I'm a mechanic and want to add some extra power to my 3cyl metro :twisted:
I'm thinking of moding a turbo to make it belt driven beacuse I dont want to mess with the exaust and also to be different :shock:
feel free if you have any idas please tell me about them. I sure need them :huh:

Most turbos spin 150,000+rpms they would not work belt driven. Even making it belt driven would be more work than an exhaust manifold. The vortec superchargers are side mounted and belt driven but I'm not sure how those would work on a Metro. There have been a few people that have put eaton SC's on their Metro's. I'd look in to it if I had a NA car. Check out this one http://www.teamswift.net/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=46448
