Besides causing a disturbance the vacuum of the engine will burn out the motor

With all that HP gain you certainly wouldn't want to accidentally install it backwards. You might end up sucking the car inside out from the tail pipe to the intake!

In an n/a engine it cant spin fast enough to keep up with the CFM your naturally aspirated engine sucks. So it kills performance till the extra RPM of flow burns the unit out. With a supercharged engine, I'd be afraid of sucking the plastic fan into your rotors. hehehe. You have to get real about modding your engine, or save it for beer money at least.

Saw a ricer on pass time once. they asked if he had any power adders. He said yes, a electric supercharger. That car flew down the track for a mind boggling 14.5

Wow if I was one of the contestants standing there I would be laughing my *** off. I would probably be disqualified for that round because I'd be laughing to hard to enter a time.

I know I was laughing. What a clown. There was another show where two ricers came up and the host said you lost part of your car. The front was all gone
