    Default Can this actually work?

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/20hp-TurboCharger-Fan-VAUXHALL-VECTRA-ASTRA-OMEGA-CORSA-/200541461871?pt=UK_CarsParts_Vehicles_CarParts_SM& hash=item2eb133dd6f&autorefresh=true

    Found this on ebay. I never believe cheap products i see on ebay actually work, but could this posibly do what it says? He has a fair ammount of feedback with very little negative

    You buy it and I'll fit it to mine and report back.

    I doubt it will make any positive impact. If anything, that thing in the air duct may even reduce air flow and hence power.....

    You pay, I'll test. Fair?

    Utter twaddle!!

    On an aircraft turbofan engine the frontal blades are part of the compressor stage NOT the turbine stage, and are spun not by the force of incoming air but by drive from the turbine stage, which is spun by the rapidly expanding exhaust gases.

    All this thing is going to do is spin and probably make a lovely whizzy whiney noise. To have the effect of compressing intake air it would have to be independantly powered to effectively suck in air at a greater vacuum than the cylinders already do.

    Don't waste your money!

    Don't post your money to Benny!

    Post your money to me instead.... my GSi has greater need

    I remember a few years back they were selling an exhaust whistle that you bolted onto the end of the exhaust tail pipe that gave you an authentic turbo whistle lmao. My mate got and it got fitted just to simply give everyone a laugh. Just done a search and there people still selling them, at least now they are selling them as a novelty item instead of making silly claims
