Tornado

Anyone Out There Ever Try The Tornado Unit That Fits In The Air Intake Hose ? Does It Really Increase Power & Fuel Mileage ?

Nope, it's junk. Doesn't do anything for mileage or power. All it does is remove money from your wallet.

Ahhhh yes, now what was it old P. T. Barnum said....................

Something about the birth rate of hard sugared candies on sticks.................


But they do go along with the great tradition of wild Bill Cody's moto

It's morally wrong to let suckers keep their money!

It increases power by decreasing vehicle weight by the ounces of a few bills, while decreasing seat padding and giving you a tiny bit more feeling of the power of your car. If you've watched the infomercial, the blond headed bimbo from Hawaii, is the intelligence level of the prospective customer they are looking for.

Nothing wrong with the tornado at all. It works great. It will suck the money out of your wallet and deposit it right in the shyster's pockets.

Are people STILL really asking about this kind of stuff?

Oh well, maybe it just seemed like every other poster to the 4 cylinder forum at RPS asked about either a TB spacer or Tornado.....hope that doesn't start to happen here.

Checkout last month's or this month's Popular Mechanics. None of the "fuel savers", especially the Tornado, work--some were found to be even dangerous! They did mileage and horsepower on the dyno, with and without the product.
