    A leaf blower seems to give about 15-20 hp on a dyno with out extra fuel added, so unless this little fan is forcing more air than a leaf blower (not likely with the size of those wires), the claims of any hp gain, let alone the 76hp on an Escalade, are completely false.

    Power requirements alone to run the 900 watt motor are quite a bit more than they have wiring for (900 watts / 12 volts = 75 amps -- 6 to 8 gauge wire going to the battery when they have maybe 14, but probably 16 gauge wire actually attached to the fan.)

    I suspect the normal engine airflow is going to be turning that fan faster than the motor is at anything above idle (thus restricting air flow and lowering hp)
