Seen a site once on the net cant rember what it was but a search should get what you want. The one I saw was plans for a home built elec s/c where the parts were avalible from the likes of bunnings or most hardware stores. It gave 2lb boost with promises of increased fuel econnomy. Have a look and decide for your self but I doubt it would work.

Electric Supercharger - $20
Ducting and misc - $10
Dyno Time to proove your gain - $150
Look on dyno operators face when he sees that you have a computer fan in your intake - priceless

If you want, Geek Technologies will hook you up with the best of the best fans, but let me assure you a car will not gain anything from it. Cooling your case however, it can do a good job of.

Cheers

lol, theres an articale somewhere on the net, it states that the most eficient supercharger is on a bmw or similar, and it consumes 13kw to drive it... at about 7psi

now, put those numbers into a 12v fan and it becomes quite ridulous to think you could boost your car with it

13000w/13.5v= get this 962A....... hahahaha

even if you ran 1psi, youd be at 137A, you may want another couple of alternators..... and with the efficiency loss of those alternators, youd have less power than before you added the 1psi

This subject has been covered a couple of times on this forum. Do a search and see what you come up with.

The general consensus (spelling??) was that the $$$ could be better spent elsewhere on the car.

Exactly!!!

Claims of improvements even on small engines seem dubious to me, based on the above.
