EJF has morphed into a company supplying "blowers" for race cars. There are many components and subsystems in a race car that need a lot of cooling air. The fans that EJF now produce are tunable to the exacting needs of each installation. EJF no longer has any sales within the model community.

I have been supplying a company that does electric "turbos" using EDF for years, usually my Extreme Alloy 90mm variants. I have also done custom fans for extraction systems underground, and mobile asbestos extraction units using my 5" fans. Some have even used them for long air intakes on generators and there are guys using my fans in EDF RC drag cars!

Don't tell the customers of the "turbo" company that they won't work

Why not? To increase the power of an IC engine the intake air has to be compressed. And unlike real turbos or superchargers EDFs aren't compressors

My point too years ago, but they do actually register a gain when dyno'ed, I guess its all subjective

My cats would go on the kitchen counter all the time. One time pointing my EDF at them and they came down pretty quick. Since then, no more cats on the counter.
