haha its a rip off thats what it is. I've seen sooo many of these, not like that style but bilge pump fans outfitted for intakes and stuff. I'm very very skeptical if this would ever work, but hey if it does I'd buy one, have never really heard anything amazing about this kind of thing...its just a fan that spins air "faster" into your engine this one says 5psi but I doubt it can create that much pressure. And supposedly its supposed to make more power but this one is a joke 30-40 more yeah right they wish...ahah, if you really want something like this, take a bilge pump from a boat, hook it up and away you go, but oh yeah you gotta hook it up the battery.

Go to Home Depot and get a hand held leaf blower with a 3 inch duct.
Mount the blower in the engine compartment. Remove the stock air filter box, MAF and upper duct . The MAF is useless at this point and not needed.
Connect the blower duct directly to the TB opening.
Put a cone filter on the suction side of the blower.
Get a NOS switch and connect/wire it up to the blower switch.
Mount the NOS ON/OFF switch in the cabin.

Now, you can drive around normally and when you need boost, hit the NOS switch and you'll take off like a dragster.

My favorite quote:
"THIS CHARGER RUNS UP TO 1200 CFM THATS LIKE ADDING 4-5 EXTRA THROTTLE BODIES TO YOUR ENGINE"

Is it now? I was under the impression that multiple throttle bodies are typically added to accomodate extreme engine modification, rather than being set up as a modification themselves. Thanks for clearing that up, onceagain222.

Also, I am something of an Ebay cheerleader myself, and I would like to point out that every freely accessed website out there that allows it's populace to add content will have its share of boobs and rubes that pollute it with garbage like this. Even this excellent site gives ample opportunity for these offenses. In short, ebay is great, as long as you are a smart buyer.
