    These seem like a good idea in principle, but I can't even imagine how fast that little electric fan would have to spin to move the air in there faster than normal aspiration. Let alone fast enough to have a ram/supercharging effect.

    I've never read anything from anyone on any forum that stated these things work. The only positive claims I've ever seen are from the manufacturers. But I kinda have that 'I want to try it for myself' mentality, even though I don't think they'll work, and ppl would laugh at me

    Like said above, the principal seems sound. However, there is just no way a DC motor is going to be able to add any forced induction affect to a V8.

    I have seen videos of dyno results on 4 cylinders and I think they probably do work for small displacment engines.

    Now.. If someone created an A/C based one, I think it just MIGHT work.. Maybe not though.

    Deffinetly only buy it for the fun of it, at $24.00 it could be worth playing with just for the sake of something to do some Saturday.

    It woulkd work but you would need a larger motor and fan. Still seems a little like strapping a leaf blower on and praying.

    okay it's called a 'turbo supercharger' in the picture. no


    "Reported Benefits are:"

    'Increased Horsepower' - well that would be nice
    'Increased Fuel Mileage' - uh okay?
    'Better Vehicle Handling' - wat. does it come with koni shocks?
    'Extends Engine Life' - just like a real turbo/supercharger does!
    'Low cost Upgrade when compared to traditional Turbos and Superchargers' - well how does it compare to a turbo tornado? those are very cost effective too. nosrcsm.

    It doesn't tie into the engine. You bolt it to the trunk of the car and it pushes the car.

    septa busses used to use a electric SC to spool up their large turbo's faster... not sure if they still do or not but more than likely not...
