    Hello I am planning to do a few upgrades for my hyndai, does anyone
    know if
    this suppercharger is any good?
    I also found a new air filter from k&n that is supposed to increase
    horse power.
    I am planning to increase my rims to 15" but i dont know if i can go
    to 16.

    dunno, but i'm led to believe the alpha engine in the Accent isn't
    really strong enough to do too much to. Word i hear is you'd be better
    to find a beta engine from an Elantra or other. They do fit without
    too much fiddling.
    The word you're looking for there is "power" horse power or horsepower
    went out when they stopped making steam powered TVs. How many drivers
    even know what a horse looks like? power is measured in watts or in
    car's case Kilowatts.
    k&n may increase your power but it almost certainly will increase the
    amount of dust that gets into the engine. Of course k&n will never
    admit that, mainly i suppose because nobody's ever going to be able to
    prove that engine damage was caused by it. The only real effect being
    the reduction of an engines life from a very long time to only fairly
    long time.
    i believe they can go to 17 and possibly further but i hope you have
    good roads to drive on.
    before you start it may be a good idea to measure how well it's going
    before you modify it, because it may just become a memory. most
    modified cars are probably slower than stock but give the owner lots
    of satisfaction by being loud, uncomfortable and using a lot of fuel.
    Have fun.

    "Horsepower" is still used as a measure of power here in the United
    State. It equals .746 KW.

    By it's own definition, this is not a supercharger.
    A real "supercharger" has at least one moving part.
    This does not. Please do not waste your money on this.

  5. No, it just another piece of junk "gimmick" that will do nothing but
    drain your wallet. There are NO magic solutions to dramatically
    increasing horsepower. If such things actually worked, ALL cars would
    come with them from the factory.
