My most recent dyno with the electric supercharger, I bought it off ebay for 23.95+shipping so total it was somewhere around 56-63 dollars. It was made in Japan, so it's defiantly JDM. Another option is rigging up a power inverter into your car and putting a hair dryer into your throttle body in place of your intake and setting it up to a switch so you can turn it from low to high.

I was comtemplating this idea for a while. I'd get an extremely high CFM electric blower that i can switch on and modify blower speed to create full boost all the time. basically hooking it up to an electric motor intstead of combustion motor. And im talking a blower the size of a Paxton mustang blower at 10 psi with no lag ever. You probalbly can utilize a centrifugal supercharger on a 12V electric motor. Now space is an issue and a 12v eletric motor can get quite heavy.

Not really, to go technical, one would have to run the math on how much air (in CFM) the engine would need to produce positive pressure, and then find an electric blower that could sustain that (they do exist), and then notice that there is no way the car's battery could supply that much electricity for anything longer than 5 to 8 seconds.

In short, it is technically feasible (yes, I have done all the math and part hunting before). But, you'd have 5 seconds of boost and then 15 minutes of recharge time. Even with an absurdly high powered alternator and some insanely expensive caps, we'd still be talking 20 seconds of boost (and low boost at that, think 2 to 4 psi) and a 30 minute recharge.

Yeah, I'm an electronics geek, and once upon a time the idea interested me.

It can work, but it's not practical, at all.

My buddy has a fan he used for cars on the dyno. They rigged it up to the intake and it made 11whp on different cars. So yes, it works, but it's not practical.

why not just go full ghetto and use a leaf blower? i mean, craftsman claims 300mph on their big leaf blowers. imagine THAT kind of air going into your intake. lol. watch youtube vids on that ****. actually quite impressive on some cars, for what its worth. as for the electric supercharger, stay away from them. they are junk.

That's great and all, but you're still going to have parasitic load from the several alternators you'll require to keep that thing spinning.

More people need to take a few college physics classes or at least remember this: You can't get something from nothing. Little input energy means, little (even less) output energy.

In lamens terms, this thing ISN'T going to work
