What would a hypercharger....

  1. I am considering adding a hypercharger or a turbocharger to my 50cc 2 stroke bicycle. What does it do?
    Is it worth it? How does it work?

    I had a 94 Ford Thunderbird Supercoupe with a supercharger and a 1984 and 1986 Ford Mustang SVO and 1987 Ford Thunderbird Turbocoupe turbocharged engines. The supercharger tapers off with rpm so that it feels like a big displacement engine. Supercoupe did over 260 kph at less than 5000rpm. Turbo motors worked more like a tuned pipe 2 stroke. Turned on at 4000rpm and explosive power with rpm. 2 strokes do not work great with turbos for various reasons. A big problem would be pumping the air/fuel mix straight out of the cylinder while both intake and exhaust ports are open.

    For the most part these might work on a 4 stroke but not on a 2 stroke. For what you would pay for the power adder, you could buy a 3x or 4x more power engine. Not really economically viable.

    the trick to a good running turbo 4 stroke is to have cams with as little overlap as possible. not doable with a 2 stroke
