You should get one Andy, then when it causes your truck to drop 2 cylinders, you can share in my pain of having no power.

yeah it doesnt do anything. it only turns on when you floor it, because it would burn out if it was left on. Plus its extremely overpriced lol

I'm pretty sure that losing two cylinders would severely affect your performance and bring you equal to or less than the power created by my 3.0.

I think the idea is there. If you could that thing to spin fast enough I could see that working. What is a turbo? its a turbine that compresses air. What ever the power source is, exhuast, belt, electric, solor, etc. you should in theroy be able to produce the same results. It would need some type of gear reduction/upduction to get it cranking. should call it in to mythbusters
