Default Air intake with fan??

So today at work I was talking with a coworker and on his 1992 Jimmy he found this air intake tube with an electric fan (or cork screw fan) that force feeds air into his vehicle, almost just like a supercharger would. Any idea what this guy is talking about and has anyone seen something like this for a mustang? It sounds really interesting.

There are electric super-chargers, but they only come on at WOT. They
are hard to gauge, because even a V6 can pull in 1200 CFM at WOT, and
finding one that will create even 2lbs of boost is not easy, or cheap.
Do not waste your time with it, buy a tuner, and add the HP that way.

Alright, thanks for the info. I just never heard of one before except those cheap turbine fans you can add that are useless and can even hurt power.

Those turbine inserts are a total waste of time.




The problem is, 12V is not really enough to drive a good electric supercharger, so those
ones you find on eBay are mostly crap. The pictured electric motor isn’t the rinkified-dinkified
12V ones you find on eBay, but rather requires a 48V system. Compressing air takes an awful
lot of energy, and that’s what’s made electric systems so difficult to develop.Most batteries and
conventional car electric systems simply can’t provide the volume of needed power quick enough
to drive an electric supercharger. That’s why electric superchargers tend to use large supercapacitors,
which can store energy and then output a lot of electrical energy very rapidly.

So, you don't simply want to force air in, you have to force compressed air in, in order for it to
be effective.

Pretty soon, there will be electric assist on turbos to eliminate lag.
