Read the patent. Something's not adding up for me. Yes, the compression ratio is higher, but now you've introduced a throttle in the inlet track, which is going to result in higher turbine inlet pressures, create pumping loss, which is in the direction of reducing overall thermal efficiency. How this would balance out, I'm not sure. At part throttle, I don't see this system beating a non-turbo engine in efficiency, because they already run 10 or 11 to 1 compression ratios, and are not particularly knock limited. The claim about not needing a catalytic converter seems total bogus to me.

"Nobody" on the board built four in the last couple years big HP and idle like an outboard.

Be open minded and "eyed" regarding twin turbo's for the future with Chief Engines.....You will all see very soon something that has never been done successfully before. And...a Fountain may just be involved !!

Comming soon to a race site near you !!
