    I've asked Garret for some info on one of their turbo and Procharger about their supercharger F1, because as an engineer I want to know what specs for an electric motor would be needed to turn a turbo or supercharger as the same rate as the exhaust/belt would turn it. I would think something would have to look like a Procharger supercharger with gearing to turn it at the correct rate and have the correct amount of Tq to spin it. I’m interested in seeing if an electric motor could do it and what amps and voltage would be needed. I know I could build a system like this for a bench dyno but to fit a system like this in a car might be the challenge. But the concept is very interesting. I would think with a full electric system a controller would change the boost by rmp and mph. I have a few AC 220V, 60Hz Single Phase Brake Motor I know would spin that supercharger at the right speed with 290 ft-lbs of torque, just need to get the gearing right so that the motor can just spin the supercharger at the correct rate. The electrical system is going to need an upgrade, lol.

    I guess if someone wanted to get crazy with it they could use a power inverter.

    LOL, but by the time you got all that stuff stuffed somewhere in the car it would be one big heavy mess..
