My 1994 SE with 250,000 original kms came right back to life.
Why didn't you tell us before you had a 94 too? Put 'em in your sig. Got any pics of your Bonnes?

But with those 250,000 original kms, did you have the original wires? Did you have new plugs? What else was original? Because a plastic apparatus in your TB seems unlikely to bring an allegedly old engine "right back to life."

Right now i have a good mental image of this thing.. but if it 'takes under 5minutes to install' then why dont you take 10mins and take a picture of it...

I'm pulling a willwren here and asking for no more posting in this thread.

Baileyjack, despite the "pie in the sky" claims that you have made regarding the Fuel Genie product, you have yet to give us any real explanation of how this product works except for this statement.

The Fuel Genie is described as a fixed counter rotating screw (it does not move) and fits in the air intake hose 4 to 6 inches from the throttlebody. Hope some of this info helps more to follow
Air intake hose? Geez our air intake systems are restrictive enough. I beg you how does this add horsepower?

The website itself is less then informative. In fact its a big sales pitch, it has no substance. This forum has dealt with fraudulent products before. The ones that come to mind are Tornado and FLOZ.

Having your website in your profile linking to the Fuel Genie site is probably not a good endorsement of yourself. It comes off as subversive. I live in Mississauga and I do listen to Mojo radio once in a while. I will be listening to Guys Garage on August 8th. That being said, if a product is getting some air time I find it hard to believe that I had to come to in order to hear about the product.

If indeed this product is a miracle worker and gives you unsurpassed mileage and extra HP, then congratulations. Until we have some proof or a more reliable source, other then some vapid website, the criticism will continue.

I kindly ask all BonneviileClub members to call off any posting in this thread. Its degraded to the point of bickering and irritable poking.

Sorry Bill, but I had to break out your Virtual Lock. I'll return it shortly
