Make your car quicker and more economical with Surbo
BENEFITS OF SURBO (air Suction-turbo) for most vehicles:
Due to extra torque that peaks from a lower rpm, you can change gears earlier, or rev higher if desired. Torque x rpm = horsepower, and this dyno test shows an increase in horsepower of 7 percent.
Easier cruising and a relaxed right foot due to a higher top speed (+20 kph even for a Subaru WRX)
Improved fuel economy in mixed driving and more on highways. If you spend $200 on fuel a month, you'll save $20 a month, so the Surbo pays for itself in 5 months. After that, it can be re-installed on most other cars.
The first photo below shows the fuel consumption for a Surbo-equipped Honda Vezel (engine similar to those in 2016-2020 Honda Fit/ HRV/ Grace/ Shuttle+hybrid/ Freed+hybrid). The second photo shows the fuel consumption for a Mazda 3 with Surbo (see details here).
More fuel-saving results
Better fuel economy means less CO2 emitted per km, so the Surbo is environmentally friendly and will pass LTA vehicle inspections in Singapore.
OTHER ADVANTAGES BY VEHICLE TYPE:
For automatic vehicles in D mode: instant acceleration from rest due to improved low rpm torque, hill assistance on slopes, higher rpm capability with 1/2 throttle, and easy kickdown to lower gears.
For hybrid vehicles: faster pick up and charging of the hybrid battery. One Honda Fit hybrid owner reported a full charge on highways, and therefore a full-electric mode for a while.
For manual vehicles and motorcycles (and automatics in manual mode): reaching the rpm limit with just 1/2 throttle!
For diesel vehicles: faster and higher revving, which will help overcome the larger gaps between the gears, and a lower rpm limit compared to petrol vehicles. The lessened pressure on the accelerator helps prevent clogging of modern particulate filters, with less diesel smoke.
For turbocharged vehicles: reduced turbo lag because the denser exhaust gases would spool the turbocharger sooner, less turbo pressure required (as seen on boost meter) for the same rpm (and therefore longer engine life), and hence more headroom for tuning or turbo upgrades.
Photos below show Surbo ($99) installed on Honda Civic FD (similar to Stream and Crossroad), on turbocharged VW Tiguan/ Passat/ Golf GTi/ Audi A3, and on turbodiesel Toyota Hiace,
and Surbo on Honda Fit/ Shuttle/ Vezel hybrid, and on Yamaha Xmax300 motorcycle ,
and Twin Surbo ($160) on Hyundai Elantra/ 2019 Avante (similar to Accent, Veloster and Kia Forte K3 and 2018 Cerato), and Surbo5 ($120, for engines with large pipes) on Honda Odyssey RC1.
