Re: Added up to 20% HP ?????

<font face="Comic Sans MS">Junk. Worthless. I believe it'll actually hurt your performance. You guys know the reason they port and polish intake runners and exhaust ports right? To eliminate turbulence. This thing causes turbulence. The non turbulent mixture should carry fuel more efficiently than the turbulent mixture... [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif[/img] I rate this thing right up there with the "magnets"... [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif[/img] Just another way to seperate people from their dollars...

Notice they say "up to 20%"... This is to cover their a$$es from lawsuits resulting from false claims... [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif[/img] I'll shut up now that I've tossed my two copper pieces into the bin... [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif[/img]</font>

Re: Added up to 20% HP ?????

exactly cause they pose it as a super-charger(looked at them before!) but they really just rely on the air your engine intakes!!!! so they are nothing like a super-charger and they really rob your engine of its nutrients!!!

Re: Added up to 20% HP ?????

One of the US car magazines (Car & Driver or Motor Trend, I believe) did a dyno test of the Tornado thing and found that it slightly reduced power (by up to 2% at higher RPMs) due to the unit's restriction of airflow.

Just like that magic fuel line magnet that supposedly breaks up the gasoline molecules to increase the amount of fuel burned in the engine. That thing is hocus pocus too.

If the claims are too good to be true, then that's most likely the case. Stick to the tried-and-true hot-rodding techniques. [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

Re: Added up to 20% HP ?????

I was wondering to..they say a warranty of 150k and I dont know if the miles start when you start using it or the miles you have already got(probably the 2nd one cause hey it is a business world!!)..but it seems like it would work they had a guy on there with a caddy that had 300k on his motor and is running strong..I was just curious cause it does not seem like to many people have tried it!
