[DML] Re: Turbocharger availability



Unfortunatly it is not that simple to calculate air requirements. The
bottom line though is YES, you CAN use an electric blower to create
boost. In fact many rice burners are doing it. A big advantage is you
can get boost at low RPM's so you can raise the torque curve at low
speeds. You can't do that with a turbo! The big disadvantage is that
you can only get around 4# of boost. More than that and the motor
powering the blower gets way too big. It is also a fairly easy
install, you don't have to mess with the exhaust or pulleys. And no
parasitic load on the motor!
