MIMOUSA Electric Supercharger - Air Intake Blower

http://www.mimousa.com/info/blowerinfo.asp

I can buy it for $249

I'm wondering what it will do for my 2000 Escalade (stock 5.7L 350 CI - HP=255), this device claims a 15-25 HP increase. It looks similar to the open air intake products with the addition of a fan blower to force more air into the intake. I replaced my stock exhaust with a Flowmaster SUV (50) cat bak system and I'm lookin for little bit more power! I have 95K miles (replace engine at 90K miles).

The Escalade has real supercharger kits available for it, albeit at $4K+installation, as well as a number of other mods available. That's the nice part about that Vortec engine.

Here is one link (not an endorsement): http://escaladepower.stores.yahoo.net/whipsupkitfo.html

I have not seen a review of this type of electric blower product on an Escalade. However, my intuition is this would lightly pressurize the intake at idle, when it is not desirable, and to actually be a flow hinderance at high rpm, while also giving some chance of ingesting broken fan parts.

If you do purchase the MIMOUSA unit, please post before and after acceleration times at the track, or dyno, or G/tech or other accelerometer results. I am always interested to hear proof that things work or don't work.

I think for around $300 you might try a power programmer type setup next, depending on what other mods you have. Hypertech appears to have a unit for that year. They show dyno results online for later models, but you might email them to see what result they got on the 2000s.

In a word, "GARBAGE".

There is no way this (heater/defroster) fan can produce enough air volume, to develop the pressure needed to produce positive boost.

How does it provide you the approximately 25% increase in fuel that is required to produce the power increase claimed?

This is an old scam. Do not be fooled by such ridiculous false claims.

Do some reading on how supercharging works, and you will better understand the requirements to do this major change to an engine.

Freeing up the exhustsystem is usually beneficial; in removing the parisitical losses.

I think there are hundreds of these on EBAy for about $69. IF they DO provide a small increase in air flow, the stock fuel system will be able to adjust for it. AFter all, 15 to 25 HP is within the bounds of factory assembly variations. The MAP sensor, and the O2 sensors will make the fuel adjustment.

Let us know how you come out on this,

That is going to be one expensive extention cord.

I'd guess "wireless" is not an option. :P

One of the truly inventive guys around here stuck a turbocharger under his STS

front bumper fascia. That was *way* cool.

That "Leaf Blower" video was great.

Do Honda Civic Clown Cars have a similar fascia? Could you put a leaf blower in there?

Would it be politically inappropriate to ask?

Apologies,

Warren
