Crap like that gives eBay a bad name.

Talking

You have to admire anyone who puts .89 in the BIN price.

Seriously, do you think one can buy an effective supercharger for under $200?

If so, I will start posting items on EBAY today!

This rascal is supposed to be for Porsches but according to the pic, it looks like it's sitting on a Nissan.

"Nobody puts a massive & complete kit like this together & of this quality". Thank God.

Well, at least he gives you "True Facts" (as opposed to false facts?)

He definitely covers all his legal bases. And is just after a quick profit. That is awesome.

I thought it looked a lot like a fire extinguisher for an aircraft engine? Maybe I'll bolt it on to my Fiero!

Notice how he says 12-43 horsepower to sound like he has dyno tested this peice of crap. Reminds me of the fart fan supercharger I saw once on ebay. The guy took a 12v motor out of a common bathroom fart fan, trimmed the blades, and put it in a rubber pipe case. Claimed it added 5-10 horsepower. In reality, the slow moving blades actually blocked air flow, giving a 10-20 DECREASE in horsepower. This is a classic example of "Internal Rice". Most Rice you see is stickers, screw on wing, false badging, cut springs etc... But this takes it a step further and actually adds a touch of rice to the engine compartment. Whats next? A large picture of a modified engine that you can put under your hood?
