    think it would restrict airflow rather than improve it

    ''dont waste your money on cheap turbo that has wastegate set by a fool!!''

    To give you a rough idea, this is what a functional electric supercharger actually looks like -



    And it requires these (in addition to a heavily uprated alternator) to run -



    Anything else is just not going to work, especially not a glorified PC case fan which will just sit there restricting the intake and make less power than standard.

    If it sounds too good to be true, then it is. 100 quid for 20HP increase, yeah sure!!

    250 cfm air...thats a lot.
    any maths boffins wanna work out how much air a 1.9l engine requires,in a minute,at 6000 rpm?
    that'll tell you if its viable lol...my guess is a lot more than 250 cu ft
    what i've felt,what i've known
    never shined through in what i've shown.

    air flow is depends holy the size of the pipework it is connected to, i do alot of kitchen ventilation systems mate and if that peice of sh-t could do them figures it would be in free air, which is not the case in a car, anyway have you looked at that load of crap, it would probably end up in your trottle body mate
