Has anyone tried one of those new Comp Turbos that don't use oil? The idea that you can mount it any which way is very appealing, but if they don't work, it doesn't matter.
you mean http://www.aerocharger.com/ ??I ran some turbochargers in the late 90's early 2000's that had a small amount of oil in them but no flowing oil from the engine. They also had no wastegates with a vac/boost controlled variable ex housing. I think they were used in motorcycle/snowmobile stuff back then. I built a twin turbo Escalade using them and it drove nice but had some problems with the variable vanes. I think it was aerocharger or something like that, but my memory is not great......
