    I find it funny because yes it's a rip off, but if you actually took the time to design a system it would work. I've thought about it myself but to actually get an electric blower capable of producing a positive pressure ia almost as expensive as a turbo itself.

    I was looking into brushless cobalt magnet DC motors, but I don't think they are capable of producing enough power unless they are run through a transmission. At that point it just isn't worth it.

    i don't know about an electric powered turbo but there's an article in SCC about a turbo's turbine being driven by hydraulic fluid....... it's manufactured by Garrett ... check out the June 2003 issue

    okay,
    go to your local home and garden store
    buy a nice Homelite air blower
    relocate your battery and zip-tie the blower in its spot
    pull the cord to start the blower
    some how ghetto-rig the two throttles together
    have fun!
