Is this worth the money?

I found something sort of like the "tornado"(the disk you put in the air intake tube) its supposed to give 35+ HP and 31% MPG. Its distributed by Spiralmax if any one knows about or has a part like this please tell me if its worth $70.00!!!

It's a hunk of metal that cost them 70 cent and sell to you for 70 bucks! It doesn't work whatsoever. A friend of mine got one for his Ranger. I think he got like 1 whole extra mile on a FULL tank of gas and I think 1/10 of a horsepower. Don't waste your money!

I found this and the reviews that I've found (none on a focus however) were pretty good. I'm thinking I might try this: http://wheelskin.com/Merchant2/merch...Code=SPE-20005

Hey, if you are interested in that, I have a pill that will make you lose weight magically, a pill that will add 3 full inches and a sure-fire method for becoming a millionaire.

Just send me $100 for all.
