gaaaaaaaaa... another one. Seriously, these are a big waste of money, its more likely to restrict air flow than to actually overcome the vacuum enough to produce boost.

You know what they say, (If it sounds to good to be true...)
If there was something out there that could give you a 25% increase in power for $35.00 everyone would know about it and have one. I would stay away from it if it was me.

if it really worked everyone would have one. its a waste of money. heres a good rule of thumb.

good, fast, cheap. you may choose any 2.
if its good and fast it wont be cheap.
if its fast and cheap it wont be good.
if its cheap and good it wont be fast.

I can see that you are pretty new to the forum. I one day asked myself the same question you are asking now. Nobody could give me a solid answer of why this Electric superchargers do not work so I decided to try myself one of this and this is what happened.

I agree with all the comments. I guess its similar to those cheap ECU module that someone sells on ebay for $25. Funny though someone from my old E46 forum got suckered into buying one

And yes, I'm new in the ford focus scene. So far so good. This forum is an excellent source of info specially for newbies. Not really into heavily modding the engine to gain radical power gains. Just curious on how this guy can sell hundreds of this product on ebay and still manage to stay in business.

Thanks for inputs guys.

fhg959: Excellent write up BTW. crappycharger is a good word LOL
