that furthers my example, they are giving the money to people that do not know what a turbo does.

you find someone to let us build them a set of turbo engines and we will give them more power then any marine engine builder offers, and give them a 200 hour warranty with it.

So what you're saying is that in spite of the millions of dollars and tens of thousands of engineering and development hours spent by Brunswick's Mercury HP division,mega-millionaire Tom Gentry, Gale Banks and not to mention the scores of others just since WW II, you know something they weren't able to recognize?

Turbocharging is what you might call a mature science. The ancillary pieces, from ceramics, to coatings to exotic materials and all the associated tweaks and techniques have been around for a LONG time.

yeah that is pretty much what I'm saying.

I have ran my turbo engines for 5 years at 1800 hp and they have the same cranks, rods, pistons, valves, blocks, ect. times 2. that they were built with. only did normal maintenance oil changes and valve springs, lifters, gaskets ect.

just to give you an example, I build custom speakers, and speakers have been around for over a hundred years, and there are lots of companies like sony and jvc ect that have billions of dollars that cannot even come close to what I have done with speakers.


it is pretty easy to look at a banks kit or gentry kit and see what they did wrong. just because they had money does not mean they knew what they were doing.

We are willing to build them and stand behind them like I said.

we are not claiming to build a turbo at all, we just know how to apply a turbo to a marine environment at high hp correctly.

Turbo's kick A$$.
Worked for Schwitzer for 10 some years in advance turbo design. Perty much fathered the first successful turbine end variable geometry turbo. Also designed the safest and most sofisticated stationary test and burst test equipment.

In fact the blower is putting out more boost than your instruments are telling ya.
FACT!!!!!!!!!!!You have to have a load on the engine to make any significant boost on a roots blower.

Rev a roots blower engine slowly up to 5000rpms in neutral and see how much boost you make. Very little, if any.

Now put it in gear and mash the throttle. You'll be very near max boost by 2000rpms and stay there all the way to max rpm.

Turbos are superior to any other forced induction engine period.

What is it that so many have missed in turbo application that you were able to discover & apply to your setups.
