    that is just a blower motor
    anyway they will actually make you lose power because it will cause a massive restriction due to being unable to flow enough air
    just another ebay scam that too many people fall for

    +1 a total and utter waste of money, your average supercharger consumes about 10-15bhp to compress the air to then boost the power, that is 6-9Killo Watts which would be a f@@king huge electric motor and not some wheezy 20watt thingy

    Also the build materials from the looks of things are suspect at best. So not only will it do diddly squat (ignore their claims, utter total lies/bull), theres a good chance the fins could break, sending debri right into your intake.

    Steer clear mate
