    Late in the 50's, there was another device on the market, labelled as a 'Mini-Supercharger'. This was a 2 barrel insert, with air-bleed driven impellers. The little spinning propelers were supposed to 'supercharge' your engine..

    Ever see the magnetic fuel filter that aligned the gasoline molecules and ...... hmmmm
