Turbonator?

Is it really worth the 70 bucks...has anyone had any experience with them and if so, does it work good or just bs?

Take Care,

Dave

Every thing that I have been able to find says that these thinkgs DO NOT work on our trucks maybe some small improvement on carb vehicles but I doubt it if it was so great ppl would be yelling about it on here what with everyone looking for better gas mileage

Think about it.
Stick anything passive in the airstream and guess what will happen. Fuel injection will compensate for intake air flow changes anyway. Carb system would result in running a little richer perhaps but that sure as hell ain't gonna give you BETTER mileage.
Have yet to see any LEGITIMATE dyno tests. And I doubt I ever will.
With all the misinformation I am surprised there hasn't been some legal action - maybe there has ? For example - Horsepower gains UP TO XXX - that includes ZERO.

If it sounds too good to be true - it probably is.

It's complete bull****. If it was effective, they wouldn't need to hawk it on t.v. during commercial breaks on soap operas.

I figured the same, and that is enough feedback for me...lol.

Popular Mechanics tested several gas savers this month and they were all bogus.
