Re: turbo boost

DO NOT BUY ONE!!

you shouldnt even need to ask

it reduces your power because a tiny 12v fan cant spin fast enough to meet the needs of the engine, so rather than increasing air pressure as planned, the fan actually becomes a source of restriction to induction during acceleration. even the average max power reader should know that.

an electric super charger that actually worked would need its own power supply, and it would need to be bloody big, and it would cost thousands.
for example http://www.turbomagazine.com/tech/04..._supercharger/
