Electric blowers have always been a hot topic. You always have the laws of physics to deal with. And reliability. No specifications are given in the link as far as CFM and delta P. I suggest TRD.

Hmmm. I'd love to know more about this. Even if the gains are not the same as with a TRD supercharger, the price is right.

from what I can gather, you can go with up to a 500 cfm flow without exceding the MAF's curve. There are generally two types in use, one that only comes on at wot with a microswitch off of the throttle body, and the other a constant on with ignition.

I would be more than will to be the test vehicle.

basically, 500 cfm would hit about 2.5~3 psi boost, which would be mainly available at passing, and full load situations, like hill climbing on slickrock.

I am thinking that this and a summit racing cat system would crank about 20 bhp.

Placing one of these "bilge blowers" on a car is not going to benefit anyone in performance(except maybe air cooled VW owners, who use them to have a continuous flow of air in the heat exchanger system in leu of the stock fan which changes in speed as the motor revs, thus keeping hot air moving in the car).
Imagine using your coleman battery operated air pump to inflate an air matress vs using compressed air at 200PSI. Once you get to so much pressure (2-4 PSI)in the matress, the fan in the pump cannot overcome the resistance of that pressure due to how the pump works. The compressed air would give you a completely full air matress up to 200PSI (if it could hold it).
Ask any old mechanic about the comparisom between these bilge pumps and a S/C, and they will tell you the same thing. $75 and $3000 is a big price jump, and for good cause. All you get from these on your motor is current draw.

Don't waste your money. Unless you have a vintage VW and want more output out of your heating system.

true on the bilge pump. picture for comparison only. there are different blowers that are dc, and much higher wattage, and quite a bit more in the money department.

I couldn't find the leaf blower induction thread from the LCML a few years ago, but somebody did post a link to this video. Pretty funny.

From the same site is this video of a police chase. Enjoy!

Check out the Turbonator! LOL!

Then there's the e-RAM Electric Supercharger.

Some good discussion here .
