Tongue What The?

Ha Ha, my friend told me the funniest thing today.

An "Immo Super Charger"

The idea is so crazy that i'm actually wondering if it could work as a fun electrical effect. He reckons that he has enough space under his car to fit a pair of those water proof mariner speakers. ??? He has a SuperCharger switch that he wants to hook up to this pair of speakers. (One of those red-rocket launcher-looking switches)

He says when you click the turbo switch, a second cheapo CDplayer located under a seat (that is connected to the speakers underneith) turns on, with a CD that has a "sample noise" of a super charger boost! (FADES IN AND FADES OUT to your real engine again) Then when the sound sample is finished, the cheapo CD player switches off! HAHA, you could have the noisiest scareiest V8 BLOWER BOOST noise coming from the bottom of a 4 cyl if that worked!!!! People would freak out!!!!! All up he said it'd cost $200, but i don't think he'll do it. He's got me thinking now,... it WOULD freak out an awful lot of people.
What do u guys thinks about this idea?

I reckon it's a good idea.

Why spend all that money on the real thing. :)

Reading this thread reminded me of my mate who owns a bogan VH commodore. He has this idea of forced induction using a high powered electric motor which he will duct the air from the electric motor into the carby. He calculates he will get 2psi-3psi from it and like wise will use a switch to give the engine a few more hp's.

Put it this way i cracked up when he told me about the idea, but he has been known to do some really elcheapo things to his car in the past.

http://www.electricsupercharger.com

from this thread => Electric supercharger *cringe*

O/T - Did anyone ever see that Australian movie I think it was called Full Metal Jacket. A guy in that had his mum's 70's hairdryer type thingo plugged into his POS Val's air cleaner to make it go harder. Had a cool Charger in tyhe movie though.
