Sad Dana: if you get a turbo charger or a super charger why go through all the
trouble modifying it and slapping on an electric motor when u can just use
the it in the car? lol
Alexander B.: I don't understand why people on here are saying that turberchargers don't
work. Do they even understand how COMPRESSED MAF works? It's been proven
already. There's math that goes along with it to explain it.
jake stockton: Coming from a mechanic, these are gimmicks. End of story. Move along
everyone. There's nothing more to see here.
stujb: Assuming this does do as you say, what about all the other important
factors? If you force more air into the engine, then you need to increase
fuel into the chamber. If you increase fuel you will also need to adjust
the point of spark. You can't just increase air flow and gain power. You
need to adjust everything.
metralha761: Hi, thanks for that explanation in the video!
I'm trying to find asynchronous supercharger project, well at least is what
I call it. Why call that? the concept is between the conventional turbo
charger and an electric super charger, with what I have in my mind, I think
it's possible to have high pressure with electric super charger.
ProRockJK: This crap don't make no boost!!!!
Put it in a Dino bro.
Frank Furter: WHY is it that you think you'd need all of those batteries if the
alternators are pumping out gobs of power in the numbers that you cited?
How long do you think anyone would need to run the alternators to run the
equivalent HP in an AC motor like you cited from Baldor? Constantly? What
are the RPM of that electric motor? It's probably like around 1,725 or so,
and that is why it needs to be such a honkin' beast to make 30 HP. And
it's most likely a 440/460V 3 phase AC motor too. Do you know what the
differences are between AC motors and DC motors? Stop and think here for a
minute or two, PLEASE!
Deep cycle batteries are able to take a bit more abuse than standard
automotive ones, but they're not the end of all creation. How far down do
you think you'd be drawing down a battery of any type for a sporadic use
such as this anyway? Batteries store electrons in the acid electrolyte,
that's why the specific gravity changes when the battery is charged up and
is discharged. Distilled water is used in batteries to keep the
concentration of the H2SO4 at the correct percentage rather than tap water
because the dissolved minerals will cause problems.
But in all of this, I never once said anything to advocate using an
electric motor to run a super charger, did I? Maybe it can be done with a
permanent magnet starter motor that has been modified for short bursts of
power, but NOT for continuous duty as you seem to think would be the
no bad words hash: thanks a lot
Roger Colinayo: i think electric supercharger / turbocharger are good for eliminating the
turbo lag. If we can use twin turbo one electric turbo and 1 conventional
turbo during low rpm engine, electric turbo can help create pressure
instantaneously then at a certain speed the conventional turbo will fill in
as the engine back pressure is increasing.
Tom Tangle: Im tryna figure out the mechanical electrical relationship... Does the
power created from the car battery spin the impellar to specific speeds
depending on rpm ?
Fred Perez: where is an actual video of a real test on a car in a dyno
Stefan Cvetanovic: hello ! i have one question . i saw electric superchargers on ebay ,and i
was wondering ,can i install this kind of supercharger on my kymco agility
50 ccm scooter? :D
Eric Nutter: I want to know how long a battery can sustain the current required to spin
that motor at the 20,000 to 30,000 rpm required to get boost.
Joshua Naranjo: F1 cars use something similar but it's complicated cross between a turbo,
electric pulled, and a generator with a management system...supposedly
incredible gas mileage,torque and power. Of course tons more involvement on
the engineering side of things
epcenter5hz: This Guy sounds like "Just Blaze"
Jacob Regamey: any updates? what motor is ideal? what rpm for how much pressure etc
janoah365: man build me one..lol
2bidfilmsguy: wouldn't it just be a better idea to run an electric motor up to a
centrifugal supercharger? instead of having the pulley run by a belt off
the engine it could just be mated to a motor, and that way hypothetically
you could make peak boost almost instantly rather than at red line which
would be a drawback of the same supercharger being run off an engine belt
tuscolian: To create a device like this, you need to understand the engineering of
physics and aerodynamics. Using a turbocharger compressor gets you part way
there as they have a pressure map. The turbo is an air compressor and an
engine is an air pump. To develop pressure between them, you need to
produce more air volume than the engine requires normally.You would need to
spin the shaft at increasing speed with an increased RPM of the engine. I
takes a lot of HP to produce that much volume and pressure. I'm skeptical
of how economical an electric motor big enough to make that much HP would
be, not to mention a high power motor controller.
Jr Ram: Where can I buy one
NeverEnough: Hey Bro, your link to the build is dead. I'd like to see your plans.
