    Question Electric Supercharger??

    Guys, anyone fitted one of these on a Veccy?

    I'm interested if anyone has used one in a normal aspirated gasoline engine like mine Z22SE

    Any opinions and advices welcomed

    alot of people say stay away from them mate.

    There are such things as good electric superchargers but they cost a hell of a lot more

    But nobody actually has tested one as far as im aware you never know

    From what I read I'm undecided about this, it does the same thing as an induction kit like Viper I suppose, but it should have bigger pressure.

    Still undecided, probably after all I'll go with Viper, safer and probably same increase in power (5-10 HP max)

    For that cost performances should be the same, after all a proper turbo system like Dbilas is about 4K

    What is that, the supercharger you mean? What model was it, like this one or the cheap 30 USD ones?

    I can't remeber but I paid about £120 without a air filter. Mine was made of metal rather than plastic and looked better than that one...

    If they were any good, they'd be fitted as standard - along with these and these...

    Having said that, I'm really tempted to get the first one, do 2 runs on the rollers on saturday and see what happens...

    Has anyone else tried the EconoMAX +35bhp Vortex Cyclone 30% Petrol/diesel saver or the UNIVERSAL MAGNETIC GAS FUEL SAVER?

    They both sound a bit far fetched. I'd love to know if they actually work!
