Nice find for the deeper pockets amongst us.

This reminds me of the old Mad Max Stuffers. . .

1. Compressor electric controlled by the throttle position seneor.
2. Sharp engine reponse at any RPM range.
3. Impove fuel mileage by introducing the compressor electric clutch.
4. Complete bolt on kit.
5. Durable even under heavy load driving condition.

That's the websites bad spelling not mine, but it implies it has a clutch cut out on the compressor. So how then does air get to the engine? :disappoin

I would love to supercharge my 1MZ, but not when the s/c itself is worth more than my car.

IMO, only way to supply the engine compressor off, is to go around it. The cut out seems lame.


Again, go watch the old Mad Max in his Aussie 351C powered Ford. The S/C was gutted by the way! lol It had a clutch on it. . .

This would work fine as long as it had a bypass valve either electic or vacume actuated and an adiquit sized and routed tube witch i dont see in the pic or it could be a free spin system but the rotor pick looks like a roots style system.

On a side note, The Mad Max system looked like a GMC 6-71 roots style blower witch is not a free spin system and would not run without a bypass system, Almost impossible at the time seeing as the carberators were sitting about a 1/2 in off the intake for the rotors and would have required a ton of mods done internaly to the compresor housing including shortening the roters and moving the rear bearing case, I called BS on that system when the movie came out but never really looked into it.

Man, haven't seen that thing in years. Like stated before me, it's for the VVTi 1MZs, costs an arm and a leg, is likely discontinued by now, and 1 kit is known to exist Stateside (although I don't know if dude ever got it to work on his Avalon).
