    Billie, your going to get a ton of "opinions"

    Here`s mine: back in the carb`d days, this would sit on top of the air horn and "kinda" redirect or stabilize air flow into the venturi for supposedly better atomization, okaaaayyyyy, ya sure

    with FI engines and installing this into the tube, you have several restrictions in the path, air flow noise surpressors, on some applications, MAF sensors, then the TB`s...
    I personally don`t see it doing jack in a dry intake set-up, or any other for that matter...PR...

    Billie, I have used them and in some vehicles it helps and some it doesnt. I think it has a lot to do with how well the air intake on the vehicle was designed from the factory.

    Most will tell you it is snake oil, I will say its not.

    I have sold probably 100 of them and they do have a customer satisfaction policy, I would think that I would have heard a complaint if they didnt do anything.

    How can it put a swirl into the air stream when it has to pass the throttle body blade,
    Billie you`d be better off with one of those billet spacers that go behind the TB...PR...


    I really don`t care how many are sold and how many are sitting on the garage shelf with the guy asking himself why oh why did i waste my money on this peice of shit...

    It`s Crap...

    Sorry B I just had to.

    I have installed a few of these over the years and no one really complained... either way.

    I think its a psychological thing... kinda like you notice how your car runs much better after you wash it ?

    WFO, that`s funny...
    I totally respect You and alot of the yami/polaris/honda/ and yes SeadPoo guru`s, I just had to be the negative voice on this one...

    with all your experiences and knowledge, you know what I`m talking about with air flow and velocity etc...

    it`s a gimmick at a time back when the gas prices were on the rise, so once again this is the magical solution to getting better MPG, no way...

    oh, and my van is faster after it`s been washed, waxed too! ...PR...
