  3. Wow! What's that gonna make? 0.1 bar at most?
    Interesting idea, heating the intake not cooling?

    But it's freeeee pooooweeeeeer!!
     
  5. The World's least efficient Supercharger, be interesting to know EXACTLY how much more (if any) power it made.
     
  6. I use exactly the same set up in my bus, but I run a hose pipe to the fridge as an intercooler....I'm getting around 0.000001 bar of boost if I pre-stock it with frozen Linda McCartney sausages

    it makes it look faster and solves the blanking off issues of running j tubes so win win
     
  8. tbh there's method in the madness, but I can't see how there'd be enough compression for it to be effective, unless the little unit sticking out of the side is some kind of mini compressor.....looks like the type you get with airbrushes....
    who am i to knock it....looks like s/he had fun trying:D

  10. That looks like a dump valve which is a "little' optimistic to say the least, even if it were a compressor it would be limited by whatever pressure the VW fan makes and in fact would only serve to reduce the cooling efficiency.
    Nice tidy install though. :)

  12. as you said....it would be really interesting to see some stats....
     
  13. I made a ram pipe and plenum for my 1380 mini running on twin SUs.....don't know if it worked, but it sounded nice....:D

  17. Indeed. It reminded me, but I've read lots of similar threads over the years. I thought we should join in on TLB as we're far busier than VZi. And it's a fun idea that gets your mind boggling a bit.
     
  18. like those cheap electric ebay supercharger fans ?
     
  19. It was on The Samba years ago with a couple of guys claiming to have done it with a VERY mild improvement.
    Much like the ramair effect used on modern Superbikes, 2% being the approx number with little effect below 80 mph.
    I have four of those, one for each cylinder and my Bus does 140mph on The Witney py-pass. (some or all of this may be a lie) ;)
