Electric Supercharger

Is an electric supercharger really worth it? Or even remotely give any power gains?

99.9% of the people who buy them will not ever dyno test to see any real results.
They want to believe so badly that they will work, that they actually think they feel a difference. Therefore they will never commit to any action against the company.


Then there are others who are so embarrassed at being taken in by them, that they will never admit to buying them in the first place.


Just do some research on how many CFM a V8/V6 engine requires, then research how many CFM those things will actually produce.
You will find in most cases that they are actually a restriction.


I have seen them try to sell a regular old bilge vent fan (boat sump) as an "electric supercharger".

WARNING! If you buy one I will laugh at you.

OK, I was joking a bit, but I also wanted to keep you from wasting your money in case you were considering it.

Yes, On a small engine some leaf blowers will move enough air to provide a minimal HP increase.


"Wanna' Race? Yeah, wait till' I start my blower though."

Re: Electric Supercharger

The electric supercharger can't spin fast enough to make any positive difference. It will act as a cork in your intake system though, and some of the Honda fans who have used them discovered that the blades break off and get sucked into the engine.

To move enough air to make a difference requires a lot of power (not quite 1.2 gigwatts but a lot, of course if you have the Mister Fusion and your flux capacitor you will be all set)

Nitrous is the cheapest bang for the buck upgrade.
Just do it right.
