For those not confused enough, there is another configuration out there, where the turbocharger is driven through a gear set at low loads, and then is powered by exhaust gasses under high loads. This gives you boost at low engine speeds/loads but avoids the high drag of a supercharger at higher engine speeds and loads. These are typically used in locomotives, ships, and standby power.

Check it out here:

and here:

It is an awesome design, and is the closest thing to a belt driven turbocharger I could find. Although really when it is driven by the crank it is a supercharger, and when that drive system is disengaged it is a turbocharger.

Yes a "luxury sedan" that sounds like every Camaro owner (at least here on Camaro5) would want their beast to sound like.

Well...then take that engine out of there, no "luxury" sedan should sink you into your Recaro seats with 556 screaming horses. Besides...sounding that good is a luxury afforded to few....BMW can only try....

K.. thanks for the info

rayhawk, my posts may have seemed rude, especially to someone that don't know me... No offense intended.

I like the LS9 system with the stashed intercoolers.

Exhaust driven turbos are pretty much bullet-proof anymore, but the under hood heat is a turn-off for me.

I'm surprised smack hasn't come in here with an ar15 and cleared out all this supercharged 6 talk

...As far as the turbo-super-roots-centrifuge-screw... Call me a lost cause LOL

Gonna start calling it this...
centrifugal fluid pump (air is a fluid)


..... Wait.... Does that make a water pump a .... nevermind

No offense taken by me, that is for sure. I just thought some other gearheads would like that engine and since the topic came up about ways to drive a centrifugal compressor, I decided to post the info.

There has been no more confirmation of no Z28 than there has been of Z28.

There, I have denied your claim.

Well, I have my intake and exhaust now, so I can hold off on buying anything else for awhile in the hopes that the Z gets announced.

My 'Modding' fund has turned into the 'Z downpayment' fund.
