Was watching the show "two guys garage" on speedvision today and they briefly mentioned this gizmo that is for forced induction vehicles that it will increase HP up to 100hp. They claim that this inrease in power is due to a drastic reduction (about 100 degrees F less) in intake temperature. I can't say I believe all this.<p>Go here and click on "Supercharger Accessories"<br><A HREF="http://www.andersonfordmotorsport.com/catalog/catalog.htm" TARGET="_blank">http://www.andersonfordmotorsp...g.htm</A>

That is an air to water FMIC. Tis just an intercooler. Yes they can help but on our R's, you won't get anywhere near 100HP with just that. All that marketing speil is just that, hot air. "...up to 100 HP is possible depending on the application, engine, and boost level".
