find out about how fast a turbo spins and devise a way to get it to spin that fast with gearing. You may be able to gear it in such a way that the optimal speed is achieved near idle, or at least at a very low rpm, and vent the extra pressure with a wastegate on the intake tubing. I'd imagine that'd be a pretty sick hiss after it winds up

the hard part wouldnt be gearing it to spin at the desired rpms. the hard part would be to house the gears, im not sure how i would go about doin it

I'd think you could either hack up the turbine housing to make a gear cover or examine how other supercharger kits have it done and have one machined. Its going to be a trial and error thing...

Think Rotrex.

about 2.5:1 ratio on the belt drive, then 10:1 on the internal ratio, overall approx 25:1 ratio.

8000 engine rpms = 200,000 turbine rpms.