Rob Sewell: Where can I get one will it work on a 98 maxima
hotpapayasalad: according to ohms law it doesn't work. you're taking power to make power
and what's worst you're taking power from the electric system from your
vehicle which it need the most. your lights will dim, your spark plug will
not fire to its full potential which results lost in horsepower and poor
gas mileage. its like adding a stereo system in your car with out any
modification done. any INDUCTIVE LOAD such as elector motor will pull mass
amount of juice. you'll over work your alternator!!!
Tyler Looney: how did you make that real supercharger into an electric supercharger i
would love to know, because im in the process of building up my 98 chevy
metro into a custom turbo gasser but i dont have alot of money to do much.
so i would love to know how to make and install your custom prototype
electric supercharger. please make a video in the near future on how to
construct and install the prototype. thank you
Anthony Gillian: the turbo makes boost because it spins at 100,000X a minute, while your
electric fan is just wasting electricity
Loretta Bain: What's for dinner dude?
Daniel Allison: how can I get one of those electric superchargers? looks more legit than
those ebay ones cant find them on your site
Andres Perez: 1) So this electric supercharger can compress air and produce boost because
the motor can spin at high RPM?
2) How much torque does the electric motor have at these RPM?
3) How much back-pressure can it take before having any kind of compressor
4) How is the impeller speed controlled for different RPMs and boost
5) Did you adjust the OEM compressor map for the air resistance vs electric
MIKE J: you got any dyno videos
PP van dorst: lets sie some dyno testing
casey james: the outlet in the motor?Nope later
Danny Hoadley: Jesus Christ there are so many electrical and mechanical engineers out
there who can't seem to agree on the conservation of energy. The creator of
electric superchargers/turbos must know how to bend the laws of physics. My
mind is blown.
skeggjold gunnr: Of course a real compressor impeller creates boost! Why ask "does it work"?
What, you're hung up on the *source* of drive power? WHY? Electricity can
be controlled more easily and have none of the drawbacks of exhaust gasses
or a crankshaft / belt drive. Electric motors can provide WAY more RPM's
(with belt / pulley) and WAY more torque than you could ever use...and do
it more efficiently. This IS the answer for the smart. Great job on a great
jayden hewer: Electric superchargers are a great idea if pushed into production for
people like me who wants to increase there performance without getting down
and dirty with manifolds and drive belt systems. people like me would be
happy with 3-4 psi of boost, if you want 18 psi get a turbocharger. Do you
foresee electric turbos being available to the consumer any time soon? Is
a system the is natural aspirated when the supercharger is off a
possibility? This would be excellent for a capacitor system.
Ciber: What if you buy one of those electric ones and connect a little weed eater
2 stroke engine to the fan to make it turn faster? That would create some
Jenalin Balela: You may be able to boost an engine electrically with large capacitors.
Problem is motor might get fried from all the current
fulldisclosure hour: nice man good explanation of how a turbo works and these ebay guys are
Amanda Wright: You have no idea what you're talking about.
HomasterX: the 2nd prototype looks promising
Ronald Holley: Ok I'm looking at a electric supercharger that's 60 amps and 837 watts I
think and 1psi I can give u the name if u need it just email me and I'll
give u more info and says it can give me a 5 to 10 percent more hp what do
Dragonstud: awesome explanation, I'd like to add one of your turbos to my 2
stroke....how much are they?
Kuba Fly: Where can i buy your shizzz!!!
Daniel Gomez: Can you ad a Module to control the speed from tach
Jose Matteo: What a great and well thought out video...much luck...
Juliso35: Which one would be the most suitable to assemble an auxiliary cooling
system for the motor compartment. My car already have a stock turbo!!.I
just want to lower the indoor temperature a bit in certain situations of
high heat. I'd think that these might work best for this!!.
Blue Rebublic: The scam is basically just a fan powered cold air intake. There is no
benefit to having one unless you want to be able to tell your friends that
you have a supercharger in your car, but the truth is you only paid $20 USD
for it. You might as well have a leaf blower as an intake.
Josh Bridger: What motor are you using on your turbo?
Desean Cole: i like that info that you gave out my girl wanted to buy that electric
Christopher Pinterich: I imagine the turbo would need to be hooked up to a 2hp electric motor
before it generated enough boost to make it worthwhile. 38k rpm is quite
low for a turbo, so is 2-3psi. Maybe 2hp, with proper gearing, could
achieve 5-9psi... idk... I wish you luck with this and would love to see a
darren brisson: hi there is 3 pounds of boost all your going to get from the unit you have
on the video how much would it cost for one of your electric turbos how
much does it cost for a 18 p.s.i of boost turbo.
