Give him a break. He was just asking.


Anyways, the whole thing doesn't make sense to me. If it does in fact swirl the air as it moves through the Intake pipe, then it would be disrupted by the throttle plate, wouldn't it?

Yeah, here we go again. Sure it applies to all cars, but makes no difference in HP or fuel economy. A waste of money. More so than the flux capacitor for our cars at $20. The Tornado costs like 3 times that. The George Forman grill is the only worthwhile TV infomercial that I would even consider buying. I would rather hook that up to my throttle body than a Tornado. Cut down on those pesky gas hikes, cut back on the fat/grease while your at it, and cook a burger at the same time. What more can you want.

Whoa whoa whoa ... back the truck up!

Are you saying that the stuff sold on late-night infomercials doesn't always work exactly like they say?

I need a lollipop.

Ahahahaha... rofl
As Heph said, the George Foreman grill is awesome...I remember when I wanted that device that was handheld...looked like a stapler...and it would seal baggies...it had a good concept...when you pushed it down...it created a short in the battery and caused heat on the two terminals...which would melt the plastic too seal it...TOO BAD IT DIDNT WORK!

I bought one for my car.

I attached it behind my leaf blower FI setup, and I get 50 PSI.

just apply simple logic bro,

the engine is basically an air pump,
sticking this into the Intake stream, will destroy the air flow comming in, you will LOSE hp and not gain any.

think of it like your out door hose, go out side turn it on, and then put a kink in the hose, what happens to the water flow? it abruptly stops.

same thing happens with this inside your Intake tract
