Lightbulb What about an electric supercharger? serious q's

I have read all over this place about them and how much they suck (haha not literally, they blow jackasses). I already have done quite a few bolt on mods (ignition, intake, exhaust,etc....). and I really thought about it today while I was painting my old '42 Ford Jeep, we have this fan by stanley i think. It's from wally world, and it costed maybe 40 bucks, it is tiny, but puts out massive air. its a scuirrel cage type fan. and I was thinking you could put it in your car if you put the filter below the cut out in the engine bay (where mine is now) and ran it to the fan's intake. seal the fan up really good, then run the exhaust from the fan to the TB, what could happen? I'm sure it wouldn't be a huge HP boost. maybe 15 or so. but for maybe 60 bucks? ghetto as hell, but still. I would say that if you funnel it down and run it all right, the fan would make between 2.5-4 psi. then you run the wire back into the pass. compartment. where you have an AC/DC converter. and then you splice ito the wire on the fan for the on/ off switch. and the fan already has power outlet spots on the side. so you might be able to remove the clutch-tpye fand and put a box fan from wally in there too. lol. Ok, so I was joking about the last part, but hey worth a shot right? or I could just rip up the one we have here right?

Any comments thought or ideas?

Your battery/alternator would not be able to keep up with an electric supercharger that actually could make a difference. This idea has been tried repeatedly it doesn't work.

And if that $60 hunk of junk breaks and gets in your engine?
How 'bout 0 psi?
You said it....Ghetto as hell.

That's just adding weight. I say save your time/money.
The air needs to be compressed, not just pushed by a fan.
Most likely, you will be hurting your car since the fan might not keep up with the engine, and it will act like another filter to the air
