Mr Buzzi built a splitter box for a turbine, with a similar concept, although I have to say, it looks a little stronger, but then we are talking about Buzzi!

Sorry for my ignorance but could someone explain (in words of one syllable) how it works? (I'm assuming it gives more power???)

How to make your own turbine..............

Get an old turbo, connect the cold side output to the hot side input.

Add a fuel feed and spark plug just after the cold turbine and hey presto!!

If you want a power turbine, just connect another free spinning compressor wheel with an output shaft after the hot end.
