Anyone had a go with a G45 yet?

As above really. Curious to know how it compares to a standard/ ported charger, etc. Is it useable or does it make the throttle like an on/off switch, etc.

Certainly look interesting, there has been a fair amount of r&d over in Germany from what I can tell

Need part of a g60 charger and a g40 charger to make one so wrecks the g60

Certainly would like to find out the limits on a well speced engine

Curious to know if anyone's got one yet?

Do they sound different? I imagine a bit more of a burble/gurgle as it's flowing more air.

Anyone know of any vids? Even better if they're before/ after comparisons.

I read a review on the maxrpm site (translated from French);


Excellent achievement - Reliability +++ Cedrick G., 27.11.2014

Product ordered from France, super fast delivery (less than a week), simple and effective communication.
The compressor arrives very clean and totally reconditioned, oiled and greased generously, look origin like a new part. The parts provided in exchanges are genuinely exchanged by a compressor already ready.
Nothing to do with the prepaid cans of the pseudos specialists of the G in France, which I paid, as many of us I suppose ...
Almost every day use in the 5PK pulley of 68mm, 1 bar at 6000trs / min, 1800km without any worries, no running-in, increased pressure over the entire curve of the speed makes the impression to have a prep overhand and torque while only the compressor Is responsible.
Ideal for not getting into the big G60 changes and not disfiguring his polo.
I would do it again without hesitation.
The strength of the G is with you! O)

Oh my God, who the hell is driving? Stabby throttle much? Interesting that they seem to corner the opposite of how you're meant to! 😂 piss taking aside, it sounds alright I think.

Is all a bit clumsy! Im pretty much set on getting one now. Figure if im going to pretty much a full rebuild i can sacrifice a few extra pounds and my spare charger for something a bit unique.
