Electric turbocharger

I just thought of this today and to my surprise there is already a market out for it. With a few new sensors and tuning couldn't this work? Just attach a big ol turbine onto the intake and call it a day.

The biggest hurdle is the amount of current needed to be able to power a turbine strong enough to generate positive manifold pressure.

I think it's one of those things that works great in theory, but not practically. Looking at what OEMs are doing now, I think if it had any practical application, we'd see it being done.

ahahahhahahhha this again.

It's a great concept if you want to use it for drag racing and can't use a regular supercharger for some reason. f1 just started using this system.

but unless you have enough funds for triple the cost of a regular SC, you're screwed. Big batteries are expensive. And big wires. and high pressure turbines. and they're all heavy.
step one is finding an electric turbine (of any size) that puts out 10psi, at 10,000 liters per minute.

F1's is also a hybrid to keep the regular turbo spooled. I think most people are looking for a centrifugal supercharger or turbocharger replacement, which F1's system is not.

Step 1 buy a new online fuel pump.
Step 2 buy a gas powered leaf blower.
Step 3 convert said leaf blower to a four stroke engine and conect it to your ignition system.
Step 4 buy stainless steal lines to conect the two to your existing fuel system.
Step 5 start up your new super charger.

Don't actually do this and don't buy electric superchargers from eBay.
