Ahh, an electric SC. Not worth it.

Nope. Not near worth $150... And I doubt it will add anyhorse power. Any increased flow will be offset by the turbulence in the intake air, Unless of course to add some vanes to the intkae, But that would reduce flow back to stock levels....

And for only a couple PSI. Not nearly worth it at all.

Natural flow of you rengine is already better than that can produce. That'll be a restriction in your intake.

I emailed him a question a week ago, but never responded to me. I dont see a Bonne or Firebird engine in those pics at all. I would be afraid if the fan piece broke off and went flying down the intake into the engine.
