I figure that I should get at least a +70 HP increase at a minimum for under $500 if I get 4 of those Tornado things, put them in series for a cascaded wind tunnel effect to increase the air vortex in to the throttle body/intake, put may be 2 of the those TB spacers for amplification of the air in to the intake, and the electric supercharger to feed the intake...

I don't see how they can see that TB spacer gives you more horsepower, I mean the hole is only so big. That kind crap shouldn't be allowed on eBay.

Hey, there is a saying that goes, "If is sounds too good to be true, it probably is."
I'm afraid that is the case with the cheapo HP add-ons. I spoke at length with a tuning shop mech ( actually I think he was the owener) and they dyno most every new gadget they get.
Electric-supercharger-no go.
Tornado-no go.

Remember, in theory lots of stuff sounds good, but what matters is where the rubber meets the road or the dyno. If it works, it will register on the dyno.

BTW, one item that he thought would not work, but did increase 3 wheel HP was some contraption that takes the static out of the electrical system. ( I forget what it is called) Apparently it cleans up the electronic informantion so the ecu is more effecient, accurate, and there you have it, 3 more whp. Cost about $170 installed and I'm thinking about doing it.
