    They are absolute bollocks mate lol it's an electric motor spinning a fan which is meant to push more air in to your engine, probs will hinder performance if anything

    would be good to see them rolling roaded to be able to compare them to the standard airbox... iv got a feeling they would probably be worse...

    I'd love to buy and send them a letter saying that if this doesn't increase my performance more than my current induction kit il report you to trading standards, then test them one after another on a rolling road

    Looks like water bottles from a kids water gun have been glued together and painted silver tbh.

    Just to clarify the ones that have been sold already are more than likely themselves with different accounts in an attempt to make you think people are buying them.

    Don't fall for shit like this, just use common sense.

    All you have to remember is that proper supercharges / turbos are manufactured to extreme tight tolerances (hence their price)

    So lets basically fit a low quality fan to the air intake and watch the blades eventually break apart and send the shrapnel into the air intake and shatter your valves and pistons.

    Instead buy one of these and get this result
