Oh, it's no secret. We had a thread on here discussing the technicalities. They can flow plenty of cfm, but they can't do that while also generating any boost pressure. It's like putting your hand over the end of a hairdryer. They also flow lots of air at ambient pressure, and almost nothing at 0.1psi (made up number).

Probably ~30cfm with little/no restriction. And then zero at ~0.05psi - just going off my EBM catalogue.
It's probably not even going to have enough flow to stop it from restricting the intake at full throttle.

Well I had an interesting day , I borrowed my mates electric supercharger off his insane Corsa and popped down to screw fix to make a Y pipe out of plumbing pipe and OMG!! It’s insane my car is just so damn fast , I was right up the chuff of a Lamborghini Gallardo on the A40 and I could sense he was wondering WTF when he couldn’t pull away from me.

I now reckon I really do have the fastest RX8 out there.

I hear he also has a zero point energy machine! Must be how he affords the electric superchargers!

Maybe get a couple more
And put them on the exhaust side.
Your getting the air in faster
Putting them on the exhaust will speed up the exhaust flow.

Bit like the works Lancia Intergale that had a Super Charger and. Turbo.

I fitted two at the weekend, one for each rotor and WOW it is amazing, I'd have qualified third for the Hungary GP!!

Car is off the road at the moment as some of the duct tape I'd used to mount them was sucked into the intake (along with a cat, sunflower and a small child's ice cream) but I'll post a video of me whupping some Indy car ass just as soon as my double sided tape arrives from eBay

No, but seriously, put a step-up transformer into the electrical circuit. Something like this: https://uk.rs-online.com/web/p/products ... lsrc=aw.ds will double the voltage into the turbo, and that will double the power gain.

Add solar panels to the roof to handle the increased electrical load.

I’m trying to find one that works off A/C so it will work going forward and backwards.
Only issue I see is that I am going to need a very long extension lead.

At that power level you'd be using so much fuel that you'll need in-flight refuelling

Well after all my racing about and beating normally faster cars I’ve found I’m only getting 7mpg so I’ve been speaking to a chap called John who is going to fit a HHO hydrogen kit for me which will give me approx 45mpg while running at this power.

Did he not tell you about his latest product that harvests the oxygen and carbon in the exhaust gas and injects the oxygen into the combustion chamber directly speeding up the burn and the carbon collector canister is then returned via free post to a carbon fibre manufacturer that pays you £10 per kg.
Mind you it only works apparently if you have Cermit coated rotors, ceramic apex seals and silicone coolant hoses.

I would not fit this on an RX8 as it is not listed in their application details so they would not honour any warranty. Also being only this size it mught get sucked down the inlet pipe!
