If you’re like the rest of us, interested in enhancing your car’s performance, then I’m sure that you’ve heard of the Electric Supercharger kits. These are usually cheap and claiming that they will give you more HP (Horse Power) that can reach up to 10+hp 😆 . Well, I’ve decided to write this post to tell you all that this does NOT work. Take a look at this:

This is an example of an electric supercharger kit which claims to save your fuel, enhance your car’s power and give you a faster acceleration. Well, don’t believe everything you read. These are called "leaf blowers" 😆 because they simply can’t provide your engine with the required amount of air that a real supercharger does. The funny thing about these electric superchargers is that they normally cost less than $100. So, how the hell BMW engineers skipped adding such an important feature to their high-tech engines? I’m sure they didn’t think about this idea LOL! .

Anyway, if you want to read about real superchargers that can really push your car’s performance, then you will need to read this and this. Please pay attention to the pricing on these bad boys. They usually cost thousands of dollars and this explains why they’re not installed in all standard cars. Enjoy and sorry if I have disappointed you in finding a cheap and easy way to boost your car’s performance 😀

    Believe it or not, but I heard about it too many times and many ppl were believing it.

    The idea itself makes sense, but what almost everyone misses is how weak these devices are and that they will not be able to provide the engine with the amount of air required to boost its performance.
