That piece has been posted here before. Its nothing more than a pinwheel in a tin can. It wont increase your hp a bit. In fact, It'll probably decrease hp.

A good turbo-encabulator produces twice the gains that POS will.

I am sad to admit that I fell for this SCAM years ago, and it didn't work at all. That puny fan cannot push a fly off of it's path, nevermind acting like a turbo. SAVE YOUR $ FOR SOMETHING THAT IS REAL. Wouldn't the car manufacturers like Toyota, Gm, and Ford be all over this amazing new technology and offer it on their cars? :r oflol::rolleyes3:

Nope, I sucked it up and blamed myself for being so stupid! After all, "Who is the more foolish? The fool or the fool who follows him?" --Guess the movie quote game!!!!

Sounds like you love movies. Should have at least reported it to Ebay to keep others from making the same mistake.

It's unfortunate that there are people so willing to take advantage of the less informed. Last weekend I stopped by our local flea market to get an LED stern light for my boat. While I was there, I saw a guy selling ratchet straps for $12. Problem is, that those very same straps sell in our local Dollarama for $2. They even had the Dollarama packaging with the labels torn off! Unreal, eh?

It actually became a banned item on Ebay shortly after I discovered it's uselessness, so my reporting it would have been moot.

It seems that it is back on ebay in a different form, though. I was building a DSM Eclipse, and back then these things were advertised for cars, not karts...

Okay... "So you see, Lonestar- Evil will always triumph, because good is dumb!"
Any takers?

"I said across her nose, not Up it!" Very good! A personal favorite of mine, too.
