Sounds to much like a scam to me. "Will work on all years/models of celica". Surely over time toyota would of made different changes to their engines and all. Not to mention the difference between different years of celica's my old 90 had a 1.4 or a 1.6 in it, can't really remember and my '00 has a 1.8 in it and the engines look TOTALLY different. People like him should be drug out in the street and beaten.

Ya, the eletric superchargers do not work. In a lot of cases it can even rape you of power due to it using your cars battery.

You could prolly gain more power using a gas powered snow blower!

i don't know enough to say its NOT legit (although i still doubt it)

but then again..that's enough reason for me to not even consider it.

gets power from your throttle bodies & 12v battery? sorry, but i don't THINK that would be near enough power to force significant amounts of air into your engine...if the thing does work it'd probably only be strong enough to force enough air into your engine to increase whp by about 2 or 3 horses.

i don't like the sound of it, personally thumbsdown

Yeah, Horsepower costs money. Hell, even a good Intake costs like $200. Some people think that there is cheap power that works. There really isnt. There is no magic fan for $150 that will give you that good of gains if any. Prolly about the cheapest mod I can think of is possibly pullies that will give you gains.

pulleys are cheap (about 70-80 dollars), but they only give about a 1-2 whp gain.

the cheapest horse-per-dollar mod is, hands down, nitrous. it's not 'cheap', just the cheapest way to get an average wet-system setup of 30 shots (horses)

It works just like a Turbo...except, it bolts on in the middle of your Intake. Or, right before the Intake manifold. They can add power...but not much. As someone else said, it kinda does work like a throttle body spacer...only a little bit better! Don't get it though. Thre is nothing more rice than that. thumbsdown

they put a computer sized fan in there... if anything it would make you lose power.
