That is a HUGE WAIST OF MONEY.

Hope I spelled it out for you good enough.


That fan would never provide the CFM's needed to provide for any boost. It probably restricts airflow if anything.

What a f*cking JOKE. It says...for our Camaro:
"This product of Chevrolet division will instantly improve the horsepower in your sedan not to mention the unsurpassed overall performance."

Really now...gotta love those Gen5 Camaro SEDANS! LOL

I like the sentence structure and the proper use of grammar in this add. Most definitely from overseas and probably from our good friends and ally's, China.

you could spend about $20.00 and get a bilge fan for a boat and add it to your intake for the same results. LOL

It's misleading for sure but don't think a law suit would do anything because it say's "Chevrolet Division" which could mean their Chevrolet division meaning their products for a Chevrolet, it doesn't say GM's Chevrolet division. Either way it's misleading.

No it says "product of Chevrolet division", implying it is made by Chevrolet.

I completely understand and agree with what you're saying. The point I am making is that usually, when GM or Chevrolet distinguishes between their divisions they use terminology like "General Motor's Chevrolet Division" or Chevrolet Motor Division". Although it pretty much means the same as we interpret it, I'm not sure if a court of law would but then, I'm a mechanic/machinist not an attorney.

Is this a joke? I mean really? OP: i hope i dont offend....BUT...

anyone who would buy this POS ...is well......not too bright. Looks like a damn duct fan for the house!

OP: look up a schematic of a REAL supercharger. You WILL see why everyone is cracking on this.


I really cant believe someone would even TRY and sell that joke. The same note, i cant believe someone would sell this joke.

This would be perfect for Jamie. There's no way he could do damage to his car using this. Of course I use that term very loosely because after all, it is Jamie.

Good luck suing them. Like said, this is coming from China for sure. Just look at the poor grammar and idiotic description. "John Cusack" Lol, they must have just gotten that movie over there this year!
