New thought on Super charger and turbo setup

Ok guy this is just a far cry consept that i drew up in my head and slightly on paper of running a blower as well as the turbo on the 7.3L. Obviously the blower takes power to make power so the concept would be instead of running it off the fan belt, run it off from its own high speed, high torque electric motor that inturn speeds up through increased voltage when engine rpms go up to increas boost as well as decrease boost when decelrating. In some of the small amount of research i have done, there are electric motors that are capible of turning the high rpm for it. But then of course you get into yes it can go that fast but does it have the torque to spin the blower. So now you are looking at the size of the motor and how compact or big it will be. The ideal size would be about the size of the alt, this inturn means you could remove the alt from its location on top of the engine and bolt it to the location ment for a second alt. Then it also comes down to the power to feed the electric motor, I dont see the 2 12v batteries we currently have in our trucks to be enough so now im lookin at adding additional batteries someplace on the truck, best bet would be creating a sealed battery box under the truck attached to the frame. Still a work in progress so im sure i missed a few things but like i said this is just a consept i thought up for fun to figure out so if it isnt possible thats ok. Feel free to shoot hole in the idea or fill in with your own ideas that might work better.

Hehe. Dude, to run a blower you need about a 150hp electric motor to produce enough power to turn that sucker. Many blowers require even more HP. That size of electric motor is bigger than a 7.3 engine itself.

Good that you thinking outside the box but the most common way to make any difference is Empire diesel has a kit that uses a Pro-charger feeding a turbo. Different style of supercharger though. You can youtube it, they sound awesome.

Hucorey thats what i was afraid of but i have been doing research on some brushless motors that have the hp and torque to lift 150 pounds, and seeing how they are a fairly small motor for waht they are.One the size of the alt would in theory have enough nuts to drive a blower.

And schlutzer the step is from H&S no idea how much the two of them were since they were on the truck when i bought it

you can get some bully steps that look almost identical to those steps.

I know this and thats kinda of what sparked the idea of running it off a motor instead of the engine since the conclusion was that no real benifit was gained having it run off engine power.

You'll never get and electric engine to power it. But there are situations where superchargers are good for feeding a turbo. IMO none of them really apply to an 8000lb truck.
