Correct. There are some prototypes by the compressor manufacturers that are using clutches, but typically they do not use them yet.

The system uses a bypass valve to reduce parasitic drag of the compressor in off-boost driving.

If anyone is curious as to how it feels, send me an email and stop by. I am in northeastern MD, near the DE border.

My car just feels like it has a significantly larger engine in it!
