dont laugh to hard lol

well i was looking on ebay for superchager, really just bored. But what does a electric supercharger do, it says it pushes 2.1 psi, is that really worth the 100 dollars it cost, it also says gains of double digits, even if thats like 10 hp isnt it worth 100 dollars? i dont like to do stupid things to my car but this just seems kinda funny and something id like to do for the hell of it. does the "12 volts" just spin the "turbo" and push more air into the engine?

There actually is a electric superchager that "works". It's like $500 too. I'd have to look it up, but it's suppose to be the only one that does anything worthwhile. Only problem I believe is you need 2 additional batteries for it, and some other crap.

It does nothing. period.


The one tdkaye1 is talking about I believe has to be used like nitrous. It uses so much juice that it can't be on all the time.

That was the one I was refering to. I see I misquoted the $$$ amount. Meh, still wouldn't buy it for $500 anyways.
