They are s**t.

They are pretty much a computer fan and if you do somehow fit one up, your motor will probably suck the fan off in a month a chew thru your motor.

Superchargers cost several thousand to instal, not several hundred.

I tried blowing into the tube that usually goes from my bov into my boost gauge and I was able to generate about 0.8 psi of boost, lol :D (but not while the engine is running)
