Your not getting 2-3 psi with a short ram intake. You MAY get 2-3 hp which you MAY or MAY NOT notice. A little bit better take-off from a standing start and a lot more noise coming from the rushing air when you put you foot to the floor. No damage to your engine will occur.

Kool, but i know about that. I've been looking at these electric superchargers, as they call it, on ebay and they say they can add 2-3 psi. i'm totally gonna get one but i just don't want to blow my engine. but then again they can be hooked up to a rocker switch.

Yea, they may look COOL and they may write it up to say PSI but it's not going to do that because the Throttle Body can only take IN so much air. They make it look like a small turbo but it won't work like one. Believe me, I wish, heck everyone wishes it would be that easy to put a small part in and boost up the performance.

From: How does a Turbo Charger work.....

The basic principal behind turbocharging is fairly simple, but a turbocharger is a very complex piece of machinery. Not only must the components within the turbocharger itself be precisely coordinated, but the turbocharger and the engine it services must also be exactly matched. If they're not, engine inefficiency and even damage can be the results. That's why it's important to follow correct installation, operating and preventative maintenance procedures.


The electric-superchager your looking at is just throwing more air towards the throttle body and it can only take a particular amount.

I wish I was more technical minded to fully explain the whole process.

Your car will go faster after you buy one of those electric superchargers, only because your wallet is lighter.

Thanx for the advice guys, but i'm one to learn things the hard way. I've always been like that and my mom & dad have always told me that. I actually just got a deal on one of these so hopefully by next week i'll be able to tell you if it works or not. lol

2-3 psi is nothing. When you blow up a balloon, your blowing much more pressure than that. Your JUNK blower setup looks like what you might find on some home heating and air conditioning (HVAC) systems That has been slightly modified to look fancy with a 12 VDC motor added.
