Default Surbo

Has anyone tried using this? I'm using a single version and its performance is mad! I'm going to install another one in a few months time. For those who are not going to put in a lot of money for turbochargers/superchargers this little thing helps heaps!

Just wanna check with you all, I'm very happy with this but the theory part is still a bit err.. blur to me. Anyone has seen it or use it can explain it?

Uhh bro, you might wanna dyno the car before and after it is installed; the results will be surprising.:dead:

Try check out www.surbo.net Some of the testimonials are pure nonsense. I was very skeptical when it came out 1 - 2years back. Recently I tried it out in my car and its like wow!.. Some of you physic guys can check out the diagrams and theories behind it, maybe you can make more sense out of it then me.

On the website, they have something like a Kancil (in Malaysia, otherwise known as Daihatsu leftover technology, or Mira) 850cc beating a Satria GTI 1.8 which is a mean machine stock already. But apart from all that nonsense, I can go to redline with half throttle and my top speed increased and reachable easily 200km/h from 180km/h. Sorry if I sound like a salesmen but this thing is like RM160 for so much power on a standard car. Its so exciting driving with the surbo.

I postponed my purchase for something that costs so little for over a year because of doubts. And your next question no! , i'm in no way related to the sales or the surbo thing. Just a very satisfied and excited customer. They have dealership in Australia and UK i think, maybe you guys can check it out and let me know. Maybe you can let me know of any improvements or the bad side of this product.

cheers

Mechanix,
Sorry for the double post. This is a newbie forum. Yeah.. I wanna dyno the car later, after I fix up everything. Car is a bit of a dud now. BTW anyways I was in australia for 4 years for high school, (canberra). Nice place, some nice cars and bikes too.

later

I can't find any hard facts on what exactly it is and what it does, as well as installation, the installation page isn't too informative for me anyhow, would someone please explain?
edit: I read some of the FAQ and the bigger the wheel size from stock, the worst it is, many people have 16's and 17's too...
Quote:
1. One Malaysian Proton Saga 1.5's top speed dropped to 160kph, from its best of 190kph, just because the overall wheel diameter was made bigger by 2% (16 inch 205/45 tyres).
