Default Is there anyway this can be true?*elec supercharger*

Is there any way a electric supercharger like this one herehttp://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ELECTRIC-SUPERCHARGER-TURBO-WILL-FIT-ANY-VEHICLE_W0QQcmdZViewItemQQcategoryZ33741QQitemZ800 8319839QQrdZ1 to give any boost at all like 2-3 psi like it claims? Any way u can put bigger engine in it to make it gain any boost like u know upgrade the alternator and put something major in it I know that these probally wouldn't do anything but it would be cool if they did...

Exactly, you would be far better off just doing some simple mods..better flowing than OE exhaust, CAI, good tune up..that kinda thing..a perfect running engine is the best, that little elec superecharger wont do sqwat for you.

at least until the fan comes apart, then it does you a big favor of not having to worry about fuel mileage anymore, or even car expenses for that matter

Thats on a 1.6L engine, not a 3.8. Put it on a 3800 and you will see basically no gain at all. Nowhere near worth the money.
