    Anyone ever used those so called "superchargers" in their air intakes that are suposed to create a vortex. They look like a cylinder with a small fan in it. I've seen that they can increase mileage by 33% and increase horsepower as well. I already have a k&n and was wondering if anyone had seen a slight performance boost in their intake.

    They market the CFM but dont mention the boost (where your power will come from). Inevitably, it will help, though not nearly as much as advertised. Unfortunately, you will probably have to upgrade your alternator (which would end up being counterproductive) as well as your fuses and electrical distribution setup.

    The biggest gripe besides no noticeable power change was electrical problems/fires and noise.
