I remember the e-charger! Bilge pumps, too! I used to search for stuff for my Prelude and I laughed at everything but OEM parts. I do not know about now, but the e-charger said that it removed 0.5 PSI of vacuum losses (or something) and provided the same amount of actual boost.

I remember someone doing the math of how much air an engine pulls in on its own and linked the manufacturer's specifications on the bilge pumps, not the fantastically unrealistic numbers on eBay. eRacing may make a bilge pump, but at least their claim that it would not fall apart and fly into your engine sounded credible.

Okay, I am going to find that leaf blower engine.
