. Being electric, you could set a switch/reostat to turn it on after a little throttle and gradualy increace with throttle.. (so as not to be blowing into the carbs at idle, but boosting as much as posible near WOT) I'm just running twin SU's, but hey.. if I could get 2-3 psi of 'boost' in there why not?!? :lol:

Well that's.. Unique. 


I see the holy grail as an electric axial compressor right in the intact tract. Boost on demand and super easy to retro fit.

I've always had a good laugh when someone posts asking about electric super chargers, but seeing Eaton is involved now, this has me interested. Ill have to watch the video when i return home this evening.

Mercedes has something very similar that they are putting on their new inline-6 that they're coming out with as well.




The one system pretty much deletes all belt driven accessories.
