VNT deemed unnecessary?

How electric superchargers work

There's not enough here yet to truly get excited, but I like the idea of bolting this on and reducing spool-up, esp when not yet warm.

Pretty neat device. My concern would be sustained operation because I'm sure this uses more amps than the alternator puts out. It would be nice to have this compounded with a larger traditional turbo as it would be less complex than compounding standard turbos.

However, at that point, a VNT/VGT would be simpler to install.

Find yourself a fairly modern, newer turbo with a twin scroll housing and use a quick-spool valve

Skippy~ As for perception: Drive what you like and can afford. Those who don't like it can supply vacuum to one of your components. LOL
