I don't see how an electric driven supercharger can spin anywhere near 50,000-60,000 rpms like turbos or belt-driven superchargers

thats what idont get.a real super charger is driven by your motor.no way those little tiny electric motors can make 80ponys.

The main problem would be something would have to controll the amount of cfm. Now electric motor can move air but 70 hp I don't know about that

SCAM! Don't fall for it.

I read in one of the car mags that it managed a little over 1psi on a small block. They were testing backyard theories, and I believe it didn't make near that much hp.

Read this! Excellent explanation of those kinds of turbos/superchargers. He also talks about a cool drag racing electric supercharger that actually works and products boost with tons of powerful batteries.

Btw: complete scam. Really, they give no rise in pressure and are basically just an obstruction full of parts to fly into the engine.

Re: electric supercharger

Electric motors are more amazing than most people realize. Some are more than able to put out enough air to work as a super charger with the right blades at the right pitch and angle. However, most of the ones (like you posted) you see on the net and on infomercials are simply just someone trying to make money off of suckers. And the car world is an excellent place for them to do so.

They are amazing, but you have to realize how much HP it would take for one of them to move enough air to make a difference.
There is no way any normal vehicle and 12 volt battery system can provide enough power to make it even remotely feasible.

Now with a second battery and a juiced up charging system you might, just might mind you, get one to work on a lawnmower engine.

I totally agree with you. I didn't mean to imply it would be feasible to use a system like this in an auto. I was just talking about the possibilities of an electric motor in general

And if I am not mistaken the fan was running backwards, essentially suck air out of the engine. People will buy anything I guess.

Yeah, but I don't know if I could have done that to a perfectly good vette, or any good muscle car. Well maybe a viper lol.

Yeah, I agree. But they are a magazine and have a pretty much unlimited budget to do what they want.
