Default Supercharger?

Hey I just found this on Ebay I was wondering what you guys thought. I like it, a lot. It looks like a good idea and for the cost it'* good.

well you would get the same results using a hair drier motor to "force" air in.

scam

I do, I never caught that in the sticky sorry. Plus this one has a different design than said one in the sticky.

I never read that before. In the debunk myth thread, third post down there is the link to the rice forum. In there one guy said the average drag race is about 10 seconds

That thing is pure junk. Read his facts. The M62 only requires 10hp to turn it, but it produces MUCH more hp than it consumes.

He also doesn't touch on the fact that the alternator load costs horsepower, or that your engine naturally outflows that sucker.

If it really worked like they said it did, you would need a custom PCM or AFC controller to get the thing to run.

This is true, I wasn't sure on the flow of the engine itself. I think he was speaking of superchargers in general...I dunno. But thanks for the input. I guess that'* a pass. I know most of that stuff is BS but this one at least had something to it, just not enough.
