Re: Electric Supercharger?!

How they can claim 2.1 PSI without knowing the size of the engine it is to be fitted too blows me away , havent they heard of the swept volume size of a motor

Re: Electric Supercharger?!

Well I remember not too long ago Hiclone got bagged out by all the 'experts' in the industry......... and now the spacers (same theory) are one of the many significant mods on the list for the BAs.

............can't knock it until you've tried it :oP

Re: Electric Supercharger?!

Its a bloody fan motor!!
One word in the first line describes the mentality perfectly "IMPORT" lol. A stupid term that RICERS have IMPORTED from America. Heck, all but 3 cars sold in Australia are imported so the term is irrelevant here, what a
Another thing they do that shits me is that silly bloody DRIFTING crap.

This already got talked about on every motoring web site I've seen in the last few years and is very easily dismissed. The engine sucks more air than this unit could ever generate so in fact it won't ever add air pressure. I think someone worked out that it MAY add a few KW to an under 1 litre buzzbox.

Now I'm not a motoring tech but 500cfm out of a toy hair dryer that won't drain your battery flat sounds like snake-oil to me. My wild guess is that you'd be drawing 1-2KW to really get 500cfm of additional flow - 80-160Amps. Try that on your battery and alternator.

Apart from that - note the warning signs for those of you new to Ebay - the guy's got a feedback of only 8 - too new to throw your money to. He's changed userid in the last 30 days - why? His previous userid was only 5 months old. He's obviously just a hit-and-run con artist.
