Ebay SC

Ill by 10 jk,discuss etcs, personally i know these addons do not work for the most part, this one probly hurts because it gets in the way of the airflow.

if anything i think the effort it takes the air to turn the impellars would actually cause a restriction of less air lol

Just think of it this way when it comes to performance, if the install is easy and simple then its not going to increase your horsepower.

Yes a header is simple to install for some of us but you STILL need a tune to fully benefit from it.

An intake doesnt do much either...a tune would help but its not something to be proud of.

If your looking to get some more power out of your Nbody then start looking into some cams, some head work, exhaust, a tune, etc.

Obviously but again I still recommend rebuilding the engine....and since your in there might as well insert some better cams, do some head work, etc. to get some more HP than just what the SC or TC would give you.

Well naturally. Do it right the first time so you, hopefully, dont have to do it again.

OK do you really think that this will work? Your going to put something inside your intake tube to get better airflow?

People were selling these things a few years ago. They were galley fans. Little fans used to vent a galley on a boat.

You put this in place, chances are the blades will break off, go into the TB and down in the engine and cause more problems for ya

Since it uses the INCOMING air to actually turn the fan, there is no possible way that it can create extra pressure behind it, EXCEPT when you lett off the throttle, and it is still spinning fast. Then again, the extra pressure will be barely measureable, and totally useless at the time. Even in the video, it shows the car idling, and the fan not even spinning. It MIGHT, and I say MIGHT do something to atomize the fuel differently, do the effect it would have on the airstream, but even then, I would bet that the airstream would straighten itself out by the time it hit the cylinders anyway. Think of how fast a turbo has to actually spin to create any boost, then tell yourself how usefull something like this would be???????

You just have to ask yourself:

If it really works that well and it's only $35, why do the pros still use traditional blowers that cost 10+x as much, and why haven't engines (especially diesels) that come boosted from the factory switched over to it.

What if I want to increase the diameter of the SuperCharger a tiny bit?
Buy some electrical tape or any other type of plastic tape and wrap the unit until the desired diameter is met
good stuff

They wanted to market this to people with IQ < 70 and they had to call it "Supercharger turbonator" so their targeted buyers don't miss the keyword. I'm surprised they didn't call it "Supercharger nos blower turbonator"
