I'm thinking maybe I could get a little computer fan from Fry's instead, and save $150...

I showed this to my mechanic and we got a good laugh out of it.

When the fan's not running, it'll act like having a potato stuck in the intake. It has 2 positions: ON,OFF. So it's not variable to adjust to RPM like a "real" S/C. It'll lean out your motor until the computer compensates. And you can't run it for extended periods of time or it'll overheat (per their video)

I think I'll let someone else be the guinea pig and see what happens...
