Waste of money.If you want to give $179 away just send it to me and I will tell you your car has 150 more horse power.

They work, but you are going to get maybe 1PSI max. It's not worth the money.

You'd be just as good off hooking up a hairdryer under the hood.

i actually had one. It felt like it worked. I know it helped with mpg's but the thing crapped out on me with only 3 months of use. so i took that sh*t off and installed a 90 degree elbow and a shorty filter.

There are companies that make electric turbos. Basically they are electric air compressors. They can work. Will anything under a couple hundred bucks give you enough boost to make any difference? No. Buy a good filter for your stock box. Cooler air, and better flow. It will give you a couple horses for a couple tens. Might even register on that "seat of the pants" dyno.
