    hi, loads of people are saying that these electric superchargers can make a big difference to the bhp, has anyone got one or seen one working? are they worth buying?

    I take it your after a bit more bhp mate.....thers is only minimal gains to be made via the usual routes of filters / exhaust / remap etc and leave no option but to go for a transplant....the 320 engine sounds nicer and drives smoother as its a 6 pot but again not a huge gain in power......would have to be something much bigger and you then have to consider is it all worth it or just better to save up and buy a stock car with the desired engine.

    Electric Supercharger... ? I think you would see more gains if you installed a Hairdryer in your intake.

    On every forum I have visited these keep popping up. Do you really think a PC cooling fan will actually help your car?

    Not having a go at you, just the guys who make this damnable contraptions.

    I don't think I'd be too happy with a metal impeller spinning around in the intake system, Imagine the effects if one day it got tired and decided it wanted to go for a wonder

    Bye Bye engine

    I noticed that this thread was in the wrong section of the forum. I have now moved it to the tuning section

    Is this one of those amazing eBay products again!?!

    Stay well away from it mate.... You will be best putting your money to something that will help - like a remap or something along those lines
