If you can actually get one of these things to work , then in the words of Rudyard Kipling, "You're a better man than I am, Gunga Din!"

Re: turbonator!!!!!!!!!

In theory it ought to give a benefit but I don't know how much you'll notice. All it's doing is pressurising the airbox, so that intake resistance is reduced. If you can find a 12v fan and use that to blow into the inlet pipe, then that'll gice you a way to gauge the likely effect.
