Default Does this thing really work?

I was messing around looking up stuff for the car like always and came across this. Is this just some bs or will it actually give me more acceleration and all that?

Looks like BS to me, but he does have 100% feedback.

So maybe its legit? It'd be cool if it actually did what it says does for that price.

thats more like slowing down the airflow.
since i doubt the fan can spin faster than the intake can suck on its own.

The people who are stupid enough to buy these are also stupid enough to think it actually helped after they installed it.

There are such things as true electric superchargers; the problem is they tend to cost more than a standard roots- or centrifugal-style blower. This one? It's little more than a computer cooling fan and will not accomplish anything. For example, turbocharger turbine/compressor wheels spin at upwards of 900,000rpm at full boost; do you think a computer fan could spin that fast without grenading?

Anyway, this thing's about in the same area as the tornado; useless, but people buy them out of ignorance.
