Mechanicals are identical to a surbo. It works well if you have a k&n cone filter[RX-3800] feeding the air intake

I have seen those magazines in Forum Mall here. I went through them and I didnt understand a **** that was there in them...it was too much of technical detail, and they cost Rs.150 or more.
But the most awesome thing in them was that, the mags had shown various modded vehicles and most of them looked good mouthwatering infact. All of them were accompanied by mouthwatering girls!!!!

Hey Guys,

I have access to one here in Bombay and its also for sale. Let me know whenever you guys wanna test it. Its not the same brand but the same product. Cost me approx US$300/-. Not at all worthwhile .

Simple,

Friend in America = access to dyno.

Tell him if his car puts out 15hp or more (from the claimed upto 35hp), you will pay for the dyno day.
If not, he pays!

i remember watching it on the Infomercials a few times ..
they had a before and after on a dyno ...results varied from vehicle specs to another vehicle specs.. but min boost in power was i think 8horses from a Minivan i think ..
but you see a minivan motor is averagely 2.5L in north america ..
compare that to the average engine size of the cars we drive is 1.3L (???) we can prolly expect 3-4 bhp gains which aint too bad either ..provided it really works ..

we did have a discussion on this ...

Peter,
Please dont even think about getting such a product man ...
Well if it was so easy ppl wud have just attached battery powered blowers to their air intakes and developed that kinda power ....
Cheers

No way I wont go anywhere near it but a lot of people are getting fooled into it so I think we need to do our part right. I am getting 2 pieces from US and let's see if someone can do the testing for us.

Good idea, any one tried that, need to find axial blowers 12V operated and get some specs, someone give me the pressure turbos use?

Its not easy... We had tried doing that with my Gypsy some 8 years back ... I bought a 12V battery operated blower and attached it to the air intake ... But then the gypsy was a carburator driven vehicle where in we increased the jetting size to make the mixture richer as after operating the blower the vehicle ran lean ... But there was a problem ... Since the blower was running at full speed all time we needed to control the rpm of the fan .. So we attached a potentiometer to the 12 volt line which was operated in tandem with the acellerator cable and attached to the accelerator pedal which wud increase the voltage to the blower there by increasing the rpm of the blower fan ... It was a very crude method but then it used to work... Also then there was a guy in Pune by the name of Thamane who wud use metallurgy treatments on spark plug electrodes and increase the efficiency of the spark ... which wud help the combustion of the rich mixture giving additional power....

This was a very CRUDE method but then 8 years back what was available in India ???

Dunno If it is going off topic...
Tell me more about your experiments...
Does MPFI engines take care of them selves on this issue of rich and lean..

If needs to operated in tandem, we can try variable regulators instead of Pots.. they work neat and can have a control of log, linear and antilog patterns if necessary
