  • Guys it’s TH-vision 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 😑

  • Doesn't this fundamentally defeat the purpose of a turbo, since a turbo is intended to use otherwise wasted exhaust pressure to turn it into horsepower... Now granted, I can see a huge benefit here... No crazy plumming and no fucking with the exhaust!

  • Use rigid intake tube to get more boost. That duct is made for vac. only, and it's stretching out and you're losing some pressure that way. A second thing, if this was going to be a daily driver, you could make a diverter, with a flap that would open easily with suction, but slam shut with any boost at all, and would connect to the air box / filter. Could be done with a solenoid, too. This would give your loss back and save gas for daily use. Since this is a short boost cycle, it would help even if it were used for racing.. Rigid pipe for sure, though...

  • the case oil breather tube feeding the intel is bleeding off pressure. you can see it leaking at 17:00. its loosing pressure and you shouldnt be feeding boost into your oil breather line.

  • Every other performance mod you could make is more effective in cheaper than this you can get a legitimate turbo kit for $2,500 if not you can get nitrous for 600 bucks this is cool but it's not really cost efficient

  • Dudes, you lost me when you decided to use methanol. Your neighborhood must have a plentiful supply of meth labs? :) 1st pull, the turbo created 5 psi. 2nd pull, 7 psi, but both were brief 3 second bursts. Thereafter, the boost reduced to 3 psi. That's probably a wise safety threshold by the company to prolong engine life. Many customers won't have the slightest idea of the engine's A/F ratio or detonation under boost, another limitation to engine life until things go boom. Looks like a viable product for joy rides and brief street drag races. I pity the engine if run for many boosted 1/4 miles with lean A/F. Should customers purchase a laptop as well to manipulate the injector duty cycle? Got a feeling most customers will merely hang the turbo assembly onto the air cleaner snout and jury rig (maybe) a proper air filter. Probably more convenient to move from car to lawn mower to go-cart.

  • I really thought y'all would have built a bypass with a one-way air valve to route air around the compressor until positive pressure is present in the intake tract. It seems the install you did accomplish was pretty basic. Did it not occur to y'all or was that too much work for those build?

    • Yes but this is sleeper AF , you dont need to add any more weight like (intercooler , blow off, manifold, wastegate, all the piping and you dont have to run an oil line to the crank ) idk man it looks fun , its just like having a infinite nitro bottom.

    • You mean the spinning by hand when it's not on? This is no problem because of the type of bearings we use. Or you mean the fingers nearly sucked in when running? Yes you will loose a part of your finger when coming too close.

    • That is true, although is you want to get technical a Turbocharger is a specific type of Supercharger as it's short for "Turbine Supercharger". Ignoring the semantics in every conventional use of the term you are completely correct

Or maybe they somehow bought all that stuff. But they don't know what they're doing with it. If you can't get more than 13.7 you need to forget about the turbo and get an alternator.

  • No way it's brushless. You could tell by the feel that it's a permanent magnet motor, and, unless there's a speed controller built into the turbo itself, you would have three wires running to the motor.
