Electric supercharger!

Hey guys, I'm not planning on using this, but I was just looking through ebay last night, and found this (link below). And from my previous information I was informed then later found out my self, that the electric superchargers actually hurt performance in big engine like ours because they move less air then what the engine need at WOT. This ad claims to move 800 cfm of air, so my question is, if any one know is this just another way to get people to spend money, on useless stuff, or did the electric super chargers get better in the past few years, and they actually work? I don't have access to a dyno any more, but if I did, I would have tried it on my car!

I think the only reason they still sell these is because people actually buy them. Anything that goes into the tube would just be impeding airflow. I havent seen the one that plugs into your engine like that but i am 98% sure it would hurt you more than help.



Predator 93 Tune, Jba Shorty Headers, ported and polished lower intake manifold, 71mm ported throttle body, 20 inch staggered machine faced viper replicas, K&N Cold Air intake, RT Honeycomb Grill, Dual red/white AAC halos, Debadged, , 15% front 5% back tint. , Rear spoiler, Danko chin spoiler, Fogs, Flowmaster dual exhaust. probably more I can't think of

It's an interesting concept but i'm with taylor there's no way this could actually help.

That's what I though but I was just wondering if anyone has tried one? And maybe had dyno results?
I know the older versions hurt performance.
For a little Honda if this really moves 800 cfm it may actually help but I HSBC fact to back that up its just my opinion

I'm getting tired of these threads, I swear this is like the 4th one about this product in the last month... it's not your fault, it's the products... and that people ask about them all the time.

Simple answer:

It won't do ANYTHING for you, except make your wallet lighter.

2008 Dodge// Charger SE Plus 3.5
TORRED exterior. Mods: too many to list.

Charger bought new, 10 minutes from Chrysler headquarters on December 30, 2008.

I got that, that was my thought to, and I did see the other treads, I just wondered if anyone actually tried one, to see what the loss really is!
