Any body seen the info-commercial about that stainless steel gizmo ya put in the air inlet duct or on top of the air filter base?
It is called a tornado or cyclone.
"INCREASE YOUR MPG ADD UP TO 20 HP INSTANTLY!" What a crock. How can they make claims like that?


very funny Scotty, now beam down my clothes

They use them on throttle bodies for the LT-1 engines because it smoothes the airflow comming into the throttle body because the way its shapped causes some SERIOUS turbulence

LOL this came up on the forum before. I said it was from RoboCop, someone else said it was from some other movie. I know for sure its in RoboCop, its when those bad guys are blowing up the city, and robocop shows up, some used car salesman is in a store window (on TV) saying "I'd buy that for a dollar". Classic....

What happens if you combine the tornado with the exhaust tip with the door from the JC Whitney catalog?

With that thing and a Type R sticker you should be able to do the 1/4 mile in under 10 sec. with iron duke yet.

I'm partially color-blind, but to me it looks like the baseline has better torque and HP that the tornado.
