Hey guys Im new to the site-been reading a few topics here and there. I was wondering what you guys think of this site:

http://www.esuperchargers.com/supercharger...percharger.html

Says its selling a guide to build your own electric supercharger. Just wanted to know your thoughts on it. Worth the buy for the instruction?

**Also seems more like a turbocharger then supercharger since its forced induction. Makes me question if they know what they're are talking about.

Alright thanks for the help-always happy to learn from those who are happy to teach. You know any good sites I could read up on belt driven superchargers for a e30?

I would just like to point out that installing a supercharger means updating the main bearings and maybe some other components to handle the increased loads
