Low end torque boost

This started in a different thread and went way off topic, I am sure a few of you know which one...

Mazda has a PROTOTYPE eletric ASSIST for the TURBO that's already installed on the car in question.

ALL it does is spool the turbo earlier so that it can deliver power sooner. The actual POWER is still delivered by normal turbo physics. Gas spins turbine sucks air in and forces it down.

No magic, just starts the turbine sooner. Wouldn't make a damned bit of difference without the exhaust gases pushing the turbine.

Correct... not magic, its called turbo matching. and it goes inline with the intake...
also.. Mazda are not the first ones to do this. Which proves again that yes it does work for what its expected to do, increase low end torque... not to replace a turbo.
An exhaust driven turbo s great, but your acceleration is just the same up to the point where the turbo kicks in.

And just to clearify cause I do not think anyone gets it yet. I do plan on trying this... and its not to equal what an exhaust driven turbo can do... we do not want to race everything in site, just make the car more divable during low speed accel. I hate having to floor it just to get decent accel from a stop. ... . . . I think I am just goinfg to start a new thread..

I'm sorry but you do not understand a thing about engineering or physics. I have a computer fan you can add to your car to produce more horsepower. First off I think you should post some links to credable sites with this information about a pre-charger, I've heard of it before but not electric.

Alrighty... however the site that I found before it not up .. but good o'l google has it cached..

http://64.233.179.104/search?q=cache...ching%22&hl=en


Now I know this is for turbo matching to increase the low end torque and eliminate the turbo lag, but if you used it on its own then you still increase the lowend torque...

Look at this then, http://www.sigmaautomotive.com/elect...trocharger.php
That is a cool idea.

now that says it replaces the alternator, so does it take over the same job as the alternator as well as create the low end added power?
