Like many of us, I would like to increase the "Oomph" on my 92 Subaru Loyale. I have a K&N air filter which helps a little, and will soon be wrapping the exhaust with insulating header wrap to reduce the exhaust restriction and engine compartment temp.
I wondered about a supercharger (blowing more air into the engine) and wondered why I can't make a high-powered electric blower that forces more air into the engine?
I did a search and found a company that is making an electric supercharger:
What do you think?
Can we figgure out a way to make our own?

These are a gimmick, and a pretty silly one at that.

Why, that's like having a mouse fart down your intake.
I bet you really get your $300.00 worth with that!

If an electric blower could do any good, car makers would have used them long ago as a cheap "turbo" like device, given it some fancy name, and jacked the price of the car up 2 or 3 thousand..... Just one more drain on your car's already overloaded electrical system.
You would get more from just the K&N filter by itself, cause you wouldn't have that silly fan motor, and blades restricting your intake path.

it could be turned on and off witha switch, but tou would have to enrichen the fuel to keep it from running lean and getting hot.
suppose you could wire up some sort of injector, as ling as you had enough psi behind the whole fuel system.
a wastegate could be fashioned ffom some sort of spring valve, the boost could be controlled with a potentiometer.
just some ideas.....
