    Do these actually work? - Turbocharger fan upgrade??

    Hi,
    After searching ebay for prices on a vectra inlet pipe i came across this fan inlet thingy? from what i gather they sit in the inlet pipe and spin as the natural vacuum from the engine forces it to spin and then in generates boost in theory.

    i was wondering if they actually work or are they a waste of money? (lind below)

    Cheers

    Do the math.

    1.8 litre 6000 rpm's ...

    How many litres of air does it have to deliver just to keep up with the engine ... It needs to produce more to make pressure..

    This one is just about as effective as the IAT resistor they tried to con people into buying a few years ago..

    the ones that spin on the power of the air alone are absloute rubbish!!!
    i will admit i had one in my car, and i had to replace the airflow meter with in 6 days!!!
    BUT, i h ave seen one in one of my mates cars that if you push the accelerator, it spins on a small electric motor, and it really works, if you go full taps that thing screams!!!!! and the motor really does feel alot more powerfull!!!
    if you want a cheep and nasty small power boost, have a google at that!!!
