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

Has Anyone Tried The "tornado" Unit ? Does It Really Increase Power And Fuel Mileage ?

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

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.

I would never buy one anyway, but have any auto magazine's ever tested one?

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.

gee Jerry - I like the new whistle sound on mine. I thought I'd try it to see - but now I just kind of like that Semi truck sound.

Both posts merged and moved down to the forum with all of the rest of the similar questions.

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.
