Electric Turbo / Electric Supercharger / Forced Induction System: Should I Install?
My friend sent me an electric turbo / electric Supercharger. It appears to be a Bilge Pump, not something I would install in my car. But based on the rated CFM it might actually work. What do you think? Should I install it? Vote in the comments.
Best Upgrade For Your Car, Truck Or SUV: Tires and Rims
Probably the easiest, most fun, and most visible performance upgrades for
your car truck or suv is tires and rims. More grip means better handling
and faster acceleration.
Plus if you do the upgrade when you need tires anyway, the upgrade doesn't
cost very much.

MINI Cooper Hot Side Boost Tube
This is a quick easy, reasonably cheap upgrade that could be done with only
a flat head screw driver. Making your daily driver more fun with better
fuel economy and faster 0 to 60.
The MPG gains won't be huge, but if your car breathes better it goes faster and gets more miles to the
About the Product:
In many cases MINI takes steps to help hide the true soul of a turbo. The Boost tubing is no exception. MINI engineers
attempted to remove some turbo and Boost noise by placing of all things a
muffler in the Boost tubing. In the
same fashion as an Exhaust muffler is
restrictive to performance, so is this! ALTA product designers created a
simple, attractive way to remove the this muffler and increase performance.
The ALTA turbo Hot Side Boost Tube replaces the restrictive plastic
and rubber OEM piece with a 5-ply silicone, fiber reinforced tube. With a
mirror smooth interior surface, larger diameter and tapered transitions,
you get a dramatic decrease in restriction and turbulence.
By removing the muffler you get a nice mellow tone to the turbo and a leap forward in power. The silicone
hose is restriction free with its smooth surfaces and larger internal
With the features listed above you get much better Boost response and more horsepower! According to
Alta's Dyno Charts you
get 10 WHP and10 Ft-Lbs Torque.
What Is An Intercooler And How Does It Work?
I am going to start offering Intercoolers on Amazon. I have decided
this. Nice Shiny Intercoolers, in the size and shape
that fit my car. This is the first one. An Intercooler cools the pressurized air
that is passing through your forced induction device. This could be a Supercharger or a turbocharger it doesn't matter, the thing is that
you want one made of a good conductor of heat. Aluminum is an excellent
choice. Silver would be better, Gold would be best. I can't afford a solid
gold Intercooler, and if I
could I wouldn't put it on my car for fear it would be stolen, so I chose

How to Rebuild a Turbo - Part 1 of 2
Rebuilding a td05h 16g turbo. This
process can be applied to many journal bearing turbochargers. :) It definitely comes in handy to
know how to do this when you are in this type of hobby.
4/25/12: Small explanation on the balancing of the rotating assembly since
I get so many comments regarding it. This particular turbocharger, td05h, has it's rotating assembly
components balanced separately. This means each individual part (compressor
wheel, turbine wheel/shaft) gets balanced separately. This allows for easy
interchangeability of parts in case they need replacing. This is why I am
able to install a td05 20g wheel on this turbo without having to balance the entire
rotating assembly. THIS IS NOT THE CASE FOR ALL turboS OUT THERE. You need to research whether
your specific turbo (if it's not td05h)
was balanced as an assembly or "component balanced" like I explained above.
I hope this information helps. Good luck in your projects. Stay Boostin'

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)
