The main issue that has kept me from trying it is,the blower is either on or off. If they ever could find a way to get the rotation to correspond with the drive by-wire system I could be tempted to try.

Did I make myself clear on how "I" would like it to work?

Snake oil ... might as well be a hair dryer for all the good it'll do.

Is this something you want to brag your P-O-R-S-C-H-E has?

I'll also agree and say that it is just a bunch of BS... no one has ever seen dyno results that prove the hp gains that they are claiming...

Sounds fishy to me. I heard if you pack your tailpipe with Extra Crunchy peanut butter that you will gain 8% HP as well as have a nice tasty snack after a long road trip.

That "Blower" looks alot like an electic motor from a ceiling fan. Pushes about the same CFM also! Definitely snake oil and maybe a zepher also.
