    Curious Electric Supercharger

    Racing Electric Supercharger for all cars (aluminum Fan) FORD FIESTA UNO SAXO | eBay


    I would assume that these dont work at all, but thought i'd ask anyway

    Has someone covered them already?

    Fringe tech?

    the idea can work, but that implementation is ****e.

    I'm sure ford played around with it, using a LARGE electric motor and the front part of a supercharger.

    The current consumption is massive though!

    Google spits out this photo:

    and this:

    http://image.turbomagazine.com/f/885...engine_bay.jpg

    Which gives you an idea of the SIZE the components need to be to actually work!
