But for that matter I am not talking about a complete engine replacement, 80 ft lbs of torque is a LOT if it's just a booster.
I was talking about that one small motor you linked.
I asked what motors you think would be good for doing a hydraulic hybrid, you linked that little motor. I don't think its big enough.
1984 chevy suburban, custom made 6.5L diesel turbocharged with a Garrett T76 and Holset HE351VE, 22:1 compression 13psi of intercooled boost.
1989 firebird mostly stock. Aside from the 6-speed manual trans, corvette gen 5 front brakes, 1LE drive shaft, 4th Gen disc brake fbody rear end.
2011 leaf SL, white, portable 240v CHAdeMO, trailer hitch, new batt as of 2014.
