I've been thinking about one of these myself.

Truth is, I've done a bit of research, and personally, I wouldn't go for it.

Reasons being are:

a) They don't provide much boost (air pressure) thus you don;t see much of a gain

b) Why would you want some peice of plastic crap which could easily break off and enter your engine causing major costly damage?

c) They are also a disadvantage as when it is turned off, it disrupts and blocks the air flow into the engine actually causing less air intake.

So consider all these before spending over 140 on one wink

I agree with BMW Joe on this, not realy a good idea, plus you'll end up with a flat battery to boot!

Last year a mag did a review of one, and tested it on a car. Even running, it made less power as it made a bigger restriction than the air it could supply.

People have been asking "are these any good" for a few years since they came out, and the answer is no, they are shite! laugh

This one's meant to work but it's 700. You only get a 15 second hit and it runs off a car battery:

fast car did a test on a similar kit years ago around 1998 and it proved it didn't work, then Redline did a test on a mr2 N\A model and it never made enough pressure for it to work.

why not get one of these and strap it to your intake

If you have a look at their graphs, at 3500rpm the car is producting 75bhp less than std raftl

Then, providing the product is as good as it says, you get a sudden 100bhp increase (Thats going to be nice for traction, gearboxes, ECU to keep up with fueling demands etc whistle )for a whole 15secs raftl

Junk!
