Yeah, has been posted before and everybody just laughed at it. Probably not even worth 50 bucks. If you search, I'm sure you'll find something.

hey...just in this guys defense, he was asking if anybody currently had it and if they had any opinions on it. Last I checked, this is something that changes from time to time. Not to mention that doing a search for this particular topic pretty much finds nothing but people who have never tried the product that are flaming it. Personally, I wouldn't mind knowing if someone on here has tried it as well. No harm in asking...And besides, it's not like this guy is a n00b who has never been told about the search function before...sheesh!

Yep, Yep, there has been lots of talk but no one has installed it or at least admitted to it. Maybe someone will do it and post their findings. I seriouly doubt it would do anything or we would all have one already.

Ok, here is something I got of the E-Ram website. You tell me if it makes sence.



<< The eRAM is very efficient in moving lots of air flow (CFM) at small pressures, where traditional turbo/superchargers are very good at making pressure, but need extreme speeds to match flow rates of most engines. >>



Now I'm no expert but as far as I understood how turbos/superchargers worked is that they have to move a lot of air to create pressure, i.e. Boost. Now the E-Ram only makes 1/2 PSI and a turbo would make around 6 PSI. Isn't the whole point of a turbo/supercharger is to create a positive pressure on the intake, thus on the intake stroke more air is forced (hence forced induction) into the chamber to alow more fuel to be burned? How is 1/2 PSI going to do that?

Please correct me if I'm wrong.
