The e-RAM Electric Supercharger is the ORIGINAL, PATENTED, and THE REAL DEAL! Since 1997, e-Racing Motorsports has proven the e-RAM Electric Supercharger at the DYNO and at PRO RACE EVENTS.

How the e-RAM works!

At full throttle, the e-RAM automatically activates to produce 1 psi additional air-pressure to the engine intake. This additional air-pressure results in greater air density reaching the engine. The mild level of boost from the e-RAM is measured by the engine management sensors, and the car's computer (ECU) increases the delivery of fuel to keep the air-fuel ratio at optimum levels.

The e-RAM DOES NOT restrict airflow. When inactive, the e-RAM has the equivalent, unrestricted airflow of a 3 inch intake tube!

While all of this is true, they DO NOT work without the chrome Mercedes license plate, wouldn't want anyone getting their hopes up and not ordering everything they need.

So if I spend 45k on a car, do I get to be a d-bag to all of you? I'm just wondering, because when I make it big, I'm gonna be a total dick wrinkle. I aspire to be like those with cool, expensive cars.

nah, you've already made it to douchebag-dom. However, when you do make it rich, you'll have the joy of following me up on any girl you manage to "G."

you have a source for that little tidbit? ... cause it makes about as much since as a football bat.

I'd take an SLK over one of those any day. Having worked at a Mercedes dealer, I got to drive pretty much everything but the SL 65 AMG. The SLK was, HANDS DOWN, my fav. The Crossfire is neato, but I'm not a huge fan. Interesting looks and re-badged exterior vs. hard-top convertible with authentic German nameplate. I'll take the real roadster. Okay, okay. Its not a "real" roadster, being a bit piggish and more luxurious than a roadster should be, but its dimensions are right. It would make a great cruising and daily car while the Miata makes a great track car, and lastly... The MR2 Spyder would be the weekend backroads twister. Dammit I love convertibles.
