Yes it's bullshit.

Thomas Knight is the only reputable manufacturer of Electronic Superchargers. And they most definitely cost more than $80. Thomas Knight

The general rule of thumb is, if the auto manufacturers themselves dont offer a product on thier vehicles, it doesnt work.
Have you ever seen a factory vehicle with these electric superchargers? Me either.
Dont waste your money. Buy a chip or a NOS kit.

you can build one of those yourself. First you need an air intake system. All you're doing is forcing more air into your gas mix. Go to any marine store look for a inline blower ($35). Go to home depot get 2 PVC to clay couplings from the plumbing section. You're just going to cut that into your in take line. Wire up a low voltage switch to the blower. It will increase the rate at which air is sucked in once you flip the switch.

Even if it did work. You would need a major fuel boost to keep the system from going LEAN, and burning up the pistons. That is, if your computer doesn't shut the whole fuel/air system down in the first place, due to the MAP, OXY, and other sensors being thrown off completely.

In other words, don't buy it.

When was the last time Ford or GM offered a chip or a NOS kit?



Reading comprehension..
"GENERAL rule"
But to answer. SVT Cobra's, I would bet, are not using the factory ECU code. The Vettes use a more aggresive ECU coding then the Camaro's did too I would bet. Then you can compre the Z06 to the standard Vette. The rule applies in regards to the rinky dink shit on the market, like Tornado fuel boosters and gimmick HP gains. Its well known and documented that chips and NOS boost horsepower. They also dont cost 30 bucks like the crap on Ebay or off TV. Because to get real HP you have to spend real money.
Believe it or not, it IS in the auto manufacturers best interest to implement products which wouild improve the economy/performance of a car. A prime example is those Tornado intakes that improve milage. Dont you think if auto manufacturers could improve the milage with 5 bucks in plastic intake add ons they'd be all over it?
