    Definitely a good read. Unfortunately the power requirements are way too high for a b5 s4.

    This should probably be put in the chatterbox area.

    Wouldn't be surprised if less power intensive version of this technology spills into the aftermarket eventually. That is similar to what happened with EFR turbos, they were really an OEM technology that got brought to the aftermarket and made accessible to everyone.

    haha i was thinking about putting it in the chatterbox area but noone really goes in there lol. and it definitely exceeds the electrical of the b5. I dont remember if it said in this article but the one in car and driver said that they were designing an electronic wastegate so they can regulate flow precisely and use the motor in the turbo for a generator to replenish the electrical system.

    Didn't read the article. E-turbo tech is real and it works. OEM's are developing vehicles with them. You will eventually see them on aftermarket like EFR (I have an EFR on my S60R by the way :) ) but the best systems run higher voltage such as 48V.
