I gained +80 horsepower from one of those pumps you use to inflate an air matress. I JB welded it onto the intake. Its sick.
The point of superchargers and turbos is your introducing compressed air into an engine... get a good intake, or hell, keep the stock one and you will get more air pulled into your engine than this fan can pump in.

Well to be perfectly honest, there is this article i was reading that stated a electric roots type supercharger helped a altima from 115whp to 208whp, but this unit is vastly different then ebay electric superchargers, and it looks like it almost costs more then current kits.
This setup required 3x odessey batteries in the boot.
Exhaust gasses are still free.
I already struggle to understand the use for a supercharger given the modern turbos' efficiency. Adding 3 batteries and a supercharger for a 90% power gain (140lbs) when you could do that with around 40 and a way smaller headache sounds just dumb.
Enlightenment is manís leaving his self-caused immaturity. Immaturity is the incapacity to use one's intelligence without the guidance of another. Such immaturity is self-caused if it is not caused by lack of intelligence, but by lack of determination and courage to use one's intelligence without being guided by another.
