These devices come up as sponsored ads all the time. For instance, on the Honda Civic forum, the 'turbonator' electric supercharger/fan gimmick (that doesn't work and actually restricts your intake and it'* natural ability to breathe) shows up in ads all the time because Turbonator pays for the ad space.

You won't find a single person on the Civic forum that would buy the POS, and they bash it constantly. Nevertheless, the ad remains.

Many engines benefit from the twist...ours would suck if you disturbed the flow.

Ya being supercharged we'd just starve the */C of air with something like that. I think it'* more the benefit for larger engines with a pointing up TB. Not sideways like ours.
