Default E charger...

Hey all, my boyfriend and I like to work on our bikes and on our car when we have the time and money to upgrade custom car parts. Our last endeavor was getting on of those aero body kits for our ride. Anyways, I was online this morning checking out some different products when I saw an electric supercharger. It was significantly cheaper than your conventional supercharger AND it said you'd increase MPG. Is this believable or a scam? Because if it worked, and gave our car torque AND less time at the pumps, I AM IN!!

Those things have been around for years and they're a scam. Same with the eBay "chips". Like the saying goes, if it seems too good to be true....

I have a modified hairdryer that substitues the airfilter that provide an increase of 100 horsepower .....

Seriously, the only thing for an NA that will give any good gains will be a REAL supercharger system. Or the other option will be the turbo engine swap.

They don't push enough air to make a difference.
