Not the first time I have seen this. I really feel sorry for the people that don't know any better and buy this crap.

Ya i agree I cant even believe someone would actually bid on that crap. I would think an engine would draw more cfm's than could flow through that puny excuse of a turbo. (looks like a computer fan or something)

There was a guy a few years ago on Ebay selling a similar looking thing but the advertisment was one of the same. It was designed to be used in the hull of a boat to suck out exhaust fumes... its just a blower fan and can buy them from a marina for 30.00

it kinda looks alot like a blower motor from the A/C - Heater box that they took the time to repaint. But as I`ve said before, those that don`t do there homework are asking to get took and theres alot for the taking on Ebay.

Haha poncho, I was thinking the same thing. I think it may be a con tho... Heres the real deal !!!! http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Torna...QQcmdZViewItem

Just for good measure I think i'll throw one of these on TURBO MAGNETS ! http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Turbo...QQcmdZViewItem

and finally I think I'm going to put a set of these on my open headers when I go to the track. http://www.spiralmax.com/tet.htm

I figure by the time i'm done I should be making about 600hp and getting 40-50 mpg

Why would anybody in their right mind pay this for a POS like this? If you are 1/2 ***** capable you could make this extremely easy and make it look better than his.But around here you can buy a 12 bolt rear for what he wants for the adapter to fake it. As for the "Super Charger" it should be called a stupid charger. Heck anyone can use a ac/heater blower and make this crap.Wow a whopping 500cfm. My cpu cooler can almost move that much air. If I fart I can move more than 500cfm. What idiots. You guys are right it is sad that people actually will pay for this junk. Both sellers need lol.

The guy has sold over 1000 of those things.. That is all he sells.....

Check his feedback..There are people who say they can feel the difference. What a bunch of morons.

He has 28 of them on sale right now, many different cars but all items show the same picture .

I wonder how he figures that blower fan will make 2.1 psi of boost


Later, mikey
