Idea Re: Electric Supercharger for $300US

i have a magic sock and i will sell it for 90 quid, it gives an extra 5 bhp the other sock was better but it got lost in the washing machine. i am not to sure how it works but washing in fairy non bio has somthing to do with it. i will get some graphs from my toaster in the morning. it's true you know. i need to get me a money making web site and how on earth do the goon's selling 12w superchargers on ebay get good feedback.

Had this discussion on another forum, specifically about the e-RAM fan:

Now, according to my calculations this is worth about 2-3hp...

BUT I can't believe that it can maintain this pressure right the way through the rev-range - most likely only up to 2k or 3k (can't back this up becuase they don't state the actual cf/m rating of the fan, but based on the power consumption this is my estimate)...

AND it has a 781W (0.781kW) fan, which by the time you factor in alternator efficency actually costs you about 1.4hp to run.

So, if you want to add around 0.6-1.6hp from idle up to 3k-ish then go for it!!

Don't think I'll bother myself.
