Go to one of the fleaBay listings and read the sellers feedback. You will get all the answers you are looking for there.

I have a neighbor across the street with one of those awesome StageIII Electric Superchargers on his '04 Civic. It's all stock except the blower and a No Fear sticker. He said he crushed a 350z and a C5 Vette. It's soooooo sick.

They're only $350 so you've got nothing to lose. My neighbor swears they're legit... here's one specially designed for a Miata:

You should get it!

And those leafblower video's are awesome. I thought it would be totally worth it to install one under the hood and run the starter cord through the firewall so I could fire it up at stoplights when dudes looked like they wanted to race. Imagine the respect I'd get!

DPB i have tried a leaf blower and it did do some gains not in my miata though the sounds my alternator was making made it clear to me that is was not a sustainable scenario. But if you want to sap all the power from your alternator and battery, and gain maybe 30 hp or so then go for it. Me I am alot happier with my 200$ nos kit i just got done putting together.

I AM NOT KIDDING ABOUT THIS!!! I went outside to get the paper this morning and my neighbor was just pulling out of the driveway so I asked him to take me for a spin. WOW!!!! I couldn't believe it. I was thinking about challenging him to a race, but not now! That thing pulled so hard in 3rd that my vision went blurry for a second. The whine from his supercharger is louder than a shuttle launch, so I was really glad when we didn't pass any cops. What a RUSH! I'll never look at eBay products the same.

Actually, I haven't been "randomly selected" in about a year... but I've kinda been on an anti-stupid campaign, and this thread needed some. I also ******* HATE IT WHEN NOOBS START THREADS AND THEN DON'T BOTHER TO COME BACK FOR A FEW DAYS TO READ THEM, OR THEY DO LOGIN BUT DON'T BOTHER TO REPOST IN THE THREAD TO LET US KNOW WHAT THEY DECIDED OR TO SAY THANKS... even in a retarded thread like this.

“If you need a boost and can't afford a real turbo or supercharger conversion, this product is for you.”

They spelled “brain” wrong. It is spelled b-r-a-i-n not b-o-o-s-t. Dumb asses...

I'm sure it wasn't this crap, but I was next to a Corvette the other night that was egging me on to run him by cutting in what sounded like a heavy duty electric s/c and squealing tires.

There was too much traffic to play, and he took off like a shot with a high pitched whine from the s/c.

Not to mention that it isn't additive. You don't increase flow by adding a restriction.

True. 0 psi in the intake manifold at redline would actually give you gains.
