I have scoured ebay and stumbled across these, all from the same bloke.
http://cgi.ebay.com.au/Polished-Alloy-S ... dZViewItem

Note the direct drive of the impellor shaft....

Make as many as you want!

At $1200 they don't look like good news at all, At least with a vortech you get oil lines and the pulley geared of the impellor shaft, can just imagine the shaft bearing (if it has one) being chewed out in no time.

On one view it looks as if its a mould of a garret turbo, on another a vortech?

Any thoughts?

LOL, first ones a turbo with the exhaust housing removed and a pulley in its place.
Theres a reason all the other centrifigual blowers have a gearbox on them ;)
How fast does an engine spin.
How fast does the compressor on a turbo spin.
Direct drive? Not gonna work....

Supercharger Mould,

Mould to pour alloy superchrager housings and can supply up to 1000 blades "compressors" a month to match the alloy supercharger housings. Mould comes in two parts inner mould, and outter mould. Reason for sale is that i have a large contract with another supercharger mould i contain. The dimensions are_26_cm square, a very small but pourfull housing capable of 30 PSI+. Mould is of wood construction. I have blades worth $1100 including tax and GST each, can supply for $440 each including tax and GST. The blade can produce 29PSI max at 50,000 RPM.


Can anyone see a problem with this statement?
To pour moulten alloy into a wooden mould is just shear stupid, 650+c of moulten alloy for 5 mins in a wooden mould = fire.
The moulds he has for sale are used for making a plastic / resien prototype, you have to get it copied to a billet of steel for each section close to twice the thickness of the mould at a cost of around 10k each.
I spent 5 years working in a Engineering Alloy die casting work shop.

Wonder if you mated the turblower to a large ratio overdrive gearbox and drove the gearbox off the crank. Could work, could not work, who wants to try?

He got me at 'pourful' and '50,000 RPM'. Should go good with my intake mod chip. :)

I would've, but thought it easier and cheaper to just go and buy a vortech, so i did.
