Supercharging: Compressor or turbo?


Many car makers deliver their engine with turbo for supercharging nowadays. However, the compressor usage does not need to use the engine’s exhaust gas which is choking the engine’s power and makes less efficient combustion, so it is much toxic and expensive. Although compressors need other driving source, for example electric such as independent electric motor driving or mechanic such as belt or chain driving, but these drivings need less energy as I think because electric motors are more efficient than internal combustion engines.
This problem is almost same old as the carmaking itself, (and its other problems). So it is the time to change this after all(or rather these).

It is a good news that the Mercedes makes – not only – its “flagship”, Mercedes Benz CL 63 AMG, with compressor.

One man compared previously the automotive industry to information technology from the aspect of speed of development. His results could cause frustration to those who were satisfied with their vehicles. However as I used to mention that the problems have been almost the same, unfortunatelly, since decades or more.
Here you can see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Turbo webpage, but I do not like its expressions – not only in this car tool theme – which can cause ambiguities to the people as far as I know. For example the webpage mention water injection to reducing temperature, but as I know it is primarily for growing mass of the combustion.

    I rarely leave a response, but i did some searching and wound up here Supercharging:
    Compressor or turbo? Welcome to Zoltan Szabo’s Blog site!. And I actually do have a couple of questions for you if you tend not to mind. Could it be simply me or does it seem like some of these remarks look like left by brain dead people? 😛 And, if you are writing at additional sites, I would like to follow anything new you have to post. Would you make a list of all of all your shared pages like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?
