has anyone ever tried the "turbonator"? it looks fuckin stupid to me. i'm just curious to see if anyone here has heard of anyone trying it or if they've tried it themselves. i'd never put that piece of shit on my car.

I don't know if it helps or not, but air does nove faster when it flows in a twisting motion. (hence, the airplane wing shape. the air on the top moves faster over the wing)

Here is a website I found where different people with the Tornado intake posted up what they thought about it. A couple said nothing happened, but way more people said the power increase was noticeable, but not really the gas mileage increase. I dunno. decide for yourself

AMG can't build an NA engine that can compete with M engines, so they stick in a supercharger and say their cars are faster. BMW could simply do the same, but they don't out of principle.</span>

but people also say that those enlargment pills make your pecker bigger......
now there is a lawsuit against the companies for millions......

the point: sometimes when you want something to work, it will, even though it really doesn't....your mind plays tricks on you.
it sounds plausable, but the platinum 4 spark plugs are supposed to work better than 2 and thats B.S.

yeah i know. its called the placebo effect.


i just want to see some dynos. then i will believe it.


and the reason for platinum plugs being bullshit is cause electricity always jumps to the neares point so if one of those tips is the smallest bit bent inward which they are. the electricity jumps to the same point every time.
