HAHAHAHAHAHA !!! Look in any marine dealers catalog in the "bilge blowers" section. A bilge blower is a fan encased in a tube that sucks combustible fumes from the engine area of a boat and vents it through a plastic tube out into the topside of your boat. Where do you think this E-Ram came from ? They go for $40, I'll sell you as many as you want for $100, and they'll all work just as good as they did for this guy, NOT. SHEESH, the things people fall for,,,


The Eram is NOT a bilge blower and has been dyno proven, in front of 7-10 CEG'ers no less, at a 9HP gain at peak HP and gains of 30+ HP at certain RPMs. Huge gains (if I do say so myself) were realized across the boards on my then lowly little SE and I ran down SVT Contours at the '99 National CEG meet in K.C. with nothing more than this Eram,a CAI and a KKM. Take a look for yourself. Not bad for a model airplane engine, eh?

You saw 30HP gains!
Keeps the HP & TQ numbers nice and high at the higher RPMs'.
Looks great between 5000 and 6000 RPM's,
(which is where my car lives in the 1/4 mile).
That should help my 1/4 by quite a bit if I see even half that.
Makes me want even more!

At certain RPMs, the gains were at/near/or over 30 HP. Click on my posted link, then on the '99 K.C. Nats tab. Before anyone claims B.S. because it's an Excel file instead of a real dyno plot, know this... The real dyno plots were sent via snail mail to none other than Ray McNairy and he entered them into the spreadsheet file and compiled them for everyone to see.

I saw the dyno plot (excel file), finally.
Like I said, looks really good between 5G's and 6G's.
Which is where my car lives when running a 1/4 mile.
I would hope for to shave 2 or 3 tenths off my time with those kind of gains.

Brad....What happened to your e-ram...Why are you not running it now?

Fell off on the interstate along with my KKM. Make sure those hose clamps are tight enough to hold the Eram on the car, but not to tight to crush the fan blades!!!

Wow...That sucks... I have always been interested but skeptical in the E-RAM. I wonder if it would benefit someone like myself more because of the altitude us coloradins live at? There is absolutely no air here. Never have to worry about running out of fuel when tuning though!

In my current install, the e-RAM is entirely invisible inside two big rubber sewer pipe connectors -- all you see is the wires sticking out between them. The fan isn't going anywhere without the whole intake... but that bracket they provide for the CTA is kind of light-duty. Fortunately, my foam-core heat shield helps keep the pipe from flopping around, so the bracket should last, I think.

Last time I was up in the mountains, my Zetec felt terribly underpowered. If I was up there all the time, I'd probably see the point of buying a V8 SUV...

As to whether an e-RAM will work better or worse at high altitude, I can't say. Best case scenario: reduced air resistance enables it to spin to higher RPM, enabling the same absolute boost which becomes a larger percentage gain than at sea level. Wouldn't be surprised if that's an overoptimistic scenario, though.
