Default Tornado Fuel Saver

Has anyone tried one of these fuel savers as advertised on TV?

Don't bother. It slows your incoming air down too much, and really isn't worth the $60 or whatever for some bent up metal/plastic.

They dont work, just blocks the air passages and makes things worse, especially with a super charger
Do a little search, has been debated before.

A couple of items have been hotly debated.

1. Stay away from Floz superchargers
2. No Tornado

I don't know if they've been "debated" at all.... If cheap things like these worked, manufacturers would have done them a long time ago.

3. Whether you should use a Bra on the front of a 2000+.

(I vote... bad idea)
