Try it! On sale at $199. Post up and give us the report.

Here is what customers have to say:

..”The first thing you will notice if you turn on the supercharger manually using your car battery is that it will want to fly away, like a JET engine. It is very power powerful and unlike any other electric fan you have seen…”

So, the FAQ says it has a lifetime warranty....
But if you leave it on for more than 30 seconds, you void the warranty.

Specs said it is a 900 watt motor. That takes more than 60 amps to run. Your alternator will suck up horse power. That's kind of dumb anyway.
Pull your head off and have a shop mill off .050.

They are trying to pack more air into your engine using a motorized fan. The fan requires 900 watts of power to run which has to be supplied by your charging system. The correct way to do this is to use a turbocharger. Check those out.

Complete junk, please don't waste your time on it.
Beware of any "electric superchargers" or anything with the name Vortex.

For 199, why dont you go pick up some headers or carb rebuild. You'd get way more with that.

FJforty, what will that do for the motor? I know nothing about motors

Milling the head or shaving the head will increase the compression ratio thus increasing hp and torque. If you're going to shave the head you might as well hog out your intake and exhaust ports, add a lumpier cam, and add headers. The better an engine breathes the more power you can make.

Personally, a SBC or small block Ford will give you a bigger bang for your buck.
