Supercharged home made Straight Eight by Desperate Dan Vid 2
Built in a shed, it fired up first go. I was hoping it would sound real
lumpy like a drag engine, but it runs too smooth, and it's too quiet even
with unsilenced 9" pipes! The timing was a pain to sort out the Rover
distributor runs backwards, I had to take the heads off to work out the
firing order!!! See the shed it was built in on Vid 1.
Added May 2012: OK, my nails are dirty, maybe because I'm an engineer &
build stuff? Maybe your nails are clean because you can't build eff-all &
just sit behind your computer? C'mon folk, get a life.
Do Electric Superchargers Work?

Do Electric Superchargers Work? That is
a good question and the answer to that question is yes. A real electric Supercharger or electric turbocharger can work. However many people are
confused about how these electric Superchargers can add performance to your
naturally aspirated engine.
No to be confused with those cheap sheet metal inline fans placed inside a
rubber coupler but a real turbocharger
compressor being powered by a brushless motor.

fans for yourself.
Because there are only scams being sold as electric Supercharger the only way to get a real performing
blower is to buid it yourself.
Electric Supercharger challenge
Students in my High Performance class took on the challenge of testing if
an electric Supercharger would increase
performance. You can decide for yourself if they are worth the investment.
We did not test all makes and brands of electric Superchargers so results may vary based on engine
displacement and Volumetric Efficiency (VE)
Electric turbo Honda civic
Electric turbo on my Honda civic
economic 115HP@6500rpm. Answer on some comments:
-it makes more HP,
-it doesn't sound like vacume cleaner, when it is installed you barely can
-and it is not so cheap, i spend around 400$ for all components. The
electric motor costs 100$(85 eur).
