    No its a gimmick like the vortex insert. Any yes, if the dealer or Hyundai gets wind that you installed one they would most likely kill your warranty.

    In order to have warranty voided, there has to be a connection between the mod and the failure.

    Right....and if you have an engine issue and they see that you can kiss your warranty goodbye.

    There is no magic chip, charger, filter, intake, etc that will make a magic 50hp. End of story.

    I actually built something like the "echarger" for my 2002 Tundra back in 01 I took a electric ducted fan module that produced 15 lbs of thrust from a RC airplane put in a mechanical speed controller so that under low throttle position it was producing about 1lb and under WOT it was fully spooled up. Took the contrapton to a buds Dyno and lost 5 hp due to the restriction in the intake. I put the parts back in the RC vehicles and that was the last of it untill I saw some thread in a forum bout 2008 where some guy did the same thing but instead decided to sell the snake oil.

    If making power was a simple as turning on an electric fan, every car would have one.

    Somebody could make a fortune designing a foot operated bellows pedal to ram more air into the induction system. When additional power was desired, just stomp furiously on the pedal...and hang on!

    as this is a ridiculous thread and I have not bee on very often to do it...i'm lock this up! ANYTHING put infront of the intake manifold that is not a SIGNIFICANT pressure differential (turbo or Supercharger (ran from the belts of the vehicle) are going to cause a restriction and power WILL suffer...not to mention mpgs ect.
