Default Electric Super Charger Joke Or Real Deal?

Has anyone heard of or bought and used an electric turbo like this: http://www.superchargertuning.com/Ford/Ranger/

I've read mixed reviews on them online, I'm just curious if anyone on here knows if they even create boost?

The web site reads like one of those late night infomercials,unless you find someone who has one and it does what it say's I"d stay away.without tearing down and building up a engine your not going to see any great #"s on performance.Take my advise with a grain of salt I"M not a engine builder I"ve just been around the block a time or two. :^)

something tells me this is chinese garbage.... maybe the horrible translation?? hahaha
I'd definitely stay away just because of that, even if it does work-ish. ( which I really doubt)

I think my truck just LOST a few HP, just by me looking at this!

But seriously, that fan wouldn't even be able to make a few pounds of pressure and most turbos run about 5-6 pounds.

I bet I could get extra credit for that if I printed it out and took it to my English professor along with an essay on why proper grammar is important.

Looks like cheap junk and I'd bet would screw up air flow and loose HP not gain any... especially if you get the OPTIONAL air filter?

I think the principle is there, but in order to over come the load on the electrical system and actually produce boost, they need to have some sort of gear up-duction (terminology?) I'm by far any kind of expert in turbos/chargers and boost and all that mess. But, if you could mimic what a supercharger does in theroy with an electic one, I don't see why it couldn't work...

I think this would give you about the same performance boost as the above product.

They don't work, it's a scam, just like the 100HP computer chips you see all over ebay.

I forget where I saw the actual numbers but the boost required to give you any gains, can not come from this device.....The natural flow of air was not increased by much at all when they used this POS.

Main rule in figuring out if something "works"...is if it did work, and it was this cheap, EVERYONE would be running one..... just sayin'

Says up to 5 lbs of boost

They say it can stay on for up to 1 minute . I can see this thing burning up in no time flat .
15 to 60 HP is what they claim . Made in Germany and Japan .

I'll pass thx ....
