the real problem with them is that they aren't variable flow. They are usually just on or off. If you want to not screw up your induction system and its flow characteristics, you need variable flow systems like mechanical super or turbochargers.

Back on topic for a second...why don't we make a sticky about electric "superchargers"? It seems like we get at least one thread a week about the damn things.

Yeah it should go in there. I'll move it.

They don't work, there has been countless threads about them, all of them eventually get slammed and closed down with all the stupid arguements that ensue. For the price that they go for, if they actually did work we would ALL use them. They are junk along with those TB spacers, resistor chips and the various other garbage out there being sold on ebay. Ebay is a good place to purchase things but the 'scammers' are on there hardcore trying to sucker people in to buying things like this.

Stay away, stay far far away.....
