It's funny someone said scam, I have had that thought cross my mind... It's to bad that no one has really put some real effort into a system like this. As lame as I may think it is, it could work if done properly. not that I plan on that, im going pro charger

So I want to sell Superchargers for over five grand, or sell one for around $200. That's a tough decision.

Someone has. I reasearched it before. They don't sell for 200$ though. It is also actually becomeing more common to use electric s/c for spooling turbos. In the future you may even see this technology in factory setups on certain makes.

I would not be surprised to see a loss in HP when the fan is not running. Its a giant obstruction in the path of your intake. unless it it being driven by the motor it would be hurting performance.

the amount of current that would be neccasary to drive a big enough electric motor that would produce enough flow is just not feasible at 200$
