Increasing engine horse power and rpm.
Adding torque over an extended rpm range.
Improving fuel economy of engines.
Improving throttle response, reaction time of automatic gearboxes, acceleration and top speed.
Reducing turbo lag in petrol turbo or diesel turbo engines.
Increasing power in engines of hybrid vehicles and momentum, which means they can charge faster during acceleration, and harder during engine braking.
Reducing black smoke from diesel or turbodiesel vehicles. The recent investigations into NOx emissions of certain European car manufacturers show that their diesel technology is below expectations, and we are willing to share our experience in this area. The Surbo audibly reduces engine knock, indicating that engine temperature drops with Surbo. As NOx production increases with temperature, the Surbo has a good chance of reducing NOx.
Reducing the carbon output of engines. Chemically speaking, more CO2 is produced the more the fuel is input, because the carbon component can come only from the hydrocarbons in the fuel. With the Surbo, which brings the engine to its rpm limit with just 1/2 accelerator input (and hence fuel pressure), CO2 was significantly reduced. See this page.
Enabling engines to be downsized yet maintaining power and torque output. A smaller engine reduces carbon output and improves handling due to less weight in the front of the vehicle. For diesel engine components, this could mean less reciprocating mass, which will lead to even higher rpm and better performance.
These we achieve with the Surbo, which increases the air mass flow rate through the engine with just a small pressure on the accelerator. The Surbo has been fitted on many cars, light vans and trucks, and also on motorcycles, a scooter, boat, a racing gokart, and tractors. We believe it is possible to apply the Surbo to lawn mowers, grass cutters, engine-powered generators, hovercraft and even light aircraft with internal combustion engines. We currently have 2 Surbo sizes, one for vehicles up to 2.4 litres, and the other for 2 litres and above. Larger sizes are being tested. If you are interested, please email your requirements and we will tell you if the Surbo can be deployed.
