Oh, you have GOT to be kidding me! I hate to see the poor sucker that falls for this BS. Some company out there is putting out an "e-supercharger" as they call it. Basically a vacuum Here's the link:

TorqueWind

And here is the ebay item they are pushing off of Soob owners. They say it pushes 240 CFM into the manifold. Sure, great. But at what PRESSURE?! The volume won't matter if there is no pressure to it! Yegads, what baloney.

The write up on the Larger XP-9000 states;

Now, for those of you out there who are looking to gain some SERIOUS POWER, TorqueWind Industries is proud to present, the MOST powerful TorqueWind Turbocharger made. The TorqueWind XP 9000, is designed exactly like the Original TorqueWind turbo. It has a sleek 3" inline design. The difference is this bad boy pushes 900CFM!!! That is over 1 WHOLE PSI of boost!!!



:D

Heard about a company who did a dyno test on one of those with a Chevy 350. Worked pretty good at like, 2,000 RPM.. But they hit about 4500 RPM or something, and the fan blew apart, was sucked into the motor, and destroyed the motor. Not something I'd want to happen on my soob!

BWAHAHAHAHA!!!

That 1 whole psi of boost will almost make up for the extra strain on the alternator due to the drain on the battery!!! :burnout:
