    ok guys- before you start to flame hear me out-

    I was on ebay and i found this unique elecric turbo. Now- its not like the other ones- this one is sorta like an electronic fan vs a belt driven fan. its not designed to give horsepower, but rather free-up power you already have. see what i'm saying?

    dyno charts are showing 5 horse at the wheels, and it costs $55

    who's in for a group buy?

    I actually blocked my intake (entirely).

    It added around 15 hp. That's wheel horse power, btw.

    I don't know why more people don't suggest this .. it's the racing way.

    Air is polluted anyway .. why pollute ur engine?! SUCH FOOLISHNESS.

    This Electric Turbo is a godsend .. it gives me hp AND it helps block my intake. It's super sweet. :worthy:
