Default electric supercharger for 2.5 rs

I went to electricsupercharger.com and I was wondering if I could put one of these puppies on my car. I have a cai and full 2.25 exhast. this is what ive been looking for something easy to install and gives me a minor amount of boost. I dont want a turbo because this is my daily driver but i want a lil boost just fo when i pull up next to an is300 or something. what do you guys think? I know its for real because i saw one installed on a 2000 prelude

personally I would go to to a marine store and buy the same thing there for half the cost. the consensous around here tho is that they really dont do much for performance, and in somecases its actually bad for it. but hey go for it and have it dynoed and prove us all wrong

Personally, I don't believe it. It could be true but I seriously doubt it. I went to the website and saw it but can't really believe it.

While it may move 1000 cfm, Can it move this ON TOP OF the amount of air the engine is actually sucking in at 5000 rpm? I doubt it. In fact, I don't believe it.

Look at the electric supercharger I showed you. That thing actually works BECAUSE it is a supercharger, it just uses motors to spin versus belts. And it uses an ungodly amount of electricity to do so. That little fan barely uses any energy.

I've actualy heard that the E-Ram is one of the few electric superchargers that works.

It isn't much boost >2 PSI but would probably give ya about 15hp or so.

Its your money. 5hp isnt much for $300 plus in my eyes.

If it works, and you can dyno prove it, so much the better.

On question though on the dyno charts I have is, "Were the dyno runs with the E-ram installed and off, or were they with the E-ram not installed, and then installed and run?" Because if it they dyno run was with the E-ram installed but off, then it was a 5hp restriction! I don't care what they say, anytime you shove something into the intake, its a freaking air restriction.

And for the proof of 1 psi, they have a picture of 1 psi WHEN THE THROTTLE IS CLOSED! They admit it themselves. They don't (at lease I couldnt find it) show picture proof of 1 psi while full throttle.

http://www.electricsupercharger.com/lab.shtml

Hell, when my throttle is closed, I get about 40 psi!

I understand you loud and clear. What I am saying is that it very well MAY NOT DO SQUAT!!! I understand your want for some more power, why do you think I supercharged my own vehicle? But I also know alot about reducing restriction and boost because of this, therefore I am skeptical and attempting to save you from possibly getting ripped off.

Underdrive pulleys release, or give back power, but don't make it. But it is general consensus that they are worth the money. However, the cheaper EBAY underdrive/lightweight pulleys are often half or more the price, and just as good. You just have to make sure you are buying from a reputable dealer. I bought a lightweight underdrive pulley and was very happy with it. I paid about $70 including shipping.
