Hi

Hi.
It is strange how I stumbled upon this site. I started by googling tesla turbine motors in my novice and floundering quest to find high rpm devices that might be able to directly power a centrifugal turbo charger.* Eventually, after some hours of branching off to other subjects, I got arrived here.
I am probably not a typical ecomodder. I am interested in efficiency gains and saving money, but the sound of an enormous fuel sucking V8 engine is music to my ears . I am interested in neck snapping acceleration, but not all out speed. However I am able to enjoy neither with my 2000 Corolla. I am interested in learning from this community, and contributing when possible.
I believe that humans are capable of producing far more efficient cars in the future, but I want to know about it now! I have aspirations of creating a quick hybrid out of a junk prius or insight.
If you read some or all of this, thanks.

*Why would I want to do this? Trying to find a way to power a centrifugal compressor independently of the engine. Very similar to the Thomas Knight electric air compressor that produces smaller PSI for a small amount of time.
Here is his site, complete with his own spin on the subject: http://www.boosthead.com/faq.php

I'm relatively around that area. I'd rather not say much more than that though. Thanks for the warm welcome CRX's are awesome!

I'll stalk you, no worries,

I'm thinking of organizing a local meet for the area this summer, so keep that in mind,
