What's going on in #13? At first I though she(am I right?) was using the supercharger to pump the Turbo, but then.. oh wait, what?!
Maybe there's a plenum box under the SC that hasn't been routed to the throttle body yet?
So many questions, need more pics
Cool post btw!
I think they are useing the turbo to pump into the intake of the supercharge
they have the super charger routed into the intake of the turbo and the turbo outlet piped to the intake of the motor. but I understand what you're saying, something is missing, what is the super charger mounted to, to produce pressure?
either way it's a huge waste of power. unless the compression of the motor was changed drastically they would never use the full potential of such a set up.
No doubt, I think I've seen a setup where they're trying to run a turbo back into the SC, but why? Dual charged e-penor? I can't picture this running without the SC exploding! Dayam!
Pushing turbos through superchargers happens quite a bit and works. The SC providing boost until the snails spool up. Check out V&P Racing's latest creation on Youtube. 2011 CTS-V, twin turbos through the factory supercharger, 731rwhp. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LKeKgdpHEYQ
In my Don Garlits Museum pics posted here on The Throttle, you'll even find a pic of twin snails pushing through a 1471.
I will say however, that pic #13 does look like a hot mess.
it's been done for many years specially on desiel motors but like I said above, huge waste of potential power on that motor.
Because of this post, i shall visit theThrottle more often! #9 #27

Nice post. I am consistently increasing my time at theThrottle due to your good work and dedication to automotive awesomeness.
#24 lucky ass..skyline and evo
I will take all four in #10 for a test drive
Hipsters love to drive Pinto Hatchbacks, their not mainstream Japperz.
#18 and #27. The two sexiest things I've seen all day
Kudos on posting the ’75 pinto cruisin wagon….. I’m a pinto freak and about pissed myself when I saw it….
#23 – Steam Punk bike? Everything looks neat but that seat! OUCH!
#19 I fucking hate Australia and am embarrassed to be a part of this cluster fuck of a country
Perfect vehicle for the Zompoc.
#15# my endless dream..
I learned how to drive on a T/A like in post #1. I have to say I don't know how you could get it to hook up well enough to do a wheel stand, but that picture is bad ass!
