Normally Crazy,

Save your time...the Surbo is a total non-performer which has been marketed well...atleast in some places. There are loads of testimonials on the web, just do a search on google and you should come across some from actual users.

In fact, there was also a review from an Indian car-mag a long time back (car&bike int'l, indian auto...dont remember) and the performance of their car actually DECREASED after installing this surbo thing.

Hey pal

I second what GTO's said. Surbo has had a real bad reputation abroad, and frankly no one really knows the mechanics behind the system. It'd be better u stick to the better known ones than something like Surbo

Remember, its not the performance enhancement that counts... its getting to the finishing line that does

Hey Pal,
Surbo SUCKS!. Just got a fancy name. Most tests have proven this product to be just another hype in the market. The product at low revs actually affects the air flow and thus creating lower power. The surbo is a system where they try to create a vortex in the air so that the spinning of air will suck more air into the engine. However the principle the surbo uses is good. But in case of the product its crap.
You can make one yourself at home and try also read up on some aerodynamic books which can help you go alternate methods to achieve this vortex im talking about.

Cheers
Dom

Thumbs down Surbo and turbonator crap clarified

I know this topic is old hat to you but someone asked about the Turbonator so I thought I would post the link that I had posted in the Paliousersgroup about a year and a half or so ago. Do not waste your hard earned money on such crap. If this was all it took to improve power every single three wheeler in our country would have had one and BAJAJ chairman would have given it as original fitment for all his automobile products. Bye and wear your seatbelts.
