I wouldn't trust it. Just something that can fail and get sucked into your intake. I would save your money.

Re: Does this work?????

EL OH EL !

From their "Installation" page...

4. Install the wiring to the battery and decide the best method for your case to activate the charger. The witch should be installed and assembled near the accelerator linkage in the engine compartment or under or near the pedal. Make sure the micro-switch is only activated at wide-open throttle. Continues running of the charger is not good for the charger and can cause engine to shut off because of the extra air flow while car is in idle.

So... the only time it turns on is when you have the accelerator mashed to the floor... so during idle or part-throttle the electric motor and fan gets in the way to inhibit air flow?

Too bad the Dyno page is blank... with good reason I suspect...

I thought it was funny that the dyno page was blank also.

I'm usually not a "Grammar Nazi", but read on their own page and you'll see several things either misspelled, or wrong punctuation!.. Point being that if a company doesn't have the cash, time, or intelligence to proofread before they post some claims!.. Then they don't have the cash, time, or intelligence to build a solid product that actually works!..

Plus I've seen on uTube a guy that put one of these on his car and then dynoed it!.. I think he gained 1hp (when he was at full throttle and it kicked in)!.. For a fraction of the price you can get a throttle body spacer and get the same results!..

I didn't even read I was too amazed at the sophistication all for $175.00 Did that include the intake, or was that just the fan and motor?

You Grammar Nazi! (Just kidding) I went to read it very minor grammatical errors, but I agree for that money, one would at least want to proof read their work, you would think.

May as well hook a leaf blower up to your car. This is something some kid with a Honda would do. Please don't do this. Maybe I will even do it to my wife's CRV.

Hot Rod magazine actually hooked up 2 leaf blowers to a Corvette. They gained a couple horsepower amazingly

I just found this for the "electric supercharger" thread. I remember lol'ing hard when I saw this.

I've thought about hooking a leaf blower up to my civic before. Just for laughs
