This has been talked over on here, and they do absolutely nothing. Believe it or not, at WOT, the "electric supercharger" is actually most likely being outflowed by the engine. You are better off returning it and getting your hard earned money back. And even if it did provide a HP gain, it would only be 1-2 HP MAX.

If you got one of the little electric fans that goes inline with the filter and TB, your engine is flowing more CFM'* at wide open throttle than the fan can provide. It is a restriction at all RPM'*, whether it'* on or not.

Return it.

The only electric supercharger that WORKS is the Electric M62, but the weight you carry in batteries is enormous.

The E-ram is a marketing joke and a farce.

Which electric supercharger do you have? Does it actually seem like you can feel a power increase when it'* turned on?
