Ever heard about OIL-LESS Turbochargers?

Like this one:
Neuer Comp Turbo - CT3 6768BR-OL bis 950PS Billet, Keramiklager und Oil-less - Toyota Supra - Forum
(please get on google translator)

How can this work?
Very interesting, no f*cking around with oil feed and oil drain shit.

Jefftsai runs these.

No idea on how reliable they would be, especially since you track the car....

Not sure how they keep cool either...because they look exactly like a regular turbo....maybe air cooled? :S

maybe they use grease on the bearings instead of oil??

ya for sure water cooled.

Comp Turbo - Oil Less

"Designated the Model CT3B-OL, it employs the well proven, patented TRIPLEX CERAMICô bearing system with high temperature grease lubrication."

There you go!

I wonder how responsive they are compared to billet journal bearing turbos and DBB.

Interesting thing.... and when I am thinking of the headache issues with damaged bearings because of "nobody knows", then it should be an option to think of.... as far it is some kind of reliable.
