Just wondering, would it be worth buying an electric supercharger for a small power increase? Or are they just a waste of money.

that was my original plans, but since my exhaust is only 2.5inch i figured i might aswell wait till i upgrade the exhaust..
im going for a 4.5" iron exhaust, iron so its tuff as.. with twin cannons and 3 high pressure multitude cats with electric modified superchargers and stage 2 shift kits..

its all in my build thread if you need more info

A hair dryer with the heating element removed works way better, run the cable through the firewall and plug it into an inverter, run this inline with a few of the Electric Superchargers and you should be seeing about an extra 120kw at the treads. Well worth the money

if you steal your dads leaf blower and attach it the the throttle body you will save yourself alot of money. works better in some cases as when im done driving and my engine bay is dusty and s**t everywhere. i just use the already attached leafblower and clean her out :)

works great with the added fake turbo whisle on the exhaust :)

How many shiftkits are you putting in? Only two? You'd need at least four with that much iron.

thats just stupid.. if your not going to give helpfull advice then dont give any advice at all..
theres no way a leaf blower would fit in an engine bay and even if it did, piping and fitting it into the airbox will be a ball breaker unless you can hook it up straight into the throttle body, and then have the electric supercharger set up on the leaf blower but then again too much mucking around

in regards to the shiftkits, since im running a c10 with a massive high stall i can only fit 2 shift kits or else the big a** cam gets in the way.. if i can relocate the battery and use add jet coolers and a bigger oil sum then just maybe..
well see how we go with two for now

Just posting a report on this.

No noticeable power increase when I activated the 12,000 rpm fan (probably due to torque limiting and s**t). But the air filter that it's housed in, does give me a slight power increase and the engine runs a lot smoother and sounds better when being revved. Some heads have turned with dumb looks on their faces lol

Overall, I think I'll just disconnect it and just let the fans that are in it spin with the natural airflow for now. Maybe later once I've done some mods I might switch it on and see if it actually does anything other than make a loud noise lol
