Re: turbo theories Part ???

     Regarding methods of maintaining boost between shifts, I recently came 
   wings AND A COMPRESSED-AIR SYSTEM to prevent turbo impellor stall during 
   gear shifts."

A few months back, Turbo and HiTech had a teaser on another approach --
mount a small high-speed electric motor onto the turbo . . .

And of course the next step is obvious - use a slightly bigger motor and
you'll have boost even at idle.

Finally, use a big honkin' motor and you can do away with the turbine
altogether! (pity the poor ole alternator...)
