tornado fuel saver

My friend told me about this tornado fuel saver thing and i checked it out on the net and was wondering if it would actually add power on celicas. Have any of yall heard of it or actually have it in your cars? Also wondering if it would turn the check engine light on. thanks.

Save your money. There have been number of discussions on this topic. The result is that it doesn't do a damn thing.

My friend has it in his eclipse and he told me that it
doesn't save you gas,but you do get
hp(not in low rpms, only over 4500rpms
you will notice the difference!)
He dyno it and he got 6whp at 6000rpms! grin It's kinda interesting though!!
I don't know maybe he is bs I don't know it's up to someone to try it! thumbsup

what kind of eclipse was it? the base at 147hp or the top of the line one? does he have a dyno seat or is he guessing by feel?
