check out this site fellas! www.electricsupercharger.com 5-15 hp dyno proven hp for any intake system. tell me what you guys think? on a pri cold air intake. maybe it has potential. who will be the first to try it? 300- 350 bucks

I'll assume you are ignorant about this...

This stupid thing has somehow managed to stay in the market for a few years. It is stupid and you will gain no power from it. Run away from it as fast as you can.



thank you drive thru

no point in even tring, according to the performance garantee our engines have not responded to eletric supercharger.
everything they mentioned on there web site seemed good up untill that point.

why would you do that. I gained around 10 hp from going to the pop charger to the full cai.

this is the biggest crock of bullshit that i have seen since the fake intercooler. what a friggin lie. i can't belive these guys sell this thing...their figures don't even make sense....like the power draw, for example:

Does the eRAM put a large drain on the alternator?

Answer: No, the max current draw is only in the 50amps range. This is as much as a high powered stereo, headlights or a electric radiator cooling fan. Most electrical systems can handle draws of 90 amps. We have even tested the eRAM on motorcycle electrical systems with no problems. The e-RAM generates up to 10 hp while It uses approximately 1hp (746watts) from the electrical system. This has been verified on the dyno and with current meters. Since most charging systems work off voltage drop of the battery, the burden of the current draw really depends on the shape of your battery. Most batteries in good shape see very little voltage drop for short duration current draws of 50 amps for 10 to 15 seconds.

...ummm nope.
okay, lets see:
1) this thing only draws 50 amps...most electrical systems are capable of 90 amps.
WHAT ABOUT ALL THE OTHER ELECTRICAL BULLSHIT??? according to them radiator fans, stereos, and headlights only draw this much...umm 50+50+50+50 = 200!!! if you have 600 watts of headlights, you are on bad ****er!

2)this thing only uses 746 watts...this thing uses 50 amps. according to the laws of electricity and mathematics, 746 watts on a 12 volt line equals approximately 62 amps. WTF??

3) this thing uses 1hp and produces 10hp. umm, if it uses one, then it only produces NINE!

4) the current draw really depends on the shape of your battery. Most batteries in good shape see very little voltage drop for short duration current draws of 50 amps for 10 to 15 seconds. yeah...it'll be in good shape, BUT NOT FOR LONG..

i'm sure there are many more contridictions in the pile of misinformation on thier website. this is just what i picked up on first. as ben said, RUN AWAY FROM IT AS FAST AS YOU CAN!



would you like fries with that?

Why not just get a blow dryer instead? I know they make some with the "cold air" switch, so maybe you'll get 20 hp now.. what a joke

It's garbage, at least on Japanese sports cars. All the cars they tested had minni van motors or little domestic peices of crap engine.

Lets all go turbo and forget about little 2hp gains. Let's gain 200 hp's!!!! eek!

Hey I was just at Laguna Seca in Monterey, Ca yesterday and that red Porsche 928 was there racing with electric supercharger stickers all over it. I was wondering what kind of freaky thing that was. Almost as good as the Tornado, except the Tornado is only $70, not $299. No wonder the 928 seemed slow.

LOL! I knew it was coming. I would never buy this crap. I just knew you guys would flip out when you saw the site. Funny thing is, they really can sucker any one who dosen't really know better with the fancy Dyno charts and the quality cars they use to represent their ****! So relax ,I wasn't planning to buy it I'm saving up for someones NOS kit! HEHE!
