If you ever wondered what the difference is between a turbocharger or supercharger. If you want to do either one to your car but don't know which way to go. Read this article. I though I knew all that I needed to know but I found out a lot of thing I didn't. Definitely worth a read.

Unless I'm mistaken so correct me if I'm wrong, but I think that the motors that are
turbo or super charged have low compression motors by design for reliability reasons..
Our iQ's have a 11.5 to 1 compression ratio, relatively high, and therefore not a good
candidate for this type of upgrade, you'd be asking for trouble.

In my opinion I seriously doubt that it will do much of anything but make some noise. The amount of air that would be sucked into the air intake would be much more than what this little fan would be supplying. In their demo of the air output. It was hardly enough to push a roll of tape down the floor or blow over a 2x4.

First of all I think engine should be reinforced and convert to low compression...and if I was doing it I would look for a manual tranny that fits...call me ignorant but for me CVT's are not made for FI. But hey maybe I am wring right?
