Neohydro Turbo Technology 775 HP, 40/32 MPG Corvette

I'm starting to get into investing, and came across a very interesting company. They claim to have a system that greatly increases both the cars power and efficiency. (the stock ticker is NHYT).

There is also a 500 HP, 32/28 MPG Silverado.

They also claim to be working with General Motors so the system includes a 5 year, 100,000 mile powertrain warranty. I don't know how much the system costs, however.

The website is http://www.neohydrotechnology.com, it's pretty interesting, take a look.

I have no idea how it works, but I will shoot them an email letting them know about Camaro5. I'm sure there would be a lot of interest here, if it turns out to be true... Seems like a small startup but with a great product and huge potential.

Having researched the product, this appears to be very similar to the STS remote-mounted setup. This appears to be bundled with a thorough tune oriented more toward reliability than horsepower. Rather than focussing on track performance, the information on this site seems to point toward the idea of tuning for durability instead of the breakneck performance standards most people place on their cars. It is no surprise that such a tune would warrant a long-term warranty. Further evidence to this point is the point made in the FAQ about sound. The sound is not a priority because that does not contribute to the efficient performance of the brand which will only upset those who want everyone to know they have a turbo rather than those who care only about the function. The system is clearly favoring function over form, but even the form contributes the function by placing remote turbos rather than packing all of the heat in one place and adding balance to the car by choosing the rear of the car as the place of choice as opposed to mounting turbos at the front of the car. The science is very sound, supported by a clear explanation that more mass does not mean more air, and more air means more boost. More heat potentially means failure, as the company correctly explains. Finally, the physics explanation concludes by arguing that the alternatives, namely superchargers, will produce great peak numbers but will lack the broader performance benefit of these remote-mounted turbochargers.

In all, Neohydro Technologies has a very good product. I would like to learn more about maintaining my GM warranty and whether this warranty has the same terms as that warranty or what differences might exist between these warranties.

I emailed them and received a quick response. They are currently in the process of engineering the system for the Camaro, and have two orders already. They will post the Dyno and Fuel economy results on Camaro5 once they are ready.

I look forward to seeing their numbers and participation here on the world's largest Camaro enthusiast site.

I should add that I am only buying parts for my Camaro from Camaro5 members.

I would like to add that NHT is a Canadian based company, out of Calgary, Alberta!

I actually seen this a few months ago but didn't even think to post it on here!

Yeah I'll believe this when I see it with my own eyes. Too good to be true.

If anyone had figured out how to make a 500/hp 32/mpg Silverado, don't you think GM would be on it like crackheads to get it to market.. like tomorrow? I'm sure they've already looked into technology like this and weighed the benefits...

To answer how a hybrid gets better mpg city:

They get better MPG because of how the hybrid technology works. Being a hybrid, it has 2 motors. The electirc motor is mostly used in the city and the idle of the gas motor recharges it. At low speed, it basically only uses the electric motor to run. But with a corvette and so much power, if you were constantly launching hard I doubt you would get so much fuel economy because the gas motor would kick in to increase the power required for fast acceleration. Plus their system mentions using a turbo which increases power and efficiency.

But a camaro with 40+ mpg would be sweet. But who has that kind of cash to drop after spending 35k+ on a car? I don't even have that...

They are... well, as much as can be while recovering a company from restructuring. Many fingers and only one head young one...

Kind of sounds like a scam to me...I'll wait for the dyno #s but this just sounds too good to be true.

yeah Id have to agree, for the people that understand how engines, and FI work they don't really explain how their system can achieve its claims. Ill be looking for something in black and white from a 3rd party.

Interesting as well. I did some research from there docs on the website. I was looking into buying there $0.16 stock but found this comment in the docs:

Readers should note that the patented STS turbo devices are not manufactured by the Company. The units are
purchased directly from Genes Vettes of Lynden, Washington and then are combined with the proprietary remote
tuning software and together the GIHS is assembled. Currently all testing and retrofitting of any vehicles of the
GIHS are been done by Gene Vettes, the Licensor of the technology. However, there are future plans to establish an
upfitting facility in Calgary, Alberta for the installation of the GIHS in new fleet vehicles as well as individual new
consumer vehicles.
The vehicles will be tuned remotely over the internet by the licensors head office over the internet
