But actually, what happens if that crappy little fan breaks and you get pieces of plastic sucked into you engine? And tell me, how do these people get positive feedback?

(Wont laught AT you... but NEAR you is a different story

I dont think it has enough CFM to help. Especially once you pull the current from the alternator.)


That little computer fan will give us NA guys a nice "turbo whine" to make it SOUND like we're more powerful... its just too bad its the fan thats being pulled instead of it pushing.

And when it shatters and sends crap flying up through the intake well have a heroing story of our turbo exploding pulling our best run down the strip!

The fan is a restriction. You'll lose power, not gain. Anyone who'* actually SERIOUSLY considering this isn't a dumbass........but remember that old saying "there'* no such thing as a stupid question"????

You're pushing the limits of that.

Bill, you usually have a good line for every situation on BC, and you've kept your streak alive thus far

Seriously though, some of you guys can search the forums for topics similar to this.... it has already been discussed extensively. As Repin said, there IS an electrically-operated Eaton M62 out there somewhere, so electrical supercharging is definitely possible. It just isn't efficient or cost-effective... yet. Keep researching it, and with enough trial and error you just may stumble upon something.

As opposed to the the coolant running through the manifold for what? Why or who would think this was safe or even in it'* best interest? Went through my second manifold already. This is ridicoulous, and for GM to say we won't recall. As of this morning they throw a recall for a truck tailgate! GM safety advisor saying "Let'* fix something that doesn't jepordize harm but hey let'* cause major engine failure if not caught,then deny that. It'* amazing how they say there is no recall but the stock part orginally on the car compared to the part you now buy at the dealer has completely different alterations to them. If there was never a problem with the production why change things from what came on it originally. Gives a whole new meaning to OEM

All the big corporations are corrupt in some way. People suck and thats that. Humanity will soon pay the price for their evil deeds, you'll see.
