Wow! That is great! I've been wondering for a long time if anyone even made something like this. Do they only make one size? Are there different A/R ratios available? Intercoolers? Man, there sure is a big difference in the Jap/China prices. Thanks for posting! ;D
I'd be amazed if the electric "turbo" did anything ohter than break a fan blade off and send in into the engine. I just can't trust anything that claims to spin at 55,000RPM, is made of plastic, and only costs $30.
The real turbo would probably be worth the trouble on the right engine, because I think it would actually work to some degree. Not so sure it would be good for a 50cc, but larger displacement scoots. Once again, hard to tell when they give you no sort of size info.
I know all the others I've seen had turned out to be too big, but I was hoping this was different. Could still work to some degree, but like other turbos out there it would prob need a stout 150cc+ GY6 based motor to do much. Something similar was used on a 110cc midbike and they made all of 3psi. A 110cc with a 114cc BBK would go faster than it would.
Yeah. It's not something for anyone without a bit of knowledge and a wad of bills. Even as much as I love to mod stuff, I think before I spent the dough on a turbocharged, nitrous fed, fuel injected, big displacement, GY6 scooter I would just buy a sportbike.
Here's the turbo 110cc X12 I mentioned. They were building and posting about this years ago when I frequented pocketbikeplanet. They said they were going to build the 110cc to at least 114cc and then they said they were going to get a 124cc engine to try out. They never did either. Would have been interesting to see. It does look quick, but I assure you a 114cc X12 would do anything it does and it's a cheaper, straight-forward, install.
