alternative 150kw option for A series, cheapest 150kw upgrade?

Just watching this video was like a revelation as I saw 6-8 years ago
a system that attaches to your transmission but this one seems to be
easier to implement provided our transmission choice and diff is beef.
for 5000 USD you can have 150kw on top of whatever A series you run
and 112kg battery pack for that option.
Im thinking 100kws extra at and close to 600lbs of torque is ample on top
of any A series but things have got cheaper over the years and Im going
to inquire on the base showcased kit for my daily.
 
to get 150kws plus say a stock healthy A15 at 40kws atw = 190kws atw
which usually would cost around 5000 usd after the right box and diff upgrades.
An NA A series capable of that is impossible and turbo would have serious lag
lack of torque and power starts at 5000rpm as proven by Sykine on dats1200.com
Therefore this is instant big block v8 torque from idle no lag and also has regen
when you slow down or engine brake which means perfect economy as you
can also charge the batteries from home and have serious range in a 1000.

Just looking at this D,
 
Dont quite get it.
 
So the big bulbous thing bolted next to the engine with the battery cable running to it. Is that an induction motor that produces charge/ battery power from the motor - a battery charger?
 
Or does that take power from the batteries and provide drive to the motor crank via the serpentine belt?

Yep you are right, an electric motor that runs on a small pack of batts
e motor runs off the crank pulley to assist on take off or gear changes
when rpms drop I suppose, wonderful extra torque
 
Easier than an electric motor in your gearbox like toyota do but not as good as
a motor attached to the back of your gearbox before the diff

hmmm. Interesting concept. So its a DC motor hooked to some batteries with a fancy electroncs board to make sure the current goes in the right directions at the right times. Simple ideas can make the best ones.
 
you would be limited to the amount of torque that it can supply based on the what the belt can handle.
 
As long as it works as a helper, and not to replace the engine, I could see that it could provide some benefit, but it  would be good to see some actual test numbers.
 
It sounds good in principle, however, as it has to go through belts and the crank bla bla blah, you would lose a heap of effenciency. Like you said, the closer to the diff the better.
 
It also seems like it would be a sizeable input cost. If you install that in order to gain savings and therefore pay for itself, I think you might be disappointed.

5k usd is cheaper than most new billet quality spercharger kits
this thing saves fuel and does work, many people actually have
done similar setups after the gearbox, yes there would be a belt
loss in efficiency no doubt but very little as its a supercharger belt
and they can handle crazy torque changes.
The UPS trucks in America have the after gearbox setup
and have made up 20-30% fuel savings overall as the important
thing about hybrid setups like this is to assist on take offs where
most of the efficiency goes out the window on gas engines
