Sounds like another Tornado device. Isnt that what a high current alternator does?

Did some researching about this product. Here is what I found.

That fan would have to spin faster then the air coming in to begin with, then it could actually hurt performance on our cars. Definately not cheaped price though. I suppose it could work on some cars.

it might work on a motorcycle or other type engine with a small displacement. For our cars, NO.

Well.. I personally wouldn't really invest in a fan setup other then to cool the car down. To have an electric supercharger you would actually need a turbine system.. that will compress air. I can't see how a normal fan can give you more then 2.5 PSI the most..

dont bother with this crap ive messed with it and it doesnt work u might as well as get a cold air intake and be done with and also notice its not pressurized so its basicly a boat blower fan with a cool name.
