There are a lot of aftermarket electric superchargers for sale like E-RAM(http://www.electricsupercharger.com) or Thomas Knight claiming to give up to 12 PSI (http://www.boosthead.com/product.php).
The structure of such superchargers is very simple so I think I can easily make one by myself and it will cost me about $30, but I would like to know is it worth it (the time I spend on it) and what performance can I expect to gain.
I would like to know if any one had such an experience.
Thanx

You would acheive the same amount of power by shooting your self in the head and then saddomizing your neighbors dog.

Seriously, it's not worth it. n

the power draw required to power the high amp motors used in e-superchargers makes the system like a nitrous bottle more then anything else... its used for 12 second bursts at a time and then your aux battery used to power the supercharger is dead and you have to wait for your alt to recharge the battery and then go for it again.

Instead of buying it, just send me the money. I mean, after all, thats all your doing is giving someone money for nothing. Theres no such thing as electric super chargers, they dont work, its just a scam. All it boils down to is like having a vaccum cleaner try to push air inside your engine, itll work for a quick second, but after the pressure neutralizes, the electric motor cant handle compressing air enough to give you power. A good way to think about horse power, in a nominal sense. For every 1 horse power it costs $15bucks, this isnt true in ALL cases, but its a good way to look at things.

not entirely true. one of my customers has a e-supercharger he developed for the 3.6L cadillac engine. it works exactly as i described.. it uses 2 super-lightweight batteries located in the trunk, and a 200 amp alternator for rapid charging of the batteries.

he has two models, one capable of 8psi and the other for 12psi.

in the most basic of terms, they are electric motor driven turbochargers.

I disagree. I think he would produce more energy if he sodomized the neighbor's dog, cause it would require friction and muscle burning.

LOL : :

i bet you could find these things on ebay for cheaper, with this you would have to run a cone filter wouldn't you?? and doesn't it just seem like a higher end turbonator?? but hell you should give it a try and let us know how it went it wouldn't hurt.
