Cool garrett electric turbocharger

Okay look at the site www.xsturbos.com
This is a Garrett turbo with an dc electric motor that can either run 3 psi boost at 12v or 5-6 psi at 24v. My question is since I know that just flipping a switch and running 5-6 psi at all times isn't right, if I put a heavy duty rheostat on it and hooked it to the throttle body where it would adjust the rpms of the motor as the engine revved would that work? And also at 5-6 psi I could get by with just an ecu reflash?

Not bad if it is a real Garret. The problem with electric turbos and blowers is that they take up a lot of energy to create a little bit more flow.

I run about 1800-2000 rpms at 70 mph.which isn't too bad. But putt putting around town and in the hills drains my tank quick

re gearing will get you added torque. 4.88s is pretty high for 33's IMO most people go with 4.10s or 4.56. IMO an electric turbo is not a good idea. It might cost less but the fact that an electric motor can go bad isnt ok in my book. In a regular gas driven turbo it just turns by the exhaust much more reliable IMO. You have to pay to play a S/C is going to get you power in a lower RPM range. You can pick a used one up for a few grand if you are mechanically inclined you can install it yourself.

Too high of a gear selection IMO. Do it if you want to.

Thanks for the input tostidos. Much appreciated. Well my truck comes stock with 4.10's so I might try the 4.56's if you think 4.88 is too high cause I dont wanna lose my low gear for hills and mud. I just don't know how or where to get a turbo manifold made and im worried about detonation from too much boost. I don't know what the ecu can manage without a urd system. I just want to blput like 5-7 psi boost. Could the ecu handle that if I reflashed?

Toyota ECUs cannot be reflashed except by Toyota for the TRD supercharger.

That's just targeted advertising. The interwebs are watching you. I get ads for outdoor equipment like tents and shit.

That's not a reflash, that's a reset.
It only clears codes (not all codes), but it also clears the buffers so if you have an inspection coming up, it won't pass for a week or more.
Some trucks will also idle like shit until the ECU relearns the throttle and fuel trims.
