I'd be willing to bet you that all of those cars you're talking about have a CAI....custom or aftermarket. Nice, straight airflow. That'* why the screen can be removed. Trust me, I've been there. The bonneville, or more specifically, the 3800, is a totally different animal. The Tornado is a joke. Ask a professional engine builder or a speedshop......as long as you can take the ribbing you'll get from them!
You want performance? Stay away from the Tornado. It will either do nothing, or it will HURT performance. Either option is bad, and you're out the money. Don't bother putting magnets on your fuel lines, either. We have over 300 members here. Most of them have modified intakes, and NONE are running the Tornado.
