A unicorn bragging from under the air filter?
 
28% FE gain this site claims for this supercharger. It takes just seconds to install they say. I know some folks claim superchargers can improve FE, better than a turbo I have been told. But wouldn't it need to deliver power at a low RPM? Could this really deliver 28% at 2000 RPMs on a Civic?

I'm sorry.
Tell me your joking........

This is a P O S. It is not a supercharger. (unless you really are completely clueless)
This does not compare to a turbocharger..
This compares to a waste of post.

Looks a lot like the Tornado fuel saver. Beurk.

Yup. Same one, it seems. And there are bunches of them at different prices and with different names and slightly different appearances. Little whirring unicorns.

Might be good for juicing grapes maybe.

Not sure who says that?!?

Anyway nice steaming unicorn heap you found there :)

"zero friction ball bearing"
that 28% bit
the extra hp bit

It gets worse, you can see it is powered by the incoming airstream, it does not power the airstream, fail. The words coming out of the guys mouth is complete crap.

I have a friend, older, in his 60s, who is an engineer and used to design engines. Now he works in alternative fuels. Seems to have made a lot of money in life this way, which does not make him right all the time of course (ha!) but you remember his opinions to test later with reading and others (like this forum). The opinion about superchargers is his.

Great. I'll bundle yours with mine. I have this brilliant idea... I'll stack 4 of these for a 112% FE increase for just about $120... and more HP! Yippie... :D
