Worth it?

Is this thing worth the price?

Also, it'd still be legal to drive around with a supercharger/turbocharger on it, wouldn't it?

I have never used one but from reading I would say 1. It is only useable at WOT so the applications are very limited 2. It is plastic, do you really want to hang a $150 part off the intake and risk having it come apart and your engine ingest all the fun? Na. Im also skeptical if it really can provide 2lbs of boost, the plastic looks like it would leak air pretty bad.
