i know 20/28 isnt a "bad" mpg rateing, but hey.....it could always be better. what do you think about one of these two products?

Ive heard that neither pf these work really well so i was wondering on your input.

TORNADO - http://www.tornadoair.com/payback.php

SpiralMax - http://www.tornadoair.com/payback.php

E36DRIFTER is an unknown quantity at this point
I'm skeptical. a friend with a LT1 firebird installed one. we didn't notice a difference in mileage or hp. the only thing I can see it doing is restricting airflow which we all know is not benificial.

95 m3

GET SIDEWAYS!!!!!!!!

i got one for free and it honesty helps with MPG, but as for HP i doubt youd feel anything. honestly its probably like 1-2 hp gain if any. but hey i got mine for free. it sits at the bottom of my CAI after my air filter.

I've heard they have a tendency to shift in the feeder hose (or wherever you put them) that in turn actually blocks air flow. I've also heard that they are a POS and that 'tornado' type air movement is actually not so good for combustion, or some such shizz.

nearly impossible the damn thing is pretty hard to put in let alone shift considering what it is.
