Second that. Electric "superchargers" cannot build enough pressure fast enough to yield a performance boost even slight enough to compensate for the extra alternator load. 100% gimmic, for all cars.
Ebay is getting notorious with $20 intakes and $10 "resistor chip" mods, anymore.
Watch out!!!

Really, if they worked, who would buy a Supercharger or turbocharger for thousands of dollars? Think about that...

I'm using my shopvac motor in my Expedition....






One hurdle to overcome is the inherent short range, I get about 150' of boost then it goes dead.....






And I'm still working on the hood clearance issues....




When I get it perfected you'll see it on Ebay.....

I think Evangelions have the same issue. . . maybe that was too obscure a reference.

But yeah, those ebay "turbochargers" are a waste of money. Now hook up a generator in your trunk, cut some holes in your hood and Mike will fix you up.

I'll eat my words if Dinan, Turner Motorsport, or say Alpina use these electric Superchargers.

If you want to Supercharge your car for under $100, get one of those Turbonator Air Hose thingies!

:P
