don't believe everything you see/read

I don't see how that could possibly work. you just put it in your air intake. I think it's just more junk.

One of the single biggest ripoffs in the history of man.

Right up there with snake oil.

If you want to make more power, you change the intake of your car.

thanks for the info

im not looking to change my intake just get a little better MPG

RTO, I don't mean to bring down your hopes but it looks like another "as seen on TV" piece of crap.

Its a rip, versions of it have been sold before they were rips.

This thing is supposed to create a "swirling" effect in order to create better atomization of the air/fuel mixture, but on a modern fuel injected car it's worthless. By the time the air travels through the intake manifold and reaches the fuel injector at the head the airflow has pretty much smoothed out.
Don't waste your money. It' probably just going to create a restriction in your air intake.

By swirling the air you can see gains and better fuel mileage. But the tornado is just a POS. There are TB spacers that actually will work. They create more plenum volume and swirl the intake charge. They are usually made of billet aluminum and cost around $100. Dont expect 13hp though. You'de be lucky to see 2whp.

Those spacers can work, especially on a single plane intake with a carb or tb. But those spacers are placed AFTER the fuel and air are already mixed. On a car with port fuel injection, anything designed to create tuebulance in the intake will have almost no effect.

That is not true. TB spacers go just behind the TB. The air comes into the intake, through the MAF and then into the intake plenum. I am speaking of multiport injections. They also make them for old TB injection (carb type TB's) in which case the spacer is placed after the fuel and air mix as you said. In both applications they can yeild gains. Even a simple TB port w/ a bit of swirl in the porting effect will yeild gains. I have dyno tested it and it works.

Easiest way is to just buy a car that gets good gas mileage.
