well they need to create a rich mix to run, so what does that mean? it means your fuel economy will get even worse. and what happens when it switched off? the jeep continues to run on that rich mix thats what, lol

Def not worth the cash. If anything you might get a little more torque out of it but not the 45hp. Any way you could build your own for alot less.

Duh - it's a centrifical fan, housed in ABS plastic, with a small motor drawing enough power to where a 16 gauge wire won't burn down; what'd yout hink it was gonna do. You might use it to dry your hair, or vent a bathroom... if that.

Well i'm pretty dumb i'll admit, but the theory behind it makes sense... more air more power... although your right that fan can't do jack

The only developer who seems to have respect in the area of a electric supercharger is Thomas Knight. But nothing for a 4.0L engine... Too much electric required to make any kind of substantial boost... Also I don't think its really worth the cost

If you were dumb you wouldn't have asked the question before buying.
Standard engine driven turbos and blowers can be easily adapted to any engine and give you far better performance than that second link unless you're building a dragster, there's really no majic to em.

I bought one of these 2 years ago to install it to my Nissan Maxima and it caused BAD idle, it would go down to 400 rpm then it would shoot up to 2000 then it would drop down to 400 again. Once in a while it would die out. I removed it and no problem any more. If you shut it off while its attached it becomes a bottle neck for the intake so then it looses a lot of power. Note i say looses. BTW no difference in power just my wallet got a bit thinner.

Then i installed it on my 1.8 96 Miata. No difference in power! I guesed it should make some difference since its a smaller engine. Again it caused bad idle and even some noticble powerloss. The engine felt like it was choking and it felt slugish and not responsive like it was with out it. After i removed it it felt better again.

I installed it on my dads 03 Tiburon just for kicks and it also got bad idle and felt like it was choking the engine.

It made no power gain in any of the 3 cars i've tested it on. It only caused problems.

My current use for it is it sitting in my closed. My future plans for it are a blower for my overclocked cpu on my computer which may get replaced by a watercooling system.
