Oh man, you didn't just ask this. If you can delete it, do it quickly. You can send me the money for the Tornado thing, and I will send you back nothing, and you will see the same amount of gain as you would if you had installed the Tornado thing.

Actually you'd see more of a loss with the Tornado thing...:uppoint:

I got one of those for x-mas, it really did not make a difference. I felt bad that one of my family members actually spent money on that garbage. But its the thought that counts .... well actually not. Theoretically it makes you go slower because it adds weight to your car. ;)

See why I told you to delete that first post? Actually, I am going to say this was a pretty tame exchange on the subject.

Hey Dr, I think you will find the stainless O-maf to be even more effective.
More power and the finish goes better with the hoses. However it does require cowl hood!

Lee, I can see why you would be confused. It makes a lot of sence to make the air spin. You can theoretically move more air that way. Flush the toilet and watch the water. It goes faster moving in a circle then stright down (velocity). On paper the thing works. However. At what point does your car move enough air that it actually becomes a restriction, and what point do the aftermarket bolt ons make it work the best. I wondered about it and was gonna look for one on a garage sale and take it to a Dyno. That was years ago and now I have lost interest. If they were such a great deal...You would see them for sale in Hot Rod, Car Craft, Muscle Mustangs and Fast Thunderbirds, and 5.0. My advise to you, go with what others know. DONT DO IT!

Take the money that you're going to spend on the Tornado and do this, you'd probably gain more horsepower anyways:

1) Buy a piece of plywood and a few 2x4's.
2) Make a little standing area, and attach it to your bumper, so you have pieces of wood standing out of the front of the car.
3) Hire an illegal to stand in front of your car, while you drive, for 2 bucks an hour.
4) Have him put his lungs to good use by standing on the 'standing area', and blowing air onto the front of the car.


I know, I give some damn good advice.

I'd rather go to autozone for free code reading and be slapped than go to a shop, pay 60 bucks, and be raped
