                        I actually got that thing off aliexpress last year for $350 and put it on my 1,600cc 4 cylinder engine. The engine was already tuned and already had a few more serious (read : less shitty) intake and exhaust mods that actually made more power. bone stock dyno readings for the engine were 94 whp / 109 bhp. Dyno readings before the "turbo" were 133 whp / 150 bhp. After I installed the "turbo", something interesting happened. The peak power dropped from 133 whp to 123 whp, a 10 hp loss at full throttle, which means the "turbo" was obviously choking the intake at full throttle. It was sucking in less air than the naturally aspirated engine would have done on its own. However, I actually saw some power gains in the lower rev range, especially at low to mid rpm. I gained up to 5 hp (FIVE!!!) between 2,000 and 4,000 rpm. Above 4,000 though, the power dropped to below original "NA" readings. My conclusion is that this "turbo", while it does look somewhat nice when properly installed is not suitable for any engine above 1,000 cc. It did indeed ram a bit more air into my engine than what it could suck in naturally at low rpm, but it was simply not powerful enough to keep up at higher rpm and ended up choking out the engine. Either use it only in smaller engines where it won't impede the air flow, or what someone could try to do would be to stick a much bigger motor behind the impeller and connect it to a 24 volt battery. I'm pretty sure the design itself is fine, the only problem is the weak motor. Perhaps a more powerful motor would make it have enough power to create enough pressure to drive air flow in a reasonably big engine at high speed.
                        Would be worth trying.
                        I'd try that myself, but I resold the thing after 3 months for about $250. I didn't wanna scam anyone, so I made sure to let them know they probably wouldnt see any increase at full throttle, but someone still bought it anyway xD

                          Wow thanks so much for the info, i was actually wondering how it would do on my 1.5. This clears alot, again thanks for the info

                                It's not likely that the "turbo" would work on any car engine. With basic thermodynamics of an adiabatic process, you can work out that in order to create e.g. 1 bar of boost on a 2-liter engine you'd need more than 5 kW of power (assuming that the geometry of the turbo is very efficient). No car battery can supply that for more than a couple seconds. It would be interesting to see how much power that thing draws. At least it sounds like a hairdryer.

                                even on a 4 cylinder engine it's too weak. It could work on a sub-1,000 cc engine though. Or perhaps change the electric motor for something bigger and hook it to a 24 volt battery with a lot more amps.

                              sad thing is people who buy this crap don`t read or watch reviews and $400 is a lot to throw down the  induction tract.....

                                      Maybe a 3 cyl engine.

                                      A FUEL POWERED ENGINE IS NOT A "MOTOR"!....sheesh.

                                      Electric motors are motors. GM and Ferd Motor Co. are WRONG.

                                      MOPAR is even worse.

                                          Less piss taking and giggling....more just getting on with it...would have been better. First run up test...the guy nearly gets his fingers sucked into the impeller.....clearly a serious pro. Aside from all the macho bs and posturing.....the vid was interesting. They needed to adjust the fuel and timing to get the best out of it. Turbo’s don’t only ram air in with no other tuning or matching to the engine.

                                                  obviously made for a small engine.. would make sense to need 2 of them on a V8 just like other v8 turbo cars
