Tornado intake management system

just really wanted your take on the tornado, does it work or is it just a ploy to get my money? I’ve listened to you guys for years now and always love the show and advice!

Scam /thread

Scam. Doesn’t do anything. Waste of money.

Exactly what he said ^

Doesn’t work. They ran tests on the tornado and found it didn’t improve engine performance and in some cases degraded engine performance. http://smallbusiness.aol.com/business-auto-center/article/_a/gas-saving-devices-remain-unproven/20081024150309990001?icid=200100397x1212590831x1200774813

Scam…Waste of money…Does not work. It actually impedes airflow into the engine.

Total BS!
