tornado

Whats up SPI's. I was looking through fousperformance.com and came across the "tornado". it claims to boost up 15 hp 17tq and 24% better gas milage. It sounds a little far fetched for only 70 bucks. Is this a scam or what? Sounds a little too good to be true.

Even if you dyno it, you ain't going to get 24% more gas mileage, shit every car on the planet would be getting one of those installed with these gas prices. Also, 15HP, not a chance. The air can be "tornadoed" into the TB all it wants, it doesn't effect anything except your wallet. Buy a real performance product instead.

I hope to see a class action lawsuit someday against that company. Its all bs. Dont buy into it. Go with adding bolt ons and get real power.

it does work. my friend used it to try and test it out. it did help out his gas mileage and gave his car a little extra horsepower.
