SLP muffler bearings are a must with that supercharger or you'll blow your blinker fluid reservoir!

If you look at things from a pure theoretical standpoint it would be possible to get a small SHORT gain from some sort of electrical boost device BUT it would have to suck a lot of battery power and then the system would need time to recover.
The alternator simply doesn't output enough energy to compress air at the volumes an engine ingests so you would need the battery to store energy till it is needed on demand.

I understand that the "electric superchargers" on the market are just fans meant to separate a fool from their money. Just think folks should go the extra distance and understand why something does or does not work.

They have electric superchargers and they work but they also make the trunk out of battery's to power the thing.

It just comes down to searching the forum and using common sense. Turbo kits and superchargers cost thousands. A electric supercharger for $30 or one that looks just like the $30 one for a even more expensive amount is too good to be true.

If you really want gains, get you one of those turbo whistles for your exhaust tips. Adds an instant 100 rwhp on a w body. If you have a y pipe and install 2 you will be pushing an extra 300!
