A buddy of mine was talking about how his brother got this for his car and how it was so great for the price. I dont know but from what he said kinda sounds like a scam to me. Maybe its just me that hasnt heard of them and they are good and legit but I was wondering if anyone has heard of ever used one of these. I know there not like top of the line or to go with anything after market but my friend was saying how he was going to get both and they will work together or get two of the turbonators or something, I pretty much lost interest when he told me about them cuz it sounded fony to me BUT what are your ideas about. Just for a stock g20 wanting some extra power is it a go or a no?

find me and i set you up reall turbo. then you smoke his ass all over
Yes I know a real turbo is much better but for like 100bucks for that electric turbo and a 60bucks for that turbonator both giving around 30hp idt is all that bad. Just I dont get the whole concept of the electic one. It says theres a switch so you dont have a consitent boost its like electric nitrous?

Yeah I understand, I cant convince my friend to not get it cuz hes set so I guess he will have to be the tester and cant pissed if it doesnt work like they say. Just wondering if anyone else here has ever heard or used it, Im not really buying the turbonator but the http://www.electricchargers.com/ one Im kinda thinking its ok but im not sure. If anyone else knows anything about http://www.electricchargers.com/ let me know

Tell him that the electric supercharger will break and pieces of metal and plastic will be sucked into his intake...it has happened before. that might convince him to not waste his money.

Yeah hopefully that will stop him, I mean it just seems like it wont give 30HP but it is cheap so its his lost but if itll break apart on him than ill have to stop him i guess never thought of that happening thanks

THESE DO NOT WORK! They actually impede airflow! air cmoe rushing into the air intake then it gets stopped by the blades of this thing then it gets blown in. Listen, if these things were so good, how come you don't see a SINGLE tuner car in any magazine have these? It's a scam! A turbo spins at 100,000+rpm. These things don't come CLOSE!

everyone has good points, but I looked on ebay in search for maybe it explaining what exactly it does and found this.... http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/electric-supercharger-turbo-universal_W0QQcmdZViewItemQQcategoryZ33742QQihZ016QQitemZ260055871568QQrdZ1QQsspagenameZWDVW

Looks like cheap plastic and and fan is put into the pipe as slimlou i think kinda said. If thats whats happening I dont get how that can get up to almost 30HP boost it just doesnt seem real. Idk I know im deff never going to get one for sure and my friend hopefully will listen and see what you guys have said. Ill just get a cold air and maybe exhaust to give it a little bit more performance.

Kinda off topic but with a short ram intake, that wont really help gas mileage or will it as well as add HP?

these things are silly and a total joke, there are a bunch of threads on these things including one with a link to study showing that these things typically result in LOST power due to constricting the intake not to mention the risk of actual damage to the car due to broken pieces. If only adding 30 horses were so easy and cheap...

They are stealing people's money $$, don't bother. Welcome to the boards...by the way

Maybe if you put a HUGE blower on that thing it would work...but then again would it really be worth the added mass? You'd have to drop in another battery just to run it.. an idea, but don't think that it's worth it..
