Turbos are not free power, as some will claim. A turbo is a turbine-driven supercharger and to drive something requires horsepower. The turbine needs velocity, volume, heat and pressure to operate.
So what value is exhaust to my car ?? My exhaust powers my Turbo ....

IMO A Turbo is Free Power, Where as a Supercharger (Belt driven is not)

I just figured it all out, electricity is free energy. That makes this a left supercharger.

If i want to go fast i put underglows on and put a bunch of fireball stickers on the doors, that gives me 500hp each. Then i put so many gauges inside that i cant find the radio. 25'* (chrome), body kit, aluminum spoiler wing, and 50gallons of NO2 ... and a hula lady

Now now, let'* not go stirring the pot. They pooped in it enough with their own generous writeup.

No, I agreed with the comment, therefore "I resemble that remark". If I resented it I would have just kept quiet. Dan has a very large hammer.

I think those superchargers might be somewhat useful in a vehicle that produces a ton of electricity already. However when you put a supercharger on a prius it will still be slow, just faster at being slow.
