I have seen electric turbos on ebay for a couple hundred bucks claiming 35 to 65 hp gain,is this real or just a joke?
:? A washing machine motor reworked to spin at 11,000 RPM?? That must be quite a sight to see! I can't help but picture motor parts flying everywhere at that speed. The centrifugal force on the rotor alone would be tremendous. My guess is that there's more to the inverter than just a simple DC to AC conversion. Perhaps a gated electronic variable frequency motor drive is included in the design?Yoterfan said:My teacher helped develop roller-bearing engines with John Lingenfelter and also helped to design the current engines in Top Fuel cars. He has developed an electric turbo that uses a t-25 housing and compressor wheel that uses an AC motor from a wasing machine that has been worked to spin up to 11,000 rpm. The motor runs straight off the alternator and uses an inverter about the size of an intercooler that's mounted above the intake. When he activates the turbo he gets instantaneous boost (about 11 psi) for any amount of time that he chooses. He's trying for a patent right now....should be pretty cool when it's finally done.
Ahh last year they were using the marine bilage pumps. Haha, ebay is a damned joke. It's best to get stuff from star members and avoid turd products now days. Took me 3 days to find a Megan Racing fartcan to pop on my Chimp turbo back exhaust (sorry folks, magnaflow doesn't float my boat, friend has teh Megan Racing fartcan on his MKIII sounds sweet)._HOT_M16 said:...it isn't the bilge pump, but rather the blower fan, has a 3" inlet and outlet, and a small electric fan in the middle.... Definate restriction, DO NOT ATTEMPT.
