    Came across this; Electric Supercharger Boosts Gasoline Engines To Diesel Efficiency - Green Car Reports Controlled Power Technologies... VTES There has been a lot of discussion about electric supercharging but this one might work.
  2. Tuning & Upgrades
    Could you fit a Eaton M45 supercharger from a mini copper S on a alfa romeo 2.5 V6 ? I know they fit on a 2liter Twinspark.
  3. Tuning & Upgrades
    Now this is STRICTLY THEORETICAL since I've had advice before that a 2.2 and a charger probably won't mix well. But I am interested out of principle (and maybe for next vehicle purchase), what's better to upgrade a NA engine with, a super charger or a turbo charger? Categories are: 1) Driving...
  4. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hello all, I have just managed to pick-up a nearly new rotrex c30-94 charger and am now looking to have it installed onto my 1999 V6 Gtv. I have most recently had a quote of £3000 ready to roll, any ideas on a cheaper price or does that seem realistic including remap, labour, injectors...

    After hearing my father's Fiat Argenta Diesel with a broken exhaust many years ago, I'm usually more annoyed than impressed by loud engine sounds. But I loved that sound of the Vauxhall Bathurst supercharger on last Top Gear! :wow: That made me think - does anyone here have the Autodelta...

  7. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Having just had my 57 plate GT, can anyone tell me about the engine. Having never owned a diesel before its all a bit new to me. When I bought it I was told it had a low pressure turbo, but then I read it had a superchager (which I think is a belt driven turbo) Am I right in thinking that a...
  8. Tuning & Upgrades
    Hi Does anyone know how to plumb in an electronic boost gauge into a Rotrex supercharger? I am having the gauge fitted today (the electrical side of things) which will just leave the plumbing in of the sensor. I read somewhere that on a supercharger there are certain parts/sides which are...

    Any one got any knowledge or an opinion on the fitting one of these the a 50,000 mile 2.0 gtv ? Force Flow X4 Brushless Electronic Supercharger
  10. Tuning & Upgrades
    take a look at this... ForceFlowX4 now normally i would look at something like this and think "gobsh1te", but this one has a demo video showing comparisons between this and the other ebay-found electric superchargers.. the video shows evidence of current draw, and air/wind power on exiting...

  12. Tuning & Upgrades
    Was surfing for info about superchargers and found this far too unbelievably good to be true: Electric Superchargers This is an American company that claims to make a supercharger for $99 that you can fit yourself and will give you 'guaranteed up to 30% power increase' (!!!) This is of course a...

  14. Tuning & Upgrades

  16. Tuning & Upgrades
    just picked my car up from autodelta today,had the evo version with 340 bhp,drove it 300 + miles back and it used less petrol coming back than it did going brill,much smoother to drive now aswell,cant wait to find some M3 s to see just what its like.
  17. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Just been looking at the Autodelta website, particularly the supercharged 3.0 V6 engine. It'd be interested to hear from anybody who has a supercharger fitted...... How much does it cost? What power increase does it give? Can this be fitted to an existing engine?
  18. Tuning & Upgrades
    i am looking to get a supercharger for my 147 gta! i looked at the autodelta one but i tink that it comes with engine as well! i was wondering if anywere else sells a supercharger on its own!
  19. Tuning & Upgrades
    Ok everyone I was trying a cheapish option to give more power to my 2.5 v6 but I am just going to go all out. I want a European car for the drags so focusing on power. I want to fit in the 3.8 engine blocks and also a throttle body kit by AH Motorsports. after this I either want to put a...
