my friend and i was just discussing yesterday the one for the altima
he mentioned that in the Turbo mag they dynoed a stock @ 108 whp after putting on the elec s/c it was up to 210whp(not sure about the number)
if this is holds true for the celica version then it does sound promising. but thats all the things i know so far. I, also would like to know more facts about this and would it work for an auto???
more info would be great thumbsup

for the amount of current a fan would need to draw to provide that amount of boost your battery would die instently

garbage plain and simple

and that add is faker then pams tits casue thats a lot of power for even a reall supercharger

maybe going from 108 to 110 but the new Air Filter alone does that

hey thats a 20 minute phone call

Sure the gains sound nice, but what about when the electric motor is turned off? From what I was peeking at, it looks like the air Intake is placed in a shitty hot area of the engine bay, so when the electric turbine is off, the power will be less than what you origionaly were putting down.
I wouldn't get it, just get the good'ole gas spun Turbo, it has been time tested.

W3rd.

There is ane electric supercharger out there that does work though. It uses something like 6 car batteries and only lasts for a short boost. grin
