That looks like a turbo rather than a supercharger....it even says turbonetics on the side...maybe I am missing something?
3. Some believe turbo's are free horsepower, and don’t draw power from the engine and that exhaust is free power. Not quite true. Think of your engine as a big air pump. The easier exhaust flows from the engine the cooler it runs and less restriction on the engine. The pistons pump the expelled and burnt air charge out of the engine. If the piston has to push the air out of the exhaust and thus push an impeller on a turbo then it draws energy to push this restricted exhaust out. It draws power off the crank for the piston to push the exhaust out into a restricted flow.
If you don’t believe me then put a restriction plug in your exhaust and see what it does to engine horse power and engine temps.
Build it and they will come.ATVonics PowerSports said:Here's a question for the forum: do you think theirs a need and a market to super charge that 1000 hemi motor????????????
